I am experiencing bladder infection (uti). Frequent urge to urinate, sometimes I can barely make it to the bathroom. First thing in the morning, my urine doesn’t smell pleasant. I’ve had a UTI before, not sure if it was treated properly.

Get re-examined/UTI: You need to obtain a follow up examination for a urinary tract infection which will include a urine culture and sensitivity to determine the identity of the bacteria present and the best(sensitive not resistant) antibiotics to treat the same. ...Read more

I'm on nitrofurantoin for a bladder infection since Wed and am not getting better. I have severe lower back pain, nausea, vomited once, frequent urination without bladder sensitivity, headaches, full body pain/sensitivity/tenderness, tingling in my feet a

Consider the ER: if nitrofurantoin were going to work for you, I would think that you should have some improvement by now. It may be that the bacteria causing your UTI are not sensitive to that antibiotic. If your lower back pain is that severe, I would consider calling your doctor or going to the emergency room. Good luck. ...Read more

Here ares some...: Glad to know you've been tested to be (-) for UTI. It's useful to know if the burning has been consistent or sporadically, severe & unbearable, or mild and tolerable-just occasionally annoying, If mild & sporadic, look into if the burning is related with lifestyle in oral consumption or sex-related acts such as sex-enhancing creams or stools or "violent" acts.

I would like to ask you from a medical standpoint some of the reasons why cystitis or bladder infections/inability to urinate or urinary retention continue to occur in a 33 year old female. my kidneys have been checked and my bowel quite completely. Yet,

There is a : Condition called interstitial cystitis where u have inflammation of the bladder wall and symptoms present just like a chronic UTI. Urine retention and urinary tract infections can also be caused by abnormal pathology of the urethra or ureter at the point of entering the bladder (ureterovesicular junction or UVJ) which will promote UTIs. U need a cystoscopy from a Urologist to diagnose and treat. ...Read more

Ive had white dead skin looking floaties in my urine for weeks. Alot! I get silent bladder infections too. Could this be a sign of a bladder infection?

Ive had white dead skin looking floaties in my urine for weeks. Alot! I get silent bladder infections too. Could this be a sign of a bladder infection?

May be normal...: Before further use of antibiotics, make sure to get urinalysis (UA) with/without urine culture. If being free of UTI symptoms and having no WBC or RBC in UA, most likely, cloudy urine could be normal in alkaline urine with PH>6.5, resulting from the presence of amorphous phosphate crystals, which commonly seen in vegetarians. Ask Doc for more detail.... ...Read more

Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits.
