When is this UTI going to get better?
I started taking macrobid for a UTI last Wednesday night. It doesn't feel much better. When does it go away? This isn't the first one I ever had but it is the most stubborn. My first time with macrobid.

I had a similar problem when I was in my 20s - it felt like I got a UTI every month!!!! And it did really seem like the infection would hit on the weekend or at 2 o'clock in the morning! It's important to remember that women get many, many more UTIs than men because our urethra is very short - about 2 inches long. This is a short and easy path for bacteria to travel. The main triggers for UTI in women are: (1) having sex (they used to call UTIs "honeymoon cystitis because soooo many women got them during the honeymoon) - so ALWAYS empty your bladder after intercourse (assuming, of course, you are old enough to have sex) (2) tight fitting clothing - it irritates the area, so stick with looser clothing in natural fibers (cotton panties) (3) harsh, perfumed soaps in the genital area - use plain water to clease your genital area - and stay away from perfumey bubble baths (4) wiping back to front after using the bathroom - always wipe front to back If all these measures fail, you may want to consider talking to your doctor about prophylactic therapy. Your doctor might also recommend a referral to a urologist to find out why you are getting so many UTIs (I did this, but they never did find a reason so I just lived with it) There are medications available without a prescription to help treat the discomfort associated with a UTI (Azo, Uristat). But remember, these DO NOT CURE the infection, they just buy you a little time so you can maybe go to your doctors office at a more normal hour. Sorry, but there really is no "natural" way of stopping a UTI once it has started. Plus, an untreated UTI can progress to pyelonephritis (a kidney infection), which is serious and often requires hospitalization and IV antibiotics. Answered by Eleanore Marcrum 2 years ago.
Hi hun i'm a nurse. Things you can do to help is Drink plenty of water and cranberry juice, make sure you go to the toilet and empty your bladder fully, keep your vagina clean and make sure you have no bacteria there (but dont over-use on perfumed soaps etc. . this can cause bladder infections) wear clean underwear, and make sure if your sexually active the man is clean. Follow all this and rest aswell hun. If it gets bad go and see your doctor. Anti-biotics will clear it up. Take care xxxxx Answered by Clair Stoeckel 2 years ago.
wipe front to back urinate after sex drink water to flush out toxins shower and rinse well (baths introduce bacteria into the urethra) watch for condom irritation or irritation from other things used "there" such as lubes, creams, hygiene items, whatever wash with water only as needed (sweaty area) watch items you use for laundering your underpants I used to get them (terrible) from the Depo shot...

