This just started today, but I feel like I have to pee often and when I do almost nothing comes out and it kind of hurts. I might just be a UTI, but I'm scared it might be an STD or something. I've had a UTI before and it feels like what's going on, but I just wanted to get someone elses opinion. I might even be nothing, i dont know.

Urinary and Bladder Disorders Answer A28619
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

The first possibility for your symptoms if UTI. In absence of any UTI, other causes which may cause such symptoms are urethral syndrome, any blockage in the flow of urine like any scar tissue, injury (as in a car wreck or bad fall), blood clots, infection, tumors in the pelvic region, and stones, infection or due to disruption of the delicate and complex system of nerves that connects the urinary tract with the brain and the nervous system.

I suggest you an immediate urologist’s evaluation to check out these possibilities and confirm the diagnosis after investigations. You will need a complete urine examination and a urine culture.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
