I have had problems passing water, I feel as if I want to then nothing happens, at times it has been very painful, I cut out all caffeine, spicy food and acid food. Last night my stomach swelled so much, I kept drinking water, all night just small amounts. Trying to get in touch with my doctor is hopeless, now waiting, 50 in queue. Last time hung on 40 and cut off.

Thank you all. Finally got through to surgery and had a urine test, blood in it so put me on antibiotics, and sent tge sample of for more tests. I look about 5 months pregnant, it doesn’t match the face though. Hopefully will feel better soon.

If it's a UTI the antibiotics clear it up very quickly. Hope you feel better soon.

I think A and E is your best option. Please don't hesitate or be afraid to go. Not being able to pass urine needs immediate attention! This sounds to be more than an infection and I urge you to go now . Good luck.

Sparkling, glad you’ve started antibiotics- that should sort it out. If you’re still in pain, you could be having a small kidney stone. I’m not a Doctor, but I had similar symptoms as yours, and it turned out to be a small kidney stone, which eventually passed through.
Hope you feel better soon…

If it is a Kidney stone, it can be broken up with ultrasound.
As dust it will pass almost unnoticed.
Far better than the pain, and risk, of passing it complete.
