Please Help Think I have bladder Infection
I was wondering cold any one advise me on these weird symptoms.
I don’t think im pregnant.
Well you see lately im very tired and run down, I can berely even keep my eyes open during work, I have no reason to be run down so I don’t know why im so tired every day.
Im constantly on the loo. I think it might be blader infection, but its funny as im in the toilet every 45 min but there is no pain, like an infection would give.
I had a 4 day period and it was fresh red blood, so it cant be a pregnancy.
Also a slight bit of tenderness of the lower abdoman, more like stiffness so when I stretch I feel the stiffness,
What could it be, I cant see the DR till next year as my medical aid is depleated till then, I have tried drinking citrisoda to clear the infection if it is one but im still needing the toilet very often.

It may be a bladder infection. I can't tell without examining you and testing your urine. You will have to see a doctor to make a diagnosis.
