You must be very frustrated!
Regarding the urinary symptoms - you have to have your urine tested and maybe sent to the lab to see if you have bacteria in the urine. If it happens more than 3 times a year, this is an indication to see an urologist and have a scope under anaestetic to see if there are any growths or problems inside the bladder.
The cramps could be due to low calcium or overexertion of the muscles but in association with the buttock pain may be due to a nerve root irritation in your lower back. Try taking Calcium supplements and if that does not help, ask your doctor to try Quinine (the malaria medication). Stretching the muscle and applying heat may help.
The pain in the buttock sounds very suspicious of a nerve root or nerve irritation - a physiotherapist will be able to evaluate this for you and see if this is indeed the case. She will be able to advise you if it is necessary to see an orthopod or have x/rays of the back. If they can't find the cause ask them to try Trepilene which is an antidepressant but also reduces chronic pain from nerve origin.
