Hi,

I have gone through your medical history carefully and am sorry for the situation you are in.

You are reporting to have a bad vaginal soreness including cystitis, and that was determined as non-bacterial.

This makes me think over possible:
- vaginal thrush (candida infection)
- diabetes
- hormonal changes at your age

If you were my patient, I'd advise to run:
- vaginal swab testing and culture to rule out candida thrush
- diabetes testing (fasting blood sugar, HbA1C)
- measure hormonal levels in the blood

in order to determine the right treatment. For the moment, I highly recommend to keep a good hygiene of your genitalia and to avoid foods/drinks high in carbohydrates.

Hope it was of help!
