    Check that you haven't got a yeast infection as the symptons can be the same. If it is a yeast infection (Candida) the antibiotics will only feed it and keep you on a roller coaster.

      Thankyou MazzieJ

      I have had positive uninary tract lab result and waiting for a second test result.

      I've treated myself for thrush and taking cranberry tablets and 8 glasses of water a day so far I'm ok

      Fingers crossed.

    Good luck, I eventually got on top of mine by taking good probiotics twice a day
