The Answer

You are absolutely correct, the symptoms you describe do fit with an infection of the urine (UTI). As it has been going on for more than 24 hours, it is likely that you will need some antibiotics to cure it. You need to see your doctor and have your urine checked for infection. Go and make an appointment now. Sometimes urine infections can reach the kidneys making you feel very ill with back pain and fever. If this is the case see your doctor urgently.
