Extreme bladder/vulva pain, irritation, blood in urine.

I have had bladder infections frequently since I was 10 years old. I married my husband three years ago and since then I have had problem after problem with my vagina. When work got really stressful, I developed a constant burning that felt very similar to a bladder infection, but when I had my urine tested it always tested negative for infection. I went to a specialist in urology who told me after several tests turned up nothing, that he thought I had interstitial cystitis. I have changed my eating habits and it seamed to go into remission.
I also have all the symptoms of vulvadinia.
Now I feel like I have a very painful bladder infection along with a yeast infection. There is blood in my urine after just three days (I assumed the pain was my cystitis at first). But when I got a culture they told me that there was a possible infection but not enough for the blood showing up. I'm currently waiting for the rest of my tests to come in. If they don't find anything, which has happened several times
before,  what doctor should I see?  A new specialist? A regular Doctor? An OBGYN? I can't afford to skip work and It is so painful I am worthless at work- I am desperate. Please help me.

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include GU infections/ inflammations, trauma/ injuries, erosions, ulcers, calculi, growths/ masses etc. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician or a urologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
