Were you diagnosed with stones when you were investigated last time around?

Please let me know.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I’m not too sure about stones. They said it was an infection due to not drinking enough water

Did you have an ultrasound or a CT scan done?

Please let me know.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
That was over a year ago
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, I didn’t

Considering your symptoms, you MUST have an ultrasound of your kidneys and your urinary tract.

You have already had one infection and you could develop another and we need to find out if there are any stones in your urinary tract or in your kidneys that could be the cause of you having this pain and may have caused your infection in the past as well.

I would recommend calling your GP, as GPs do take phone consults I believe even in UK and get a referral for an ultrasound or preferably a CT scan of your kidneys.

Due to the coronavirus I’m unable to get a CT scan in the UK
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I’m also feeling “weird” in the bladder region
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Can you tell me the nearest place to me I can get a CT scan or ultrasound
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I also had unprotected sex with a new partner a week and a half ago

You would have to call your regular GP or find a private doctor in your area who can request a CT or ultrasound.

"Weird" feeling could mean that you may be about to develop symptoms of a urine infection.

I am currently located in Sydney Australia.
