Anon because it's a bit embarrassing! (I'm a girl btw)
Basically I've had problems peeing since just before Christmas.. I've not really felt the need to go, and when I do go, 8 times out 10 I end up either sore or having to force myself to go. Have been tried on dozens of antibiotics, and profylactic treatment to no avial. Had a vaginal swab taken as I was getting a funny foamy discharge and pelvic/back pain - nothing. Have taken treatment for thursh anyway just in case. I don't understand it all, my entire "down below" is very sore, and is either far too wet, or far too dry. I'm wetting myself occasionally too - I end dribbling a bit after visiting the loo, or just dribbling while I'm out and about - I always smell of ammonia down below now too and it's horrible. Back end is not much better - very sore both in and out, and I'm always either running to the loo with tummy cramps, or completely unable to go.
The Dr thought it was anxiety - and treated me for that with anxiety tablets. The anxiety's not as bad, but this has remained as bad as ever. NHS 24 have sent me to A&E twice - no advice other than drink lots and pee in the bath. A 2nd GP at y practice thought maybe a urine infection - but the sample came back fine. She pressed my tummy which was very sore though. 3rd GP said I wasn't drinking enough - and so I have increased my fluid intake to no avail. Whatever I drink, I only pee 1-3 times a day.
Reffered to gynae. Asked me to do a flow/volume chart in which I had to measure every drop that went in, and every drop that came out. Discovered I was drinking about 1.5 l a day and passing about 600ml, sometimes less, a day. Gynae are asking me to come back a week on Wed for a review...
They talked about a prolapse, of my bladder, which I'd never thought of, but decided to explore inside - and lo and behold, I can feel something that wasn't there before, plus another lumpy thing further up. Both kind of move out/down when I strain. I'm confused though - gynae said they thought there might be a prolapse and that they'd do a full exam, but then told my GP there's nothing. Why tell me there's something wrong and then tell me GP I'm neurotic?
My mum seems to agree with them - that there's nothing wrong, and that I'm focusing on things too much. But I've had experience before, of doctors/my mum
telling me I'm neurotic and then discovering that in fact I'm not, and that I actually need an operation. And I don't want to go through that again because it took me 18 months to get them to believe me last time.
So what should I do next? I mean for context, I've drunk 400 ml of fruit juice, 200 ml of lemonade, 200ml of water, and 200ml of orange juice since 8am this morning and I haven't peed yet, despite being desperate.

why on earth are you asking a bunch of bored students.
realax about it all until you go see your gyno again. they're a much better bet than us
on a side not you're consuming a hell of a lot of sugar in those drinks!

Thank you - yeah I think an infection too - my mum has suggested a kidney infection. I can go by coughing - which is giving me a sore head and tummy as I have to sit and continually cough, and pass a dribbly bit in between coughs. Which is no fun. But at least that means I can go, and I can do it in ten minute intervals I guess - so my head wont get too sore.
