It sounds like you have a urinary tract infection. You will need some antibiotics. Call your doctor's office or go to a clinic so they can run a urine sample to check for bacteria. Once the urine specimen is through and they have diagnosed you with the urinary tract infection, take acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil) for pain. (There are over the counter meds from AZO that have medicine in them to numb your bladder but it will cause your urine to be bright orange in nature. YOu may not want to try that until you notice no more blood in your urine. ) I would also have them look at your throat as well while you are there just to be sure it is not something that needs more attention.Be sure to drink plenty of water and avoid soda pop. If you include cranberry juice in your diet, that would be a good thing also. They do make some light or sugar substitute versions.
Keep an eye on your blood sugars. Your blood sugar could go up a little due to this infection.Be sure to mention your diabetes when you go to the doctor or clinic for the urine test.
If you tend to get yeast infections from antibiotics, ask the doctor for diflucan which is a pill to help prevent and treat yeast infections.
