Unhappy UTI or Yeast causing bloating?

I am pretty sure I have a UTI that seems to be getting better with natural remedies (I had a urine culture sent out but its Friday so I won't know until Monday). However, I'm very bloated in my upper stomach area and gassy. Could that be from the UTI? Or could it be yeast from an infection I had and was treated for early last week with Diflucan? I've read yeast can grow in your intestines. I have no other yeast infection symptoms.
Anyone? Please help! So frustrated.

Re: UTI or Yeast causing bloating?

Bloating usually comes from your digestive system, and yes, it's very possible you have overgrowth of yeast in your intestines. This is common after taking antibiotics as both the bad and good bacteria are killed off, and this allows the yeast to go wild as no bacteria are around to keep it in check.

Best to eat yogurt and take probiotics to help with that, and avoid sugars and foods with sugars as yeast love sugar, causing them to multiply.

You can also get bloated from eating gassy foods or getting constipated, so eat lots of fiber (especially veggies), and drink a ton of water. Another possibility is a milk sensitivity/allergy, so if this doesn't resolve within a few days keep this in mind.

You should get relief from your bloating within a few days if you follow the above.

Re: UTI or Yeast causing bloating?

Thank you so much! I've been taking probiotics and drinking a ton of water for the other issue so it does help its mostly at night that it happens.
I'm also still dealing with the side effects from the Flagyl they gave me for another infection. Headaches, dizziness and blurred vision every day/night for the past week. When will it stop? I'm at my whit's end!
