Brief Answer:

Urinary tract infection suspected

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

I think that your symptoms are related to a urinary tract infection.

You should do some examinations to confirm this diagnose :

-a urinalysis

-a blood test

-a urine culture due to the fact that this situation is repeated

Meanwhile, I suggest you to:

-Take control over your diabetes

-Drink water, also cranberry juice can help.

-Avoid coffee, alcohol

-Take painkillers for the pain such as Ibuprofen

Eventually, you should take prescripted antibiotics if this diagnose is confirmed by the examinations.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
