You know what sucks?

Having a UTI.

UGH!

The Dr. said that I had the highest levels [of whatever it is they test for], and if I would have waited even a day longer, I would have had to be hospitalized because the infection would have spread to my kidneys.
But instead, I'm taking antibiotics for the next week and HOPE that is goes away.

Wish me luck.

Dand girl- didn't you notice something was up right away? I always know because I feel like I have to pee ALL.THE.TIME but can't. It's awful. Side note- I had a nurse tell me if you pee right after sex you rid yourself of most of the bacteria that causes that. Weird, huh? You'll be better buddy! ;) but no sex during this time otherwise it's worse.

and kidney infections are HORRIBLE.

@ aschmalz83 - thanks!!

@ Sara - I'd never had one before, but I was pretty sure I knew what it was. I guess I was just hoping it would go away on it's own...but then it didn't. And yea, I always do that anyways, because if I don't I feel nasty. *sigh*

Oh damn that sucks! Drink cranberry juice too-the kind that is 100% juice, not the cocktail. It will help!

actually cranberry concentrate is the best. Cranberry has a chemical in it that pretty much cures UTI's!

That sucks, hope it goes away quickly. I had one two weeks ago & didnt even know it. If it wasnt for the cloudy pee I wouldnt have ever mentioned to the doc, lol. Feel better soon :)

Like the others said, feel better soon. Antibiotics will help ALOT and drink the cranberry juice or concentrate. Either will help.

Hugs, Erin
