problems after chlamydia

Posted by kas1792 @kas1792, Aug 13, 2016

I contracted Chlamydia from my partner and was treated within the month of getting it. shortly after being treated i noticed i was having discharge and abdominal bloating, cramping, irregular periods, spotting and bleeding during intercourse, pressure in my bladder, urine frequency and burning. i went back to my doctor on base (i am military) and she said it was strange i was having these issues and she sent me for another chlamydia test. it was negative. i went toan urgent care off base because the pain was extremely annoying and i couldn’t stand the constant visits to the bathroom. i was treated for a UTI even thought my tests weren’t positive for one. i was given cipro and also sent for my second chlamydia test because of my discharge. after a few days of the cipro not working i was able to get an appointment on base. the doctor performed a pelvic exam and got cultures and then diagnosed me with pelvic inflammatory disease and prescribed me levaquin and also flagyl because i had BV….i was sent for std checks again and it was negative as well. and sent for a ultrasound pelvic and trans bag which came back normal. i took the levaquin for two weeks and had absolutely no change in anything. i had seen my OBGYN and she said it wasn’t a big deal. the medicine would treat it and off i went… so after i was done the levaquin i had all of the same symptoms so i went back to urgent care and told the woman my problems and she did a pelvic exam.. said my cervix was irritated looking so she gave me a shot and two weeks of doxy. i had noticed myself slowly getting better in this time.. but as soon as medication was done i noticed symptoms came back. so i went back to the base doctor. she was extremely rude to me. yelled at me for having unprotected sex which at the time i had obviously stopped since being diagnosed with pid. my pelvic exam was painful… then she just prescribed me levaquin again….and azithromicin(spelling is suspect) and set me for more labs…. urine tests..uti check etc all negative. within five days of taking the levaquin no change. i decided to go to the ER and tell them my situation. the lady told me because of my past of endometriosis and my surgeries for it that i could possibly just be having a lot going on. so they gave me rosephin through an iv and also gave me doxy cyclone and flagyl.. also performed an ultrasound. ultrasound was normal besides cysts this time. but i have a history of cysts. so while taking this medicine i noticed a difference. i saw my ob again she told me it would just “take time”…. i then left my base because i am now stationed in korea. so my time in-between bases i was home on leave. i started experiencing the same issues once again. along with a killer yeast infection. i started taking anti biotics but the pain and urine issues were so annoying i decided to go to the urgent care. they turned me away and told me to go to the er. the doctor told me my ultrasound was okay besides the one large cyst on my left ovary had the possibility to cause pain.. which i feel. and she said right now nothing was an emergency so she could only treat me for the yeast infection and to follow up with an OBGYN. and that there was no way pid was still possible at this point. so then i called my insurance to try to get approval for an OB and they had to give me a primary care provider first, so by the time i saw one she gave me a referral and no OBGYNs would take me in a short time. so i was screwed. i went for a follow up with them and she did a pelvic exam and more tests for chlamydia and all. everything was negative. so nothing i could besides suck it up. i just now get to my base in korea and we have no obgyn readily available. i went to my doctor and gave him this entire same story because now I’m having a lot of discharge and bad cramping spotting and also bloating and urinary issues again and he did cultures and said it looked like some sort of infection…. he told me it was most likely not pid anymore… and also said i probably have interstitial cystitis… he told me to change my diet and come back in two weeks. I’m tired of this. i want to be better but i just don’t understand what is going on with me. i asked to be referred to an OB at another base about three hours away but he said it wouldn’t do any good. I’m just exhausted and feel helpless and i want this fixed before anything else goes wrong…… so now i have to wait two weeks to be seen again.. i don’t understand how i am diagnosed with this when this problem has been happening only since i got chlamydia.. that was back in march. i just need answers or someone with advice who has gone through this that can help me at all..

Can anyone help me? I’ve been treated for chlamydia for about 3 months now and I am still having issues. All negative and it feels like prostatitis and a bad uti. Frequent urination, burning and pain at the tip and groin. I am a male and I’ve been to multiple doctors and I just want it to go away. It’s really unfortunate. You can also tell me your experience and maybe could possibly help each other.

I had the same issues. Im male, I did 10 days doxy for chlamydia and the symptoms came back 4 days later, they told me I had prostatitis. I was given 28 days doxy almost all symptoms went away. 3 days later most symptoms returned. Burning, pain and discharge. I went to a new doctor and was testing for EVERYTHING. I mean everything imaginable, all negative. We came to the conclusion that doxy itself is an anti inflammatory and when you go off it the immune system rebounds with cyyokines, which, were being suppressed. Also, I developed all kinds of food sensitivities, dairy, tomotoes, alcohol burnt me up. Felt like full blown uti/prostatitis. I started taking advil and went zero carb. Let the foxy get totally out of my system and started introducing probiotics slowly. I noticed the more I stank the better I felt hahah. I was cured but my body was still in inflammation mode. Its tough to power through that!

Hi, are you still dealing with your symptoms? If not, how long did it take for your symptoms to go away?

I wrote a long reply, but my computer kicked me off. I am 90 yrs old and see a new neurologist with a specialty in movement disorders in 3 weeks. I have a worn out my spine with neck and low back surgeries ans stenosis. I had weahness and was in a nursing home from hypercalcium. I am a retired Physical Therapist. I worked picking potatoes on a farm and in the lumber mills. 7 brothers and sisters died of cancer At 90 yrs old, all my old friends are dead. I make new friends at the Spa. and VFW. I intend to have blood work , MRI's EEG endrocrine tests etc.My rest less leg is physical jerks after meals when I recline and start to dose and at night, and early in the morning just after I wake up. So, like many of you, our bodies are different and life styles varied. I chose to be active. I have earned the right to lay back? Bull? Not If I want to live. So, I will say it again. "You have to aggressively take charge of decisions for your health" This is one form location to use to write down questions to challenge the Docs.. Restless leg Dysorders and Periodic Leg Movement Awakeness problems present a lot of confusion in the medical field. A lot of you have been damaged by Doctors who did not know! You need to be agressively proactive for yourself. Read all these comments and keep a log . Write your questions down and give them to your physicians. Request referrals as needed. Don't be a "Milk Toasr" This disease is serious.

Hi @kas1792, and welcome to Connect. Thanks for sharing with the community. I can only imagine how frustrating it is not having a clear treatment path. I’d like to introduce you to @operationqueen, @rdrdhap and @suzette, as they may all be able to provide some insight and advice. I’d also encourage you to read this information on interstitial cystitis from Mayo Clinic: http://mayocl.in/1v8Vak4. Have you altered your diet or thought about ways you could change it? Also, have you found any remedies that relieve the pain?

Wow! So much for you to deal with. A couple of thoughts with all these meds you've been on it's no wonder that you're still having issues. Could all or some meds causing an allergic reaction? Another thought have they checked for fibroid tumors. Have had both which can play havoc with one's system. Last thought, trying probiotics to get your system balanced. Pray you get better soon.
