Blood in Urine (Hematuria) Health Feed

I have been diagnosed with UTI. 7 days back I started having lower most abdomen pain during urinating. After that went for urine culture pus level is 4-6 and culture says E. Coli bacteria present. I am taking antibiotics from 4 days but pain is increased and not reduced. I also have muscle cramp at lower back. Which is leading to pain in the entire back. Does this has anything to do with UTI? And the lower abdomen pain isn’t going away? Is this normal or any serious issue?

Antibiotics are the most common therapy used to treat chronic bacterial prostatitis (CBP). ... Fluoroquinolones are the mainstay in the treatment of CBP. Fosfomycin has been shown to have good activity against extended-spectrum beta-lactamase producing organisms. Azithromycin may be more effective for Chlamydia infections.

Spreading of the bacteria from anus to urethra: The spread of the gastrointestinal bacteria from the anus to the urethra leads to the infection of the urethra thereby causing urinary tract infection.

A nagging urge to urinate: One of the most predominant symptoms of urinary tract infection is a persistent, nagging urge to urinate. You would know your urinary tract is infected when you feel the urgency to urinate extremely frequently.

Hello, I am Male 33 Years. In month June I did ultrasound and my prostate size was enlarged. Therefore the doctor advised me OMINC OCAS 0.4 mg. After taking OMINCOCAS for 4 days, pain started from anal area until penis. Also when I had sex with my partner I was not able to discharge completely. After 8 days I stopped OMINCOCAS and went to another doctor, where I was given TAXIM-0f medicine for 10 days, and I got relief from pain. After 1 month I had nightfall, the next morning there was lot of pain in my penis and discomfort and was not able to urinate. I went to urologist, he gave me prostate massage and advised to take CIPROFLOXACIN 1000 mg for 45 days. I got relief.

I feel burning sensation and pain at tip of my penis and sometimes pain after urination and pain around my penis area, also If I lift any heavy material I get nightfall.

Hello- Prostate enlargement and its symptoms can be treated by making lifestyle changes. Eliminate beverages in the evening an hour or two before bedtime to avoid overnight trips to the bathroom. Limit bladder irritants, like caffeine and alcohol, that can also increase urine production. Avoid decongestants or antihistamines, as they tighten the band of muscles around your urethra and constrict urine flow. Waiting too long to urinate may overstretch the bladder muscle and cause damage, so be sure to urinate whenever you feel the urge. Exercise to limit the retention of urine. Maintain a warm body temperature to limit urine retention and decrease your urgency to urinate. Avoid processed foods and limit the amount of refined carbohydrates you consume. A disproportionate amount of refined carbohydrates in the diet leads directly to inflammation.

This gas being forced out of the porous asphalt material and through the liquid on the surface creates bubbles. ... Having oil act as a surfactant increases the surface tension of the rain water on the surface of the road, and makes any bubbles formed in the water stronger.
