Nursing Mom with Bladder Infection Containing Blood
One minute I'm totally fine and the next I'm rushing to the potty with the sensation to pee like never before and out comes blood, clots and what looked like bits of flesh. The pain was unbelievable (no burning, just crazy pain with what felt like my bladder spazing out big time and seizing up) and shortly after that (like maybe 15 mins) had to go again with even more of what happened the first time. After six visits to the rest room in a matter of an hour and all this pain I sent myself to the urgent care clinic. Total of about 7 hours torture and a prescription for amox/clav, I am sitting here freaking out because I absolutely don't want to take any antibiotics (avoid them like the plague) plus I am nursing and I don't want my 8 week old getting any of this junk either! Anyway, here it is at the 2am hour and for the past 30 mins. my urge to go is next to nothing and the last time I went the blood was dimenished quite a bit from the last time - still hurt like a you know what (could this have been passing a stone rather than a UTI?? but wouldn't have seen the stone?) ...story told, I saw your remedies on EC and took the 1 tsp sea salt and really want to try the Org ACV/honey but am afraid because I can't tolerate either one. Honey just plain messes me up inside - I feel very sick after I eat honey and when I eat apples or drink apple juice (all organic) my ears are clogged for days and I get terrible vertigo. Any suggestions - should I just deal with the vertigo and do the ACV anyway - the benefits seem amazing, maybe take just a tiny amount at first then more and more so my body can tolerate it...ahhh...what to do??? thanks for any input and I hope it was ok to send this email.
P.S. btw, forgot to mention that i also saw your herbal remedies, but i'm not sure those are even ok for nursing moms...thanks, appreciative of any input
