Burning after piss?

Another possibility other than UTI could be a urethral stricture. It's a narrowing of the urethra, normally happens in older folk but can happen at any age. Since the urethra is narrowed, you can get a bit of a burning sensation and what feels like retention of urine, not feeling like you've completed urination. Does it feel like the flow of urine is particularly reduced, or does it take a while to get started?

The real test for this would be a cytoscopy, relatively simple, although I'm not sure how easy/expensive this would be depending on where in the world you are. If you see a Dr and they don't consider this, I'd recommend asking about it and they may consider sending you to a urologist. UTIs are typically self limiting meaning they'll go away on their own. And if they don't, they get worse to the point where you KNOW you have a UTI.
