Around 3 months ago I developed symptoms of UTI, I was tested positive for nitrates and proteins.
I was put on a course of Nitrofurantoin
which worked, but I did not finish the course, the symptoms returned and the remaining pills did not clear the infection. I was prescribed Trimethoprim
, then told by a another GP I did not have a UTI as the culture came back negative. so i stopped the Trimethoprim.
I was referred to a urologist who claimed I have OAB. I was given a course of Vesicare 5mg, this medicine did not work, I was in agony one evening so I went to A&E (May be called ER in the US) I was told again I did have an infection and was given Doxycycline
for 1 week. I took this and it worked. Unfortunately the dose didn't seem to be long enough, symptoms returned, I booked in to see a urologist who prescribed me Ciprofloxacin.
This worked again, but took around 2-3 weeks, at around the 2 week mark i missed 3 doses as the shape of the tablets had changed and I took the wrong ones from my pill minder. I started taking them again but my symptoms have returned worse than ever. I am not worried that I've exhausted all antibiotics and have created an anti-bacterial resistant UTI.
I am in absolute agony, my testicles are in so much pain, my back hurts I have the constant urge to urinate (I can't) I feel reallly ill and I haven't eaten in 3 days.
Long story short.
Taken 4 types of antibiotics for UTI.
UTI not cleared, antibiotics stopped working.
In incredible pain, and discomfort.
Not testing positive for UTI any more.
