Hi...I am sorry for your symptoms.
I feel that you may be going through a hemorrhagic cystitis.
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) happen when bacteria get into the urethra and travel up into the bladder.If the infection stays just in the bladder, it is a called a bladder infection, or "simple cystitis." If the infection travels up past the bladder and into the kidneys, it is called a kidney infection, or "pyelonephritis." Bladder and kidney infections are both types of UTI.
Factors that increase the risk of developing a UTI include:
- Having sex frequently
- Having diabetes
- Having a bladder or kidney infection in the past 12 months
- Using a spermicide for birth control
- For men, not being circumcised or having insertive anal sex
In men and women, having a condition (such as kidney stones or ureteral reflux) that blocks or changes the flow of urine in the kidneys increases the risk of a kidney infection. The typical symptoms of a bladder infection include:
Coming to the management part -
- Pain or burning when urinating
- Frequent need to urinate
- Urgent need to urinate
- Blood in the urine
- Discomfort in the lower abdomen
In young, healthy adolescents and women with a bladder infection, the usual treatment includes a course of antibiotics. The typical drug options are Nitrofurantoin or Bactrim or Fosfomycin single dose or 5 days to 10 days course.
In men, the same antibiotics can be used as long as there is no concern about early involvement of the prostate gland. Treatment is usually given for a slightly longer duration in men...up to 10 - 14 days depending on the prostate involvement suspicion.
If a urine culture has been performed and is negative for infection, other causes of pain, burning, and frequency should be considered. However, some urinary tract infections (UTIs) are caused by small amounts of bacteria that may not be detected on a typical urine culture. Therefore, in some cases your provider may choose to continue you on antibiotics even if the culture comes back negative.May I suggest you discuss these possibilities with your PCP or urologist and get yourself appropriately evaluated and managed please.
