Ibuprofen and urinary tract infections

Common Questions and Answers about Ibuprofen and urinary tract infections


Avatar n tn Hello! With urinary tract infections she might have generalized fever and body aches and this may be related. But the pain specifically if it continues beyond couple of days in a specific area needs attention. She may have fallen down, twisted her leg or any trauma so you take a proper history to come to the reason of the ankle pain. Use some ice packs and also give her some ibuprofen and if it does not cure her problem she has to be taken to the physician for an X-ray and follow up.
Avatar n tn Just over three weeks ago I began experiencing burning in my urinary tract. I thought it would go away, but it persisted and got worse over the next few days. I went to a doctor, and they of course thought it might be an std. They gave me a 'cocktail' of antibiotics, as well as running urine and blood test. A few days later it got very extreme, painful and burning. I went back to see a Dr and he had the test back... normal.
Avatar m tn A complete physical examination by a urologist will be able to help. A urinalysis may be able to rule out infections in the urinary tract. Just prevent manipulation of the area as this may cause injuries and aggravate the pain. Wear cotton clothes and wash the area well. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn The common causes are infections in the bladder or prostate, inflammations of the kidney, stones in the bladder or elsewhere in the urinary tract and tumours of the urinary tract like warts, benign growths and cancers. For kidney pain you may take a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug such as ibuprofen or naproxen .Few doctors also recommend Tamsulosin to speed the passage of stones.
Avatar f tn I started seeing my doctor as well as in urgent care clinic doctors in February of this year, where I was treated for the most obvious problem (urinary tract infections), but even after 4 - 5 doctor appts. no one referred me for additional testing to find out the real cause of the problem until the end of Sept. I had alot of pelvic pain, but no one prescribed pain medication. Had alot of testing at the end of Sept.

