Question: Wed Nov 5th It was burning while urination and got worse throughout the day to the point where the pain was a 10 . went to Doctor Nov 6th he put me on ciprofloxacin and did urine test for STDs came up negative for all and there was no Growth in urine . Checked prostate and was not enlarged. Suggested I see urologist if I did not get better. I got worse, to the point where I could not even urinate I had to squeeze the head of my penis hard to get the urine to start to come out very weak steam and spraying when I urinate . I was oozing blood drops after I urinated. Went to Urologist Monday Nov 10th did another urine test told me he was sure it was Chlamydia - gave me 4 pills to take and sent me home . I got worse more blood in urine the pee hole was red and swollen severe pain when I urinate and still level 10 only way I can urinate was to squeeze myself because my pee hole was practically swollen shut. Went back to Dr on Wed Nov 12th because urine came back again negative for all stds. and now my eyes were blodshot red and enflamed as if I were cutting onions.. ( Not sure if it was related) Suggested I do an cytoscopy to check for blockages or anything else . There were no blockages , just severely irritation. Told me it was a severe case of urethritis , gave me a Shot that had some antibiotic in it , and put me on another antibiotic and have me some eye drops and anti inflammatory pills The following morning everything got better. I was able to urinate pain less went from a level 10 pain to a 4 then the following few days it went to a level 2 pain No Blood in or after urine. from 15th till today 11/19 I have XXXXXXX at a steady 2 as far as pain. I called the Dr and told him I had run out of antibiotic and if I should come in for more? I also told him when I get an erection it hurts feel like a sprained ankle . cant even touch my penis or move it cuz ill be in pain and discomfort. He told me that I had received every antibiotic under the sun and I just have to wait this out and it will get better .
Im just nervous that I have been at a steady 2 as far as pain and burning during urination and now the erection pain. Does this sound right ? Is this something I have to wait out at this point or could it be something else?

Brief Answer:
You have acute Urethritis.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have Acute Urethritis.
I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem.
1) Did you have unprotected sex before you started getting these symptoms?
2) Did you have any discharge from the urethra?
3) Have you done swab test of a fluid from Urethra?
4)Have you done urine culture ?

Since you are improving with antibiotics and ant inflammatory medicines continue the same one along with anti inflammatory medicines like Diclofenac twice daily.Normally it takes 2 weeks for such a severe infection to get cured .

Please do swab test and urine culture to trace out organisms causing this infection and antibiotic to which they are sensitive to ,so that you can take appropriate antibiotics,This will help to control the infection quickly.

Ensure to drink more water .This will keep your urine dilute and help to reduce dysuria.

Ensure to avoid any sexual activities till you get cured completely.

As regards pain during erection .It is due to inflammation of the urethra secondary to infection.This will get resolved once your Urethritis gets cured.

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions ,
I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.

yes, I was having unprotected sex. but was about a week or so before this happened, I was masturbating they day before this happened and I think it had something to do with that... I had taken an oxycodone for my knee pain and while masturbation I had lost my erection from my meds. I tried to masturbate with a no erection for about a half hour. Could I have hurt myself?

The urologist says that my 7 days of antibiotic are up I have no more meds left and the DR gave me just another 2 days of anti inflammatory and Uribel and told me that I would get better and dont need any more meds. Should I go back to him for more antienflamatory ? I did have all the urine tested and everything came back negative. today will be exactly 2 weeks since this happened and 1 week since I started to get better. I just want to know if theres anything else I can do.

Brief Answer:
Likely to be due to injury to urethra .

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for follow up.
Bleeding from urethra is mostly due to injury to urethra during sexual encounter .

Please consult qualified Urologist for clinical examination and get ultrasound scanning of penis done to rule out severe injury to urethra..

Take antibiotics and anti inflammatory medication for a week.

Ensure to avoid sexual encounter till it gets cured completely.

It should get resolved within a week.

Thanks and Regards.
