Symptoms:  Constant urge to urinate and frequent urination
Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. Urinary tract infections often start off with a sense of constantly wanting to urinate. This is called urgency. It can develop into painful lower abdominal discomfort, along with the presence of blood int he urine. We recommend that you have your urine tested for a UTI at your doctor's office. The sooner it is diagnosed and treated, the better.
