I'm not sure where i should post this topic so if anyone would like to redirect me thats fine
For about a yr now ive noticed that every time i begin to use tanning beds again, a couple days later i usually develop a bladder/kidney infection that get worse and worse. Now when i say i use tanning beds i mean once or twice a week no more then 10 minutes each session, and the past couple times i have attempted tanning - once or twice is all i last until im incredibly ill (and im not at all red, burt, or have any kind of skin rash)
This past sept after college started back up i thought id start to tan again (i guess to maintain my "summer glow") ... i know i know why would i try it again when i already had an idea it would make me sick??.. but all summer long ive been in the sun, at the beach, a ton of tests were run on me to do with my kidneys and everything turned out perfect - clean slate of health and no other medical conditions ... so i thought it was all in my head
i went tanning maybe 3 times MAX and i was bedridden with a bad bladder infection/possible kidney infection for 2 weeks! this was 2 weeks of constant nauseousness, dry heaving etc.. i was put on CIPRO and after a good 2 weeks i was better.
NOW... again thinking i was crazy to assume tanning beds make me so sick (i have yet to see any links online or heard from any doctors that tanning beds CAN cause these symptoms) I went tanning for the first time since septemeber yesterday and was fine all day - felt perfectly fine when i went to bed - and no one else in my family is sick, now this morning i wake up at 4am with the spins, sweating, dirreaha, and SUCH nausea and dry heaving and all in all feeling like i have in the past....
So i don't know guys, i'm at a loss, i feel crazy seeing all my friends tan and have NONE of these symptoms ... i feel like my body gets poisioned ... or something... is it at all possible? has ANYONE else heard of this??
Pleas please any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
