I wondered why I was feeling low, now I know!😫

Yes, have been feeling "off" only just feeling like getting out for some short runs, and then getting an intermittent dull burning pain in the lower abdomen, (which has now subsided on it's own accord) so had bloods & urine tested and turns out to be a urinary tract infection (uti) doc today prescribed a weeks course of antibiotics and says it could be what's making me feel low.

Anyway, will try to keep up with the short runs and hope to be back to normal soon..😊

They are little blighters UTI's. Look after yourself and get better, protect your kidneys by keeping hydrated and flushing it out your system. I let one go on too long once and it went to my kidneys, never gain 😳.

We are both doing fine thank you. I have to even more careful with things like that now but I learnt a bitter lesson with my UTI/Kidney infection last time, it was after a HM when I got dehydrated and didn't stop for a loo break, never again will I make that mistake. The tablets kick it into touch really fast which helps. Take care.

You might drink some barley water as it's good for the waterworks. Robinsons is good but other brands are available. I like it with boiling water in as well. Hot lemon! Lovely ice cold too.

I hope you'll feel 100% soon!
