I am a 23 year old male. One night about a month ago, I felt an irritation of the penis after urinating such that I have go again although no water would come out. The next day I went to a walk-in clinic where I was given Cipro for a week. The drug didn't help shake off the feeling so this time I visited my family doctor. He said Cipro should clear the symptoms so he did a urine culture before prescribing anything. I waited for a week for the result, and during this time I developed a burning/stinging sensation on my bladder region that comes on and off at random times of the day. I sometimes also felt pain during urination but not every time I pee. And the irritation that causes itching of the inside of the penis is often times present after urination as well. The urine test showed E.coli was present, but since every thing else is normal my doctor said it's most likely contamination. He nevertheless gave me one week of Macrobid which should kill the bacteria in my urine according to the sensitivity test. However, the drug didn't help relive the symptoms. Another urine test after the Macrobid therapy showed same results as previous one, and the doctor is convinced that the E.coli in the urine was a result of contamination. A few days after this I found that the burning sensation on my bladder can be felt strongly when I sit but can be relieved temporarily if i stand up or lay on my back until the bladder is filled with urine. I also started having a sore back which comes and goes. Then I went to see the doctor at my college who requested another urine test which showed trace amount of protein which he said shouldn't be a problem since the amount is very small. Also the urine showed no blood. He did check for kidney stones by punching on my flanks and since I felt no pain in response and no blood in urine he's pretty confident that I don't have kidney stone. He then sent my urine for culturing. I checked the results online which showed no growth. I am going to see the doctor four days later, but right now the symptoms are getting in the way of my study and I am not sure if the doctor can come up with any thing useful. Could you provide any insights to what's wrong with me?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
