UTI/Cystitis, something else? Always freaking out!

Hi all, I am new here and this is my first post so I am not sure how this all works yet. For the past 3 1/2 weeks I have had some weird feelings. Thought it was a UTI but urgent care said they just saw bacteria in my urine and sent me out the door. I do suffer from horrible anxiety and I do think it makes things 10x's worse than what it really is. I have no fever, no severe pain, no chills, no burning during urination, only after. Symptoms are: tight feeling near belly button when bladder is full, right flank soreness (but this could be from me pressing all over for 3 weeks being scared something is wrong), darker (golden) and cloudy urine, bladder feels tender, and very minimal/slight discomfort on my lower right side. Due to that, and the horrible anxiety, I have had myself so worked up thinking I was suffering from appendicitis and was terrified that any moment I was going to be in excruciating pain, and being rushed to surgery. I am guessing since this has been happening for 3 1/2 weeks, I am clear of that? Just looking for some insight. Saw a Dr. On Demand early this morning who said it sounds like a graduated UTI or Cystitis so he called in Bactrim, 2 a day for 3 days. Anyone else have an idea of what it could be?

  • Hi overcomer91, seeing that you went to Dr. On Demand this morning sounds like Bactrim should help with the UTI or Cystitis. See what relief you get within the 3 days. But follow through with your doctor. We cannot diagnose health issues but can comfort you with the anxiety attached to it. Take it easy, drink plenty of water with medication and most of all, Feel Better. x

  • Thank you =) I truly hate feeling this way! 3 1/2 weeks ago, these feelings came out of nowhere! Seriously it was like they just rushed up and attacked me out of the blue. I had been quite stressed and overwhelmed with family issues a few weeks prior to that but I have usually handled them pretty well, or so I thought. Of course when I suddenly started feeling the feelings, I began to freak out and warded off most foods. Which in turn, messed with my bowel habits and only made things seem and feel worse. I have recently began eating like I did before all this started happening and it seems that my bowel habits are getting back on track. I am hoping and praying that the bactrim works and that it is just a UTI so I can get back to my normal self. Hopefully the Psychiatrist visit next week will also help!!

  • overcomer91, I wish you well. Three days can make a big difference on how you will be feeling. Stay positive, this too shall pass x
