Last week, I've been experiencing: Urge to urinate

Customer Question

For the last week, I've been experiencing:
Urge to urinate and when I do it takes it a little time for it to expel. Then, after going I feel as if I have to go again. There is some burning sensation as well. NO pain.
I just went in yesterday to have a urine test and it all came back normal.
Is this a UTI that possibly wasn't detected in the urine test?
