What are the signs of a bladder infection???

I know of the hurting when peeing and having to pee all the time but is there any other symptoms? I really am not having the hurting when peeing but just a constant pain down south. It isnt an itching or anything. It does feel like I need to pee. Does anyone know if the over the counter pain meds work? I am in so much pain. AAAHHHHH!!! I had one when I was pregnant with my 16mth old and it took forever and TONS of meds to get rid of it. It was a REALLY bad infection and even put me into labor a week early!

  • When I've had bladder infections, it only really hurts right when I'm done peeing. Sometimes you'll have a fever if a bladder infection is bad enough, and I've even had them to where there was blood in my pee. The constant pain is what makes me think it may not be a bladder infection. Regardless,I think you need to go to the doctor as soon as you can. They can give you pain meds for whatever it is.

  • Similar to yeast infection but worse. A little blood in urine too.

  • You might want to google intersticial cysitis. If it sounds like you, make an appointment with a urologist. The earlier you do something about it, the better. Mine was easily controled with diet and detrol LA, but they need to rule out a bladder infection and a few other things first. .

  • There is a kit available over the counter now that can help you.

  • I forgot, there is a test now. It look and works like a pregnancy test and it tells you if you have a UTI or not.

  • Well when I was out today I got the test strips and the pills and I do have a uti. The strip turned positive almost instantly when the pee went across it! So I am taking the pills and drinking drinking loads of water and juice. Thanks for all the advise mommas!!
