Bladder Infection, Cystitis, Urinary Tract Infection, UTI

Brief Description of the Condition:

This is a bacterial infection of the bladder, kidney and/or urethra. Inflammation of these areas may
occur. This condition is more common in women because of the more direct path from the anus to
the urethra. It may be a chronic condition in some people. Bacteria can transfer more easily from
the anus to the vagina and eventually into the bladder to cause infection. Bacteria can also
transfer from the bloodstream from another infection. Symptoms include blood in the urine,
burning sensation when urinating, fever, frequent urination, incontinence, pain in the abdomen or
lower back, and cloudy, strong smelling urine.

You donot have to have all the textbook symptoms. Your symptoms resemble the symptoms of a bladder infection. If I were you I would call the dr ASAP and make an appointment.
