It is eleven at night and I am sitting on the toilet and have been for the past two hours because it is the only thing that is comforting. I have horrible bladder and urethra pain and a lot of blood in my urine and I keep peeing. I am so miserable. I have consumed a lot of water today to help but it hasn't. Dh told me to go to the hospital but I feel kinda dumb for going for a suspected urinary tract infection. I'm just so miserable idk what to do. I took something for the pain but it didn't help.

Update..I went to the ER. When I gave the nurse my urine sample she said "it looks like you were right to come in" they said I have a severe UTI and had me take an antibiotic while I was there and wrote me a prescription for more. The doctor said if I have any back pain I need to come back in right away because the infection is particularly bad. I'm also passing tiny clots of blood too so he was a little concerned about obstruction of the urethra as well but..yeah so I guess good thing I went in. Thank you guys for the replies. I appreciate it.

Is there an urgent care open? If not Id try to hold off till tomorrow. A bad uti isn't al really a life or death thing.

Peeing blood for 2 hours is an emergency to me.

I would go to the ER. If it's a kidney stone you would be sent there anyway.

Fever? Chills? Back pain? If yes, go. If not, try to wait till morning. Ouch either way.
