Dear Suzie
It could be a bladder infection - rather have it tested!

Where do you get that from - I have monthly MC&S urine tests and when I am sick sometimes in between and they certainly dont cost R700! The urine test only costs no more than R200.

I have chronic kidney problems and know all about urine tests and know for a fact that they certainly dont cost what you said! I had one of these exact tests a week ago and it was, in fact, less than R200.

yes you could have a bladder or kidney infection, more likely a bladder infection - go to your gp and hand in a urine MC&S. An MC&S test is far more accurate because the sample is sent to the lab where they culture the sample for bacteria and if they get a positive result they can then do to tests to see wich antibiotic is sensitive/resistant to your type of infection if the results are positive. You can get the right antibiotic treatment.
