Stelara- urinary side effects?

I started Stelara for the second time on January 21, 2021. (I was on Stelara a couple years ago also)

A few days after my initial infusion (this time being on it), I noticed a discomfort while urinating. I tested negative for a UTI. I’m wondering if it could be caused by the Stelara. My GI doc doesn’t think it is,but it’s strong stuff, and I did react to it during the initial Stelara infusion (hives). The discomfort seems to be getting worse, not better.

anyone have similar? I’m wondering if my body is reacting to it as it’s leaving.
