Urethra Pain After Shower

This happened to me for the first time two days ago, and then again just tonight. After my shower before bed I go to urinate, and there is this terrible pain which seems to be occurring in the urethra, so I decide to stop urinating before completion. But the pain does not stop there. Any time I touch or move my penis I get a sharp pain again that seems to be from the urethra. All I can do is lie in bed still, because if my penis moves I get the same sharp pain. The first time it happened I just went to sleep and by morning the pain was gone and I was able to urinate. Tonight it seems to have taken an hour or two and the pain seems to be gone. I have not tried to urinate yet, so I am not sure if the pain will be back again if I try to urinate. So to recap, this problem happened two days ago, but did not happen yesterday after my before bed shower, but then happened again tonight after my before bed shower. Really weird, and it is kind of freaking me out. Any ideas? Thanks.

  • Immediately after I made my previous post I urinated and there was no pain. So I can now make the conclusion that what I know about my situation is that sometimes after I shower when I urinate, it happened in two of the past three days, I have a pain that occurs what seems to be in my urethra. I am unable to finish peeing, in fact only a small squirt is able to come out without me stopping due to pain. In addition my penis continues to hurt for two hours afterwards when touched or moved in any way. For the next several days I not going to urinate after a shower and see if the pain occurs when moving or touching/squeezing my penis.My naive guess would be that the warmth and/or humidity of the shower environment is causing an irritation in my urethra, or disturbing an irritation that already exists and causing it to flair up.Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
