Hello,

These symptoms can be caused by:

1. acute cystitis & pyelonephritis-- bacterial infection of the bladder & kidneys can cause these symptoms.

2. Acute appendicitis---inflammation of appendix can irritate the abdominal cavity & the bladder resulting in these symptoms.

3. Pelvic inflammatory disease--this is another possibility, but only after above 2 possibilities ruled out.

4. Acute colitis---diarrhea should also accompany.

Hence, you should see your doctor soon for clinical evaluation & a CT scan of the abdomen with contrast to rule out above conditions.

Antibiotics will be required to treat the infections.

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.
