I think I may have a UTI. I haven't been able to sleep at all tonight (it's about 6.30am now), and then about an hour ago all of a sudden my bladder is throbbing. I've been sat on the loo trying to force myself to pee but I can just about manage a trickle. No pain on passing urine though, just the constant pressure. I've had cystitis before, years ago, but I don't remember it being as nagging as this (as in, stopping me from sleeping). I haven't been doing anything out of the ordinary, other than drinking a lot of pineapple juice, but I guess these things often just happen.

I can try to get a uni doctor appointment in the next few days, but apart from drinking lots of water, stealing my flatmate's cranberry juice, and possibly investing in some cranberry capsules, is there anything I can do? I'm allergic to antibiotics anyway so I'm not sure if my doc will be able to help much as it is. I was meant to be going on a date with my boyfriend later tonight but right now I don't even want to leave the safety of my ensuite bedroom for my seminars.

*ETA* Just checked online and I officially can't get a doctor's appointment 'til next Tuesday. Fabulous.
Managed to get an emergency appointment at 11, just as I started to notice blood in my urine. I've been put on Trimethoprim 200mg, which doesn't have brilliant reviews, but fingers crossed.
Thanks to everyone for their kind advice x