Can i take an anti nausea medicine while taking percocet?
Are there any anti nausea medicines that i can take while on percocet? (its too late in the evening to ask my doctor or a pharmacist)
Asked by Laurene Basua 2 years ago.
With respect to certain drugs, here is a partial list of things NOT to take with oxycodone (percocet). As you see, Dramamine is on this list. Also, please note that BENADRYL has moderate interaction with Percocet and they shouldn't be taken togther (not on this list, it is available in a PDR - Physician's Desk Reference) BTW - Benadryl is for allergic reactions, not anti-nausea : Cold or allergy medicine, sleeping pills, muscle relaxers, and medicine for seizures, depression or anxiety can add to sleepiness caused by oxycodone. Tell your doctor if you regularly use any of these medicines, or any other narcotic pain medicine. Before taking Percocet, tell your doctor if you are using any of the following drugs: * glycopyrrolate (Robinul); * mepenzolate (Cantil); * atropine (Donnatal, and others), benztropine (Cogentin), dimenhydrinate (Dramamine), methscopolamine (Pamine), or scopolamine (Transderm-Scop); * bladder or urinary medications such as darifenacin (Enablex), flavoxate (Urispas), oxybutynin (Ditropan, Oxytrol), tolterodine (Detrol), or solifenacin (Vesicare); * a bronchodilator such as ipratropium (Atrovent) or tiotropium (Spiriva); or * irritable bowel medications such as dicyclomine (Bentyl), hyoscyamine (Anaspaz, Cystospaz, Levsin, and others), or propantheline (Pro-Banthine). I'd recommend eating ginger. You won't have drug interactions and will reduce the wear and tear on your liver/kidneys from taking medicine (which, of course, is sometimes necessary, but best to avoid if possible). Medicinal Uses and Indications (for ginger): Today, health care professionals commonly recommend to help prevent or treat nausea and vomiting associated with motion sickness, pregnancy, and cancer chemotherapy. It is also used as a digestive aid for mild stomach upset, as support in inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, and may even be used in heart disease or cancer. In addition to providing relief from nausea and vomiting, ginger extract has long been used in traditional medical practices to reduce inflammation. In fact, many health care professionals use ginger to help treat health problems associated with inflammation, such as arthritis and ulcerative colitis. In a study of 261 people with osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee, those who received a ginger extract twice daily experienced less pain and required fewer pain-killing medications compared to those who received placebo. Although a few studies have shown a benefit of ginger for arthritis, one trial found that the herb was no more effective than ibuprofen (a medication frequently used to treat OA) or placebo in reducing symptoms of OA. Motion Sickness Several studies suggest that ginger may be more effective than placebo in reducing symptoms associated with motion sickness. In one trial of 80 novice sailors (prone to motion sickness), those who took powdered ginger experienced a significant reduction in vomiting and cold sweating compared to those who took placebo. Similar results were found in a study with healthy volunteers. While these results are promising, other studies suggest that ginger is not as effective as medications in reducing symptoms associated with motion sickness. In a small study of volunteers who were given ginger (fresh root and powder form), scopolamine (a medication commonly prescribed for motion sickness), or placebo, those receiving the medication experienced significantly fewer symptoms compared to those who received ginger. Conventional prescription and nonprescription medicines that decrease nausea may also cause unwanted side effects, such as dry mouth and drowsiness. Given the safety of ginger, many people find it a welcome alternative to these medications to relieve motion sickness. Answered by Ashley Camfield 2 years ago.

Nausea Medicine Phenergan Answered by Sebastian Breiten 2 years ago.
If this condition you have is Chronic, then I would certainly be asking your doctor for a referral to a Pain Management Centre. At these centres they specialise in treating long term pain. As a result of that they are far more proficient than the average GP You will usually find one associated with any hospital that has a dedicated Orthopaedic and Spinal Centre. For example here in Sydney Australia there is an excellent one attached to The Royal North Shore Hospital. I'm assuming from what you've said the underlying condition is also being looked at from a treatment point. If its treatable then there must be a concentration on doing so along with the pain management ( Research shows better recovery when pain is properly managed). If the condition is not treatable then that is even greater reason to have a more professional approach to the management of the resulting pain. Answered by Kalyn Derobles 2 years ago.
there are a number of anti-nausea medicines you can take on Percocet. The good ones are all prescription though. It's 9 pm on a Sunday. It's too late unless you can get the on-call doctor and convince them to call something in to the 24 hour Walgreen's. Answered by Hanh Lackner 2 years ago.

Ok,so this started this thursday when i was out at a club,i remember not eating much before that,i had about 9 glasses of whiskey and smoked a lot of douby's,it was not bad when i got home,like i slept properly,even yesterday,it was fine till evening but after that i started having this burning and pain right below the lower abdomen,a little before my penis,in that area. I took a painkiller but to no avail. Today Morning i went to the doctor and i showed him and explained him,he asked me when was the last time i had unprotected sex and i told him,a few days back,so he said it is some sort of infection,put me on levoflox,urispas & meftal spas,and he also adviced me a routine examination of my urine,which i got done at the same time and i recieved the reports in the evening and there was no infection there. Now i am confused so as to what this problem is all about,if it is some sort of an infection then it should have showed up in my urine examination,the doctor said it is an allergy,but i am not convinced,its that constant irritating pain throughout the day and it worsens at night,i am also having a bad burning sensation below both my feet even though i have no sugar or no history of the same whatsoever. My request to anyone who has ever faced symptoms like mine,so please advice me as to how much time does this take to clear up,and if there really is a STD which is possible without anything showing in my urine examination.

