How long can I wait with stinging urination to see if it goes away without seeing a doctor?

In brief: Not long

A urinary tract infection can be quite serious and lead to kidney damage.
Treatment is pretty straight forward and well tolerated.

In brief: Don't wait

I assume you are a woman.
Urinary tract infection, or even possibly vaginitis may result in burning on urination. Get the cause diagnosed and treated appropriately before it can progress and produce something worse.
