I think I have a UTI (frequent urge to pee, pain with urination, cramping after urinating) and I plan on getting into the clinic first thing tomorrow morning but I was wondering if anyone knows of anything to help ease the symptoms I'm having right now. Mostly my urethra feels very irritated (almost an itchy feeling but more intense) and I'm having cramping in what feels like the region near my bladder. If anyone has any suggestions to ease this while I wait to get into the clinic it'd be much appreciated.

Try to drink a lot of water, and pure cranberry juice (no added sugar or other juices) really helps a lot. If you're getting cramping in your abdominal region it might be that the infection has spread to your bladder and/or kidneys, so make sure you let the doctor at the clinic know about the cramping. Good luck, and feel better soon!

Thanks for the tips. Irritation seems to have died down for now and I'll be sure to mention the cramping when I go in tomorrow.
