Who has ever had a UTI and what were your symptoms?

I have had bladder infections when it hurts and burns to pee but those aren't my symptoms. I have cramps and back pain and a foul smelling discharge....ewwww! I have no insurance so I always try to do home remedies and OTC meds. I took the 12 AZO tablets within 48 hrs and nothing! Any suggestions?

  • maybe kidney stones??? Went today for mine and the dr asked if I had back pain and such. I guess if you think it was a UTI and suddenly getting back pain and cramps it's kidney stones. Of course there are more symptoms (blood in urine) and such... I hope you feel better!!!!

  • Go get some cranberry pills. They are cheap and if you take them and drink plenty of water it will do great. I also get pain in my back when I have one. They suck!

  • Does a yeaast infection cause back pain and a stinky discharge? I thought yeast infections were all about the itching? Oh and based on my symptoms don't you think it is too far gone for cranberry pills or juice to kill it?

  • Yeast infections do cause stinky discharge but you should be itchy down there and it would burn normally with them also. But you should be able to drink LOTS of cranberry juice and pills with LOTS of water for a week and it will help.
