Not good again

I have been having some bad days this week. Started with another water infection on Monday, no warning woke in then night with it, i have a really awful abcess on my boob. Right now i am taking 3 antibiotics 4 times a day. Also now waiting for an appointment with the surgeon to see what they are going to do about my shoulder.

After reading some of the post about restless legs, started putting a pillow between my legs especially as my right leg is so bad, it helped and managed to get some relief. Fibro is not good at mo, think it is because i am unwell. As for the water infection, despite being long term antibiotics for that the infection has now become resistant to them so looks like a review of meds to see what else i can take to stop them. Plodding on thought.

Hi Linda,

Try controlling your carbohydrate intake to reduce the risk of bacterial infections.

3 different anti-biotics? just one messes my waterworks up!

have you been referred to an urologist or other specialists?

I hope they get you sorted soon.

Hi lindamorgan

I am so sorry to read that you are not feeling too well at the moment, and I genuinely hope that you can find some resolution and relief to your issues. 3 antibiotics seems quite a lot, so I hope the y work really well for you?

My late mum has this same problem, so I understand what you are going through, and you have my complete sympathy.

All my hopes and dreams for you

I have had investigations for the urine infections, i have a duplex kidneys, so this is what causes them. Feeling more like normal today, its settling down. Abcess has burst although still sore, being dressed by nurse at surgery.


Bless your heart!!! I pray you will start healing and feeling better sweetheart!!!! xxxx Mitzi


Feeling tired today, suffering the fallout of taking so many antibiotics, bring on the Loperamide :)

Oh you poor thing linda! Have you been tested for diabetes? This can cause abscesses and boils, and can also lead to water infections. Just a thought.....

Best wishes



Yes i have Diabetes, and gathered this is what could be causing it. Although the water infections are caused by duplex kidneys and i have a habit of not going to the toilet when i need to, leaving until i am desperate, which is silly i know, i don't drink enough water either.
