Possible kidney stones or bladder infection? Really bad pain

Customer Question

Possible kidney stones or bladder infection? Really bad pain when urinating, little blood in urine. Bad pelvic pains for about a week now and haven't been feeling the best over all for the past few days. I'm running to the bathroom every 5 minutes and have zero control of my bladder. Should I go to ER tonight or try to wait until the morning?
