UTI lasting ages.....

Hello, I first had symptoms of a UTI about 3 weeks ago ish, and I had my wee tested and took a course of trimethoprim. I had another test after I had finished the course and the infection was still there, I am now taking a course of co amoxiclav and have 2 days worth left.

I'm so fed up though - I have no stomach pain or anything anymore and not really any pain or burning when urinaring - but I have that constant feeling like I need to pee all the time. I pee then 10 minutes later get that feeling that I need to go again, when I don't.

I spent the whole day shopping today and had the feeling the whole time, but didn't feel like k actually needed to go to the toilet. It's driving me insane, especially at night when I try to sleep. I don't get why I still have this! I've nearly finished my course of antibiotics so surely it should have cleared up by now sad

    I had it 3 weeks ago too and had antibiotics. A urine test this week shows blood in my urine, so anothe urine test next week to see if it's cleared. Seems like we need to check out if it's cleared as the pain of having a reoccurrence is too much to bear!

    Me too...so your not alone...thats 2 more of us.

    I think it is important to stay on the antibiotics even when we are feeling better and to drink MORE WATER....also, I was told to drink cranberry juice and I don't.

    My thoughts were..I don't want to drink MORE....then I will have to pee more...but it is supposed to flush it out...and make our urinary tract more healthy.

      Thank you! I have been terrible at drinking lots of water to be honest, I just don't which is stupid of me!! I drank LOADS of water for like 3 days when it first started and it really helped.

      Once I've finished my anti biotics I'll have another test and go from there! It's nice to know I am not alone smile

      I am on day 5 too.. Most symptoms have gone apart from the really annoying feeling of needing to pee all the time.

      I'll drink lots and hopefully it will clear up soon!

      In contrast you should be happy that the infection is less than before 

      you should be greatful in my condition i feel stabbing pain in my back 

      it hurts so bad i'm starting to feel joint pain and now I'm having side effects from the medication 

      as I said it's a long way process clear yourself up from the infection drink plenty of water finish your medication you'll be fine especially that you're seeing recovery 

      and wish me luck cos i'm depressed from this

      i was retested last week and still,had blood in my urine. The. Nurse suggested it may be the aftermath of the infection. Full,recovery does take time.

      yes it does take time but the pain is the worst thing human can live with and i just hate the pain i've also started being paranoid about linking my symptoms to even worst diseases it's driving me crazy and im afraid i won't be able to get back to work again 

      thanks and good luck to u too
