She states, “I feel the need to constantly walk around.” Upon further questioning, the client reveals a history of dysuria, urgency, and frequency of urination. As the nurse obtains a history, she notes that the client has no facial grimace and is not making eye contact. The client states, “I am sorry to come in with this pain, I have tried to treat it at home with Creeping Charlie, but it just did not help.”
