Hi Mickyboy-- My husband just had a urine infection. It’s really awful, but you get better pretty quickly with the medicine. Then about 6 weeks later he got another one. Went through all the medication again. I’ve been telling him for years he doesn’t drink enough water. His doctor told him drinking more water would help prevent urine infections, because it keeps you flushed out. He decided to listen to the doctor. So , first thing of the day he gets a large 6-glass-pitcher and fills it with ice and water, and drinks it throughout the day. No problems since. :slightly_smiling_face:Jeanne

A step in the right direction. Hope you will be feeling better soon.

Regards Sue

Glad your med review went ok. Hope your infection clears quickly @Mickyboy

That was yesterday today feel like crap again legs ache feel wobbly is this what a urin infection does to you hope tablets kick in soon

Did they give you antibiotics for your infection? They usually start working quite quickly. The infection could make you feel rough. You might need to rest up & if infection not getting any better you may need to go back to dr.

Hope you feel better soon xx

Yes got meds still waiting for them to kick in still feeling terrible

Are you feeling any better? Sounds like you may need to visit your GP again. Hope you get better soon x

Stilll got 2 more days to go so have to give them a chance

When my husband had a urinary infection, they told him they had to send the urine to a lab to test the urine for several different kinds of bacteria–as there are different meds for different types of bacteria. Some meds won’t work on some bacteria. He found, and I have found with my urinary infections, that usually during the second day life becomes bearable again, and by the 3rd day we were feeling pretty normal. The doc always said if we didn’t feel better in 2 or 3 days to call as we might need a different med. If yours is not clearing up, you may need a different antibiotic. Jeanne

I will ring Docters Monday urine sample should have results back, really wiped me out never felt so bad everything was so difficult thanks all

Are you diabetic at all? It can be an indicator. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes 8yrs ago after suffering similar and peeing a lot. Type 2 is not necessarily due to poor diet, it’s also hereditary and also comes with age. Don’t suppose doc tested your blood sugar levels or do a blood test to see what your HBA1c levels are?

Could you have had a kidney stone that was passing.? Sometimes it takes days. They usually do an ultra sound to detect one. Jeanne
