My 15 year old daughter had dull lower right sided abdominal pain that increased to intense pain over 2 days. No frequency, urgency, pain when urinating or fever. Physical exam presented like appendicitis. Ultrasound was negative for appendicitis and ovarian issues. Urine tests were positive for urinary tract infection.

My daughter gets frequent infections but it never hurts her or gives her other typical symptoms. The only thing she gets is the strong odor. I can smell it on her every time.

I've already taken antibiotics for 7 days for bladder infection and my urine is still smelly. When I came back to my doctor she examined my urine again told me that it is already clear, no need to take antibiotic and advised me to drink lots of water. I don’t know why it is still smelly.

My daughter is immunosuppressed and she had massive headaches and pain right around her bellybutton, which led to the diagnosis of bladder infection.

My 6-year-old daughter has been vomiting, has had a sore stomach, and has not been eating much for about five days. She has been up all night going to the toilet to wee every 30 seconds.

I pee a lot at night, and I only have pains in the lower area when I lay down. When I went to a swim practice, I sat out because I felt like I was going to vomit. My pee does smell strong, and it is also white. By the way, if anyone is reading this, if you have a bladder infection, don't eat or drink any milk products. If you do, the bacteria in the milk will not help you. It just makes things worse. You can't eat food with milk in it!
