Do you think? - June 30th 2012, 10:21 PM

Lately I've been having horrible pain in bladder after I pee and every time I'm peeing.

My vagina burns and itches like fucking hell!

My mom said its a bladder infection because I'm not drinking enough. I'm scared of peeing now because I'm scared of the pain and I go the doctors in 2 weeks!

I'm drinking cranberry juice but that can only bring some relief until I can get antibiotics for this.

But should I go to the doctors right away with this? Should I go to an walk in clinic? I might ask my mom to take me if I still have pain by Monday to a walk in clinic.

We're not professionals, so we can't formally diagnose you. It sounds like you might have a yeast infection or vaginitis, but I think you should try and go to a walk in clinic as soon you can or are able to go.

I know you guys aren't professionals. I didn't write it in that way. I'm sorry.

I don't think it is a yeast infection because I'm not inflamed and it only itches for a few minutes then stop. I don't think yeast infections have trouble urinating too.

My mom is taking me tomorrow to a walk in clinic for antibiotics.

Yeast infections are very similar to bladder infections. However, usually a yeast infection is accompanied with white cottage-cheese-like substance and a fish smell.

It does sound like you might have a bladder infection, which can be caused due to lack of hygiene/not proper washing, wiping back to front (women), if having sexual intercourse - old condoms (sometimes not even past expiration date), etc.

There are several ways, and sometimes you do everything possible to prevent one, and it still happens!

Anyways, I would schedule with a doctor ASAP, but unless you can afford a walk-in clinic, then wait to see your GP (General practice doctor/family doctor). Usually they don't suddenly turn severe.

For example, I was a bit swollen for almost a week, but no other symptoms. The following week, I was a bit feverish. Two days later, I was seeing a bit of blood on the toilet paper, but thought it might be my period coming in. Another week, and I was pale, fatigued, high fever, and passing out. Turns out I had a bladder infection the whole time, but with very few symptoms! By time we realized what was happening, I was being rushed to the hospital and had a kidney infection.

So, they CAN turn severe, but it takes awhile generally. If you would rather see your family doctor, make an appointment for this week, otherwise a walk-in clinic if you would need to wait over a week.

Drink plenty of water and keep drinking the cranberry juice. Avoid caffeine.
Hope you feel better soon!

I'm quite surprised that my bladder pain had stopped and I have no fishy smell or cottage cheese discharge. The walk in clinic I go to has an in-lab and in only 20 minutes they have my results back. I went there before and I had a UTI. But my first time with bladder pain and I'm bit worried, I don't care if I don't have the pain tomorrow I much rather have an urine test done and get my results back.

Then sit here a least like another 2 weeks before I see my GP for a physical.
