I am a 32 year old male. A little over a month ago, I had an impacted wisdom tooth extraction. I was given vicodin and cepha-something, an antibiotic to prevent infection. About 3 days later, I noticed that I had to get up to pee frequently at night. About a week later my lower abdomen started feeling swollen, or as if pressure was being applied to it. Also the urge to urinate increased, even when I only had to pee a few drops. My urine stream was also weak, and I had interrupted urination. I would start and stop a couple of times. I was feeling like that for about 3 days and then went to see a doctor. He asked about my sexual history, took a few blood tests for STD's, infections, HIV, cholesterol, sugar etc. Also took a urine analysis. I was scared, because I feared diabetes was behind this. Well, the doctor gave me a RX for a generic for Bactrim DS, SMZ-TMP DS 800-160. He told me to take the medication twice a day.

After a four or five days, the abdominal pressure and constant urge to urinate were gone. Every symptom was gone, except for the start and stop urination. I went back for a followup after ten days. The blood tests came back negative for everything except high cholesterol. The urine sample also came back negative for bacteria. The doctor gave me Doxazosin 2 MG, a generic for Cardura. He also gave me another round of SMZ-TMP. I've been on them for the last 3 days. When I masturbate, I feel a burning-like pinch which lasts a few seconds. I held off for a week and tried again in an attempt to see if there was relief, but no luck. Do I have prostatis? BPH? What can it be? The doctor wants to see me for a follow-up and he's also referring me to a urologist. I want to have an idea as to what it might be that ails me.

I have started taking tea from an herb named horsetail and also 2-3 drinks from one made from cornsilk. That's what a cousin of mine suggested. I dont know what to do.
