Hi, I have had UTI like symptoms for 5 years. I have had many, many cultures - all neg. I have also had a bladder ultrasound - again normal, I have tried creams for dermatitis etc. I just read recently that Latent TB can show symptoms of a UTI - 5 years ago - when symptoms first appeared, I was working in an orphanage in Central Asia (ex-soviet state) when drug resistant TB was rife and visiting children regularly in a TB hospital, so I have definitely been exposed. I had terrible pneumonia last year which took a long time to diagnose, and for a while they suspected TB but it didn t show up in my lungs. Could it still possible cause for my UTI - is it worth getting checked?

What will be the reason of this?. Active Pulmonoray TB not there, but will it be Miliary TB symptom or Amoebic Liver Abscess or anything else?? Please advice me for the next step
