Hello and welcome to HCM.
Thank you for your query.
It appears as though you could be suffering from a urinary tract infection
(UTI). Let me list the symptoms for you so you could refer to them and make an informed decision of visiting the doctor. They are:
-Burning sensation while urinating
-Increased urge to urinate, but less amount of urine passed
-Lower abdominal and/or flank region pain
-Itching around the genitals
-Blood in urine or immediately after (not always seen)
Please note that not all symptoms need to be present to clinically suspect a UTI. Now coming to your other symptoms, a UTI has been long associated with dehydration
, due to the frequent urination and loss of fluid from the body. Symptoms of dehydration can include:
-Altered mental status (eg. confusion, restlessness
and many others.
In my opinion, you should visit a doctor and get your urine examined. This will help your doctor confirm the infection and accordingly initiate a course of antibiotics.
But, what is most important right now is for you to consume plenty of water. You should not get dehydrated, as this is the main and only cause for patients with a UTI getting admitted to a hospital. Please consume plenty of water and cranberry juice (if available) as well.
I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.
