Suggest Treatment For Burning Urination And Back Pain

Hello! I fear that I have an urinary tract infection. I have never had it before but about two weeks ago it started to burn while peeing. I was kind of hoping it to go away since on some days it has burned less and some days more. I also have a hard pressure down there and the need to pee constantly. Today the symptoms have been really bad. It has burned like hell and I have sharp pain just underneath my ribs, more on the right side. My middle back is also quite sore. I've been reading about UTI online and how it can lead to nephritis and I am scared to death at the moment. Am I going to be okay waiting until the morning (another 8 hours here in the UK) before I go to the doctor??? Thank you so much for your reply! -Johanna

Hello,

I would like to know a few more details, did you have any fever in the past few days. If not there is no reason for you to worry till you meet your doctor. Your symptoms can however make you feel very uncomfortable.

Nephritis usually occurs in diabetics or people with some abnormalities in their urinary tract. Though there is no need to worry as of now, it is better you visit your doctor at the earliest.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Karthik Rajan
