From this study (3 weeks ago):
Used for the first time 1 clotrimazole pessary, clotrimazole 1% external cream, metronidazole tablets. Within an hour cystitis pains had set in, blood present in urine, frequent urination. Symptoms subsided after 7 hours. Continued use of tablets and did not remove pessary and was fine. Used cream again and within an hour the cystitis symptoms were back. Again, 7 hours until symptoms subsided. Discontinued use of cream. Now, 24 hours later cystitis symptoms are back and equally severe as before. I assumed the cream was to blame but apparently not. I'm usually very susceptible to cystitis with no explanation from my doctor but gave been pain free for 2 months until use of these drugs.
From this study (1 month ago):
i also feel pains after urinating for abt a minute before it stops and stats again when i urinate
From this study (1 month ago):
The pulsating is not in rhythm with my heartbeat. It is fast and random beats. It is not constant. It is worse at night and if laying on the couch watching tv. Putting pressure and massaging right behind the ear and on the neck seem to help temporarily but returns after removing pressure. This has been going on for three days. I have been on the antibiotics for 6 days.
