Urocystitis(cystitis) questions and answers

Health Description
Health Consultation Description: My 71 year old mother just went to the ER tonight. For 3 days, she has had stomach pain, joint pain, back pain, nausea and vomiting. They did some tests and said she has a bladder infection, which I looked up, and is also called cystitis? I remember years ago, she had this, and was very very sick from it. But everything I read about it, says nothing about fever, vomiting, etc. Years ago, she developed a very high fever with it, and was in serious condition from it. But everything I read says when vomiting and fever happen, that it usually means kidney infection, They tested her tonight, so she does not seem to have a kidney infection. How then, did she get so sick from a bladder infection?

Pain relievers: Why they help: Severe bladder infections can cause pain in the pelvic region even when you’re not urinating. Antibiotics will help you feel better, but it may take a day or two before the drugs kick in. Taking pain medications in the meantime can help relieve any abdominal cramps, back pain, or discomfort you may feel while urinating.

Do this:
Ask your doctor if it’s safe to take over-the-counter pain relievers. Taking acetaminophen or ibuprofen can take the edge off the pain as you wait for the antibiotics to start working.
