Mumsnet hasn't checked the qualifications of anyone posting here. If you have medical concerns, please seek medical attention; if you think your problem could be acute, do so immediately. Even qualified doctors can't diagnose over the internet, so do bear that in mind when seeking or giving advice.
Was going to name change but what the hell. Describe cystitus to me as something is wrong with my nether regions.
Um. Much worse than mutton-roasting. Burning low gut ache; the sort of thing you think you could relieve with a wee. But then when you wee you think the world is going to end. And even worse when you stop weeing. God it's awful. If you have that, get yourself to A&E as, as the medical person said to me "It's on its way to your kidneys"
i posted a fairly similar thread a few weeks ago, yes made much worse by a bit of erm hankywotsit. Burning when you wee, feeling constantly like you need to go, feels like the pee is at boiling point, and whatever remaining pelvic floor you have has a 10lb baby sitting on it. Cranberry juice and loads of water for now, get to the GP asap and get antibiotics, tis the only thing that shifts it for me. Don't know about anyone else but the over the counter stuff has no effect at all on my erm bits.
It could be an infection of the fanjo tissue. You really do need to see your GP. It sounds like cellulitis. I would phone first thing if not call NHS direct and see the out of hours. Don't worry about where it is, they have seen it all before.
It really sounds like thrush, I got it after taking antibiotics and it was just as you describe. Cystitus doesn't tend to cause swelling, it just burns and makes your bladder feel full all the time, then when you go to the loo it feels like it's boiling hot and just really stings. Caneston cream sorted mine out.