Not all STDs can be caught on routine urine screening. Normally, cultures or special testing has to be done. Anyways, suprapubic pain is normally due to cystitis or UTI, so I would finish my course regardless. If it doesn't get better, then we can consider other rarer causes. I don't understand why ur doc said allergy though.. As for the feet, it can be from standing too long or alcohol. Answered by Freeman Reando 2 years ago.

What are the tests made to diagnose kidney stones?
does anybody knows.. what are the posible medications given to patients with this kind of disease?
Asked by Vada Norat 2 years ago.
Kidney stones (renal calculi)are formed of mineral deposits, most commonly calcium oxalate and calcium phosphate; however uric acid, struvite, and cystine are also calculus formers. Renal calculi can remain asymptomatic until passed into a ureter and/or urine flow is obstructed. A person with kidney stones may report history of recent/ chronic UTI; previous obstruction (calculi); decreased urinary output, bladder fullnes, burning sensation and urgency with urination, diarrhea, hematuria (presence of blood in the urine), pyuria (pus in the urine), and alterations in voiding pattern. Person may also report nausea, vomiting, abdominal tenderness, diet high in purines, calcium oxalate, and/or phosphates, insufficient fluid intake, does not drink fluids well; exhibits abdominal distention, flank pain, elevated BP/pulse, decreased/absent bowel sounds. diagnostic studies include: 1. urinalysis: color may be yellow, dark brown, bloody. commonly shows RBCs, WBCs, crystals (cystine, uric acid, calcium oxalate), casts, minerals, bacteria, pus; pH may be less than 5 (promotes cystine and uric acid stones) or higher than 7.5 (promotes magnesium, struvite, phosphate, or calcium phosphate stones). 2. biochemical survey: elevated levels of magnesium, calcium, uric acid, phosphate, protein, electrolytes 3. serum and urine BUN/Cr: abnormal (high in serum/low in urine) secondary to high obstructive stone in kidney causing ischemia/necrosis 4. serum chloride and bicarbonate levels: elevation of chloride and decreased levels of bicarbonate suggests developing renal tubular acidosis 5. CBC: Hgb/Hct:abnormal if client is severely dehydrated or polycythemia is present (encourage precipitation of solids), or client is anemic (hemorrhage, kidney dysfunction or failure) RBCs: usually normal WBCs: may be increased (indicating infection or septicemia) KUB xray: show presence of calculi and/or anatomical changes in the area of the kidney or along the course of the ureter IVP: provides rapid confirmation of urolithiasis as a cause of abdominal or flank pain. shows abnormalities in anatomical structures (distended ureter) and outline of calculi cystoureteroscopy: direct visualization of bladder and ureter may reveal stone and/or obstructive effects CT scan: identify/delineates calculi and other masses; kidney, ureteral, and bladder distention Kidney Ultrasound: to determine obstructive change, location of stone; without the risk of failure induced by contrast medium Medications to be given will depend greatly on the type of stones formed. narcotics e.g., meperidine (demerol), morphine: to promote muscle relaxation antispasmodics, e.g., flavoxate (Urispas), oxybutynin (Ditropan): to decrease reflex spasm, colic and pain corticosteroids: to reduce tissue edema to facilitate movement of stone Acetazolamide (Diamox), allopurinol (Zyloprim); increase urine pH and reduce formation of acid stones. antigout agents such as allopurinol (Zyloprim) also lower uric acid production and potential of stone formation. Hydrochlorothiazide (Esidrix, HydroDIURIL), chlorthalidone (Hygroton); may be given to prevent urinary stasis and decrease calcium stone formation if not caused by underlying disease process such as primary hyperthyroidism or vitamin D abnormalities. Ammonium chloride; potassium or sodium phosphate; reduce phosphate stone formation Antibiotics; presence of UTI/ alkaline urine potentiates stone formation Sodium bicarbonate; replaces losses incurred during bicarbonate wasting and/or alkalinization of urine; may reduce/prevent formation of some calculi Ascorbic acid; acidifies urine to prevent recurrence of alkaline stone formation Answered by Criselda Giarratano 2 years ago.
There are several ways they can diagnose kidney stones. One is to do an ultrasound of your kidneys. This is pretty reliable but if you are overweight it can be hard. Another way is to have a CT scan. But the most popular test is the good ole IVP. This test is given with dye. The big stones usually don't cause much pain. It is usually the little bitty stones that will put you on the floor. All medications given for this problem is usually based on the make up of the stones. Answered by Porsha Seidling 2 years ago.
okay ivee had kidney stones twice now- once during pregnancy that required surgical removal since the stone was a 10 mm most stones that cause pain are 3-4 mm....the testing done is an IVP you have to get an injection in the arm and then they xray you using the dye the injected to examine the kidneys, another way is by ultrasound but this can be blurry for DRs so they prefer a more sufficent test..they sometimes use a CT scan for diagnosis.....unless yuo are pregnant- then all they can do is an ultrasound since all other test can cause stress and possibly injury to the baby....once your diagnosed youd usually get pain meds but some doctors dont prefer to give since these meds will often challenge your kidneys even more- it kinda depends on the person...theyll usually give you vicodin or percocet but if it is to the point where they are moving alot- youll know when this is because it is very and i mean very painful the pain willl come in waves and possibly cause nausea...theyre often compared to labor pains and if you were to be treated in an emergency room they may give you morphine-itll burn when they first inject it but the pain will become more bearable and at that point the doctor will decide how to remove them if he wants- often a doc will tell the patient to return when theyre having severe pain -if he does remove theres 3 surguries and depending on where the stone is located (in kidney or in the tube that passes your urine to your kidney) that ll be the decideing factor on what type surgery- the do and ultrasonic ping where its ultrasonically shattered and you pass it , laser removale is another and worst case- theyll cut ya and dig it out ( this was my surgery) as for meds i dont know the name but i was told by my doctor that the medications that aid in preventing stones are often not worth taking since they cause ill side affects to the user and should only be considered in severe repeatious cases....one thing they can do is try to figure out what caused the stones by a metabolic work up by your doc and they can let you know how to possible (no guarentees) avoid the pain in the future.....good luck!!!

