User :   Feeling fatigued and weak for about a week now. I have a UTI but I have been taking AZO and have been able to keep the irritation down in hopes that it would pass. I don't know if the fatigue and weakness are connected to the UTI. Also, I have chronic sinus problems and can't get rid of the headache and pressure. I can't go to a doctor without them all telling me the same thing to just take allergies meds.
