Customer Question

Back on the 11th, I went to urgent care with what I thought was UTI symptoms-low backache,& Burning after urination. Both the test in the office and the culture they sent out came back negative. While those symptoms are gone, I am left with the feeling that I need to urinate all the time-going does not releave the sensation, it's quite uncomfortable. She told me to follow up with the gynecologist if the symptoms didn't go away, but there are no appointments available until 4 of January. I've been trying to drink more water.Can you offer any insight?On a sidenote, I had a full physical on December 3-All blood work was normal.
