  • UTI or major flare?

    I recently came out of remission in September 2010 and have not had a major flare until recently.

    It burns and HURTS at the end of peeing and i constantly hve that burning feeling. The initial pain came after pizza, a margarita, and something else. So idk if its a major flare or a UTI.

    Oh, and i have no insurance until February.

    21 year old female. Diagnosed as of November 2008 with onset of symptoms.

    I am currently diagnosed with IC, PFD, endometriosis, asthma, and vulvodynia/contact dermititis, IBS, and fibromyalgia.


    -Amitryptyline 10 mg

    -Neurontin (in place of lyrica because I can't afford it- lol) 300 mg x3 a day
    Flexeril. 10 mg. As needed.
    First laparoscopy showed moderate to severe endo

    You could go and get an over the counter UTI test kit and then if it is positive you would know for sure you need to talk to a Dr. about it. You may still have to if this continues. Hugs.