It may be that your son has a viral infection and is not showing many signs of infection, or they may develop over the next several days. If he is in school or camp, he is likely exposed to a lot of kids harboring viruses! You may be wondering if you should treat his fever.
Avatar n tn I started having all kinds of issues such as yeast infections and constant itching and severe burning even when the infection was gone. Within 2 weeks of starting this pill my energy level, motivation and spirit hit rock bottom. I had never been so depressed in my life. I think I cried for a couple weeks strait which didn't make any sense because things in my life were great at the time. Being on this pill was a disaster for me and my relationship.
Avatar f tn Disorders of the spleen and colon could also cause pain. The other causes for pain could be urinary tract infection, renal colic and sometimes bowel infections. It could also be due to diverticulitis, Chron's disease, ulcerative colitis and parasitic infections. If it persists consult your doctor for an evaluation. In the meantime you can take OTC Ibuprofen pain medication. Ensure to take this medication after food to avoid gastritis. Regards.
Avatar n tn i last posted on this thread in may....i have had a few years of this suffering and no end of examinations for the doctors to find nothing wrong...after a lot of investigations on the net by myself i found the info i needed and went to my doctor to ask if i have VAGINAL ATROPHY and she said yes...at last a diagnosis..she wanted me to go and have an investigation at the hospital and i said no way as ive been poked and prodded for months and i have had enough...
Avatar n tn She tried steroids, but they only helped a little but made her get urinary tract infections that were extreme and miserable. We are going to try an elimination diet next. She did use acne meds around the onset of these symptoms. I am not sure which ones. I will definitely look into THAT!
Avatar m tn He can order labs on you to determine your kidney function. You don't mention any urination pain, or urinary frequency, so it's not likely a urinary tract infection (unless you have those symptoms as well), but instead may be entirely related to your overdosing on Ibuprofen! PLEASE go to your ER if you can't get in to see your PCP tomorrow.
Avatar m tn Check out 'UTI' - urinary tract infections - I have experienced these and the back pain is unbelievable! Get a urine sample to the doc for investigation.
5559066 tn?1369870350 I cant take the deep chronic pain in my joints and through out my body but mostly on my right side. I feel like I am dying sometime. the doctors cant tell me anything. when I was admitted into ICU the middle of april they said there was a poison in my body, my potassium was low and so was my white blood cell count. the last time I was in the hospital my blood work said low potassium, low white blood cell count and positive for a intestinal parasite.
Avatar n tn You didn't mention any other symptoms, but one way you can get a kidney infection is from having a urinary tract infection. Constant and strong urge to urinate with little to no urine passing and when it does, it burns. Please go seek medical attention as soon as possible. You are past the stage of effective home remedies.
Avatar n tn Pulmonary disease (eg, hypoxia) Other abnormal systemic metabolic conditions such as hepatic or renal dysfunction Endocrine disorders such as thyroid or adrenal hypofunction or hyperfunction Ingestion of toxins or side effects of single or multiple interacting medications or withdrawal from alcohol or drugs Electrolyte imbalances, especially abnormalities in sodium, BUN, creatinine, glucose, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus Nutritional deficiencies such as thiamine, cobalamin, or niacin
Avatar f tn The treatment for kidney stones depends on their size and what they are made of and also if they are causing pain or obstructing the urinary tract. Small stones usually pass through the urinary tract without treatment. It is good advice to stay well hydrated as that should prevent the stones from getting any bigger or new ones from forming. For kidney pain you may take a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug such as ibuprofen or naproxen .
Avatar n tn My doctor also said the pain in my lower back when I run might be due to sciatica - swelling of a major nerve that runs from the lower back into the leg. He told me to take ibuprofen after my workouts if it still bothered me, and I've been doing that off and on. But still, most of the time when I run, I continue to get the dull ache and it usually develops into tenderness in one or both of the testicles. It doesn't matter whether I wear breifs, boxer-briefs, or boxers.
Avatar f tn If the symptoms are severe then it will be best to consult a doctor and get urinary tract infection and infections like vaginitis ruled out. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar n tn Since about the age of 25 and currently at 44, I have had many bouts with prostatitis, kidney infections, epiditimitis, and orchitis. Just recently I found out that I have a fistula (hole) in my prostate and rectum. Currently pain can be so bad that I can't function. I'm not suggesting that you might have a fistula, since the pain now is far worse that what I used to have about a year ago.
Avatar n tn I have stenosis of the spine and the c's and l's are not what they should be, i guess what i am doing is venting and perhaps other people can recognize some of these symtoms, mother died of brain tumors at 43 father alive but has congestive heart failure, dementia, diabetes, colon cancer, was a nurse aide for 7 years and ruined my back and get so tired, forgetful, weak and frightened and take a variety of medications for high blood pressure and high colestrol and anxiety, nothing for pain, as D
Avatar n tn They only last a few seconds. The build and peak like labor pains. Say I'm in the kitchen and I'll feel it coming on so I have time to brace myself. I'll set down whatever it is i'm holding and get ready. I have to cross my legs, bend my knees, hold on to something, clench my body tight, and try to breathe. Thank God it only lasts a few seconds. My 14 yr. old son witnessed it yesterday and tried to call 911. I kept signaling him not to. I knew it wouldn't last long. My gyno.
Avatar f tn Went to urgent care and as it turns out I don't have a yeast infection at all it is a herpes flair up and a Urinary Tract Infection. Got sent home with scripts for lidocain ointment for pain, bacterum for the UTI, valtrex for the herpes and ibuprofen so I can sleep at night and it should clear up quickly. Glad I saw the doctor and thankfully they have a payment plan but the scripts are going to cost almost $200. $100 of that for the lidocain ointment alone.

Avatar m tn Most often it is related to urinary tract problems like kidney stones, inflammation of urinary tract, infections of the urinary tract, prostate enlargement, renal vein thrombosis, certain kidney tumors and polycystic kidney disease, blood coagulation disorders and anticoagulants. It does not seem to be related to testicular infections causing orchitis. I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep us posted on how you are doing. Kind regards.
Avatar f tn urinary tract infections) so we stopped having sex. Well 2 days ago I go to sit down and got a sharp pain from my vagina so intense I had to check it out, so I looked and could see a bump/lump right on the inside of the vaginal entrance. There is no rash or redness around this area just the bump/lump. I also have a slight bleeding as if I am starting my period but is very light. However, it is NOWHERE near time for my next cycle. Could it just be swelling from the rough intercourse?
Avatar m tn The dripping after urinating is something that often occurs as we get older and is not related to a urinary tract infections. You may have to wait a few seconds longer at the urinal or consider taking a medication such as Uroxatral for the rest of your life to try and control this. If you have had scrotal trauma to initiate this whole chain of events, then the issue may be strictly one of persistent inflammation, but then why did the antibiotic work at all? Talk further with your urologist. S.
Avatar n tn i had sex twice and everything was ok, and after the third time the problems began. my partner and i had hard sex and my penis hurt a bit when she was on top of me. i urinated a few minutes after ejaculating and blood came out along with a very big blood clot at the end. i had sexual intercourse about 7 or 8 times before seeing a doctor. the same occurred except for 2 times, in which no blood appeared.
