Bladder pain?

Posted by on Nov. 30, 2012 at 8:48 AM

I hope I don't have a bladder infection.  I have bladder pain and feel like I can't finish peeing.  I am going to get some cranberry juice and maybe some cranberry pills.  Any other advice?  I'm going to make an appt at my gyno for next week if it's not better then.  I have my period right now and really dont want to go in yet, though the pain is worse today than yesterday.

Period or not, I would probably go in today if I were you.   You should just have to pee in a cup, and UTI's can spread pretty quickly.  Aside from the cranberry stuff, make sure you drink plenty of water.   I hope you feel better soon.

Lots and lots of water.

Also, you may find a lukewarm bath with plain epsom salts gives you relief, too...

Thanks.  The pain got worse so I finally went in.  I have a UTI.  Got some antibiotics.

My first thought is bladder infection.  Depending on your doctor, you might be able to call them and have them get you a prescription for antibiotics.  Cranberry juice (make sure it's pure- no added sugars) can help alleviate symptoms, but definitely won't clear up an infection.  Blueberry juice can help as well.  You can take an anti-inflammatory (like ibuprofen AKA Motrin or naproxen sodium, AKA Aleve) to alleviate the pain some.

You could have a urinary tract infection, or kidney infection; I'd see my doctoe, IMO.

Garlic pills are suppose to be natures antibiotics.
