Is chronic uti a symptom of fibro? Ruthie
Unless it is life threatening, please don't take a fluoroquinilone such as cipro, levaquin, avelox, etc for the UTI. The potential side effects are not worth the risk. Find another antibiotic option.
I don't know if it is officially, but I have that issue and doctors always tell me I am text book when I go through my symtoms
ive had this early on years before the CFS became severe. I think its just a constant inbalance in our body that causes it...
my lyme doc said it was from the bacteria.
But yes I am prone to these too....I have to constantly drink water or I will certainly get one within a day or two.
Could be IC, check it out, it runs in tandem with FIbro and CFS
I took very expensive meds from fibro and fatigue which helped, but what really helped was tong ren which was free.
Also, I went to an herbalist and he had these tiny black round pills that made them go away one time. However, I don't like chinese medicine because it doesn't have safety testing
I have had FM my whole life and I have had chronic UTIs my whole life.
I am now being tested for interstitial cystitis.
I have taken almost every ABX out there. I have taken Cipro and have not had any problems with it. Yes, I hear it can be dangerous, but just like any other med it affects different people in different ways. I have never taken longer than a 3 day course though and that was always enough to clear the infection.
I am now on a daily low dose of Bactrim to hopefully keep the infections at bay while more testing is done.
it sure seems like i pretty much have one, or almost getting one ,or just had one,
ever since i got fibro....
i try now to drink alot of water
and that helps me some i think.
