i'll try and keep this brief but im very interested if anyone has ever been through this or knows what could be up...
in october 2010 i started experiencing urinary frequency (no pain or burning) and had some brown discoloration appear on either side on the head of my penis,just little patch each side.
so went to GP, suspected water infection, did urine test (sent off to lab) and dipstick test and nothing found..blood test showed slightly abnormal kidneys..had ultrasound and kidneys showing fine (never experienced any problems with them)
november 12th, went to health centre to give sample for chlamydia...positive on 19th, took the antibiotics (4 tabs in one go) for the next few hours and few days felt like i was returning to normal until urinary symptoms started to creep back in and wernt as strong...
december 3rd went to GUM clinic, traces of urethritis found,given antibiotics metronidazole for 5 days, felt a bit relief but not totally gone,still getting the urinary symptoms.. so went back to gum clinic, they took swabs to check for urethritis....none found..retested for chlamydia and that was negative but still left me wondering whats going.. was tested for HIV and syph which was negative (last sexual encounter before this was june 16th, foolishly unprotected)
anyway i went to my kidney specialist for follow up appointment,told him about the infections that i had an that they have been treated, he agreed that these infections have more than likely interfered with the kidneys and made them slightly abnormal on a blood test but chlamydia isnt known to cause damage to them.
so after that i had my blood taken again,no idea what he is checking for with those... then said he needed to take 2 urine samples and that its possible i could have a UTI now. when he asked the nurse to get the urine bottles i heard him say ' i need 2 as one for NSU ' what would he be checking for in that sample and one of the bottles had ' Urea ' wrote on it, which prompted the subject of this thread..
just to note i potentially had these infections inside of me for 5/6 months before they were treated and gone.
my symptom now is how fast i feel urine in my urethra after coming back from the toilet, like it could be 30,45,60 mins or even 1 hour and a half until i get this feeling and when i do its accompanied roundabout the same time by a kind of warm sensation/pressure type feeling like the urine is building...
sorry this was long, few questions too
1. there has definitly got to be some sort of bacteria inside causing trouble still?
2. is it possible that Ureaplasm is causing this? (i read one of the symptoms it can give is urinary frequency)
3. given the fact ive had urethritis and chlamydia is there any other bacteria that hasnt been tested for which could be causing the problems?
i appreciate any answers
