- Okay, so I just started my period -- 2 weeks late! I recently had a UTI and took antibiotics for it. Don't know whether the UTI or antibiotics made my period late, but it's here now! You probably already know at this point, but I hope this ...

- The left side of my lower back HURTS--Kidneys?
- Q: I have experienced intense bladder infections since I was 2-4 years old. (I am 22 now). And have since undergone an array of treatments, procedures, medications, and eating habit changes to try and correct the problem, however here I am 20 years later experiencing the same pain on an almost daily basis and getting no straight answer from my Urologist/Doctor/Specialist....etc..etc...It's very frustrating, to feel pain and not know what's causing it. I was emitted into the ER December 07 for a kidney infection due to such bladder infections. I have had all kinds of nitty gritty things done to try and get to the bottom of the problem since then and even STILL, nothing. I was told about 3 months ago, however that what I may have is called, "Interstitial Cystitis" which cannot be treated by antibiotics, in fact I was told that in certain situations they can make it worse! Which would make sense since none of them have worked for me my entire life and the problem HAS gotten worse. The symptoms alone of Interstitial Cystitis can be treated until they get to the root of this newer problem. My most recent was to change my eating habits drastically. Which I did, and had some relief for about 4 to 5 days and then it bounced right back. The pain has been especially intense since than and the past few days my lower left back has began to hurt. At first I figured it was associated with my menstrual cycle until it it became more of a constant throbbing and has only gotten worse since it began. I saw my doctor today, who referred me back over to my urologist. They wouldn't see my same day so I have to wait with this pain until tomorrow. I undertand that these things aren't cured over night but I cannot live my life day to day with this pain keeping me from even thinking clearly. It's ridiculous. Has anyone else experience anything similar? Or can anyone offer my some sort of advice on my next move after I see this Doctor tomorrow?Thank you, thank you! :)
- A: I am going through a similar situation. I've been ill for a long time and have yet to get any answerer's and continue to suffer in pain every day, so I can Absolutely sympathize with you. When you go to your doctor tomorrow, be more demanding. Insist that this pain is interrupting your life and you need to get to the bottom of it. You have to be your own advocate when it comes to your health. You can no longer wait for a doctor to figure out what's wrong with you. Begin to do your own research. Look on the internet, talk with family and friends, get second opinions from different doctors. Visit a new urologist who may have a different perspective.Watch shows like The Doctors (on CBS) and Mystery Diagnosis (TLC/Discovery Health Channel). The reason I say to watch those shows because there is another person out there with your symptoms who has been diagnosed and their stories may help you find an answer. I caught an episode of Mystery Diagnosis and it led me to a diagnosis I would have never thought of have I not seen the show. Just don't give up. Keep being persistent and keep an open mind. Have you ever considered seeing a Rhuematologist? There is a disorder called spinal arthritis, which pain in the lower back is the main symptom. A disorder of the spine can affect different areas of the body. I say it's worth looking in to.
- what can cause severe urinary tract pain besides a UTI?
- Q: i've been dealing with this problem for almost a year.here's a little history about what's going on:it initially started with a uti. took antibiotics, it went away. not even a few weeks later, i got another one. i've had so many and taken so many antibiotics in the last 8 or 9 months i've lost count.i assumed that every time i felt that pain, it was a uti.i went to the ER one time because i feared the infection was moving into my kidneys. they tested my urine and found no signs of infection. they told me they wouldn't have even thought i had an infection if i didn't tell them.all of this goes on for what feels like forever.i had an ultrasound on my bladder and kidney's done to try and see if i had kidney stones or something wrong with my kidney's. nothing.by now, i wouldn't say i was "used" to the pain but it wasn't out of the ordinary for me to be doubled over in pain every time this bothered me.so therefore, every time i felt the same pain after, i assumed it was just pain, no infection. shortly after that i got so sick i had to go to the er again, and this time i had a kidney infection.so what, how do i live without being able to tell what's a uti and what's not? i can't always go to the doctor for this for the rest of my life.so what i guess i really want to know is what other things can cause these "recurrent uti's" and just general urinary pain?i also notice that this "flares up" especially around my menstrual cycle and it really gives me hell.it's so painful.please don't tell me to drink more water, cranberry juice, take cranberry pills, etc.believe me, i've done it ALL.that along with the "wipe from front to back" and "urinate after sex" deal, so please don't try to school me on that, i already know.negative for sexually transmitted diseases. had the same partner for over a year [and i know for sure he's been with only me this whole time]he's negative for everything as well
