A:   Hello,

Welcome to Ask The Doctor.

You may be suffering from a UTI. An UTI occurs due to some infection of the urinary tract. Since you have several symptoms, I recommend that you consult a Urologist.

The Urologist will check urine and blood samples to reach a diagnosis. He will then start you on therapy of antibiotics and Paracetamol for fever.
