Thank you for the quick reply.
The symptoms you have described of having burning sensation during urination since this morning that goes away temporarily when you drink water and cranberry juice,this is most likely suggestive of a condition called urinary tract infection(UTI).The culprit in at least 90% of uncomplicated urinary tract infections(UTI) is a type of bacteria called Escherichia coli, better know as E. coli.
There are certain risk factors which make more prone to reccurence of UTI like kidney stones,narrowed urethra, not drinking enough fluids,sexual intercourse.
You need following tests:-Urinalysis-Urine culture & sensitivity test
When you drink water and cranberry juice,this flushes out some of the bacteria & you get temporarily relief.So my best advise for you is to please make an appointment with your doctor to have these tests done so as to know the exact underlying cause & then treatment with antibiotics will be done accordingly.Continue to drink plenty of water and cranberry juice.
Hope this helped.
