I have experienced 4 urinary tract infections in past 6

Customer Question

I have experienced 4 urinary tract infections in past 6 months and I have not feel the symptoms at all. And approximately 3 weeks ago, I start to have excessive night sweat, chill, muscle spasm. Then I am easy to get tired and being fatigue and having short breathe with headache everyday. At the mean time, I always feel the itchiness all over my body, I washed my sheet and stuffs every week and it is still troubling me. 4 days ago, I discovered couple bruises on my legs, and I'm sure I have not been injured. The bruises keep getting more and more. I just want to know what is wrong with me.

I am sorry you are having these symptoms

some urinary tract infections don't cause symptoms.

you need to get blood test to check for abnormal thyroid hormone levels

abnormal thyroid hormone levels can cause dry itchy skin.

and also to check for autoimmune disorders with blood tests to check for ANA, ESR, C reactive protein, anti ds DNA antibodies and Creatinine Phosphokinase to check for inflammation of your muscles.

autoimmune conditions can cause itchy skin.

you need CBC complete blood counts and coagulation blood tests to check your platelets and blood clotting ability.

yous should get blood test to check for mononucleosis viral infection which can cause fatigue and sweats.

you should get vitamin D and B12 and iron and ferritin levels checked as well.

have you had these tests so far?

do you have a doctor you can see who can check for these issues?
