Remaining pain after UTI - Urethra trauma?

Hi everyone,
    I have been having trouble urinating (it's difficult to start and very painful at times) for the past two months. This began after I contracted a UTI from having intercourse with a full bladder. My UTI has cleared up but I still have difficulty urinating, painful urethral spasms and lower abdominal pain. I have been tested for STDS (none) and treated for PID (although I had no STDS). I have also had an ultrasound to check for possible kidney stones, all clear. My urine cultures all seem to be coming back clear as well. My symptoms subsided slightly while I was on antibiotics for the suspected PID (doxycycline and metronidazole). Sex is nearly impossible and I am so lost now! I don't know what to do anymore - I feel slightly crazy, like maybe I am imagining the pain. The pain is debilitating and I just want to feel like myself again! Is it possible this is all caused by injury to my urethra during sex?
Thanks a million in advance for all your help!
