NSU/Urethritis, does it take long for symptoms to disappear
okay will try and keep this short :)
7 months ago i had unprotected sex, 3 and a half months later i got frequent urination and a stinging feeling in my penis
went to GP...got checked for UTIs and nothing, blood test came back slightly abnormal kidneys and i had high level of creatinine which i think is due to my on/off high protein diet over the past few years, anyway i feel they completely sent me down the wrong path of seeing a kidney specialist, had the ultrasound which was fine and basically told me to cut down on protein and water intake (load of rubbish in my eyes this was lol)
anyway so on november 19th tested positive for chlamydia, had 1g of azithro 4 tablets taken at once, next few hours and couple of days i felt good like i was getting back to normal, then after a few days the frequent urination started to kick in again but it wasnt as strong as before and i thought well whats going on.. i was told it could take a couple of weeks to settle down,i waited nothing happened.
went to GUM clinic on 3rd december,checkup for hiv/syph n all that what have ya,NEGATIVE.
he noticed discharge and then took some swabs and informed me there were traces of NSU/URETHRITIS and gave me 5 days worth of Metronidazole and 1g of zithro and 250mg zithro each day for 4 days.. felt a bit relief from this but stil had the frequent urination coming on a bit but not as strong as before and not as often as before.
clinic told me to go back in 4 weeks if i still had symptoms, anyway i was still getting symptoms enough to make me feel uncomfortable, went back and did a urine sample, they checked urine there and then,nothing found, sent it off to test for UTIs and chlamydia and both came back NEGATIVE and he examined me and took swabs to check for urethritis and said it was CLEAR, was then told he feels this is something now that will go in its own time and urethritis can take time to go....
i went to my gp againa nd was prescribed with 5 days worth of metronidazole again, in my 3rd day now and just really feels the same to be honest.
so questions :)
will this go on its own now?
is there anything else in my body that is stopping this from flushing out my system?
is it possible some bacteria is there?
do i need different antibiotics to help this go?
i have been told to go back to my kidney specialist for follow up appointment now cos my creatinine level was up at 126 i think.... if he signs it off as not a kidney problem now i will be referred to urology.
is it possible this is just a bladder issue now...any ideas?
i dont get any pain with the urination, my symptom now is how quickly i feel the urine building up / being created in me after ive visited the toilet, when i come back from the toilet its like total relief like nothing is there but then it creeps back in, its a very strange problem now.
just wondering because of the infections ive had could they have caused the same symptoms to be happening after they have gone?
