I don't have insurance I've heard of drinking lots of water but is there other ways I'm really getting uncomfortable :-(
You can't just get rid of a Urinary Tract Infection on your own by drinking lots of water! You have to go to the doctor and get a prescription for the proper Antibiotic. and this does not mean taking an old antibiotic that is in your medicine chest or taking one that a friend of family member gives you! I understand that you don't have insurance, but there are free medical services in most states and you can call your local health department or social Services and they can get you in touch with a clinic or doctor that will see people who don't have insurance for free. But please don't let a Urinary tract infection go it can move into the Kidneys and believe me you don't want that. I am not a medical professional, but I have made the mistake of not seeing a doctor when I knew that I had a bladder infection and within a few months the symptoms went away and I thought I was ok and then I became really sick with a Kidney infection and ended up in the hospital for almost 3 weeks! Please don't let this go.
Hope you feel better soon!
There are OTC things to help with the symptoms, such as AZO, but the only thing to cure it is antibiotics. You could try CVS's Minute Clinic - they can test on the spot and prescribe an antibiotic. Then call around for prices - Walmart has some common medications for $4.00. Call Walmart first and ask them what antibiotics they cover for that price, and ask the Minute Clinic doc if any of those will treat your infection. Best of luck - ElizaJane
