30 year old male with severe pain during urination until urine flows, severe lower back pain, fever of 103.4...any ideas
The symptoms started around about 4 am january 15, at the start of urination, the pain is so severe that i have to sit down to urinate. I dont have any drainage, leaking, or discharge. The skin surrounding the opening in the urethra is irritated and bright red. My urine color ranges from pale yellow to yellow-orange. For the past 4 days I have been drinking all natural juices, mainly cranberry.
I wold suggest you get to an ER ASAP. I recently had these symptoms and it turned out to be prostatitis. How it happens, thy don't know. You are a young man should not be having this problem in your young life. However, there could be something else relative to kidneys. Get to the ER or your primary physician NOW!
I know this was a year ago, so I'm answering it only because if someone else has similar symptoms, he or she may see this.
Your description most closely matches that of a severe UTI, probably a raging kidney infection, and if you didn't go to an Emergency Department of a local hospital for immediate treatment, I hate to think what would have happened to you by now!
I used to get them a lot; in fact, last time I was in the hospital, they discovered I had a UTI.
I hope you got treatment. Anyone with your symptoms should consider them a true emergency. We human beings cannot live without our kidneys!
