Sorry maybe TMI.
Since yesterday I have had the most awful pain in my groin and lower tummy, especially during and after passing urine, but also at other times, sometimes I feel it in my lwoer back. I am not feeling the need to go more frequesntly and have drunk a lot of water today, but it's not really helped.
I got some cystitis medicine stuff but it ahsn't helped and I've had cystitis before and it wasn't like this. is it a UTI instead?

Sounds like it. Get thee to your GP!

IME you can get an infection that shows up anwhere from your kidneys to your urethra (sp?) and they all count as a UTI. GP, nice antibiotics, all over in a day or so.
