Customer Question

I have been sick with bladder infection and have been feeling tightness and symptoms of severe dehydration with weakness, nausea, fever, chills, headache, muscle weakness. I also have a severe episode of coccydypinia (?) making it extremely painful to try to move. The dry mouth is really bad, nearly choking me. I have only been able to sleep about an hour at a time for the past 48 hours. Help, please!

Hi,
As such you should undergo a urine culture and sensitivity test for further evaluation.
Depending upon the report of culture and sensitivity test exact antibiotic can be prescribed to treat the bladder infection you describe.
In the mean time you can take Oral rehydration solution to treat the dehydration symptoms you describe.
Take small amount of fluid at regular interval to prevent dryness of mouth.
Also you should check your blood sugar levels to rule out hyperglycemia.Recurrent bladder infections are common in patients with hyperglycemia.
Try to use a sponge while sitting to prevent pain from coccydynia.
Take proper rest.
Oral NSAIDs can be prescribed.
Heating pads can be used for pain management.
I hope this helps
