Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for her symptoms.
Her symptoms can be due to an infection in the urinary tract.
The other probable cause may be stone lodged in the bladder or urethra.
Urine may appear normal.
However, chill & fever indicate infection as the likely cause.
If the symptoms continue, I would advise to consult doctor to have an examination.
An urine analysis for routine and culture sensitivity can be needed.
Antibiotics will be required in case of infection.
Please tell her to take plenty of fluid.
Taking plenty of water is good for urinary tract infection or stone
Cranberry juice can be taken.
She can take Motrin or Advil for pain.
I hope this information will be helpful.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
