Detailed history.: It is important to note all signs and symptoms to arrive at a diagnosis. Pain with urination can be indicative of several conditions, including urinary tract infection, muscular spastic pain, vesicoureteral reflux, and stricture among others. It is also important to repeat the question, to track changes in this symptom over time.
