Can UTI's be accompanied by hot/cold flashes?
I just found out from culture I have a UTI which I have suspected for about a week (even though it's so hard to tell with IC too! ugh). Throughout this week I have had hot/cold flashes. Is this normal to accompany urinary infections?Facebook- Ann Stockmeyer Rachinger

It can be. Have you discussed it with your doctor?

I get the hot and cold flashes when I get a uti, for me it is the symptom that tells me I need to get tested, I often can not tell if i have a uti, my other symptoms mimic uti's so much. If my infection has been left untreated for a while which doesn't happen much any more since I carry a rx for ab's all the time now, i also get heart symptoms, my heart races and causes chest pain. When this happens I am really sick and usually means it has spread to my kidney.
This is something you should discuss with your Dr. at first when I got the hot and cold flashes they just thought it was a symptom of my IC, but I kept a record and it is a symptom of infection for me.
It is just good for your Dr. to know what is normal for you or not.
