Im just going through the most craziness illness of my life I’m 43 I started out on the 14th dec with wanting the toilet more fully emptying my bladder but quite a lot of ml
By the 20th I was struggling to even start to urinate with a burning behind my scrotum and an heavy pressure there so I sat in open surgery the morning of the 21st .... the doctor did a pee dipstick no infection did a rectum test for my prostate and did my reflex for Cauda equina seems ok so sent me on my way and said drink plenty of fluids ......
each day this pressure feeling was driving me nuts using the toilet more and more within 30 mins burning sensation in the end of my penis
By Christmas Day I was climbing the walls so ended up at the AE .....after 7hrs my bp was 165/128 they found blood and infection in my urine and prescribed me thrimethoprim 200mlg twice a day I took one as soon as I left the hospital .... went to bed as soon as I got out of bed 5hrs later the symptoms had relief wow I took my second 200mm later and went to bed .... I had the worst sleep ever dreams that felt so real and sweating ....
The next day the symptoms was still releved until the afternoon then it all came back !!!
the pressure bit and burning tip of penis
Needing the toilet again until bedtime ... I finally got to sleep slept 6-7hrs before needing toilet ... after I emptied my bladder the symptoms had releved again
All night I was dreaming and the top of my spine felt like a hammer had been used I had burning sensations down my inner thighs to the soles of my feet and hands ??
Today I went back to docs and told them she did a pee dipstick again and said my infection wasn’t showing but keep taking meds
The thing is my symptoms keep coming on and off needing to urinate every hr and the pressure sensation is still there with the burning in my penis obviously I’m going to take the rest of the antibiotics but I ’d really appreciate any shared past experiences
