Nausea, headache, side pain, pelvic pain, burns when I pee for the past 2 days. Feel sick and uncomfortable. Taking Cystex and lots of water.

UTI.: Your symptoms could very well be due to a urinary tract infection, but the side pain and nausea are particularly worrisome for the infection tracking up to the kidney (s). I think you need to be seen by your doctor, or perhaps an urgent care for urinalysis and treatment. Please do so as soon as possible, as if this is an infection it could get worse.

Yet, IC is not bacterial so Cystex may not ease burning. Nonetheless, you may try it for 1-2 weeks and see if helpful or not. ...Read more
