  • Is there an urgent care center or a minute clinic in a CVS or something? You need treatment. Call the doc's office back and explain the situation. Maybe you can bring in a urine sample and not even see the doc. Good luck!

  • along with the urgent care, i would recommend drinking plenty of cranberry juice (100%) as well as taking cranberry tablets... like, a LOT of cranberry juice. it'll make you pee a lot more, but it also clears out the acidic junk.

  • that sounds more like a kidney infection than a UTI... ive had it and it sounds exactly as what you are describing. go to urgent care theyll give you something for it, or if you dont have insurance or would rather not go then go buy "ClearTract" its 10x's more potent than cranberry juice and is tastless you just mix it with a glass of water... drink lots of water and pee anytime you feel like you need to even if barely anything comes out.
    FYI the prescription they give you for a kidney infection will cause a yeast infection... SUCKS bad! then they have to give you one tiny little pill for the yeast infection. i hated it!!
