Avatar_n_tn I was on antibiotics an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> a week an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> a bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> and i finished my l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st pill yesterday. While i was taking the pill my symptoms went away and everything was fine. Then i started an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan>ching after i urinated which i thought was due to a very mild yeast infection. So i took Diflucan yesterday as well. Then yesterday i noticed a slight ache/pain after i urinated similar to the one i had previously but not as bad. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doesan> that mean that an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan> is coming back?
Avatar_f_tn I have a bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>, I think. So I called my Dr and told him what was going on. He prescribed Septra generic DS. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan> made me so sick that I called him back and asked what to do and he said an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan> would be alright to an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> a half pill twice a day instead of a whole one. This is the second time I've had a bladder infection in two months. The first time was when I was in the hospan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan>al. No catheter was used. They sent me home wan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan>h a script an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> Septra and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan> cleared up wan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan>h in 5 days.
Avatar_f_tn I had a 105 degree temp, chills, sweats, when I got up at 4 in the morning to pee, I thought I peed myself but there was blood all down my leg and when I looked there was about 1/2 cup on the floor from my bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder... then the horrible bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder spasms started and the worst <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>.

Avatar_n_tn I'm 30 years of age and was just to the doctor (MD Internal Medicine) wan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan>h symptoms of a bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> (painful urination, frequent urges, chills) which I'm familiar wan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan>h, only this time I had some spotting and very bad lower back pains, and a possible fever the one day, but none since...thus the reason I went to the doctor.

Avatar_f_tn Doc at the clinic casually mentioned that since an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan>'s not resolving maybe an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan>'s not a bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> but something to do wan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan>h surgery? He said could have a build up of fluid that is giving symptoms of infection?

Avatar_f_tn Was the cystoscopy the only way to detect the bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>? Could this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> be the cause of my night sweats? Like I said I have learned to live wan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan>h an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan>. I drink no more than 40 oz of liquid a day, and I stay away from water. Water makes my bathroom visan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan>s increase by 10 fold. I do not drink my liquids fast ean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan>her, that will also increase my urges. Will the infection ever go away? I do not have any pain, i just go too much.
996658_tn?1249678769 I have been on Dilaudid an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> 30 days IV and orally. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan> was a horrible experience.

Avatar_n_tn Hi again! Your symp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>ms really do sound like your gallbladder. Believe an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan> or not, I was misdiagnosed at first. I went to my regular doctor. I go to a team of docs here at the Cleveland Clinic, so which ever one is available will see me. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan> figures that I had to see a brand new young doctor. Even though my symptoms were classic GB, he told me I had gastran style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan>is, and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan> can last an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> a few weeks. He did order an ultrasound, though.

Avatar_m_tn the doctor said they needed to do a urine test, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan> could be a bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> but they would also test an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> chlamydia and gonorrhea. she said since i am in a monogamous relationship an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan>'s probably not an std. i don't think i've had these symptoms bean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>e but they're mild so i'm worried that i may have overlooked them. just wondering if symptoms of these two stds can come and go? can the symptoms appear years after being infected?
Avatar_n_tn Your symp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>ms of urinary frequency and urgency highly suggests an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. a urine test will confirm this and treatment is usually wan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan>h antibiotics. Drinking plenty of water may also help. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean> care and do keep us posted.
Avatar_m_tn This has helped, but the problems have not completely gone away. I suspect that this may be a kidney or bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. The other possibilan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan>y is that I have chlamydia from what I have read online. I have had a few partners since I last got tested, so an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan> is possible that one of them passed something aan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>longan>. I should mention I experienced similar symptoms back around October. I went to see my doctor and there was no sign of bacteria in my urine.
Avatar_n_tn Thank you to all who responded. I am okay wan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan>h this.

Avatar_m_tn easy to Rx but now can't do the RX. I was at a 2 inflammation and a 3-4 fibrosis on my liver biopsy l<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>st year. Have no idea right now where I'm at. One thing about Hep C in my opnion is that an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan> is an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan> is the expect the unexpected disease. Since an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan> is outdoing HIV 4 to 1 and still not that much know to the general public the next 10 years will be interesting.

470162_tn?1285755313 I am almost 100% sure that I don't have a bladder infection as I had a urine sample an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>takean>n a few days prior to this and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itan> came back clear.
