Hi. We can continue after this but you need to be evaluated at an A&E right away

You may just have a bladder infection but you may have a more serious kidney infection and you may even have appendicitis with all that pain so you need an exam, a urinalysis, blood work, and a ct scan of the abdomen

Let me know if you need more information please

hi thank you for getting back in touch. I have already had my appendix removed. Is is nessery to go to a&e I only really like going if it is a emergency. I mean I am in a lot of pain but could it be serious I'm just scared.

I understand Leanne. You could instead go to a walk-in clinic. It may just be a bladder infection and you can try taking some cranberry pills and a probiotic like lactobacillus but unless the pain resolves soon you need antibiotics

Let me know how it goes and please remember to rate my service to you
