I wrote a post a while ago about my problems following a urine infection. I had a standard UTI/ cystitis bout at the end of April. Antibiotics helped some symptoms (burning) but some remained & now I’m left with pressure on bladder, frequent urination & sometimes a bit of incontinence (very mild I wear a panty liner because I’m paranoid). I had an appointment with a registrar urologist & he did an internal examination & noticed that I had the pressure and pain when I pressed near my bladder. He said that it seems like IC which could have been triggered by the original infection. I’ve always had decaf tea, but before I got the infection, for a few months prior I started drinking caffeine again. I don’t know if this may have irritated my lining, then with an infection on top, irritated everything.
The registrar suggested trying D mannose as this helps 1 in 4 people apparently! Just wondered if anyone has had similar experiences? I forgot to mention about the incontiennce & overactive bladder feeling in my appointment because I felt anxious but I also think I could benefit from bladder retraining!
