I’m pretty sure you’ve all noticed that I seldom write a blog post these past few days and it’s because lately I’m not feeling well. Last week I’ve been diagnosed with UTI again. I used the word “again” because obviously it’s not the first time I had this. The last time I had it was when I was pregnant with Cyler and back in my college days.
I become prone to this infection because I love eating junk food and I controlled my pee most of the time especially when I’m busy at work. I felt the sympthoms last month but instead of going to the doctor I did some self-prescription. I drink cranberry juice and lotsa water hoping that it’ll cure this infection. I also tried to stay away from having junk and salty food but there are times when I couldn’t resist it. Sorry naman ang sarap ng bawal eh! 🙂
Little did I know the infection was getting worse. Last week I woke up in the middle of the night and I felt this burning sensation again. Alam mo yung feeling na parati kang naiihi and after you pee parang naiihi kapa rin. And the urination was really painful. Kasumpa-sumpa yung sakit, I swear! It was so painful that I couldn’t even go back to sleep. So I decided to see a doctor, yeah that’s how bad I am when it comes to my own health.
So last Monday I went to the doctor, she prescribed an antibiotic and she told me to come back this Friday for another round of check-up and laboratory. A few days after my check-up I felt a little pain in my back and pelvic and everyday it becomes more painful. And then yesterday, the pain was accompanied with fever too. But thank God the fever subsided not completely though. Then I recalled,
the doctor told me that the pain from the pelvic can be a sign that your kidney is affected too due to UTI. Yes, UTI may lead to some serious problems, such as kidney infection. But I’m crossing my finger now and hoping that my case is not so serious. Tomorrow, I’m going back to the doctor to have it check again. I’m really praying that this infection won’t go to the next level. I feel really bored lying in the bed the entire day, hopefully I won’t hear any bad findings from the doctor tomorrow. Hay! I hate being sick. 😦
