  • If you are not urinating, not passing gas and not having bowel movements, this is a very serious problem that requires immediate medical attention. The inability to urinate could indicate that you have low blood pressure, poor renal function, or many other serious conditions. The fact that you have not had a bowel movement and are bloated seems to indicate a possible bowel obstruction or bowel perforation. This is a very serious condition that left untreated can lead to death. The fact that you are no urinating is an ominous sign and I advise you to go to a local ER for further examination. By the way- fever can be a late sign in some people. The absence of fever does not mean this is not serious.

Have had cold sweats but no tempIt sounds like you have a urinary tract infection, go to the pharmacy and buy some test strips to test your urine. You should go and see the doctor to seek treatment just to make sure everything is ok.
