Thank you for posting your query.

In view of your recuurent complaints and positive urine tests but no definite diagnosis, you certainly merit a cystoscopy. Cystoscopy is nothing but passing a scope through your urethra and seeing the bladder from inside with camera. A biospy may also have to be done on yourself, if needed.

It may simply be benign intermittent spasms in the urinary tract. Please do get evaluated in detail by your Urologist. As I said earlier, a cystoscopy is worth doing.

Hope I have answered your query.
