Hello, for pretty much a year now, on and off, ive been getting lower abdominal pain when I need to urinate.
Ive seen my doctor numerous times, and ive had kidney/testicular ultra sounds, urine tests and a lower body x-ray.
They all found nothing. It leaves me kinda low and helpless as I feel like theres now no point in going back to my doctor, because he simply doesnt know what it is, the tests found nothing and im stuck with it.
I have been urinating more frequently, I can't go the night without getting up to urinate, sometimes the pain gets unbareable so I have to get up or stop working and go to the toilet, ive never had to do this before...
The women that did my ultrasound said a possibility is that when i'm urinating im not emptying my bladded and its causing my bladder walls to become infected (causing the pain), but surely this would show up in a urine test? Which I have done 3 of over the last year.
Please help, any remedies, non-prescription drugs I can take to ease the pain? or even stop this?
