Hello. This is Dr Geyik and I will be assisting you today.

Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 16 days ago.

Can I please ask your age?

Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 16 days ago.

And do you have pain anywhere else, does it radiate, any fever, blood in the urine, urinary frequency, vomiting, or other symptoms?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
49 years old, yesterday felt a bit faint
Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 16 days ago.

Do you have any of the above symptoms?

Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 16 days ago.

You might have urine infection, kidney infection, or kidney stones. It is difficult to make a proper diagnosis online as we need to check your urine and complete a physical assessment. Are you able to see your GP today?

Expert:  Dr Geyik, MBBS replied 16 days ago.

The other option is to call 111 if you can't get hold of your GP but they only see patients after 18.30 and weekends.

You may also go to Walk in Clinic if there is one in your local area; or go to A+E if you feel unwell.
