Hi... I had jaundice last year, and recovered slowly from it... During my illness, I naturally drank a lot of water and consumed a large amount of citrus fruits, which caused me to urinate very often... I had thought that I would recover automatically once I stopped drinking so much water, however ever since my illness, I have had to urinate every hour or so, despite the fact that my water intake is not that much... It has been like this for a long time now, and I don't know what to do... For the past two days this has worsened, and the urine is now accompanied by a slight burning feeling which remains even after I've finished, and today a drop of blood came out as well... I would really appreciate any help that I can get, as I don't know what to do...
Since the illness was 1 year back, it is more likely that you might have recovered completely from the liver illness.
To know the current cause of your symptoms, (most likely a Urinary infection) get a physical examination, lab tests including Liver and kidney functions, urinalysis, and complete blood counts, which will help in providing a proper medical opinion .
