Hi @divawmaltese. I’m so sorry to hear about the pain you’re in. Here is some information about UTIs and home remedies you may find helpful: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/urinary-tract-infection/basics/lifestyle-home-remedies/con-20037892. If you’d like to get an expert’s answer, you may schedule an appointment at Mayo Clinic here: http://www.mayoclinic.org/appointments. Does anyone else have advice to share?

Home remedies are okay for UTIs, especially if you cannot afford to go to the doctor. A UTI is listed in my recent medical notes I read after I got home from a 3 day very long trip, and not a single doctor has mentioned it or talked to me. Considering all of the expensive tests that were run, and the fact that my insurance is paying them well over $100,000.00 for this visit, I would think that they could have extended the courtesy of mentioning my UTI, and given me a prescription to clear it up. Maybe they consider a UTI insignificant in the scheme of things, but this is no way to do business, in my opinion.
