Am i cured of UTI?

I m a male. 33 yrs.
Does it happen that UTI is cured but the symptoms persist. A month and a half ago, i was treated for std bacteria(had unprotected sex). Got cured for 2 weeks and it started again. Got tested again and the reports came negative. Doc gave some meds( cystone, some pain killer) and said antibiotics not required since tests were negative. Its been 2 weeks now without any pain, but once in a while i feel burning only after peeing in the mornings.
Was getting better...then last nite i drank Redbull. Today morning felt the sting after peeing. The burning was there from few hours and them i m fine now.

Why am i still getting this.
Am i not cured since the reports are all normal.
It's 2 months now from the first diagnose.
Does uti get cured, but syptoms persist?
Does it mean i can never have redbull or bear again?
How long does it take for me to get cured?

Please help..

Recurrent urine infections could be due to various reasons. Most common causes are stones in kidney, changing sexual partners frequently, pregnancy, diabetes and childhood infections. The urine can also be due to retention of urine anywhere in its flow due to obstruction. Consumption of energy drinks increases caffeine content which acts as a diuretic and there is increased urination. A high sugar content of these energy drinks increases your urinary frequency.  In your case it may be possible that your infection is persisting though urine tests may be normal in few cases. Management of UTI is usually with antibiotic treatment. Discuss the possibilities with a urologist. Take care and do keep us posted.
