In brief: Bladder pain?

This requires a call to your doctor for an examination to determine the cause of the pain.
It may be from some other area than the bladder. Your doctor can determine the cause of the pain and then give proper treatment.

In brief: Depends

If the symptoms have been present for a very long time, it is unlikely a UTI since you have become worse.
If the symptoms are more acute in nature, it is likely a infection. The timing and clinical history is very important in trying to determine the cause. In addition, one also needs a urinalysis and other tests as needed to make the final determination.
