Thank you for your question.I would strongly recommend that you be seen ASAP for this.The reason why I say this is because your symptoms indicate that you could be having a urine infection that may have spread or become more severe.I would recommend that you should have a urine test along with an ultrasound or a CAT scan of the abdomen to have a look at the kidneys and the urinary tract to confirm the diagnosis and to see if the infection has spread to the kidneys or not.This session is open for any further questions that you may have.
