Hello good morning M. Ridwan.
Complaints of difficult BAK (urination) accompanied by high fever and headaches can be caused by several possibilities including:
Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). UTI is characterized by complaints of BAK pain, frequent and gradual BAK, cloudy BAK, fever, nausea, lower abdominal or lumbago pain, etc. UTI is more often experienced by women than men, because of the anatomical factor of the female urinary tract (urethra) which is shorter and closer to the anus.
Urinary tract stones (urolithiasis). In urolithiasis, the typical symptoms are BAK that is not smooth, difficult, choking, accompanied by severe pain (especially if the stone is in the ureter or kidney), a history of BAK with blood or sand, etc. In general, urolithiasis does not cause fever symptoms, but this urolithiasis condition can trigger an infection (because the BAK is not smooth) so that UTI symptoms can occur, such as fever. For urinary tract stones that are small in size, the treatment can be done by administering drugs, but if the stone size is bigger, other procedures can be performed, for example, with laser or surgery.
Enlarged prostate. This condition is generally experienced by elderly men. Symptoms of this disease include choked BAK, taking time to wait for urine to come out or even pushing, feeling incomplete BAK, etc. Handling can be by administering drugs or surgery, depending on the size of the prostate.
Urethra stricture, which is a condition of narrowing of the urethra (urethra). This disease can be triggered by an infection in the past, for example in people who have had sexually transmitted infections, or it can be due to the history of catheter insertion (urinary tube), prostate enlargement, etc.
Urinary tract tumors
Regarding the relationship with lack of drinking water, it could be related if what you are currently experiencing is a UTI or urolithiasis because not drinking enough can increase the risk of both diseases.
Regarding your question about what drug is suitable for you, it cannot be known without confirming your diagnosis first because each disease has different treatments and medicines. To diagnose your disease, you need a direct examination, especially seeing the many possible diseases you experience. Therefore we strongly recommend that you see a doctor immediately. In addition to questions and answers about complaints and physical examinations, the examining doctor may also suggest that you do additional examinations, such as urine lab tests, blood labs, ultrasound, X-rays, etc.
In the meantime, while waiting for the doctor's appointment, you can do the following suggestions
drink 8 glasses of water a day
You can take fever-reducing drugs such as paracetamol to help reduce heat
I hope this helps
