I know my question's get dumber by the minute but is it actuallu possible to burst your bladder without known? I don't wanna google some stuff.

But i held back on peeing for quite awhile and i am worried i messed up my stuff.

I don't have much experience with urinary infection; I think I had one once or twice and the symptom was a burning feeling along with only passing a little at a time.  Feeling like I had to go, and only going a  little bit, and it was uncomfortable.

But I am very sure that a bladder cannot be burst by holding back.  I'm pretty sure that your urine would just start leaking out without your ability to control it if you held it so long that your bladder was full beyond capacity.

I've had urinary tract infections and kidney infections.  I've had a lot of kidney stones so I've had both.  UTIs I knew I had because my urine was reddish.  Didn't really hurt much, maybe just a tiny bit.  The kidney infections, on the other hand, were terrible.  Fever, pain, vomiting, urine looked like thick orange juice.

If you are afraid of UTIs, drink cranberry juice.

Your bladder cannot burst. If it gets too full, the worst thing to happen is you would wet yourself.

I have a TON of experience with UTIs

When I get one, it starts out with burning when I urinate or an odd smell and cloudy looking urine.

After that, if I don't start drinking water and cranberry juice like a maniac it will continually get worse and burn severely even when I am not going to the bathroom. It also feels like I have to go all the time.

I have also had a few UTI's where my urine had blood in it.

Other symptoms I feel when I get a UTI is cold and shaky, fever like symptoms, and fatigue.

Men's symptoms are normally amplified and they have a more severe pain because their urninary tract is longer.

Well i went to the doctor's this morning and done a urine test he said i had slight trace of blood and protein in my urine...

Got give a script for Trimethorprim 200mg x 2 a day and see the doctor on Monday come sent my urine sample off to somewhere.

Does this just mean i have an infection? Doctor seemed pretty rushed said one of the doctor's phoned in sick so they were having to fit his appointment's in.

Usually with a UTI it would be bacteria they would say is in your urine.

often it can mean UTI/bladder thing.

however sometimes there can be a trace of protein without much explanation.

my son had protein in his urine after having strep several years ago.

MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state

UTI is what I had badly when I went through menopause. So for me it was a hormonal imbalance. There was bleeding and terrible pain. It was first treated with anti-biotics.

This must be treated closely by a doctor. You need to be able to empty your bladder. Then you might want to ask your doctor about taking Vit. C which I feel keeps me this side of the divide re infection. If you continue to have pain I'd check with the doctor. Best to you.
