    Hello Doctor I am a 26 year old female. Me and my husband have been trying to concieve, but have only been at it for 1 month. I still have yet to see my period, but the tests are coming out negative. My feet and back ache, I’m constantly thirsty, and I urinate too many times to count per day. I remember having to pee 3 times in a 45 minute car ride today though. According to what I have read online I have to wait longer to get an accurate test. Is it possible to get extremely early symptoms? Thanks!

    Jill, get some AZO or similar meds from the drugstore to stop your bladder cramps & then go get tested for a bladder/kidney infection.

    I have been working outside at the Zoo for 12 years. As of the last two day I have not changed my daily routine…. I will have a little glass of soy milk before work and go to the bathroom (urinate) then I will go to work drink a bottle of Gatorade with Mirlax in it, then a bottle of water or a Sierra Mist ( I haven’t drunk caffeen in 3 1/2 years) and only pee one time while I’m at work after drinking all of that…. I’m concerned please help.
    Thank You,
    Nikki Miller

    Hi Dr. Oz, 2 nights ago I was having some back pain so I took some medication that I had prescribed to me about a month ago called carisoprodol 350mg or soma. Yesterday I woke up in a lot of pain I had an exam at school, college student, and I made it to the exam but I couldn’t stay I had to walk out from there it took me about 2 hours to get to the doctors office an emergency med on a Saturday because not only was I nosious but I was so tired I was passing out. I finally made it in I had a fever of about 100 low blood pressure about 90/60 if I heart rate of around a 100 bpm, and severe dehydration. They couldn’t pin down what was wrong with me but made me feel alot better after I’ve left I’m having a problem keeping water in my system today I decided to measure how much I was urinating so I urinated into a bucket thinking that I wouldn’t fill it up but I did and I’m still dehydrated. I feel terrible what should I do. 30yo white male. Couldn’t find a relevant thread.
