I have been treated for a UTI and recent UA/cultures have come back negative for infection. I still feel that urgency to urinate and it feels like all of the nerve endings in my *private* areas are raw. I have the common UTI symptoms: burning, urgency, passing only small amounts of urine (unless I drink a gallon of water and then it will flow like normal, but I always retain some and have to go 5 minutes later and that won't come out =) ) I've tried OTC and rx pyridium plus for the discomfort, Valium and Vicodin to try to get some relief. I am supposed to have a urodynamics test done....in 2 WEEKS....what can I do to get this to go away? I even went to the ER, thinking they could give me a shot of a local anesthetic *down there*(I would take it at this point!) If only the doctor scheduling this testing 2 weeks away could feel this...any advice?
