I've been having some UTI-like symptoms and am unsure what is going on. I'm a male in my early 20s. My main symptoms have been frequent urges to urinate and discomfort in the bladder area. I first started having symptoms about a month ago. I went in to a pharmaceutical clinic for UTI testing and received antibiotics for five days. The treatment didn't work, so I went into my primary physician and got a different type of antibiotic. However, I tested negative for a UTI at the physician despite still experiencing symptoms. The second type of antibiotics had the symptoms disappear about two days in and afterwards I felt fine. However, I have had symptoms resurge a few days ago. This leads me to thinking something else is going on. What I find suspicious is that the day before my symptoms returned, I had drank some whiskey. I recall doing the same thing before my original symptoms appeared. I'm wondering if my body is having some reaction to alcohol and if I even have a UTI. The fact that I'm male and not sexually active makes it seem highly unlikely for me to get a UTI. Is it normal for these symptoms to occur after drinking alcohol? I did drink enough to get drunk both times, so maybe the amount I consumed was too much for my body to handle. The cap on the bottle is broken, so that might also be a factor.
