358304_tn?1409713092 I went BACK to my doctor, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> he tested me for a UTI, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> it was NEGATIVE. He then though I COULD have a bladder infection (which is rare in men) and he put me on antibiotics for 2 weeks. IT DID NOTHING FOR ME. I was in AGONY. Could not even sleep at night. After calling him and going back to him he was STUMPED. He said "does your lower back happen to be hurting? I said, YES!!! I keep stretching it.

Avatar_m_tn First time herpes symptoms start off with a sore that opens and spreads the virus to the sourronding area in a cluster type grouping <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> then flu like symptoms can develope. I dont see the connection to a UTI as those consist of urethra discomfort and a puss discharge. Also her symptoms started to early to be herpes connected.
867582_tn?1311630997 I was prescribed Cipro. The urinalysis <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> abdominal scan were both negative. No UTI <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> No stone. Within a few days of starting the coarse of Cipro, I felt like I was sitting on a hot plate. I decided to see a urologist and again was tested for infection, all negative. The urologist thought that the burning sensation I had was due to my prostate being congested! He performed what is called Prostate Massage or Prostate milking.
Avatar_m_tn All the tests came back clear except for my UTI. After a couple of hours in the ER, my speech <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> movement started to come back. Before we left, my speech was back to about 98%. I'm a 30 year old with fibromyalgia. My family has a history of stroke and high-blood pressure. But my blood pressure has always been great, and was at the ER as well. I started taking Tramadol as a main pain reliever, and recently added a Vicodin on the bad (read: REALLY BAD) days.
10641686_tn?1411758780 and recently have become able to lean over towards my toes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> feel my vertebrae separating (not popping). Really no uti symptoms. Have had times in the last 2 years where I have menstral type cramps all month long. in 2013 I had a diagnostic laparoscopy to look for endrometriosis. they did not fing that but did discover my bowel sheath had been sucked into two small hernias. the bowel sheath was cut away but hernias not repaired.
975514_tn?1325001538 In addition to the community here, MedHelp also offers tools to help you and your doctor in your road to wellness. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fibromyalgia</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> CFS can be so intricate <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> can have so many different symptoms. Due to this, it is very helpful that MedHelp offers health trackers for us to utilize. We can track our progress and especially our flare ups. Below are just a few trackers that I find useful. • CFS/FMS Tracker - • Pain Tracker - http://www.medhelp.
168348_tn?1379360675 so the Doc said to treat the UTI, take the Vit D <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> retest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> then we'll see .. he also wanted me on Lipitor type drug for now readings of high cholesterol .. I said, diet first .. he finally agreed to let the UTI settle down first and that was not a fasting test ..........I didn't know he was running a panel like that .. I thought only uric acid + TSH ...
Avatar_f_tn It's not just the type of pain like muscle pain of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fibromyalgia</span> where I can pop a pill <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sleep; it's the kind that hinders me at work <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> wtih my kids, doing daily tasks with my hands and back (I apparently pull things easily) and that keeps me up at night!! I also have a finger that is weird looking (don't know if you call it trigger finger or what). It will not flatten; it is my ring finger on the left, my dominant hand.
Avatar_f_tn Still having aching pain in the base of my neck <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> moves to the sides up to center of skull . Feeling chilled, sensation in legs and arms with a feeling of weekness. point in the middle of my chest (like a pulse point) burns like indigestion and now the feeling has moved lower and you can actually feel it a pulse point. Doesn't do it all the time. Feels like my chest is pounding.
Avatar_n_tn She had acute bronchitis <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a UTI. She took three doses. She also had a range of other thins wrong with her one of which was lose of about 75% of her kidneys. The next day she went back to the ER and was admitted to CCU. She was severely dehydrated and her kidneys weren't filtering any at all. Could this drug have caused her Kidneys to fail like that? She also had pulmonary fibrosis, pace maker defibrillator, diabetes, fibromyalgia and the failing kidney. She passed away 8 days later.
Avatar_f_tn ( fine white partocles ) in urine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> burning in Urethrea. I started taking a herbal remedy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the casts disappeared, burning let up quite a bit. Within in a few days urine was clear, and since I had made a DRs appt. decided to keep it. Urine tested negative for bacteria but was put on antibiotic for 2 wks. My stomach became upset with pain at night so stopped that.
16615961_tn?1454423687 In the last 2 years after diagnosis, I had a severe case of mono in which my liver enlarged, my cholesterol has been high, I was recently diagnosed with hyperglycemia, my HR is always really high, and occasionally high BP, hospitalized for a severe UTI that turned into a horrible bladder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> kidney infection. I am resistant to most antibiotics, and I am just constantly ill. I am always exhausted and there are days that I don't even get out of bed.
