Hi Hippi and BHK, thanks for the input. Actually I still feel the same nbut my temp has gone down. So I guess that's a good thing. Hippi I live in a rural area like you do. They have one little clinic in this town and it's not even open during the week half the time. My ear is a little better than yesterday. Who knows maybe I'm working on some kind of virus with this problem with feeling like I have an ear infection and bladder infection. It may be linked together. Just somthing my body is trying to kick.
BHK, that's really interesting about the same pain and it being your bowels. I used to have weeks like you with only one BM. I still can go 3 days without one. I do keep a jug of water in the fridge but I really am not a big water drinker. I know I should drink more. I need to do some reserch on the c-berry juice. I was always told to drink it. Now you got my interest peaked.

Thanks Lynnwood, Marji, and Pat, I actually feel better tonight with the bladder. I drank tons of water. I have water setting next to me right now.
Lynnwood thank you for the article. I'm going to send it on to some of my female friends. I thought it was quite informative. Except for the part that said to urinate after sex. I don't know about most women but there is no way I can do that for at least an hour LOL. Marji, my doctor said I have a tipped bladder so I know what you are saying about having a reserve. I have to move around in different positions to releive all of it. That was very interesting about the Parsley. I never heard of anything like that. I might just have to try that. I rent a reverse osmosis because my water here is just awful.
Patty you know now that you mention it. I have been given cranberry juice with a lot of meals when I'm in the hospital. I hope you are enjoy this oklahoma weather.
love ya all
How is the weather down there is OK now? I know it is a recent move for you. Here in St. Louis it has been quite comfortable the past few days (mid 70s).
I have the same symptoms from time to time with my bladder and it does cause pain a the upper part of my inner thighs, etc. I have a condition of microscopic hematuria which means most of the time some kind of inflammation in my bladder. My urologist says to drink lots of water (until you are peeing clear liquid almost as clear as the water you drank) and that way you know you are drinking enough. I asked him about the cranberry juice theory and he didn't say one way or the other if it really helps but did tell me about the cranberry pills you can buy so for those of thus that are sensitive to tastes, pills are much better. I also keep a box of Uristat or Pyrdium on hand at home in case problems appear so you can catch them when they start and can start treatment before it gets bad. The Uristat is over the counter and works as good as a prescription. It's like a number/muscle relaxer specifically for the bladder. Most of the time I have bladder symptoms but don't develop a full fledged infection and it is nice to be able to take something to get rid of the symptoms. Does any of this help? I hope so. I seem to be rambling. Sorry.
Hope you are feeling much better now.
