For some reason i've become very prone to bladder infections recently. The last one i had caused ON in my left eye for nearly a month and now i have another one. This time though it seems to be causing pain in my rib cage, i'm finding it very hard to sleep as i can't get comfortable. It's mainly in my back but can spread round the front of my chest, it feels as if every muscle in my back has tensed up and won't relax. Every so often i get a sharp pain run down my arms but it only lasts for a few seconds. I'm getting really fed up as i can't take a deep breath because it's so painful and i can't sleep even though i'm really really tired! Does anyone have any advice on how to relieve the pain?
Also is this classed as a relapse or just flare up of symptoms due to my infection?
Thanks for any help.
