Hi.

Thanks for the question.

It sounds like you have a urinary track infection.

You might have a vaginal infection as well.

See your doctor today. If you can not, go to urgent care.

You might need an antibiotic.

OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. Also, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent (5)—that’s how we are paid, per rating]. If you forgot something, just use reply and come back. I am here http://www.justanswer.com/medical/expert-dr-thomas/

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.
