Symptoms of bladder infection

There are a number of symptoms associated with bladder infection.
A bladder infection or urinary tract infection (UTI) is a bacterial infection that has effect on any part of the urinary tract. When bacteria penetrate in the bladder and multiply in the urine, it causes a UTI.


  • Burning or pain during urination (dysuria).
  • Frequent urination.
  • Bladder spasms and the feeling of having to urinate even though little or no urine actually comes out.
  • Fever – mild infections often won’t cause fever, but moderate to severe bladder infections that involve the kidneys do cause fever.
  • Bloody or foul-smelling urine

Be aware that these symptoms don’t necessarily mean the bladder infection symptoms; they just mean there might be a bladder infection.


Sometimes the bacteria causing a bladder infection with lead up into the kidneys and cause a kidney infection. This can be serious, since kidney infections can scar the kidneys.

Most bladder infections don’t turn into kidney infections and a small scar in one kidney infection is harmless. But kidney infections are to be taken very seriously and treated promptly.

The above sited symptoms can point on kidney infection.
Here are other symptoms that a bladder infection has turned into a kidney infection:

  • Lower back pain or side pain in area where the kidneys are located.
  • Fever. Bladder infections often don’t cause fever. High fever indicates a possible kidney infection. Unlike “viral infections” in which the fever fluctuates between normal and very high, with kidney infections the fever stays high (usually 102º or higher) and your child looks and acts progressively sicker.
  • Vomiting is also a common symptom when a kidney infection is present.

There is usually no outward sign on the penis or vagina that are symptoms of bladder infection.

Bladder infections are not serious if treated right away. Some people develop symptoms of bladder infection when no infection actually exists. Termed interstitial cystitis, this is usually benign but difficult to treat.

Checking a urine sample is the only way to diagnose a bladder infection.
