I have bad anxiety and I am also a hypocondriac - I will admit it.
Got a bladder infection last week cause by streph in the urine (thought I got it from sex but now I don't know) - still don't understand that but whatever. Went on 2 different antibiotics. This did not clear up the UTI very fast. I have had UTI's in the past that cleared up in 3 days with antibiotics.
My problems - my bladder always feels full even after urinating. I have the constant urge to go. It is horrible and is destroying my life. Also have a yeast infection, so my vagina feels like a total mess right now.
I went back to the doctor earlier this week and my urine sample came up clean. However, they did not do another culture because of the clean sample. Was tested for diabetes and STD's and don't have any of those things.
My anxiety is getting worse and worse because of how uncomfortable I have become. I've read several articles/stories online that extreme anxiety can actually cause bladder problems like I am having - is this true?? I made an appointment to see a psychiatrist but that is not for 3 weeks.
I am taking several vitamins and supplements in hopes to help me relieve my fully bladder. I'm scared I have a terrible problem and I will never get better and this is going to be how the rest of my life is. I don't understand what is wrong with my body. I just want to take sleeping pills and sleep all the time. I'm scared to even drink liquids now because I'm so tired of having a full bladder. Also paranoid to have sex with my boyfriend again.
Am I crazy? Could this be anxiety related? Please help if you can.....
