See an OB/GYN: I know you said you cannot see a doctor, but if the issue is payment you may be able to find a women's clinic near you which will take your income into account and either reduce the cost or allow you to pay it off gradually. Obviously this needs to be taken care of. Wish I could do more, but you need an examination.

Infection: Infection (viral or bacterial) is the most common cause. The infection may not be due to an STD. Brucellosis can also cause it, (per wikipedia). If you've had trauma to the urethra, it can do it, tool. Sometimes an infection will not be evident on routing testing. Many docs would try an round of antibiotics even if cultures negative. If you aren't getting answers from your doc, get 2nd opinion

What can cause an inflammed urethra no STD or infection and what symptoms can it cause?

Allergic reaction: Inflammation is typically due to some type of reaction, whether it be to an environmental allergen or an infection, or even the body's own immune system attacking itself. If infection has been ruled out, it could be an allergic reaction, there could be a foreign body there. Symptoms would be pain and pressure sensation combined. A urologist could put a camera in the urethra to check it out.

If you have throat lesions -whitish, you could have your doctor check a throat culture to see what is going on good luck!

HIV is not this: No. Absolutely not. HIV is a virus and is spread throughout the body by blood. It does not cause any specific infection such as epidydimitis. Your question is so far out of left field I am having a hard time figuring out what you are really asking. Do you have HIV?

Can hpv cause fatigue and flue like symptoms? I have been diagnosed 2 years ago. I'm negative to all other stds and all bloodworks are normal.

Not HPV: HPV doesn't cause fatigue or any other systemic symptoms. Also, with 2 years having passed, it is likely your HPV infection has been cleared by your immune system and is now gone. However, if you (still?) have genital warts, see a doctor for treatment.

I'm a male with burning in my urethra about a week after unprotected sex. If this symptom is caused by an std, then will I test positive, right?

Generally: By the time you have symptoms you can usually test positive. The trick is letting your doc know so s/he will order the appropriate testing. They don't read minds. If they know your concern they can look into it.

Which STD's are likely to cause Meatitis but show no other symptoms? The "lips" of my penis are red and inflamed. NO pain, lesions or other symtoms

Which STD's are likely to cause Meatitis but show no other symptoms? The "lips" of my penis are red and inflamed. NO pain, lesions or other symtoms

Hard to say: If you have unprotected sex you can get an STD and one that has no symptoms at all at first! A few can do this. However, a red meatus can also be due to contact irritation from soaps, bodycare products inc. Lubricants. Use unscented soaps and detergents. Avoid fabric softeners, lotions and sprays in that area. But!!! Get checked for an STD since it appears you have not been using protection.
