In brief: Other cause?

Your physician has access to the urinalysis and culture, but I am thinking of other possible causes, from early interstitial cystitis to a infection of the urethra by an organism such as chlamydia.
I trust you do not eat jalepino peppers. A follow-up with your physician is in order.

In brief: ?Resistant organism

Stinging is a symptom of UTI but usually associated with urgency and frequent urination.
Sometimes difficulty in initiating urination. Was urine culture obtained? Could be a resistant organism + different antibiotic required stinging may persist for a few days normally. Pyridium (phenazopyridine) 200 mg x3/day - max 5 days, may help. Non-prescription pills only 100mg. Consult dr if no relief. ?Other cause of symtom.
