Does anyone else suffer from constant UTI's?. I'm sero+ RA (diagnosed 5 years ago), also I have osteopenia, sleep apnea, hypothyroidism and fibromyalgia. I take various meds including MTX 25mg via injection, I also have Rituximab infusions every 6 months. For the past 4 years I've suffered from repeated UTI's. All urological investigations have been normal, apart from bladder scarring caused by the UTI"s. I take a low dose of Nitrofurantoin daily to try and prevent infections.
My current infection has lasted now for around a month. I've been treated with a 10 day course of trimethoprin, a 7 day course of nitrofurantoin, and a 10 day course of cephalexin. Each time 2 days after finishing the course of medication my UTI is back with a vengeance.
Is anyone else having this kind of problem???