293157_tn?1285877039 The docs said this time I definitely have an autoimmune disease, it's not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fibromyalgia</span>, since there are a lot of other things going on besides joint <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> muscle pain. *sigh* fibromyalgia ain't that great of a diagnosis either, but well, you just gotta make lemonade out of the lemons in life... or make some sangria with them.
1011295_tn?1320874572 I was hospitalized in 2005 after years of UTIs because this particular UTI was a different bacteria <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> had to go on 16 days of IV antibiotics. It wiped out the infection, and I've had no more UTIs since. But, the funny thing, while I was on the IV antibiotics and for a total of one month, I was symptom free of all my pain...joint pain, muscle pain, headaches, everything!
Avatar_f_tn Needless to say, the dr gave me steroid injections in my knees to help the swelling. He told me that I had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fibromyalgia</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> osteoarthritis. He gave me Savella <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> muscle relaxers and sent me home. He also found that my Vitamin D was really low so he started me on high levels of that too. The VERY NEXT DAY I was in such severe pain! I thought that my bones were being pulled apart by my muscles. I would cry if I moved. My husband couldn't even touch me. The doc said to decrease the Savella.
Avatar_n_tn I do have very low blood pressure and seasonal allergies though, but that's hereditary. They ruled out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fibromyalgia</span> because my bloodwork <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> labs show that I actually do have high inflammation. My liver enzymes are high, my white cells are high. My reds are normal, my blood oxygen is normal. My bilirubin has been high, and normal, and high, on and off. My urea nitrogen has been low, and my fasting glucose is borderline low.
16615961_tn?1454423687 This year alone I had a really bad UTI that turned into a bladder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> kidney infection <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I was sick for 3 months. Not to mention the shot they gave me messed up my leg for months after that. I also have RA since age 16. and fibromyalgia add of the last year. and it seems as soon as I recover from one thing something else happens.
Avatar_n_tn Hi I did IUI on Saturday <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> am now doing the dreadful 2WW <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I am already feeling discouraged but not defeated. I have PMS signs and it sucks cuz IF and WHEN AF shows up I'm gonna feel like burying my self under my sheets and never waking up. Don't mean to seem negative but today I am feeling prety down. Anyhow good luck to both of us.
Avatar_n_tn He also tried to treat me for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fibromyalgia</span> but the Elavil <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Cymbalta had weird adverse affects on me by keeping me up all night and having restless legs. So i never followed through with this diagnosis I really think this is my TSH level making me feel so crappy all the time.
Avatar_f_tn Anyways, I noticed several other women have this problem and some have been diagnosed with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fibromyalgia</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> others with gallbladder or pancreas diseases. I am aware that this could even be a UTI but I have no other symptoms so I dont believe that is the case. My question is: Is this a normal thing for women or should I go back to a doctor?
Avatar_n_tn I also had bv, but had been taking cranberry and probiotics like you thinking it was a uti. Then the flagyl made my bladder feel swollen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> tender <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> more urgency. Did this get better for you over time or did you find out the cause?
Avatar_f_tn It took me 3months to get of pain killers <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> antibiotics <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> to feel normal again. But after that I have only had two UTI in a year which I think is cause of the surgery. Also I take cranberry tablets every day the higher does the better and drink at least 2.5 L of water a day. But to get to the point, I have only had 3 yeast infections but they start at my clitoris and itch and burn like crazy and have found the little white stuff around the hood?
Avatar_n_tn But now I am 8 wks pregnant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> have had what I thought was a UTI for 2 goin on 3 wks now!! I am going crazy!! I have taken every antibiotic known to man that is safe for a pregnant lady and no relief. i know that i was diagnosed w/ cytolytic vaginosis awhile back so I read up on it, but w/ being prgenant I dont know if it is the right diagnosis. I am going pregnancy crazy trying to figure this out. It is effecting my life and I can't do my job as well. Again, thank you all..
Avatar_n_tn My son and I come home and I get a call from my sister who goes over after work to put her to bed and to sometimes give her dinner if she is hungry stating that my mother is hurting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> that she also may have another UTI, so off to the ER they go. My mother is so important to me that I am risking my life to do what I do but I will not stand by and see her hurt. I even had to put her in her wheelchair and push her back into the living room from the bathroom.
Avatar_n_tn For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
Avatar_f_tn We've worked it out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> we are close now. The program <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fibromyalgia</span> has taught me not to be a doormat and stand up for myself. I finally (to capsulize it) told my Mom that I learned a great thing from how she raised me.......How not to raise my children. It was a wake-up call for her and opened dialogue. I asked that she put down her guard and let me get to know the woman she is so we could be friends. It's good now, after a few tongue lashing and hugs.
