I have a persistent UTI which isn't clearing up with antibiotics. I've had three courses of trimethoprim which relieves symptoms completely but the UTI returns within a week of finishing the course. Ive also had a course of Nitrofurantoin which did not relieve the symptoms and my GP put me back on trimethoprim again. I'm booked for an ultrasound scan and in a few weeks time but my GP said he doesn't know what to do next.
I've given three urine samples, the first showed growth, the last two showed no growth but there is still white cells and traces of blood.
My symptoms include urinary frequency, lower abdominal and pelvic pain, lower back pain, nausea and exhaustion. I feel very unwell.
I plan to make yet another appointment with my GP but what else can be done if the antibiotics aren't working? I started taking d-mannose yesterday but so far no relief.
