    This sounds like a nerve issue, especially if you have a shooting pain from your buttocks to your foot. Have you seen a neurologist to check your sciatic nerve for inflammation?

    Understand that internal pain, especially intense pain, often confuses the signal read by your brain and appears to come from someplace that isn't actually the source.

    If you are having some kind of sciatic nerve issue, it could trigger a false sensation in your bladder making you have feelings of urgency or burning, and it could also explain the shooting pain when you sit.

    Honestly, the shooting pain is far more concerning than your other symptoms, and your GP or neurologist should check that out first. If the two things are related, dealing with the larger nerve issue will address both.

    In the meantime, you can take something like AZO Standard (an over the counter tablet), which will numb the burning sensation, since your doctor seems to have indicated this is not an infection.
