I'm a 40 y o female not on birth control and no std's. This started about 3 mos ago when I started having very low abdomen (bladder) discomfort and burning After urination. I have always had burning off and in and usually just drink cranberry juice and Alka seltzer and it passes. I've tested positive for UTIS 3x when pregnant but didn't feel any symptoms. So this has really been the worst symptoms I've ever had. So I go to the walk in clinic and she tests my urine there and says it's clear but gives me Bactrim and sends in culture. Bactrim seems to help a bit but not completely. Get back culture results and it says I have "unnamed bacteria". So I get more Bactrim but Still symptoms linger. I try natural things like D mannose, uva ursa, to no avail. So a month later I go back to a dr. They test my urine in office and he says yes you have bacteria and gives me Cipro 1 week. It seems to be working, the bloating and discomfort go away and the burning is mostly better. But day 7 comes around, I'm starting to feel burning again. PLUS the dr office calls and they say my culture came back CLEAR. How could this be when they said in the office I had bacteria? I ask the lady that called this and she gives me a weird response like it could've been skin or something?? Well they won't give me more antibiotic because it's clear and I feel like it's not completely gone. I feel so frustrated and like not trusting any Dr. The only thing that seems to help a little is Cystex Plus and warm showers. I feel like either it's a minor uti that won't go away or I have cystitis ? But would antibiotic help then??
Thanks for any help and advice!
