Many possibilities: Having an abnormal sensation when urinating can have many possible causes. Some possible causes include a urinary tract infection, a vaginal infection in women, urethritis, a kidney stone, a herpes infection, etc. It is important to seek the help of your physician to help delineate the cause.

Think doctor's visit: Could be infection in the urine, or maybe an std. In women, yeast infections can cause discomfort when urinating as well. You should see your doctor - you may need antibiotics or an antifungal, or at least a test on your urine.

Get a urine test: This could well represent a urinary tract infection (most commonly a bladder infection). However it could also be due to other things like a urethral infection, vaginal infection, skin irritation, or some other less common things.

It may be important: This may be a sign of a urinary tract infection or a vaginal infection of you are a woman, or a prostate infection if you are a man. If it burns, and certainly if there is an unusual discharge, then you should have this checked out by your doctor. If it just feels odd, drink more water to dilute the urine and see if this clears it up. If it doesn't, you still may want to have it checked out.

Should be evaluated: Symptoms when urinate such as burning, urgency, increased frequency, odor, incomplete emptying, pressure or odor can be signs of a urinary tract infection or other urinary tract problems. This requires evaluation by your physician.
