Recurrent Urinary Tract Infections: Causes & Symptoms
Chronic or recurrent urinary tract infections are infections of the UTI that keep recurring even though treatment has been provided. UTI’s can happen to anyone at any age, but are more common in women. Men can encounter recurrent urinary tract infections if they have an enlarged prostate. When the prostate is enlarged then it becomes harder to empty the bladder completely of urine.
However, there are symptoms of recurrent UTI such as frequent urination, bloody or dark urine, a burning sensation while going to the bathroom, pain in your kidneys, or pain in your bladder region. However, if the UTI begins to affect your kidneys you can experience nausea, vomiting, chills, a high fever, fatigue, and mental disorientation.
