Was going to name change but what the hell. Describe cystitus to me as something is wrong with my nether regions.

And is much worse after a bit of hanky panky, I coud now roast a joint of mutton down there.

It's like weeing glass. You get a burny feeling down below and sometimes crampy feeling in your lower abdomen i've only had it once and once was enough!

Bink Sun 26-Oct-08 23:51:19

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"

You also feel like you need a wee all the time and when you go it's just a trickle.

Cystitis: constant desperate urge to pee but not much comes out, and it burns. Also low backache and general unwellness. What are your symptoms?

DippyDora Sun 26-Oct-08 23:53:37

Oh how it burns!

twinsetandpearls Sun 26-Oct-08 23:54:17

No don't have that, I need to wee a lot anyway but no more than usual.

But it is hot down there and swollen. No real pain when I wee just a slight burning.

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.

Not itchy just irritating.

Thanks by the way for discussing my fanjo at this late hour.

Bink Sun 26-Oct-08 23:55:21

PS. If you find you're becoming susceptible to it, making a rule of weeing & having a good rinse immediately after hanky-whatsit is a life & sanity saver.

Could it be thrush?

Bink Sun 26-Oct-08 23:56:35

Your symptoms sound more thrushy.

PhantomOfTheChocolateCakeAvena Sun 26-Oct-08 23:56:43

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.

DippyDora Sun 26-Oct-08 23:56:50

Thrush?

childrenofthecornsilk Sun 26-Oct-08 23:56:53

Coul;d it be a yeast infection on it's way?

childrenofthecornsilk Sun 26-Oct-08 23:57:35

Maybe take a canesten tablet just in case?

twinsetandpearls Sun 26-Oct-08 23:58:59

I will get some canesten just in case. Am taking dd out for the dat tomorrow so don;t really want to go to the doctor.

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.

Thanks meandmyjoe, I made the mistake of googling my symptoms when I could not sleep last night and managed to convince myself I had all sorts.
