Get urine checked: You can go back to see your doc, or you can go to an urgent care. Either place they'll have you pee in a cup and dip in a test strip, to check the chemistry of your pee. If it's an infection, you'll get an infection and if it burns, you'll get med for that. Keep the water going, and get antibiotics if you need 'em.
