What Does a UTI or Bladder Infection Feel Like?

Off and on lately I've been having sharp, burning pains that feel like I have to pee. I feel totally fine when I do go and a lot of times there isn't much there. I don't know if I have an infection of some sort or if my bladder has just been kicked one too many times and now its starting to hurt?
I asked about this last week at my appointment but they seemed to think that because it doesn't hurt when I pee, I don't really have a problem. The pain is getting stronger when it happens and its really starting to bother me. Does it sound like this is an infection? I've never had one so I have nothing to compare it to.

I should probably also add that I have had kidney stones in the past and since then I've been a little paranoid about all things related to peeing because it was a horribly painful experience that I don't care to repeat. I can accept it if I'm just getting kicked but this is really starting to hurt.

Re: What Does a UTI or Bladder Infection Feel Like?

I've had UTIs before, many times. Usually they wake me in the middle of the night with an urge to pee. On the first day of it, I could sit on the toilet all day and dribble. It's just a constant feeling of having to go. It also burns when I do matter how little. I can't say for sure that you have one, but it's a simple urine test. I can't believe your dr didn't suggest it. The last time I had one was on a Saturday morning and I took an over the counter product to ease the pain until my dr could see me (before I was prego) and then I paid for a doctor's visit for nothing. That medicine makes your pee look like Orange Soda and it messed up the results of the urine she just wrote me a prescription. I know what it is and I wish I could convince her to just call in a prescription but she always wants an office visit. I've gotten them since college.....hoping I don't get one while prego.....trying to drink plenty of water. Good luck to you, and again I'd just ask for the test to be sure.

Re: What Does a UTI or Bladder Infection Feel Like?

After having a few pains that took my breath away I called my doctor. They told me to come in and have it checked out. The initial test they did in the office looked ok but they still sent it to the lab to be sure.
I met with my doctor and she checked me out. She said that the baby is sitting very low so its possible that he is laying on it and hitting it every so often for good measure.

Thanks for your replies. I'm glad I went in for some peace of mind.
