Wondering if anyone can help me! As no doctors can!
It dates back to when I was little, I began having discomforts with certain citrus fruits and anything too processed. I would get a bit of discomfort down below. Then I started getting my period 2x a month, my mother took me to a doctor and they put me on a birth controll pill that evened this out for me. By this age I was slightly anemic so I was taking iron supplements as well as eating all the right things. I soon came off the pill as I was a conscious teenager and I felt I was putting on weight. Stuff seemed to settle down but I still had to stay away from the certain fruits and foods.
Now I am going on to be 20 in a few days and about 10 months a go a lot of things started flaring up. It started with lower abdominal pain and bloating. I started going out with my partner 10 months ago, he is completly STi free and has had no problems down in his department.
Anyway as I go on...
Then I got a series of what the doctors called 'urine infections' although I always new this was not the case. The anti-biotics would seem to help me for 2-3 days and then the pain would come back. My urine had no 'fishy odour' it didn't sting and the only pain I could describe it as was a 'contraction'.
I was now getting these 'infections' every 2 weeks. It was now starting to affect my studies, I was lying down on the floor gulping down 1 litre bottles of water trying to flush everything out my system. the only thing that would relieve me would be squatting or very hot water baths. I was also feeling feverish and extreme tiredness as well as back pain.
The pain went on and on for months until one day I woke up at 5 am and I had to make myself go to A n E. They did a urine test detected a very week UTI and gave me MORE antibiotics. I saw a doctor and he was concerned which triggered me into thinking something else could be the matter here.
I have been on every anti-biotic known to man literally. The doctor then said I needed to be STI tested-which I knew was again not the case as I have always been cautious with this area. I got tested for the last time and everything was NEGATIVE, no STI's no YEAST infections, NOTHING. and as I said my partner is clean and been tested recently again too.
The thing is.. Before I have sex I am okay although bloating is an everyday thing for me, but after sex I get a 'uti'. example: I went to the doctor and 3 days after having sex once in between I end up in AGONY and had to go to A n E coming back with antibiotics and a UTI.
I have been recently having my period 2x a month again and I am on the cerazette pill, which I am now coming off as I am getting rashes, breast pain and sickness. I have seen 3 gyne's and nothing is abnormal. Saw a urineologist a week ago did a scan over organs etc, nothing abnormal.
I have doing everything, from holistic things to diet to pills. I have tried a wheat free and gluten diet which didn't make too much of a difference. I have like I said been on so many antibiotics it's a joke. I got told that my mother's spiritual friend picked up on a fault in my back as well as my knee.
I just need some help ANYTHING! From foods to help soothe or something I can go buy until someone will take me seriously and stop pumping pills into my body.... I can't cope with my uni work load I can't work, I can barely go a week without being in agony. I drink camomile tea, I stay away from junk and my diet is pretty good for a 19 year old student.
