Hi everyone, I'm interested in hearing if any of you have succeeded in solving the problem of recurrent urinary tract infections? I've been having a really bad time with it in the past few months, it feels like every few weeks I have one. I've been able to find ways to manage my pain and fatigue more or less, but I don't know what to do about this. I've tried basic antibiotics and cranberry juice, has anyone found a solution?

Hi @CharlieE, thank you for opening this discussion. Fibromyalgia has indeed been linked with bladder issues, especially interstitial cystitis, urinary tract infections, and incontinence. Let me tag some other members who can possible share with you. emoticon cute

Hello all, how are you today? Have any of you noticed any bladder issues also occurring with your fibromyalgia? If so, what have you experienced? How have you treated them? Can you share any advice about UTIs with CharlieE?

I have at least one urinary tract infection a month and I haven't found a remedy for them. I usually try to drink plenty of water and cranberry juice when I feel one coming on.

@crystalsmith021409 I'm in the same situation, it's basically one a month. My doctor doesn't really have any answers so it's really frustrating.
