:confused: im experiencing these symptoms,bladder discomfort , dry mouth, stinging burning eyes, frequency urination, the bladder discomfort has subsided drastically to none, altho i still have to urinate frequently, do not know if its because im drinking so much water to flush myself out, the burning eyes started lightly and have gotten a bit stronger after i went to the doctors and he gave me phenazopyrid, he said the side effects beside turning my pee orange is dry mouth and that can cause dry eyes, or visa versa. he also gave me petanol for the eyes they do work but i only use them twice a day my eyes do not get red, they just sting a little or burn a little when i close them, its not all the time that i experience the burning/stinging eye thing, also i have experienced diarrhea a coupe of times about 4 times since i been on this medication the times that i experienced the diarrhea were when i took the medicine with out food, then ate after i took the med its then i had diarrhea... i went to get blood work done to make sure everything is fine, at times i feel fine i dont know if my mind is playing tricks on me, can anyone relate or help?

  • i went to the doctors and i did the normal pee in a cup test for bacteria, and it came out negative so the doc prescribed me the med that turns your pee orange, last night was my last night taking it. i do feel better in the discomfort part, but my eyes are still giving me some bother, and my left teste or on that side of my scrotum i feel a lil pain here and there, the dry mouth i think is part of the medication that the doc gave me for the bladder frequency. it has gotten much better i did wake up with a bit dry mouth this morning, but its better. im awaiting my blood test, but im a natural paranoid,

  • Try some artificial tears/lubricating drops for the eyes. I like GenTeal, Refresh, Systane. If the drops aren't working, try a more viscous solution like GenTeal Gel. Ointment preparations for use during the night in the eyes also help to relieve symptoms.

  • I have a few questions:When did your symptoms develop and how long have you had the urine frequency? Were you prescribed the phenazopyrid before or after these symptoms developed? Were you taking any other medications at the time your symptoms developed? Did your symptoms develop after having sex? How many times are you urinating daily? Do you wake up at night to urinate? What is your diet like? Do you drink caffeinated sodas, or "energy" drinks? How old are you? Thanks for answering these questions.DOM

  • yes these symptoms developed after i had sex, it was about a week ago then i went to the docs because i was urinating more than usual, he did a pee test and said that there was nothing in the pee so he did not prescribe antibiotics, instead he gave me the phenopyrid and petanol for my eyes as they were a little burny after i started taking the meds tho i started getting dry mouth, and my eyes were burning a lil more stronger, i finished the phenopiryd last night, the bladder urgency, and discomfort has gone down drastically and my dry mouth feels like its getting better, i been drinking water 24-7 i did get a bit of discomfort on my left side of the scrotum, but thats faintly gone, im awaiting my blood test, last night i experienced my heart beat beating hard, might that be from axiety? i been very down and freaking out that it might be hiv. but last night was the first night i experienced the heart thing i am 28 173 pounds, by the way the diarrhea is gone. i think it was because i took the phnozopyridon an empty stomach.

  • Patanol is an allergy eye drop and I don't believe that it's doing you any good. Unless your eyes are very itchy, you should switch to artificial tears as I mentioned before.

  • Green tea is actually very soothing for the eyes. Chrysanthemum tea is excellent for red, burning eyes - you can find this at an Asian market. But if you just place warm green tea bags on your eyes it should really help. I wouldn't worry about HIV, unless you were engaged in "risky" behaviour. It is possible you have candida issues - this won't show up in any tests for STD's or urine tests. Google candida for more info. Best wishesDOM

  • I very much doubt that you have HIV and those are not the symtoms of HIV, with HIV the symptoms could be almost anything because HIV doesnt make you ill and as no symtoms its oppertunistic infection what makes you ill with HIV. I spent months worrying I might have HIV only to never actually find out what is wrong with me. The thing you will find out once you get ill is that medicine is about the most backward science known to man and were still in the dark ages when it comes to treatment and diagnosis. I'd get tested for diabetes if I was you, I also have to urinate frequently and havent got a clue why and dont think I ever will.
