Anyone who has experienced a UTI will not forget it. Symptoms can range from extremely uncomfortable to painful and unbearable at times — both when you urinate and when you don’t!

Common UTI symptoms

As the infection spreads, you may experience cramping, pain or pressure in the lower abdomen or back. If your kidneys become infected, you may also have a fever and/or chills. A kidney infection is nothing to ignore. If you think you have one, see your healthcare provider immediately.
