Hi,thanks for query.Infection in bladder needs proper and long treatment.I hope you have gone for urine test .Please also go for ultrasound to have look for the cause.Some times some impacted stone can lead to persistence of infection.Please also ask your doctor about urine culture and sensitivity test.This helps in identifying the causative organism and medicine that is effective against it.Please take medicines as advised.You can take help from a urologist in this case.bye.

hi
welcome to healthcare magic
your suffering from honeymoon cystitis.women who is sexually active are more prone to get urinary tract infection.its better you avoid intercourse till your infection subsides.
drink plenty of water and avoid holding urge for urination.
maintain hygiene.
urinate before and after intercourse.
antibiotics will help you out from infection.but if your having recurrent urinary infection than i suggest to consult homeopath will permanently cure your condition.
i hope my answer will be useful to you

Now they put me on MACROBID 100 MG and instructed take @ times a day with food. I took first pill about 3 hours ago within an hour i started having body aches lungs felt tight when i breathed in deep it burnt and i would cough like i had run really fast in a really cold windchill. About half an hour after body aches then sharp pains in back right side below rib cage. Now wanna be sure not reaction to this antibiotic, as i have never been on this one.

Hi,I am a male having constant urethra pain, which has built up over the course of a week. And is now suddenly constant, I.e. Not when urinating.My partner is prone to bladder infections, and is recently had to embark on another course of antibiotics.This will be the first time that any such infection may have been passed to me after 18 months of regular sexual activity. Is this in fact a common occurrence, and likely that a UTI has been passed on to myself ?

My name is Lindsey. I m 21 going on 22 years old and weigh abou 230 lbs. at 5 ft. tall. I had kidney reflux as a child and so did my sister, and cousin. I have a family history of kidney problems. My aunt has kidney disease, my grandma just had a non cancerous tumor removed from her bladder and my mother found that she has blood in her urine. My question is that some days I have to urinate very frequently, but most days its just normal. I have noticed for a while that after I urinate and empty my bladder I feel like my bladder is empty and i m done urinating, however I can sit right back down on the toilet after being done or a minute later and have a few more drops of urine that I need to get out. There has also been a few times when I go to urinate and have to go very badly that I will sit down to urinate and its like there is a hesitation to at first like it won t come out for a second or two then it finally will. I will also add that I never have burning when urinating. I also have pitted edema on both of my lower legs its just a little worse on one side than the other, but it s not in my feet or ankles. So is this all normal or should I see a urologist?
