  • Bladder infection?

    Hey everyone,

    I've recently noticed, and my family and friends, that I have to go to the bathroom way too often than normal. I'll go 6 times in a day maybe. Also, a few days before my period, during the evening, my stomach would get extremely bloated... so bloated I couldn't eat or even stand up straight.. also I'd always be pooping minutes after every meal I'd eat... I also had insanely bad shivers when I'd feel bloated at night. I currently have my period so I cannot tell if the pains in my stomach are from my period or from my bladder... but not only is my stomach below my belly button hurting but it also feels like something is putting pressure on my bladder all the time.
    Help! =/

  • I have had two bladder infections, both of which caused me to feel badly enough that i finally went to the doctor. I was very lethargic, felt like I had a low grade fever, had lots of lower back pain, felt very bloated, urinated or felt need to urinate frequently and experienced a very odd sensation when I'd urinate.

    With what you're saying, I can't tell whether this is a issue of just being very bloated. The shivers make me think you've been running a fever.

    I would highly suggest a doctors visit for a simple urinalysis which will within minutes let you know if there are white blood cells, blood, or protein in your urine all three of which point to a bladder infection or some sort of UTI.

    Hope you feel better soon.
