Thats interesting about the soap pines. Will look for some. I too went thru 3 cdiff infections about two or three years ago and nothing since. And now this bladder infection. I wish there was no such thing as getting old.

Dec 21, 2019 · Chronic bladder infection using a Gentamicin bladder wash in Kidney & Bladder

Hi Colleen, Its been awhile since I have been on. This all started maybe the first of November but didn't go to dr. until the 19th. I lost control of my bladder so when I I had to go I went. I just had the urge. No burning or anything. I went to the dr. and they did the urine test and culture. Dr. told me she had another patient with the same symptons. no control. They put me on a couple of antibiotics but then they got the results and I went to five days of amoxocyllan which help but didn't totally deal with the symptons. Went back to dr. did another culture and I got put on another antibiotic which helped but just didn't think I was totally over anything. So went back in and got the results today, but don't know yet what I will be on. I haven't had any treatments for over a year for my cancer but things are changing in my left lung so don't know what the next result will be. Otherwise I'm doing ok, just getting hard to to breathe with my copd, no energy and tired all the time. Have chills all the time. grrrrrrrrrrrr Its getting harder to deal with things. Anyway, thats whats going on Colleen…….. Life is ever changing and learn to deal with things as they come up//

@gingerw. Ive had my thyroid checked a couple of times. One time it was off and then next time was back to normal level. I asked my dr to have it checked again next month. So if its off again will ask for more testing. I go to drs often with cancer and copd. Plus i see a counselor once or so a month.

I dont know what an anxiety attack feels like. I know i get nervous about certain things but i dont avoid them. I would say ive been. Under stress for most of my life more so then anxiety. I just want to get things figured out.

Sep 27, 2019 · Anxiety or Heart Issues? in Depression & Anxiety

First off i am 75 years old and live alone. My former husband passed away 2 years ago. I am dealing with lung cancer and copd since 2011 plus having a heart attack when i was 62. My parents are gone have one sister who i have never been close to even as kids. I started seeing a counselor when i was diagnosed with the cancer and she has been my rock. In december i started having episodes of getting the chills and then start shaking uncontrollably. . This summer started happening more often. Had a mri done and a short eeg done at mayo. Nothing showed up so then had a 72 hour eeg and everything was ok I still have the episodes tho not as often. So whats next. Anxiety was mentioned. .. i am on a low dosage of what i call a happy pill. But what do i do about these shaking spells
Do i see a psychiatrist is it anxiety. Where do i go from here. I need some ideas
