A good number of years ago now I was getting recurring UTIs along with cystitis. I was given antibiotics that seemed to clear it, only for it to return a few weeks later. This went on for almost a year and I was being referred to a specialist when one time my doctor gave me a double dose of antibiotics and it cleared it. So didn't need to go see the specialist.
In March 2015 I started getting really bad headaches and given antibiotics for a sinus infection. Shortly after that I started suffering really bad flare ups of nausea, softer, paler coloured bowel movements when i am feeling sick and i am really struggling to eat due to feeling so sick. This progressively got worse and I have been in hospital for lots of tests to look at my stomach all to which have been normal. I am still suffering to this day.
In July 2016 I took another UTI and was given antibiotics to clear it again. A week later I felt like it was coming back however it never did come a head.
I am still attending my doctors to find out the issue of the nausea and they recently took bloods and have told me that my cells that fight infection are lower than what they should be so I am needing the bloods redone (I think these are my white blood cells).
I have a urine dipstick at home and tested my urine. It is showing up: URO 2+, NIT+, LEU 2+, SG 1.025.
I do not have any pains when I pee or the urge to go. My urine can be quite dark in colour, very yellow, which I find strange as I drink a lot of water. Could I have an infection somewhere with these results on the dipstick? Also wondering if these flare ups of nausea etc that I am getting, if it is related to my kidneys, liver, bile ducts or something?! Anyone else had something similar? Help please!!
