I got married about a year and a half ago, I was a virgin. About a few weeks after I got married I started having vaginal buring, itching, fatigue, and pain. I went to the doctor and they diagnosed a yeast infection, then bladder infection and later on BV. A lot of the symptoms went alway however I am left with buring and pain when I urinate with a very weird smell. If I don't urinate right when I have to go I start to sweat, and sometimes I have pain and discomfort when I have sex, even when lubricated. Within the first six months of marriage I gained around seventy pounds. I am worried that these symtoms are connected. Doctors keep telling me my thyroid, urine, and papsmere are all normal and I have no STD's is there anything that could be still in me. Now my feet, hands and face keep swelling. I am constantly going to the doctor and get normal readings, but I'm still worried. I have cancer, diabetes, High blood pressure in my family I do not have these disease but I do not want anything to cause me to develop them either.

  • I tested within the normal blood sugar range many, many times before getting a diagnosis of diabetes. I kept having UT problems, some discomfort, and a weird odor, but never feeling like a full blown bladder infection. I gained 40 pounds, also had swelling in my hands and feet, with bouts of intense sweating and fatigue (probably due to the extra weight). My urine tests never detected much, if any infection. This went on for at least 6 months, and finally my blood sugar readings started to be elevated. I later read that diabetics are more prone to UT problems. I now think the weird odor was from a potassium supplement, although sometimes you do have an odor with infection. Since you have a family history of diabetes and high BP, keep having them both checked. The swelling can also cause your BP to become elevated.
