When you pee, it is normal to feel a slight burning sensation or tingling. This happens because your urethra is the tube that carries urine from your bladder to outside of your body. When you pee, it comes out in a spray and not just a stream. This means that there are lots of little drops of urine coming out at once which makes it more likely for you to feel that sting when you pee.
The reason why it can tingle when you pee is because there are many nerve endings in the urethra, which is why it feels like someone is pinching or pricking when you go to the bathroom. The nerve endings sense any irritation or pain and send signals to your brain so that you know something is wrong and needs attention. The feeling can also be caused by stress, anxiety, or even lack of sleep.
The best way to stop this from happening is by drinking lots of water throughout the day and staying hydrated so that your body does not dehydrate as easily. If this continues to happen after drinking plenty of water then see your doctor about getting tested for other infections such as UTIs (urinary tract infections) or STDs (sexually transmitted diseases).
