Urinary : Urinary tract infection (UTI) and bladder infection are the same. Symptoms include burning or stinging with urination, increased urinary frequency, difficulty starting the urine stream, and blood or discolored/smelly urine. Progressing signs to a kidney infection include fevers, chills, and low back pain. You should seek medical attention if you think you might have a uti, to be appropriately treated.

If the infection is in the kidney pain in the flank or back, fever and chills are common. Uti encompasses both bladder and kidney infections.
