I've been reading your bladder posts....perhaps it needs its own forum!
So for a long few months I have had various health issues - at times it felt relentless. And recently I have had what felt like a UTI. I went to the GP, was given nitrofurantoin. I had this once before but this time it made me feel hellish. My legs were very stiff, I was exhausted and my eczema flared up. I was still symptomatic so went back after almost a week. The test results had come back negative so I was told to see how things went for a few days. I gave another sample. Well it did seem to calm down and then it was back. I had been taking D-mannose and even some uva-ursi.
I went back yesterday and was told that both samples were negative. But this time I had been peeing blood so they gave me cephalexin. I have almost taken 2 day's worth but not yet convinced it is helping.
I am due to go for a scan...not sure when, that's up to the NHS. But I have no idea what to do or what it might be.
Have you experienced this at all - when you are sure it is a UTI but the tests say otherwise?
I would appreciate any advice please!
