What could be causing bladder pain ?

For the past 4 days I have been experiencing minor/moderate pressure in my bladder while urinating. It does not burn while urinating, rather i have a lot of pressure and it feels like i have to push harder to completely void. At first I was not too concerned because I had no other symptoms and I thought it could have been because I held my urine for too long. However in the past day or so I have been experiencing cloudy urine and the pain/pressure in the bladder lasting for some time after I urinate. My mom suggested it could be a UTI/bladder infection although I have no other symptoms of one. NO increased frequency, no fever, burning etc as I have experienced with previous UTIs so I do not think it is one. My main concern is that I was born with vesicoureteral reflux which was corrected by surgery when I was 5 years old (I'm 21 now) and I'm curious if this could be related because I do not believe it is a UTI. Also I do not have a PCP and I do not think this is urgent enough to go to the emergency room. Any advice on what I should do to relieve the pain/pressure or any ideas of what could be causing this?

Hello, welcome to Healthcaremagic. First of all you need to inform me about your gender. In case it seems to be a case of cystitis which can occur due to infection. But it could also be due to several other reasons like renal stones or UTI. There can be different presentation of UTI which may not necessarily involve burning micturition. You must visit a urologist to get diagnosis and further treatment. Till than you must drink plenty of fluids as it can help you flush out some of infective agents. Wish you good health.
