Brief Answer:
Please see the detailed answer below.

Detailed Answer:
Hello! I have been through your question.

Regarding your concern, I think this may be an urinary tract infection or cystitis.

Usually cystitis symptoms include a strong, persistent urge to urinate, a burning sensation when urinating, passing frequent, small amounts of urine and low-grade fever, a feeling of pressure in the lower abdomen ( as you have).

Furthermore, I'd suggest to meet a physician, to do a physical examination, urine routine microscopy and culture ensitivity, abdominal ultrasound (to see the kidney,ureter and bladder specifically) and to start antibiotic as soon as possible(usually, in my patients, I'd prescribe Bactrim or Ciprofloxacin if not allergic).

During this time you should drink a lot of water ( to flush out the toxins from the bladder) and Paracetamol for fever.

I hope my answer helps you. Feel free to ask further.
I wish you a quick recovery.

Regards

My 13 year old daughter has complained of twisty upset stomach for 3 days now. She had a low-grade fever, but it is gone. Today she s still complaining of an upset stomach, not menstrual cramps . No vomiting , no diarrhea . She says it s not stress or anxiety , but she doesn t feel well enough to go to school. Could she have a bug or strep? In the past she had these symptoms and no sore throat, but turned out she had strep. I m debating whether to take her to the doctor because if it s viral, the doctor can t give her anything anyway, but then again, it could be strep. I think she really doesn t feel well, but my husband thinks she s faking. She said the pain was 7 on a scale of 1-10, today 6.

Hi. For about 3 months Ive had phlegm production that is yellow on color. I had a cough for a few weeks, which has gone away now. I get nauseous after eating, with the feeling of pressure on my stomach . I get very light headed if I hold my breath for a few seconds, and I feel all the blood rushing back to my head when I let go of the breath. I have a low-grade fever. Also it takes more energy than normal to breath in deeply. Not sure what is going on. Can you help?
