Difficult to establish a diagnosis solely on the basis of the symptoms listed. Urinary tract infection, interstitial cystitis (painful bladder syndrome), incomplete bladder emptying would all be possibilities to consider. A thorough history, physical exam, urinalysis and urine culture, post-void residual urine, and possible cystoscopy would help determine cause. Recommend seeing a urologist.

Burning on urination occurs with a bladder infection or inflammation of the urethra. The bladder diverticulum may make you prone to bladder infections. A urinalysis and urine culture with a colony count detects infection of the urinary tract.If your tests show no infection, perhaps drinking adequate amounts of fluid daily as well as cranberry juice would prevent uti's. Discuss with your urologist.
