So you were on azithromycin and fluconazole before, and cipro now? The azith would have cured chlamydia, and the cipro might cure gonorrhea. I'd guess that this is a prostatitis - did the doc find any inflammation with the exam?
Sorry about the thread of the posts.
I just thought I would keep you informed of the situation. Yes, the Doc did say there was slight inflamation of the prostate, about 2 weeks ago now.
The pain is still in my penis however, and it's now a burning sensation right through the first sort of '2 inches in', like a hot nail being inserted. This actually gets worse about an hour after taking the Cipro tabs (2-a-day), but then settles down again? I only have 5 tabs left from original 28 tabs, but should I continue and finish the course? My blood results came back yesterday (tested for Kidney, Liver, Cholesteral and Prostate probs), no STI's, but they all came back as normal, with the nurse being quite happy?
I called the local GU clinic 2 days ago, but they said they couldn't test me for STI's as I need to be finished the antibiotics tabs for at least 10 days before the results would show up accurately?
I'm still in a lot of pain though, is there anything else I could ask my doctor to do or prescribe, I'm getting worried now.
Any suggestions what is maybe still wrong with me?
Since your std tests are negative, its beyond the scope of this forum. You might try posting in men's health or urology. Is your doctor a urologist? If not, I would suggest you see one.
Thanks. Sorry, but I meant it wasn't STI's I was actually tested for. It was a standard 4 other tests. The GU clinic said they couldn't help meantime as I was on antibiotics.
I was basicaly asking why the tabs should make it worse initially, and do you think I should visit the GU clinic anyhow?
I will go to a Urology website meantime.
Oh sorry - I totally misread that whole post, didn't I?
I can't imagine why the tabs would make it worse at first, unless it just hit the bacteria hard enough and that caused some inflammation. That's a stretch though.
If you still aren't feeling better by Monday, go to the GU clinic.
We have a urology site here, but you don't need it until you find out for sure this isn't std related. Sorry - I missed the whole thing, didn't I?
In my experience STD's can return negative results because after years the anti body go down and it is mainly the white cells doing the job. You probably have a silent Chlamdydia trachomitis. I have used Banderol successfully and have returning symptomes every time I stop it. Chlamydia infections are just super resistent, as they hide in biofilm and in cryptic forms, so if it has been years, you probably cant get rid of them anymore and all you can do is take medicine that will inhibit them. A big issue with those resistent infections is the fact that after several years the PCR / ELISA tests do not return them as positive, so basically people think they have something called Lyme disease. Often what is causing the symtoms they experience is chlamydia.
Chlamydia Pneumonae, the other form can affect your sinuses and make you tired as well. If you take 20 drops of Banderol twice a day your symptoms should progressively disappear (after getting worse the first day) but your quality of life could improve quite dramatically. I wish someone had pointed me in the right direction a couple of years ago. It has taken me a lot of trial and error with different treatments to understand where symptoms came from.
