Thanks for posting your query.
One of the important possibilities to be ruled out in your case is of interstitial cystitis which may be associated with urinary urgency, urinary frequency, waking at night to urinate (nocturia), and sterile urine cultures.

Symptoms include painful urination, nocturia (waking at night to urinate), urinary hesitancy and discomfort and difficulty driving, travelling or working.

To confirm the diagnosis you need to get a dipstick urinalysis, various urine cultures, flowmetry and post-void residual urine volume by ultrasound scanning and cystoscopy.

Hope that this information helps and hope that you will get better soon.

Wishing you good health.
