UTI or Pregnancy?

I keep getting sharp pains in my lower stomach, I feel tired and a little feverish. I feel "warm"... like a lingering hot flash. My urine is dark, and burns when I pee. I feel slight nauseau, but im not gagging over smells *like dinner that i didnt put away last night.. lol* I should start my period somewhere around the 16th, so Im not sure if any of this is pregnancy symptoms or if they are symptoms of the UTI im pretty sure I have. The part that is worrying me is the cramping and twinges I keep feeling. I dont know if that is part of a UTI or not. I get recurrent UTI, but this one is worse than the others, so maybe thats why?? I know its too early to take a test, otherwise I would. Im going to see my Dr. tommorow. Just wanted some input... thanks.

  • Your bladder could be having spasms, many people have that when they have a UTI, they just don't always feel it. Your symptoms sound like UTI symptoms to me, if you compare them to pregnancy symptoms. Good Luck...hope this helps.

  • Wow! I was just going to say what the first poster said!
    but it could be 1 of three things..

    1-REALLY REALLY REALLY bad yeast infection that doesnt itch (i used to get yeast infections but they didnt itch, just burned)

    2-terrible UTI (or u could have something wrong with your bladder

    3-An STD, and if its that ask your man wth he's doing lol

  • so the tiredness and cramping could go along with a UTI? Out of all the answers given, im pretty sure its a Uti or possibly bladder infection if anything-I dont drink water-just coke and coffee so that would be the cause....ive just never really felt so feverish and tired and crampy from a normal UTI... so maybe its moved into my bladder?

  • yeah, I was told that caffeine and sugar make the symptoms worse. you should go to the ER if you have a fever with it.
