What Are Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)?
If you're searching for a bathroom everywhere you go and have the constant urge to urinate, you may have a urinary tract infection. A urinary tract infection (UTI) affects the urinary system, which includes the kidneys, bladder, ureters, and urethra. Sometimes called a bladder infection, this acute issue is more common in women than men. Symptoms of UTIs can include:
- A strong urge to urinate
- Cloudy or pink-colored urine
- Pelvic pain
- Passing small amounts of urine at a time
- A burning feeling while urinating
The compassionate team at Rockwall Rapid Care provides same-day appointments and effective treatments for urinary tract infections. If you have symptoms of a UTI, get in touch with our office in Rockwall, TX to schedule an urgent care visit today.
What Causes UTIs?
Most simply, UTIs develop when bacteria enters the urethra and bladder, causing an irritation and inflammation that may lead to infection. Several factors can increase your risk for developing UTIs. Once you have a prior UTI, you are much more likely to be susceptible to them in the future. Sexual activity is the leading cause of UTI development. However, various other factors, such as pregnancy and bacterial changes in the environment can also influence urinary tract health. If you suspect you may have a UTI, and have risk factors, contact our Rockwall, TX office today to set up an appointment to get you on track to health.
What Are the Signs of a Urinary Tract Infection?
Recognizing the signs of a UTI is crucial for early detection and prompt treatment. Some common symptoms include a frequent and intense urge to urinate, accompanied by a burning sensation during urination. The urine may appear cloudy or have a strong, unpleasant odor. Pain or discomfort in the lower abdomen or back and a feeling of pressure in the pelvic area can also indicate a UTI. Sometimes, UTIs may cause blood in the urine or result in fever and fatigue. If you experience any of these symptoms, schedule an appointment at Rockwall Rapid Care to receive a quick diagnosis and treatment.
How Are UTIs Treated?
Urinary tract infections are treated during urgent care visits at Rockwall Rapid Care. Dr. William Fieldsmith will talk with you about your symptoms and health history. A urine sample will be taken that will allow us to detect the presence of bacteria that are involved with a urinary tract infection. Because UTIs are typically bacterial infections, most simple cases can be treated with a round of antibiotics. More complicated UTIs might require a longer course of antibiotics, and pain medications can also be prescribed to ease any discomfort, like burning when you urinate. In addition, be sure to drink plenty of water to help your body flush away the bacteria.
Rockwall Rapid Care Reviews
Amazing seriously just go here! My normal urgent care (texas med.) Was closed due to short staffing. I had symptoms of a severe kidney infection. Oh the irony because I educated patients in kidney failure for a job. So I looked online and signed in to go to rapid care. Best decision I could have made. 20 min. Later I arrived with my kids in tow. You pull up press a button on the intercom and someone comes out. Just as I was speaking to the tech at the window my 7yo projectile vomited ,(this is my life). She was totally fine apparently just needed to puke. It was everywhere in my car. The tech was amazing. He got me a trash bag gloves cleaner, water, and even a towel for my daughter to put on her booster seat. We joked that maybe she should be seen to. After cleaning up my one child we we're brought in, I gave my sample etc the normal stuff. They treated my kidney infection with meds. And on my way I went. They are awesome go here
As a retired RN and new to Texas i was impressed by the efficiency and cost savings when i found myself needing quick and efficient care on a Saturday afternoon. I recommend giving this hidden gem a try if you’re caught on a weekend and don’t want to spend your day waiting in an overcrowded ER/ urgent care.
Fantastic place. Highly organized with a dedicated, professional, welcoming staff. I’ve never been here before today and this will be my new go-to when I need medical assistance in a hurry.
I took a good fall yesterday & needed to get some X-rays done. After calling Carenow with a 4 hr wait & Medpost no X-rays that day, I stumbled across this place. It had 5 star reviews too. I decided to go & the appt process was super easy, checking in was a breeze, ZERO WAIT TIME (huge perk), the rooms were high tech, clean, and awesome chairs. I was in & out with X-rays done in 30 min!! I am a huge fan now & I will be singing their praises as they are much deserved. Thank you to the staff for your fast & efficient work.
Needed a sports physical at the last minute and they came to the rescue!

Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) FAQs
Can urinary tract infections go away on their own without treatment?
In some cases, a mild UTI might resolve on its own without treatment. However, it is generally recommended to seek medical attention and receive appropriate treatment to prevent the infection from spreading to the kidneys or causing complications.
How can UTIs be prevented?
To help prevent UTIs, it is important to maintain good hygiene, drink plenty of water, urinate frequently, and empty the bladder before and after sexual activity. Wiping from front to back after using the toilet and avoiding irritating feminine products or douches can also reduce the risk.
What are the biggest risk factors for developing a UTI?
Several factors can increase the risk of developing a UTI, including being female (due to the shorter urethra), sexual activity, menopause, urinary tract abnormalities, urinary catheter use, a weakened immune system, and certain medical conditions like diabetes.
