A urinary tract infection clinic in El Paso will be able to treat anything involving the urinary tract. According to the internet, a urinary tract infection is ‘a bacterial infection1 that affects the urinary system. The urinary system produces, stores and eliminates urine and consists of two kidneys, two ureters, the bladder, the urethra and two sphincter muscles.’
When it comes to this type of infection it is important to know that there are two different infections. There is a lower urinary tract infection (it affects the bladder and urethra) and an upper urinary tract infection (it affects the kidneys and ureters). The symptoms for the two infections can be different from each other.
If you happen to show signs of cloudy urine, if it might have an unpleasant smell coming from the urine, have blood in the urine, suffer from abdominal or back pain, have trouble urinating or are doing it frequently, then these are symptoms of a lower infection.
On the other hand if you show signs and symptoms of fever, shivering, vomiting and pain on your side, combined with some lower urinary tract infection, then chances are you have an upper tract infection.
We would also like to point out that there are times with older patients where they might not show these symptoms or signs but can have an infection. Regardless if you do show signs or not, it is important to visit a urinary tract infection clinic in El Paso.