A Urologist. You need to go to the hospital and have a I.V.P done. That will tell the doctor exactly where the stone is. You don't need to drink anymore if it's not coming out. That meens the stone is too big and is blocking your urethra. You need to go to the hospital.

(NOTE: THIS IS NOT A UTI !) I have always had horrible pain (bladder) for a long time now. Im so over it, I just don't wanna feel it anymore, I don't wanna feel when it contains urine, when it doesn't, when its infected, ever! I've been to doctors for this pain, it isn't a uti or treatable... However, I wanna have the nerves cut. I don't know if this would require pelvic nerves, or the stretch receptors. I've only done minor research. I haven't made any decisions yet, but I want to know how they do this (as I know they can), and how it affects the urinary system etc. Answered by Debi Dorin 2 years ago.
Wow, you sound like me about 10 years ago. I started with a UTI and got it treated. 15 days later "it" was back. I got treated again. A bit later and I was at a urologist who did the usual culture and they told me that this time it was not a UTI. They must've thought I was crazy because it felt just like a UTI. It royally sucked! So this went on and on for about a year. Sometimes ok, sometimes in a great deal of pain. Here are some notes for you to investigate (don't know if they'll help, but hey, worth a try): - I noted my pain was around my cycle. I think you are a gal, but not sure (if you are a guy, ignore this!). Sometimes the bad pain started a day or two after my period started....sometimes a day or two before. - This led me to a possible diagnosis of endrometriosis. They did go in and do a laproscopy just to have a look see. After the laproscopy, they put me on the continual birth control pills so I never had a period (well, very infrequently). Two years later I went off the constant pills and was fine ever since. - After the fact I remembered they were playing with my birth control pills at the time...perhaps it was a reaction to those. - So I have no idea if it was the "cleaning" of the laproscopy, the changing of the type of pill, or the cycle change by never having a period that ultimately did the trick, but it did. - Also, I was put on a medication during my painful time called Urispas. It was a life saver for me. It numbed the area and made me feel normal again. - Finally, a few years after my issue, I read an article about a medical condition affecting the bladder (no cure, but years of pain) that wasn't a UTI...but it was good to read. I just have to find it for you...ah, I think I found something on webmd. Follow the link... Answered by Alphonso Jasinski 2 years ago.
My sympathy. Be careful, the Bladder and nerve system are there to let you know that the bladder is full.< The other thing seems to be indicating an infection>. Your urologist will be able to test for that, but don't go into medical areas without expert guidance. Once those nerves are cut there are no warning sensations. Spartawo...

