Do not self treat: See a doctor and have them check your urine to see if there is an infection or what is causing your symptoms.We cannot diagnose you on this forum.

No: Before taking medication for a particular illness it is wise to make sure it is the correct illness that you are treating. Either call or go back and see the doctor, you may be wrong again. Good luck.
