Posted By: Kelli Bullard - 2/21/2020 4:09:17 PM


Shelly Caraway, assistant director of nursing at Bivins Pointe, explains the symptoms of a urinary tract infection.

If you suspect you have a UTI, there are several different signs you can watch for: burning during urination; frequency of urination; pain in the lower back, pelvic area, or genitals.  If you take a Tylenol but the pain doesn’t go away, you might have a UTI. If you have a fever of unknown origin, you’re freezing and just not feeling good, you might have a UTI. UTI symptoms can also come in the form of nausea and vomiting. 

Now this is advice for people that are caring for somebody, or maybe it’s you that has a UTI.  If you or someone you care for has symptoms of a UTI, please make a doctor’s appointment and drink plenty of water.
