Brief Answer:
You maybe suffering from urinary tract infection .

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

It seems you are suffering from urinary tract infection .
Drink plenty of water. Water helps to dilute your urine and flush out bacteria. Avoid drinks that may irritate your bladder. Avoid coffee, alcohol, and soft drinks containing citrus juices or caffeine until your infection has cleared.
Some evidence shows that increasing your intake of vitamin C could protect against urinary tract infections.
Vitamin C is thought to work by increasing the acidity of the urine, thereby killing off the bacteria that cause infection .
Fruits and vegetables are especially high in vitamin C and are a good way to increase your intake.
Drinking unsweetened cranberry juice is one of the most well-known natural remedies for urinary tract infections.

Probiotics are beneficial microorganisms that are consumed through food or supplements. They can promote a healthy balance of bacteria in your gut.
Probiotics are available in supplement form or can be found in fermented foods, such as kefir, kimchi, kombucha and probiotic yogurt.
These are all you can do at home , if not relief then consult doctor .

I hope this answers your query.
