Negative C;S= no UTI: Ur correct in questioning diagnosis of UTI in absence of positive urine culture. Ur symptoms are likely musculo-skeletal. Did dr check ur spine, sacroiliac joints ; hips by inspection ; palpation? You might need conventional x-rays of lumbar-sacral spine ; pelvis. Dr probably suspected because u had a UTI 6 months ago. Might consider seeing rheumatologist or orthopedist. Good luck.
