Brief Answer:
Another stone or edema

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query, albeit short and specific.
Noted the history and understood your concerns.
Yes, the most probable reason may be another stone that is larger and impacted due to the size or due to the edema in the urethra caused by passage of the stone, cutting through and causing a valve like mechanism wherein straining increases the obstruction.
This can be easily diagnosed by the following:
Palpation of the base of urethra from outside or by per-rectal examination.
Ultrasonography.
Since you are taking lots of liquids it is possible that there may be enlarging urinary bladder that also needs to be taken care of by catheterization or so.
I would advise you to go to ER asap and get a proper diagnosis to get a proper management.

I hope this answer helps you.
