so, I think I may have a UTI. I started feeling ~uncomfortable~ down there maybe a week ago but disregarded it as I have been extremely busy with school and work.
THEN I became quite sick with diarrhea, a fever, headache, etc. and UTI symptoms that I've heard of like pain and the need to pee became apparent.
after doing some interned research, I have some questions.
First, are diarrhea, fever, chills, and the like normal symptoms of urinary tract infections? Is this just a random flu that happened to come about at the same time? Or does this signify that my infection is bad and should be taken care of ASAP?
Second, I've read that you need to deal with UTIs promptly. Should I be going to the emergency room/an after hours clinic this weekend, or can I let it wait til Monday when I can make an appointment at my university's health centre?
any input would be great, thanks!
