Brief Answer:
Unlikely to be a urinary tract infection!

Detailed Answer:

I have reviewed this information fully. It is unlikely to be suggestive of a urinary tract infection in the absence of frequent painful urination in small quantities. I will recommend that you monitor closely to see if any of these symptoms set in so that you can report immediately for review and guidance.

Drink much water. Get some rest and do keep me updated.
