  • maybe an urgent care if you have one, but I wouldn't call it a medical emergency

  • did you just have sex? that could cause you to have a uti. and that could also be the reason why you are bleeding. If it turns into massive amounts of blood then maybe i would go. If you are in that much pain, i would go.

  • I've always gone to the ER because the pain is too much for me to handle.

  • You may have a kidney stone, that is how mine was, it got to where I was peeing out blood, if I hadn't went to the E.R then it would have ruptured my oh I don't recall the tube they said but it was stuck in the tube that is in between the kidney and bladder and every time I peed then it would cut, it would have eventually rupurted my tube, yikes!!

  • This isn't really a reason to go to the ER. Going to the ER for things like this is what makes ERs so busy. Try drinking plenty of water and tough it out until tomorrow.

  • If it burns to pee wait til the morning...if you are having pain in your lower back...go to the ER. The lower back indicates kidney infection ... which is what a UTI can turn into and that can be very serious. Good Luck!

  • go see a doctor and get some antibiotics, but it isn't an emergency room situation.

  • Drink lots of water (like a glass an hour); take cranberry capsules; no caffeine, alcohol, spicy or acidic foods.
