So this is kind of embarrassing, but here goes. Awhile back I started noticing pain in the urethra of my penis. I had been with the same girl for a little while so I wasnt worried about diseases. Eventually I started noticing redness on my penis and decided to go to the doctor. They ran me through a bunch of tests and determined I had no STD's. Ultimately they said they dont know whats wrong with me. I later started noticing that my urine was always darker and had a strong odor. I also started noticing some light to severe back pain at times. And recently My back is constantly hurting and I feel weak, exhausted, dizzy and have a constant headache. Im also not sure if this is related, but Ive been having some digestion issues as well. I could really use some advice here because I feel generally awful on a daily basis.

If all forms of urinary infections and STDs have been ruled out, then it is more likely that your urinary pain would be due to irritation of the urethra due to nonspecific inflammation.

In most cases the condition would subside on its own without the need for treatment.

Use of urinary alkalisers (citralka) can speed up this process.

Consult your doctor for a proper opinion.

I hope this helps.
