can a urinary tract infection cause headaches?


I think it probably could, but I would be wondering if you have a kidney infection which would effect you in more ways than a regular bladder infection. A kidney infection could have these symptoms:

Fever

Chills

Flank pain — pain in the middle or sides of the back.

Abdominal pain — over the bladder (suprapubic) located in the middle-lower part of the abdomen

Vomiting

Headache

Foul odor

Cloudy urine

There may be symptoms of lower Urinary Tract Infections
Dysuria-painful urination

Burning upon urination

Hematuria — Blood in the Urine

Frequent urination

Diarrhea

Difficulty with urination — such as initiating the urinary stream, bed wetting, frequent nighttime urination (nocturia) may also be present depending on the cause and risk factors.

Elderly patients may experience confusion and mental status changes.
