I got treatment of 4 tablets of doxycycline. I had a strange nasal problem at this time, it was sort of blocked up, but the main problem was that it was crusting to the inside of my nasal cavity. (Like hard sticking mucus to the inside of my nose). After I took the tablets this problem went away.
I tested positive again for chlamydia in about May. I had one other sexual partner in that time. I had the nose problem again. I took 4 tablets of doxycycline and it went away (again).
4 days into being retreated I had protected sex with my partner, and I started experiencing frequent urination problems, like before. I had sex with my partner after the 14 days unprotected and I was fine, but still had the frequent urination problem - no nasal problem - just frequent urination. So I decided to use protection from then on.
I went and got tested again (urine) and at the GUM Clinic, my test came back negative. Both urine and std. So I had unprotected sex with my partner and my nasal problem has returned (about 2-3 days after sleeping with her). I have also noticed some discharge, but still no pain in urinating - like I had before with chlamydia.
What std is doing this? I don't see why I keep getting these std symptoms? What has this nasal cavity problem got to do with it (as I've only had it when I've had clam). Could it be something else? a uti or trichomoniasis or worse?
My symptoms are:
Nasal Cavity Filling (hard crusting mucus)
Lower back pain (slight)
My partner has gone for another test at the GUM Clinic and we are both going for a HIV test tomorrow.
Update: Starting to show discharge now, still no pain as of yet. Looks like Clam might be back - but I don't see how that explains my nose problem.. every time I test positive for clam I get this nose problem
I'm still having problems, frequent urination has subsided - may have been true what they said at the STD clinic, that it may need time to return to normal.
All GUM Clinics tests (Clam, Gon, HIV, Syhp) and blood tests taken by the doctor have come back normal. Urine has been cultured that is fine too. I have been tested for diabetes, don't have that.
I am awaiting another blood test to check my thyroid and testosterone, as I have now completely lost my sex drive as well.
Pain when passing stools, usually blood
Nocturia (No matter how long I sleep for, always need a wee (urgently) when I wake)
Consistant nasal problems
and completely lost my sex drive :[
I have been looking into candida. As this can cause nasal issues, and cause all of my symptoms. It can be brought on by antibiotics of course, which I had to take quite a lot of.
Thanks for the replies so far, I will inquire about prostate exam/getting someone to look at my nose after these blood test results come back again.
A year on and I'm still having problems but I finally got diagnosed with something.
I had a staph infection in my nose. The doctor said that this - combined with cuts in my nose could have led to impertigo. I have been treated for the condition and have finished my course of antibiotics.
If it comes back I will update if I remember. I still have a lot of the symptoms I had a year ago but that is probably down to a yeast/bacterial/fungal infection.
I will still update this incase it ever helps someone else as I'm still being treated.
