Is this a uti?

I posted yesterday about cystitis treatments as that's what I thought I had - feeling of needing to go to loo, tender tummy, but no pain on urinating.

Today I feel worse - achey, shivery(yes I know it's cold!), awful headache, feel quite bloated and weirdly I have put on 3lbs since I weighed myself last Saturday - my weight is usually very stable (my mother thought this might be to do with a uti). I have been taking canesten oasis, but still have the wanting to wee all the time feeling. Also, very thirsty - which is crazy as I'm drinking lots of water!?

best go to GP and take sample and get ABs if need be.

Sounds like it might be a UTI, but best see GP. Take a sample if you can as hf suggests. Sooner the better.
