Hi ,

Thank you for your query.

Your symptoms relate more towards a taking acetaminophen for fever. Drink plenty of water. You might also require urine alkalysing solutions such as Alkasol.

To check for prostate condition, it is necessary to go for an ultrasonography of the pelvic region.
That would help in diagnosing if there is any enlargement or not.

If the symptoms are not getting better, urine study has to be done and an antibiotic might be required.
For a proper evaluation and diagnosis, do visit your family physician.

If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query. Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Have a nice day.

Hi,

Symptoms secondary to any infection overlap with each other. Therefore I request you to get the tests done at a certified laboratory investigations centre to confirm/rule out possible infections.

In the mean while follow the instructions mentioned earlier.

I hope you have a speedy recovery. I will be available to guide you should you need any other assistance.

Today is 4th day I wake up with 100F. Went to pee very very slow almost no pressure:( I think it's time to go to hospital. It's possible in some cases if you got flue you could pee the same way?

Hi,

Flu doesn't cause problems like this. I think it is wise to see an urologist. You might have a urinary or a prostate problem.

In the mean while drink plenty of fluids and keep yourself well hydrated.

Good luck!!

Have had what feels like a bladder infection. My Dr. tested for infection,and there is none, so will not give me antibiotic. This has been happening to me at least once a year for 20 years. Taking o/c azo, which is like pyridium, not as strong. Waiting to see a urologist, appointment in 2 weeks. Now I have developed leg cramps when I try to sleep. Is this from the o/c meds, or is it low potassium?
