Hi, I had a bladder infection about a month ago which needed two courses of anti-biotics to clear up. I am also struggling with constipation which also seems to be resolving itself through exercise and diet). I have however been experiencing period like pains in my lower/side(s) abdomen, feel the need to urinate even after I''ve been to the loo and when I sneeze express urine (I am 39) and also experience urgent needs, as in one minute I don''t need the loo and suddenly the next I''m bursting to go. I also experience intermittant pungent odours which I am not familiar with. Your advise is most welcome!

Hi, went to the doctor who prescribeded tablets (same conclusion as yours) but is also sending me for to a specialist for other issues with my intestines. I" ve had sores in my mouth for over a year which do not go away, a sore finger for over a month, slimy stools and coupled with the constipation thinks there may be reason to dig a little deeper. Would you recommend the same? Thanks
