Re: UTI and IC
Hello. I was part of the original thread.
Basically, I had a series of UTI's that eventually triggered symptoms that didn't go away, didn't respond to antibiotics, and weren't caused by bacteria.
They went away after a few months by themselves.
I took an antibiotic after sex since that was my biggest symptom, and cranberry pills. This + less sex helped me to feel good for a while.
Well, I started having more sex and although I didn't get a UTI again (at least not one that showed up), the same thing is back. Urine culture negative, don't respond to Cipro.
At this point, I'm going to have my doctor check for structural abnormalities and mycoplasma. If it's not either of those, I'm going to ask to be put on Elavil or Elmiron. I was afraid of IC diagnosis because it's like a death sentence but at this point I just want the burning and the pain to go away.
