I have urinary pain, discomfort, burning, itching, painful intercourse, irregular periods followed by missing period for three months, no possibility of pregnancy. Now there is sugar in my urine and a bacteria that they never saw before, for which they prescribed Metronidazole. I have been on anti-biotics and 7-day yeast creams several times even though they never saw an UTI or yeast infection in testing (this problem has been going on 3 years). Since taking the meds, I have increased pelvic pain, back pain, odd-textured discharge, and my lips are really dry.
I have a slew of other symptoms,either related or irrelevent: migraines, "electrical shock" pains usually in head, but sometimes in leg, heart palpatations, chest pain, pressure, constriction, shortness of breath, circulation issues (heart images were normal and 24 holter normal), fatigue, joint pain, occasional feeling of weakness throughout entire body,
Please help if you can. I am going crazy. If you know what is wrong, please let me know and also let me know how to convince my doctor that you are right, so that I can actually get the right tests done. Thank you for your time.

  • Sometimes doctors are unable to detect certain symptoms. I had to go through so much trouble with them. I came across a site called caring.com, where they had listed out the symptoms. Hope this can help you.

  • Have you been tested for endometriosis?No, I have not. I still have yet to get a referral to a urologist. At this point, I am just waiting for the doctor to run out of things that they can do on their level, because until they are satisfied, they will not refer me.

Thank you for your time.The only time they prescribe metrodiazole is for trichomonas....Take all the medicine..It is a parasitic infection (STD) Do you take Anti depressants? My nephew and my son experienced the electrical shock sensations from running out of the medicine...You are not crazy NO so just get that right out of your head...You have alot going on with your body and you need blood work done CBC and differentials and urine test to see if the little critters are gone but not until you take all the medicine. If you had trichomonas that long you could have chest pains, shortness of breath, definately weakness, and fatique. Please lookup Congenital Syphlis.....It is something you could have been born with....Ask for a complete STD check (blood work)...Tell your Doctor that because you are a worried mess you are just trying to figure out what your symptoms mean and if he wont do the tests go to a new Doctor. In other words he works for you...FIRE HIM....If you are sick they should try to help you get well by figuring out what is wrong....Dont give up til you have answers OKAY? Good luck So sorry youve been thru all this...Do not let it affect your mental health and stay calm when talking to your Doc okay? TC and good luckPS Also whomever you are having relations with do not have sex until they are treated it will come right back....(you have to wait until you are sure it is gone and they are sure it is gone (retest)
