Thanks for posting in HCM.
I understand your concern.
Symptoms you have mentioned seems to be related to urinary tract infection. Kindly do not start antibiotics until you get the following tests done to confirm the diagnosis and know nature of organism as well as which drug the organism is sensitive to.
1. Urine routine examination.
2. Urine culture and sensitivity test.
Accordingly, you can consult Physician/Urologist to take a proper course of appropriate antibiotics.
Until then, you can continue to consume good quantities of water/fluids and citrus fruit juices to keep your alkaline more alkaline.
Hope the information provided would be helpful.
All the best.
