So the urine test showed that I do not have a UTI so now my doctor wants me to go down and have a culture done of my urine so I will do that. Just can't figure out why I have so much pressure there and such. Maybe the RA is just inflaming that area as well as the other areas of my body.
Once again my doctor came to the house yesterday. Such a nice thing when you really don't feel like going out.
My stomach is not too bad today...yeah. No appetite still but not as much upset so that is progress.
I hope all my sparks buddies have a terrific day.

Oh and I think I will go buy some cranberry juice see if that helps.

    I'm very late in seeing this post, Sallie, but am sending you long-distance wishes for a smooth, steadier recovery. I can't imagine having to cope with everything you are right now - what a debilitating set of symptoms you're dealing with. I have, in the past, had pretty intense bladder-region pain without any infection, and a medical investigation showed that I was having severe bladder spasms. There are antispasmodics that work well for this, if that's the case with you. Glad your doctor is following it up with a culture. A doctor who makes house calls? Mine don't even answer *phone* calls :) Only the nurses do this. You've got good medical care; it sounds like they're working hard to get you better. I'll be glad when your appetite's back - that's always a good sign! - Susan

    No UTI is probably a good thing, although undiagnosed issues can be very frustrating. Hope you get some appetite back - wish I could give you some! Hoping the cranberry juice and everything you are doing gets you back to health soon. Hang in there, Sallie.

    You can also get sugar free cranberry tabs from the pharmacy, they have no taste and you just drink them with water, get the benefits of cranberry without the sugar.

    When you get the cranberry juice make sure it has no sugar added - sugar feeds inflammation...
Take it one day at a time, hang in there!
