As a child I was abused and as an adult I have had many urinary complications. When I was 7 I was diagnosed with a dead nerve in my right kidney. After having many urinary track infections including kidney I finally found a urologist that knew what they were doing. After several tests they found I had the most impressive stage of IC for my age. I was 35 at the time. After a major diet change eliminating most acidic foods possible. Over 10 years later I still have my bladder though I still get bad infections no matter how hard I try, I do know baths of any kind will cause a real bad infections including swimming in pools. More recent addition to my list is fibromyalsia. My concern is could this all be brought on by the adviser as a child? I was forced to eat from garbage cans and drink from toilets and mud puddles. Guess I am looking for answers as due to my history they cannot tell me what caused my UTI problems.
