Hi I hate to bring this to light in a sense as the mere thought of it leaves me tearing my hair out, quite literally. Seven weeks ago, I developed a uti, but think it may have been going on, whatever was wrong for a long time before that, as I had very occasional sharp itching, and partial incontinence for a while now. However I felt unwell and had pink staining, which I googled and found is blood, and a discharge and unpleasant dampness and was up in the night every two hours needing to pee.
I went to see my GP, and he put me on a course of anti biotics, saying it was a urinary tract infection, and that was supposed to clear it up, it didn't. I went back to see the duty doctor, alarmed by now as delays with clearing these things up can lead to problems with the kidneys, the last thing I needed, he put me on another course and took a sample, I still had the bleeding and the discharge and frequent peeing but they told me over the phone it had cleared up.
Obviously this was not the case from my symptoms so back I went and doc examined me this time and found thrush, so I was put on a short course of canesten, but after that I was still experiencing the pink stains and the discharge had got worse and peeing every two hours at night.
I really am at "tearing my hair out" level now as its been seven weeks of it, three lots of treatment have been tried and the swabs the doc took were apparently normal.
What on earth is up with me? I'm going back to see my GP on the 8th Jan and will say look doctor if you have no answers for me as to what this might be and why it refuses to be seen off then can I see a specialist.
As I say, delays with cures can lead to issues with the kidneys and meanwhile something inside me is bleeding and I feel I have a right to know what exactly that is. Its the waiting that's the worst bit, I find, with Xmas and the New year getting an appointment and the delays with them trying courses of treatment which have evidently done nothing whatsoever to cure it, whatever it is.
