Question: I have been having extremely foul smelling urine, difficulty urinating, awful lower back pain and other symptoms. I have been treated twice with Clindamycin cream as my doc thought it was bacterial but I have not been sexually active for a long time. I am chronically tired and have been a chronic pain patient for many years due to a severe bone disease. All of my joints and back have been either fused or replaced. I use methadone and dilaudid for pain. I am starting to get sharp pains in my lower back bilaterrally. The smell when I urinate is so embarrassing when I have to use a friends bathroom. What could be wrong? The pain is becoming unbearable

Brief Answer:
urinary tract infection

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for the query.

Your symptoms clearly indicate bacterial infection of urinary tract. Due to bacteria presence in the urine you get back pain, foul smelling urine and burning while urinating.
Cream will not help with this issue. You need to have urine analysis and antibiotic (in tablets) treatment. You should also increase mineral water intake and start cranberries supplements.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.

My husband, Michael is 50yrs old,187lbs, 6' 2", caucasian male and is in good general health. He had surgery to remove his parathyroid glands 2 yrs ago in Tampa,Florida before we moved overseas here to Cyprus.He takes a Centrum Silver multi-vitamin and a Citracal Calcium Citrate+D3 twice a day. We eat wholegrains, eggwhites, legumes no real meat mostly fish. He does not drink or smoke. He does consume black coffee daily. He runs 5x a week 6-7miles each time, does calisthenics and lifts weights daily. He wears glasses for reading now. We are concerned about his bone density levels. He has just had a very bad month at the dentist. Can TMJ occur when your parathyroid glands are removed? What can we do to be sure he does not develop bone disease or osteoporosis? We read about the blood/urine lab tests and the DXA and VFA tests. Is there anything else we should know? Will doctors here in Cyprus know how to treat this? Which doctor should we see at this point, an endocrinologist or an Osteo doctor? Thanks!

I have had some serious joint and knee problems for years. I ve been through years of exercises, physical therapy , x-rays, MRI s, cortizone shots, and other stuff, nothing has helped. I ve been tested for arthritis , gout , pseudo-gout, muscle and bone diseases, and a vareity of other things but to no avail, my knees kept swelling to the size of my head without known cause. They feel like they are packed in sand and when this happens the quad muscles seem not to fire properly. I was a runner, a basketball player, and I was in the Army, all of which can be murder on the knees and doctors have just chalked my joint issues up to overuse or my current weight, which I did not gain until the knee problems occurred. Recently, upon tips from a friend with connective tissue issues, I have begun supplementing with magnesium and the pain seems to dissappear. Is there a reason for this? Should I trust this? I m afraid to try doing the things I used to do for fear of getting hurt again. Is magnesium a treatment for joint issues/connective tissue issues and could this have been my problem all along?
