i dont know what to do other than -- cry-- since i got up this morning ive been to the loo numerous times, who knew the bowel can hold so much??. I also seem to have symptoms of a uti, im on my own with 2 kids all day, there is no way i can be away from my bathroom for any length of time so cant get to drs although they prob wont have any appointments left!

What can i do ??? Even to help me through till tomorrow!

Could you get someone to pop a wee sample into the gp for you?

Does sound like a UTI sad.

Typically my parents and pil are away on hols, my sis is working, i would normally rely on my aunty as theyonly live a few doors away but there has been a huge family fall out, i have text dp but hes in a meeting 2 hours away!

Gwad that makes me sound pathetic <sobs>

sad, doesn't make you sound pathetic (i'm often in the same situation), how far away is the GP's, could you bung the kids in the car (if you have one) and drop a sample off? You need antibiotics, theres not much else you can do other than take pain killers and spen the day on the toilet. Make sure you drink plenty and try and put your feet up.

also drink lots

Thanks! I cant drive, sadly! My old gps just used to give me them over the phone but i dont think this gps will, they dont seem to be answering thier phones anyway! I will stick with pain killers and water, thanks.

do you have any immodium? i had a bad diarrohea bug and awful kidney pain as water was going straight through my stomach and out again as oppose to down all the tubes that it should do. once the squits stopped, so did the kidney pain.

Ahh, i think i do have immodium as i got some for going on hols! On a positive note ive not been to the loo for ove half an hour, i just feel weak and shaky now!
