Hello
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have urgency for urination since yesterday .This could be mostly due to UTI

I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem.
1) Do you have burning urination ?

Get your routine urine test and urine culture done to find out the organisms causing this infection and antibiotics to which they are sensitive to.

Take broad spectrum antibiotics like Cefixime along with urinary antiseptic like
Nitrofurantoin twice daily and urine alkaliser thrice daily.Later on switch on to appropriate antibiotics as per culture report.

Get the prescription of medicines from your family Physician.

Ensure to drink more water.To keep your urine dilute This will help to control dysuria.
