Hi there,


I am Mysticdoc, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.


I am here to help you with your concerns.

Mysticdoc :

which part of the stomach you have the pain?

Mysticdoc :

Incontinence and burning pain still suggest the bladder infection commonly.

Customer:

the lower part

Mysticdoc :

Although urine test was negative initially, this should be checked again.

Mysticdoc :

and an antibiotic course like Bactrim should be tried.

Mysticdoc :

Besides infection, kidney stone can cause similar symptoms.

Mysticdoc :

An ultrasound of the kidneys will be helpful.

Customer:

Isn't there anything over the counter I can try

Mysticdoc :

yes you can

Mysticdoc :

Pyridium ( Azo) tablets will be helpful with the burning sensation.

Mysticdoc :

The dose is 100 mg twice daily up to 3 days.

Mysticdoc :

Also there is a over the counter product called Cystex

Mysticdoc :

This has both pyridium and methenamine.

Mysticdoc :

This can be used to treat UTI.

Mysticdoc :

However, it is better to discuss with your doctor and get a proper antibiotic.

Mysticdoc :

If cystex does not help, then prescription antibiotic should be considered and an ultrasound.
