Question: I am 25 years old man and healthy. From last 4-5 days i started to have the urge to urinate constantly, about every 15-20 minutes i would have to get up to use the washroom, but when i attempted to urinate i couldnt. While peeing For first time normal flow and then after that almost nothing comes out. Also there is little burning sensation at top of my penis all the time. it's not painful but uncomfortable. Color of the urine is normal. i don't see any other symptom. Please advise.

Hello,
Thank you for posting a query.

The symptoms you told indicates most probably presence of urine examination.
2.     Consult with a general physician first with the report or send it to me. If there is presence of infection, you should take some broad spectrum antibiotic like ciprofloxacin. Along with it, you should take an antispasmodic agent to reduce pain, if any.
3.     Take plenty of water.
4.     If the report indicates absence of infection but your symptoms are persistent, then you should consult a nephrologist.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more query.

Regards.

I've been diagnosed with streptococcus virdan. I've taken several medications such as levaquin, cipro, bactrim, doxycline and many more. The levaquin started working but I quit taking it because I felt better and now I've been having this problem for six years due to the fact I stopped taking my medication. About a year ago, a doctor did a semen culture and I was positive for virdan. He prescribed me penicillin and of course it didn't do anything. Do you have any suggestions of what I need to do because this has been and ongoing process forever

Hi

About 5 weeks ago I developed cystitis which I tried to get rid of myself by drinking plenty of fluids and cranberry juice. I couldn't get rid of it and was presribed trimethroprim for 3 days, this did nothing so I went to GP again on 4 day as I was vomiting and was unable to keep anything down by then. The GP prescribed Ciprofloxacin and painkillers but I couldn't keep these down either. By the following day my skin was a yellow colour and I was taken into hospital for 5 days and given Augumentum through a drip and the infection was the E-coli bacteria. I went home with 2 more days of antibiotics to take orally. I was still experiencing pain in the flank about 4 days after taking my last antibiotic so I called the Dr and blood test confirmed I still had the infection. I was given Augmentum for 7 days but 5 days after taking the last one I was still feeling bad. I was given Nitrofurdantoin on Friday to take 4 times a day but the pain seems to be getting worse. I am also anaemic and have been taking ferrous fulmurate since January. If I go back to the GP should I be asking to see a specialist?
