Burning during urination. Cramps & heaviness in lower abdomen. No UTI. Prescribed Bactrium. Suggestions?

I went to the doctor this past saturday because I thought I was getting a UTI . They did a urine sample and according to the doctor the urine anaylsis come negative for any white blood cells. So he said I had no infection however, my private area continues to burn especially when I m peeing. I have weird cramps in my lower abdomen and I feel the sense of heaviness in my lower stomach. I have an appointment in two days. the doctor regardless that I had no infection prescribed me bactrium but told me to only take it if it got worst. should i take these or what exactly should I do? I am really worried and I m stressing out.

Thanks for the query.
You need to get a urine culture if its not done already. This will confirm if you have a bacterial infection.
If the culture is negative, you can stop the antibiotics for a week and may repeat the test.
Also get an ultrasound of the kidneys and bladder. I would also recommend a gynaecology check up.
Hope this helps
good luck
