No it will not: Morphine withdrawl will not cause urinary symptoms and symptoms of uti.

Doubtful: Decresing morphine, to the degree it gives withdrawel, will begin with nausea and proceed in its usual way. If you are able to write this you are not in withdrawel. You may have a low pain threshold and sense more pain but you probably have a uti. If you have problems testing off morphine you may try suboxone. There is a chance, even with prolonged withdrawel, Suboxone would be better than not.
