Hi, I am a 22 year old, female. I have recurrent uti's (been approx. 4/5 years now). The last year I have been suffering with a dull pain mainly in the left side of flank, occasionally in both sides. I have a very high amount of leukocytes in my urine, usually some protien and traces of blood. Recently I also have ketones present. However, my urine changes everytime I do a strip test. I also have had a rash for the last year or so, almost like blotches of dry skin but, they are raised and red - some have scarred. I am always very bloated and my legs and stomach seem to have increased a fair amount in size. The last couple of weeks I have had severe headaches, nausea, blurred vision, shortness of breath and excruciating pain in my vagina. Any idea's? My urine usually tests positive for leukocytes, protein, blood and ketones. I also have started struggling to hold my bladder. I have only had one set of bloods done and just urine tests. Nothing else, the doctor told me I am just unlucky.
