My clinic have sent me a letter requesting I go back for another urine test as they think I have a water infection but I feel fine so don't really understand it. I'm going back this afternoon but I just wondered can you have a water infection without feeling any ill effects?

you can actually feel ok, however you may not even have an infection, it could just be a contaminated sample that you submitted last time. sounds like they want another sample to double check.
should be ok,no harm double checking eh.

It is possible but general symptoms to look out for are :
Burning or uncomfortable sensation when you pass urine
Itching, smelly or unusual discharge or redness down below.
Sometimes when the dr /mw does a urine test they see things on the test stick indicating an infection.
Try not to stress as they can be easily treated.
Do try and flush out your system a bit though- water and clear fluids, stay away from fizzy drinks. Cranberry juice helps flush out toxins on the bladder too.
Hope you get sorted.

Also, if you have a temperature , back or tummy ache- those are symptoms too.

you really need to find out though because if you have got an infection if it isnt treated it could track to your you would REALLY know about that!
symptoms are below in last posters posting.

Thanks girls, yeah they do just want to do another test so it could well be nothing. I have had quite a lot of discharge lately but I've not noticed any nasty smell or anything. Ah well, even if it is nothing another appointment means I'll be home from work much earlier than usual so can catch up on my sleep
