Hi! I need some help. For the past couple of weeks I have been having a flare. This has mostly involved my right arm and muscles in my back. About ten days ago I was also treated for a bladder infection. I had pain in my abdomen and blood in my urine, although they were unsure of whether this was due to an infection or to the fact that I was due to menstruate. I was given a medication to treat bladder infection. Then when I went back to see the doctor last week about another problem, he took another sample and said he wanted to make sure that he had treated the infection properly.The doctor took a urine sample and said he would try to "grow" something to make sure that he was treating the infection properly. I haven't heard from him since so I am assuming that nothing grew (I will double check tomorrow) My question: I have heard that FM symptons can cause symptoms much like those of a bladder infection. Does anyone out their relate to this, if so what kind of symptons are typical? Please let me know if you can help, as itwould be of great relief to know.
