shooting pain with UTI, please help!!!

Thanks very much for your help!  
Dear Doctor,  I had painful urination with shooting pain in the lower abdomen even after 3 days of cipro.  I took 40 tablets, 163mg methanamine/tablet of Cystex which converts to formaldehyde but I still have a little pain.  
I also have nerve numbness and no sensitivity in the genital area- I have prediabetes.  I have a small round dark red abscess and red streaks on my inner thigh, maybe from prednisone.  Is there anything I can do for the nerve damage please?

Control of your blood sugar will help with progression of "nerve damage".  I would however suggest you see a neurologist if you are experiencing significant numbness with loss of sensitivity.  This should be investigated further and wold be an unusual finding in a 'prediabetic".     I would suggest you see your doctor for a urine culture and possible change in antibiotic.  J.

I read that cystex is good since bacteria can't develop resistance to formaldehyde?  I took 80 tablets of it with 7 days of cipro but still feel a little pain in the lower abdomen, but my urine is clear

I take metformin sometimes but it gives me nausea.  I read also metformin is good for preventing Alzheimer's

no the 80 days cystex and cipro didn't work.  finally after the 3rd pack of cystex taking 5 tablets at a time I'm having some relief of the pain with 2000mg vitamin C
