Doctor :   Hello, Welcome to Ask The Doctor. You may be suffering from a UTI. An UTI occurs due to some infection of the urin ary 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.
