Uti symptoms but no uti help!

Recommended Posts

I don’t know if anyone had similar issues but I went to the doctor for what I thought was a uti, they did a urine test and a vaginal culture test and everything came back negative but they told me I had blood specks in my urine! I keep having the urgency to urinate, discharge in urine sometimes, pain in lower abdomen and pain in back. My discharge looks chunky when I pee but otherwise when I wipe I see nothing, no smell. I’m wondering if this is a symptom of hsv but I know when I first had symptoms this is how it started with thick discharge.  I need answers I’m driving myself nuts!

I have had UTI's my whole life...I'm 54 now and thankfully haven't had one in a few years. There were times the test was negative for bacteria and times it was positive but the symptoms were always the same and very painful, including blood in the urine. A doctor once told me I have interstitial cystitis, meaning the lining of the bladder gets inflamed for reasons unknown. I'd say it was possibly stress related or food related but especially acid related which was why drinking cranberry juice which is acidic did not help but made it worse. Every time I started getting symptoms I would do a shot of baking soda in water, which is alkalinizing, as many times during the day as I could. Sometimes it worked and sometimes not and I'd take the antibiotics and it would go away. When I was 51, I was diagnosed with HSV1 and 2, but have never had any symptoms and I'm wondering if that was the way it presented? Who knows? 

Try researching interstitial cystitis and see if you find any help. Changing your diet to eating foods that make your body chemistry more alkaline may help. There are lists of alkalinizing foods. I hope you find some relief because I know the pain and anxiety of having a UTI! Good luck.
