  • I don't think eating a lot is a symptom of a UTI. I think, unless there are some real pregnancy symptoms (missed period, late period, breast tenderness, etc.), but there are UTI symptoms, I'd go with UTI. Of course, you could just take a pregnancy test or see your doc to be diagnosed for a suspected UTI, and that should solve it, either way.

  • Only if someone has no clue about what a UTI feels like but, I doubt it. Usually the painful peeing is a dead giveaway. Plus, I've never known a UTI to cause a person to eat more.

  • Stomach pains and eating a lot are not symptoms of a UTI.

  • maybe the stomach pains are associated with eating a lot.
    And maybe you are eating a lot due to stress or another factor

  • No. Pregnancy doesn't make you feel like you're pissing battery acid

  • Mrs_Prissy - I tried to quit using it! But...well...I'm addicted! I just can't stop. I need it...I need it so badly. I suppose I should go to rehab. See, there I go again!
