Really my bladder is the worse symptom for me. Since the hot weather its going nuts. I thought i had an infection again had one 7th July. Anyway i sent a test a few days ago, and the doctor rang and said that it showed leucocytes no infection no nitrates, but he was sending it off for culture and sensitivity. I would not hear back until Monday 29th. He also sent me up a 3 day script for Trimoprim (cant spell it). He said if the symptoms got worse to start taking it anyway. I got up next morning and I my bladder was in full spasm and was painful. i checked my own bladder as i have urinalysis sticks, and it showed leucocytes but no nitrates. I dont have temp just this urge to empty and when i do it feels weird I hate it like spasms or something low inside trying to push the urine down. It can take ages to void. I was up 4 times with it last night but when i do get going it is plenty lol as i have been drinking lots of water to try and keep hydrate and flush the bladder out. I do take a high strength cranberry everyday as well.
I am worried now as even on my antiobitics it doesnt seem to be calming down, which could mean if it is an infection the trimoprim has decided not to work. I have until tomorrow when i get results.
Not sure i can go another day like this. I am going to check my temp when i get up and my urine again. I have voided quite a bit so that is a good sign I think.
Its all come from the heat. I am exhausted and fed up of it. My uretha feels like it has been punched or razor blades in it.
I know lots of you get constant UTI how do you cope? Do you take anything else. I was told to try D manoose i think its called, but others i have spoke too said it was a waste of time.
I always drink a lot of water. but worried i will wash out too much sodium as i run low on that as a rule.
should i wait until tomorrow? although to be honest what can I do really today?
come on weather cool down please. I dont get why i have so many i am very clean. what makes it worse is i am also constipated 2 days.
i shall be glad to see the incontinece nurse but it isnt until 27th august.
