For the past two years, I ve been getting what I thought were urinary tract infections. While being treated for that, my symptoms would be better, but not gone all the way. The symptoms I m referring to is the following: When I have to urinate, my left side hurts by the top half of my ribs. The pain goes into my chest. When my side hurts, that s how I know I have to urinate. Sometime the urination has a bad smell. I don t feel the tinkling in my stomach anymore when I need to urinate, only an uncomfortable feeling in my side, and chest. My doctor passed away in August, and I now have no insurance. Please help!
