I have to go to the bathroom all the time but I can't go until its so full it feels like its going to burst. And it burns when I go to. I have had many bladder and uti infections before and I was just wondering if it is because of my fibromyalgia.

Hey MSers and Limbolanders, I just got over a bad UTI that has taken four antibiotics to eradicate!! One of the antibiotics (the 3rd one) was Cipro (which I had actually requested because I had read that it was so good for urinary tract infections). I will say that Cipro was, indeed, effective at zapping my infection.
All the tests came back clear except for my UTI. After a couple of hours in the ER, my speech and 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.
And recently have become able to lean over towards my toes and 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.
In addition to the community here, MedHelp also offers tools to help you and your doctor in your road to wellness. Fibromyalgia and CFS can be so intricate and 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.
so the Doc said to treat the UTI, take the Vit D and retest and 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 ...
It's not just the type of pain like muscle pain of fibromyalgia where I can pop a pill and sleep; it's the kind that hinders me at work and 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.
Still having aching pain in the base of my neck and 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.
She had acute bronchitis and 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.
( fine white partocles ) in urine and burning in Urethrea. I started taking a herbal remedy and 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.
The docs said this time I definitely have an autoimmune disease, it's not fibromyalgia, since there are a lot of other things going on besides joint and 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.
I was hospitalized in 2005 after years of UTIs because this particular UTI was a different bacteria and 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!
Needless to say, the dr gave me steroid injections in my knees to help the swelling. He told me that I had fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. He gave me Savella and 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.
I do have very low blood pressure and seasonal allergies though, but that's hereditary. They ruled out fibromyalgia because my bloodwork and 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.
Hi I did IUI on Saturday and am now doing the dreadful 2WW and 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.
He also tried to treat me for fibromyalgia but the Elavil and 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.
Anyways, I noticed several other women have this problem and some have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and 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?
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 and tender and more urgency. Did this get better for you over time or did you find out the cause?
But now I am 8 wks pregnant and 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..
It took me 3months to get of pain killers and antibiotics and 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?
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 and 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.
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 and 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.
We've worked it out and we are close now. The program and having Fibromyalgia 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.
BTW i have never been diagnosed of having UTI nd took the antibiotics only because of the pain and uncomfortable sensation on mt penis scrotum and rectal area. Does anybody here received a diagnosis?
Hi Welcome to the forum! Well chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia can be the possible diagnosis. Having said this I would still like to rule out other causes. Anemia, diabetes, electrolyte imbalance like that of sodium, potassium and calcium and an underactive thyroid all behave this way. These need to be ruled out first. Poor sleep patterns and sleep disorders are the other possibilities. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
it took numerous specialists and over 15 years to finally get a fibromyalgia and lupus diagnosis. My bloodwork was confusing to the doctors but I had so many other symptoms that lupus beame obvious. It's very frustrating not knowng what you're dealing with and having no official validation. Just keep at it, as hard as the process may be. Hang in there...
I've been going through what you describe, and more, since January of 2004, however, the bloating began long before then. Problem is, I would get an appointment with the doc and by the time I got there, the bloating would be down. Since January of 2004, I've been told I had rhuematoid arthritis, lupus, ruptured lumbar discs, pinched nerves, etc., etc., etc. I even received two epidural injections, which of course, did nothing, because that isn't what was wrong.
Welcome to Part 6! Please make yourself at home!
