Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Welcome back to JA.
I agree with you the symptoms you express may be related to UTI from the self catheterization, however, my advice would be that you AVOID to rely prescription written without a physician examination and a urine culture.
This is important because you are having symptoms (pain going as high as under the rib and feeling unwell) that suggest the bacteria may have gone retrograde up t the kidneys.
Therefore to give you the best standard of care that you deserve, I will advice that you start taking a urinary disinfectant like Bicitate or Mist Pot citrate which you can get OTC and try to se a doctor. If you are uncomfortable with your GP you can go to an Emergency room and the Triage nurse will surely get a physician attend to you. Also remember to keep up your water intake
Thanks for making it JA
