    I noticed after we went swimming in the river 2 days ago I felt nausea, vomitted a few times, fever, swelling in my feet, then when I went to the bathroom when we got home I almost teared up. Not right when I started to pee, but a few seconds during, I felt a severe pain..that seems to be coming from inside.. and I wasn't able to finish urinating because the burning or itching & doesn't feel like my kidneys..Does anyone have any information regarding this? I did some research theres several infections you can get from cold water! Please help..I have no insurance & don't know how much longer I can take this pain.
