Bladder infection or something else?

Posted , 1 user is following.


Four weeks ago I got stuck in motorway traffic and was desperate to go to toilet for an hour.

Since then i have had pressure, constant urinating and clear urine, no stinging or burning when going.

Saw a doctor last monday who said thought it was a uti as a small trace of something showed in my urine. He wanted to give me fosfomycin. I declined as I am so sensitive to lots of medication. I explained I can only take amoxicillin or Augmentin. I haven’t taken Augmentin for many years. When I got home, read up about Augmentin and was a little worried about taking it again after all this time, so I had a course of amoxicillin 500mg at home which my GP kindly lets me keep for my chronic sign infections.

I finished the amoxicillin yesterday and it hasn’t improved. What I don’t understand is, if I take some ibuprofen, it does calm the feeling in my bladder down. Do I now be brave and take the Augmentin to see if that helps?

This doesn’t sound like normal cystitis to me.

Any advice would really be appreciated. Thank you
