Unreated urinary tract infection

 I had symptoms creeping up on me for months that I wrote off as being from "something else." I was diagnosed on Monday with a UTI. A body piercing in the right location can contribute to a man coming down with a UTI....... I had a WBC in the very high area of normal for the last six months. Low grade headaches. Felt like total crap. Frequent urination and some almost unnoticeable discomfort when I urinated. UTI's can go undiagnosed in men for quite some time due to subtle symptoms and the fact that men rarely catch them. REMEMBER PIERCINGS MAKE MEN MORE SUSCEPTIBLE TO UTI's. If you have any discomfort when urinating and if you feel crappy get your urine tested for a UTI!!!!

They are a curse , but usually once the meds kick in easy to control. Good luck with finding a med that suits

My doc put me on Levaquin. I can already feel an improvement.
Thanks!

Great remember to drink more fluids than usual you want to give yourself a good wash out.
