Brief Answer:
This may be due to Urinary tract infection or could be due to inadequate intake of water..

Detailed Answer:
Hi, Welcome to HCM,

This may be due to Urinary tract infection or could be due to inadequate intake of water. If you do not have contradictions to take plenty of water (like any kind of kidney or other medical problems), firstly I suggest you to have plenty of water(3-4 Ltr per day).

Secondly please get a Unrinalysis test done, to rule out Urinary tract infection.

Thanks

I will start water intake as recommended, but am travelling for 5 days from tomorrow and cant do the tests until I return.
Is there any over the counter medication that I can start taking to avoid making the situation worse in case of infection.
