Few symptoms such as: Increase of urinary frequency, urgency, burning, dribling, and possibly different odor in your urine may suggest a bladder infection/cystitis. Vaginitis may present with similar sx, and maybe itching/vaginal dicharge/odor. In the elderly, often in nursing homes etc..Uti may present as confusion, increase urinary incontinence etc...If you have concern, consult doc. Good luck.
