Could i have picked something up maybe in Costa Rica?? when i went last summer?? thats when they all started happening and comming back.
One thing you may want to try is cranberry pills. The juice has too much sugar in it, so the sugar kinda wipes out the benefits of the cranberries. The 24 hr. urine test, although a pain to do, will tell the doctors a lot. So you should get some answers.
