Submitted an earlier comment on this but looks like it didn’t go through.
Basically a needle-like stinging pain near the tip. Pain come and goes and is worse randomly. Consistently worse when consuming alcohol.
Have you had a cystoscopy performed? They can suck but are really necessary to correctly diagnose. I wouldn’t waste your time with any other appointments unless they are going to be doing this procedure. Also make sure when they do the cystoscopy, they don’t try to bypass any stricture with the scope to enter your bladder. My first scoping they tried that and it was not fun. Second scoping was a breeze.
