I had reoccuring UTI's when I was around 10 for about a year. About 2 years ago I started getting them all the time again (I am 17 now, almost 18). When I don't have a UTI, I still have the burning.
I have done my research, and I know that endometriosis (I had surgery for this when I was 14) can also grow on the bladder. Does anyone have it on their bladder and have this problem?
I went to one doctor at the after hours clinic and she told me I have have Interstitial Cystitus. Before my family doctor retired and we got a new one, he was going to refer me to a urologist (which clearly means this isn't normal).
The problem is my current family doctor doesn't take me seriously, and keeps telling me it's just puberty. I hit puberty when I was 10. I had to fight with him before he would give me anything for it (he gave me perydium). It was so bad I couldn't go to school.
I'm not really sure what I'm trying to ask. I just don't know what to do if my doctors not taking me seriously. I'm not the kind of person who fakes things for medication; I only go to the doctors if I absolutely have to, because I have bad experiences with them. It took 3 hospital visits to find out I had a Bartholin Cyst (I was told it was an ingrown hair).
I can't just switch doctors, because there is a big shortage in my area. Any ideas?
I am trying to wait until the perydium runs out before I go back, but when I do go back I want real answers, not to be thrown aside again.