It's good you are asking about this surgery B4 you have it. I am a nurse, but this is the kind of question to ask - not 1 Dr - but several. And then do more research on your own.

well, if it can be done, you will be incontinent the rest of your life and whined up wearing a diaper. Then you will reek of urine. There has to be a reason for the pain. I would continue to seek medical help until the issue is resolved. I cannot imagine a competent surgeon who would do such a drastic procedure. If he does, he is a quack and you are a fool for having it done. Then you will be on line complaining of urinary incontinence and why you reek of stale urine.

Asked by Javier Courtois 2 years ago.
One of the main causes of bed wetting in adults is alcohol abuse. Being too drunk to get out of bed, or respond to the signal the body sends when one's bladder is full. Often all these people need to do is not drink as much. Of course, there are also many people who don't abuse alcohol but suffer from nocturnal urination. There can be many causes, from anatomical reasons, to sleep problems. The inability to control the bladder is a very common condition in a lot of adults. There are even medications available by prescription like darifenacin (Enablex), dicyclomine (Antispas, Bentyl), flavoxate (Urispas), hyoscyamine (Anaspaz, Levbid, Levsin), methantheline (Banthine, Pro-Banthine), oxybutynin (Ditropan, Ditropan XL, Oxytrol), solifenacin (VESIcare), tolterodine (Detrol, Detrol LA), and trospium (Sanctura). Please don't be shy about asking your doctor. With so many medications available, it should be pretty apparent that doctors have heard of the problem often. P.S. Don't even consider the answer that tells you to take Amitriptyline. It is a seditive used to treat depression and anxiety, and will only make you less aware of the need to empty your bladder during sleep. Answered by Shyla Riebel 2 years ago.

Asked by Consuela Gradley 2 years ago.
Urge Incontinence- this is the most common of all types of incontinence, it accounts for about 65% of all cases. In these instances there is an uninhibited contraction of the bladder resulting in a leakage of urine, even though the internal and external sphincter may be contracted to oppose the outflow of urine. In a sense, the detrussor muscle works against the sphincter muscles and if the pressure of contraction of the detrussor muscle exceeds the pressure of contraction of the sphincter muscles then leakage occurs. The signs and symptoms are a sudden urge to urinate and if one is unable to void immediately, a leakage of urine. This type of incontinence can occur secondary to bladder stones, cystitis, neoplasms, or because of decreased cortical inhibition as might occur in cases of dementia. The pharmacological treatment approach is to try override the contraction of the detrussor muscle by giving a bladder relaxant. Since cholinergic stimulation causes bladder contraction, the drug of choice would be an anticholinergic drug such as Ditropan or Pro-Banthine or Bentyl or Urispas. SURE HE WILL BE FINE.

Mitral stenosis (MS) is narrowing of the mitral orifice impeding blood flow from the left atrium to the left ventricle. The most common cause is rheumatic fever. Common complications are pulmonary hypertension, atrial fibrillation, and thromboembolism. Symptoms are those of heart failure; signs include an opening snap and a diastolic murmur. Diagnosis is by physical examination and echocardiography. Prognosis is good. Medical treatment includes diuretics, β-blockers or rate-limiting Ca channel blockers, and anticoagulants; surgical treatment for more severe disease consists of balloon valvotomy, commissurotomy, or valve replacement. Please see the web pages for more details on Mitral stenosis. Answered by Sherrie Reuland 2 years ago.
