  • if it hurts when you pee and you feel pain in the bladder area it could be a uti. Drink some cranberry juice or eat a bunch of fresh blueberries (has the same chemical as cranberries), or take some concentrated cranberry pills (stronger and more effective than the juice). You can also buy uti test strips over the counter and they are accurate. Schedule a dr. appointment for monday. You dont want to ignore these symptoms! drink a lot of water too!

  • butterfly blue has a point. if you are feeling flu-like symptoms as well it could be pretty serious. Ignored uti symptoms could lead to a kidney infection.

  • Yes,if its progressed to feeling flu-y,you need to be treated soon. Does your back hurt or do you feel nauseated?

  • Either way, you should go to the doctor. You can help the symptoms in the meantime with cranberry juice or supplements (and be sure to drink lots of water). But it won't go away until you get antibiotics to kill the infection, wherever it is.

  • if it burns when you pee its a urinary track infection and if you have urgency to go and feel like youre going to explode and then you go to the bathroom and only a tinkle comes out thats bladder infection. drink lots of cranberry juice but MAKE sure its 100% juice cause if you get cocktail or the fake kind its mainly sugar and it will be worse
