Hello I have a question. For about 3 weeks now I ve had painful urination. The funny thing is that I get a burning sensation only after I urinate. I drink lots of water, no alcohol, not a single drop nor do I smoke. I m 21, yes I don t a drink or smoke, my primary care provider said it could be an STD that Is causing this. I was tested for chlamydia, syphilis, and gonorhea, all negative. Three urine cultures, everything normal. No genital warts. My prostate was also examined and everything is fine. I was given azythormycin, doxycycline, a shot of penicillin, and pyridium. Nothing helped. I saw a urologist and all I was a diagnosed with was dysuria. I m worried and I do not know what is causing this problem. Do yall have any idea?

i had a UTI a few weeks ago and took 3 days of antibiotic. Since then there are times when I feel like I need to urinate or have painful urination. I had a urine test done this morning and no problem. I have been trying cranberry pills. I am 64, weigh 145 and take a statin and blood pressure pill. I am in good health overall. Have been exercising and reducing calories to lose weight to get to my target of 135 and want to come off the statin and blood pressure meds. Could the Crestor contribute to my current urinary problems?
