UTIs suck. They really, really do. I'd started chugging water and taking cranberry pills and drinking cranberry juice and alka-seltzer when I felt it coming on...and the symptoms went away. All of them. So, I thought the problem had gone away. I kept taking the cranberry pills, and chugging the water, but quit with the rest because it was starting to bother my stomach.
The symptoms came roaring, as of this morning, only worse. This time, it includes nausea, mid-back pain, and a low-grade fever.
Got a doctor's appointment for tomorrow morning. I'll feel better next week.
