Undiagnosed chronic urinary discomfort

Posted , 5 users are following.

Since last 3 years I had mild biting type pain on start of urination...stream also not very good... And at the end same strange feeling was there and afterwards for few minutes there used be a feeling of pressure, burning, ......I had to divert my mind as if I listen to my body n go again to pee then it would become more painful.

I thought its UTI which I got after my c-sec in 1998.  So I ignored it but whenever I got my urine test done it came negative,  . sometimes I used to get real very painful flare ups and used to subside after 2-3 hours, only trick was I had to divert my mind

    Hi shikha

    snap... I have exactly the same ...

    but mine was uti ... Just finishing some norfloxacin for mine 

    and now much better , i was like this all last weekend 😩

    also in the past i have had this and wasnt a UTI / Cystitis it was senstive bladder and the doc gave me oxybutynin tabs to use when the urge and pain arose ..

    it relaxed the bladder muscle and i use them when this pain comes..

    but on this occasion it was a uti/cystitis

    cranberry juice good for cystitus

    Thnx jay...I also lot of uti's which came in the reports but till 2006 . After that I was fine ..this trouble started in 2011.

    the day I start my antibiotic..I feel much better but again the next day things turn the same. But still tht strange pain is no more. But burning and pressure is there. Which also gets better after some time . This is all at uretheral level. Can that hormonal creams help. If anyone knows.😊 coz pm none of my doctor advised it yet.

      Hi 

      Horrible isnt it.. I get sensitive sometimes just like you say urethral tube ..

      And when weeing and straight after..

      I had my bladder checked with camera years ago .. Nothing wrong..

      Thats why they gave me those oxybutunin tabs they are great...

      My gyno a month ago suggested Ovestin Estriol for vaginal dryness that also keeps the bladder in check..

      But i am post menopause just and dont want hrt full .. This was a gentle alternative for me estriol is the kinder estrogen ..

      Theres also gynest estriol but i would talk to your doc about it .

      I shall only use half the amount and occasionally ..

    Hi shikha you have all my symptoms the burn after seeing which lasts hours and is more than wearing . I've had urine antibiotics and it stops it which is bliss but it returns. I think I've finally worked it out dry vagina affects the urinary tract as well so when you wee it burns your bits and hurts. I spray with a bottle of clean water after going for a wee and dry carefully . I've recently started inserting yES natural lubricant at night and it makes a huge difference. Look at the YES site and read the stuff on the water based vaginal lubricant. 

    You don't say if you are dry and uncomfy as well? As the burning

      hi shikha

      when did you last see a gyno .. And when did you las have a smear ?

      I have just finished norfloxacin for my bladder Uti ..

      all the discomfort has gone..

      last weekend i noticed the usual pain coming ..

      it was frequency in needing to wee mire than normal, my partner was home last weekend too and said.. Blimey you are at the loo alot..

      i also felt pain when weeing and after finishing then discomfort again when bladder filling..

      if you lay down and gently press the pubic bone ( just above ) and feel discomfort / pain you more likely have a UTI or if not a sensitive bladder..

      which mimics cystitis...

      Yes it affects the stream as well sometimes I have to count to ten to wee and it's almost like I'm pushing it out. Other times it's fine I drink loads of water that helps also a slice of lemon in the water helps

    Hi shikha

    I had constant urinary problems, had a cystoscopy and tests all fine. It stopped when I went on hrt. I know realise it was because the walls of the bladder and vagina get thinner during menopause. I always had that horrible pressure feeling and urinary tests always came back negative. I now use just gynest estriol cream and also actigel which helps prevent thrush and bv. I alternate these each day and havent had cystitus for 3 years now. I also drink a glass of cranberry each morning. I don't know why urologists and gynecologists seem so lacking in info and we have to help each other. Hope you feel better soon, let us know how you get on.

      Hi deb

      well said.. Thats exactly me in past ( but have had a uti just recently only due to my cystolyic vaginosis being untreated for 10 months and foind after a smear test) 

      yes post meno lack of estrogen does effect ..

      and yes i too have Ovestin estriol ... For occasional use when i am all better and had a little while to settle the vaginal Ph back to normal..

      along with premeno duo ovule ... From stress no more uk site..

      thats a vaginal moisturiser / prevent thrush ovule 

      Gynest similar to Ovestin it is Estriol 

      Gynest weaker.. 

      Glad you have found the perfect balance of treatment Deb 

      sounds promising 😊

    Sometimes when they do a cystoscopy they find you need your tube dilated which I also had done, it does stop that feeling of needing to wiat for ages to push the pee out.

    I find a teaspoon of bicarbinate of soda in a glass of water staves it off if I feel a type of cystitis burn coming on. Also I eat plain Greek yoghurt as it or any plain yoghurt supposed to balance gut bacteria. Hope this helps
