The most likely answer is a UTI, but go to a doctor ASAP to get it checked out.  Have you had any fever/back pain?  Are you on your period?  Any increase/decrease in amount of urine?  These are questions your doctor will ask you, so keep them in mind, but seriously call your doc and make an appointment for today.

ETA: just saw you don’t have a doctor, so the ER would be fine.  If you go in the morning, it’ll probably be less busy (8-10 was never too packed in my experience).

Well… that doesn’t sound like a UTI to me, I would personally get myself to a doctor.

 

ETA: Looks like I’ve been lucky, I’ve never had a UTI thats been that bad!

Yup, Just like my UTIs.  I would get to a doctor asap.  If you have any trouble getting you in tell them what you are going in for and your pain level, they will get you in before it turns to a kidney infection.

I agree–it’s most likely a UTI; that’s what mine have been like, too: miserable.  Get to a doctor and get it treated! as @tksjewelry says, you want it treated before it’s a kidney infection.

At this point, they’ll probably just give you a course of antibiotics and maybe some pain meds if you are in severe pain.

Unfortunately I have a health condition in which I get a UTI about every six weeks, I recently had surgery and am on medication to reduce these symptoms and now I get them every six months. I have never had blood in my urine due to a UTI. I did have blood in my urine once and it was due to issues with my kidney. Please see someone immediately to get this checked out. Good luck!

Good Luck, let us know what you find out after you see the dr!! 

I would try drinking a lot of cranberry juice, that might help a little!

I second the cranberry juice recommendation, it always helped me! My UTI’s has the same symptoms, they hurt and are miserable. Feel better soon.

I got my first UTI a few years ago on a camping trip. I was peeing blood in the forest and it was SO scary because I didn’t know what it was.

There are pain pills that you can take specifically for UTI’s that work WONDERS. I highly recommend picking some of those up.

Let us know the update! Feel better!

Oh boy.  I’ve had a UTI once, but never had any symptoms so after a week, it went straight to my kidneys.  That wasn’t fun whatsoever.  🙁 So I strongly suggest you get checked out ASAP because it can cause other problems.  Hope all is well and you’re feeling better soon.

BTW – I used to take cranberry pills for awhile to re-assure myself that I wouldn’t have a repeat after starting to have sex again.  I’m not sure if that’s why you got a UTI, but I do believe taking things beforehand to help prevent will keep your mind at ease.

I have a history of UTI’s (lonnnnnnnnnng story).  There is an OTC medicine that can help the pain relatively quickly, you might know it as ALCOHOL.

Haha, seriously, worst pain ever.  Get yourself to a Dr. before it turns into a kidney infection!

Sounds like a UTI, but I’ve known people (my Mom) where blood in the urine turned out to be a symptom of something much more serious. It’s probably just a UTI, like other posters have been saying, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Get thyself to a Doctor 🙂

 

Also, I wasn’t trying to be dramatic with that ^ statement or freak you out or anything…I just strongly believe that if something is clearly wrong, it shouldn’t be ignored. Let us know!
