i have been suffering from urethral pain , white urine at the end of my urine stream and a clear oily discharge after urinating intermittantly for about 5-6 years.
I have visited numerous doctors and urologists in the time with no answers. I do not have any stds. I have had 2 cystoscopys, ultrasounds and ct scan of abdomen, no luck.
The white urine seems to be attributed to "amorphous urate crystals" as they were found en mass in one urine test where I actually collected the white urine (at the test limit).
The pain comes and goes and is normally managable, but sometimes it gets to about 8/10 and may last for 1-6 weeks straight.
During this time, nothing reduces the pain level (not even panadine forte).
I am concerned about losing my job because during the acute bouts I cannot concentrate on anything except the pain (im a mechanical engineer) and also my mental health suffers to the point where I consider suicide ( I am not suicidal by nature and dont think I would ever actually do it, but the pain is unbearable).
Other symptoms include testicular pain and pain down my inner thigh, but only ever on the right hand side.
I am desperate for answers and am hoping someone else out there has been through this and has an answer for me :)
