UTI question

Hi all,

I was wondering if I could find out from as many of you as possible if you ever have any warning as to when you have a UTI/bladder/kidney infection if you get them regularly please?

I've found that the only way I can tell if there is something abnormal in that area is when I get up in the morning and pretty much promptly pass out or feel very ill (ill enough to basically crawl back into bed because there's no way I'm going to make it to work that day). Is this the same for the rest of you or do you have some kind of advanced warning which you can tell when something like that is happening and can pick something up from the doctor before it interferes with your life like that?

I'm not on a permanent course of antibiotics and I really don't want to be if I can help it because I don't like the thought of my body getting immune to all of them until I can't take anything else and end up with worse problems because of it.

Basically I'm worried. In my previous job I was put on report for having so many sick days per year and a good majority of those were UTI's that had laid me low for a couple of days at a time. I'm now in a job I really love and I don't want the same thing to happen again and have it put my job at risk.

Does anyone have any tips or tricks I can look out for please?
