Constant burning in the Urethra - Constant Water Infection Symptoms...HELP!

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi All,

Being a 22 year old Graduate with a reasonably new job, I am now feeling desperate to find out what is occuring with my body.

Since I was a young child, many of times I have visited doctors & hospitals with severe water infections...all proven to be just a water infection...However the past few years have lead me to a physical and emotional state...

Visiting MANY doctors, urologists, gynea & speaking to various people have not seemed to relive me of any pain.

Pain is constant burning in the urethra area, I have recently undergone a procedure - Urethral Dilation, as well as a Cystoscopy, X-Rays and scans...all came back okay. I have been tested at the doctors for all STIs, UTIs etc...again these all came back normal.

It is getting to the point where I hide my emotions out side of my home, but when I am alone, I can honestly say that I have never felt so drained, emotionally stressed and basically depressed.

I have read many of Forums, and people seem to be in the same situation as me...they are now 40 and have suffered from 20...I cannot put up with this constant burning and pain, it is ruining my life as a 22 year old...when I should be the happiest person.

Although my partner is the most caring and considerate guy, who is always there for me, I always feel guilty as sometimes the pain makes me slightly moody for no reason and can also restrict other things...

Someone has to have the answer to this, I have tried everything; tea tree oil, baking powder, non scented bathing, cranberry sachets, cranberry tablets, I am at my lowest...

It is the 21st Century, surely we should have an answer for this...

    Hi Sophie have you looked at intersisistial cystitus don't know if I've spelt that correctly but it's worth googling. Also this sounds yeuch but try drinking parsley and cornsilk tea it soothes the lining of the bladder it really helps I drink it three times a day to make the burning stay away.

      Hi Sophie herbal hands healing order from there it tastes yeuch so add a good squeeze of lemon. I drink it every day I let it go cold as I like it better than warm. Ask them if anything else soothes the bladder like marshmallow ( that's a herb as well) they answer questions. Post how you get in it might take a few days to work. Good luck

      Unfortunatley I'm still in the same position! Only the last two weeks have been even worse! I have yet again been to the doctors, but no questions answered. I have a check up after having a urethral dilatation in january as well as a cystoscopy, unfortunatley this did not aid my pain, not to say it won't heal others! I still drink the cornsilk and parsely tea, take cranberry tablets, dilute tea tree and dab it where the pain is at night...

      I now take those tablets in the morning to see if that will help. Ihave been diagnosed with likely urethral syndrom, which unfortunatley you have to manage! But it is taking its toll!

      Another posibility now is prostitius which can cause water infection symptoms.

      Any other help..,my ears are open!! I'm willing to try anyhing!

      Good luck with your cystoscopy!
