    Kidney problems. The infection climbs up the urethra to the kidney and becomes pyelonephritis.

    Marty: The future, it's where you're going?
    Doc: That's right, twenty five years into the future. I've always dreamed on seeing the future, looking beyond my years, seeing the progress of mankind. I'll also be able to see who wins the next twenty-five world series.

    If you came here looking for a reason to ignore it and not go to the doctor... there isn't one. Kidney Damage -> Sepsis -> Hospital Stay. UTI's that turn into a serious bladder/kidney issue are a big deal. If you haven't been to a doctor, you don't even know that it is a UTI in the first place. Can get bladder stones, cysts, tumors, STD's that all present the same way out of the gate.

    It's probably a UTI but it still requires a test and treatment. Even if it doesn't get worse, you can end out with scarring and long term problems from any infection that isn't treated.

    UTI -> Kidney Infection -> Sepsis -> Death/Death of Kidneys (permanent dialysis/transplant)

    That's the chain. Once it hits Kidney Infection you're probably going to be hospitalized (blood in urine is an early warning sign). Fever will set in shortly after, if it hasn't already. (like dispatch said, it could be multiple things, though, but don't bank on it)

    If you don't see a doctor soon you'll be in the hospital for a week. This can be treated with a 10 minute doctor visit and some antibiotics. If you don't have insurance, well, a doctor is much cheaper than a week long hospital stay.

    Don't let it get to sepsis.

    Just going to mention for secondary Help/Advice purposes that there should be a whole shelf of OTC UTI remedies at your local drug store. My wife gets the AZO stuff, I presume it works well enough.

    Though the OP is probably past this point.

    Seconded. I'll double down on AZO and the Cystex stuff if it is particularly bad, and usually in a day or two things are back to normal.

    That being said, this is not something to mess around with if you are already pissing blood. Please go get checked out.
