BlueRhapsody Posted April 29, 2010 Share Posted April 29, 2010 I was inspired to post this by the other peeing problem thread a few days ago, haha. I'm a female in my early twenties, and I've been experiencing a strong burning sensation in the vulvar area after urination for the past two years. I've made many visits to the doctor during this time and been tested for UTI, yeast, BV, trich, chlamydia and gonorrhea, all of which have come back negative. Also, during the pelvic exam I was told that everything looks normal. There's only one thing I've found to relieve my symptoms, and that is to drink a lot of water. For example, immediately after I go to the bathroom first thing in the morning I need to drink a full 591 mL/20 oz bottle of water to avoid feeling any burning. With each successive urination during the day I can usually cut that amount down to half or even a quarter by nighttime when my urine is fairly clear. Although I'm happy to have found a way to prevent the burning, the problem is that I absolutely *cannot* go to the bathroom without drinking good amount of water immediately afterwards. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this? My doctor(s) have absolutely NO idea what is going on, or why drinking water would alleviate my symptoms like that. This is also quite annoying for me, especially if I'm out somewhere and have to go to the bathroom but don't have any water with me. Thanks in advance for any advice! Link to comment
