Feb- treated for a bladder infection diagnosed by dipstick- blood in urine, protein and white cells- can't remember if doc said nitrates-never cultured- took bactrim and azo for 3 days felt better on 4th day (retested 3rd day still had symptoms urine culture neg.)
Off and on i worried that it was coming back. Would have frequency but eventually cleared up. Must add I was drinking up to 100 oz of water a day and lots of coffee.
Yeast infection from antibiotics that wouldn't clear up took clotrimazole for about 10 days then developed some swelling. Doc said very tight pelvic floor muscles and spasming referred me to physical therapist.
Had first physical therapy session with lots of massage and next day felt like i had to pee constantly. This was on a Saturday. Went away in a few hours. Sat night/sun/monday had sex with no problems. Monday at 3am woke up and had to pee several times. Tuesday thought I had a uti. Tested negative. Feeling like i have had to pee for over one week now. No pain just urge to pee. Gyno said it could be because of my pelvic floor spasms.
Did a bladder diary for two days for urogyno. Sent to urogyno and regular gyno. Both said diary looked normal. That I drink way too much fluids and they could affect my cultures. That I need to cut back on a glass a day until Im under 50oz of fluids and then give another urine sample before moving on. That my bladder could just be taking time to heal from the UTI in feb. and that my over drinking could be taxing my kidneys. This relaxed me a bit and for the two days following convo with Dr. my symptoms went away. Then they came back. (only huge diff was I had a frappacino)
and I have major anxiety and I'm afraid of bladder cancer (occasional black specks in urine) and ic. equally. I'm wondering if it's all in my head. I don't really know what to do. I took a vicodin last night and the urge to pee went away/ Came back this am tho.
Does this sound like IC? Bladder cancer? Pelvic floor caused? Something else? Please help me I'm desperate.
