Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I had mild abdominal pain and a burning sensation while passing urine yesterday. What could be the reason?

Kindly help.

Thank you.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for your query. This condition seems to be prostatitis, not enlarged prostate. Prostatitis can cause rectal symptoms as it lies adjacent to it. Inflammation will cause swelling and some degree of prostatic enlargement. A urine test can be normal as it is non-bacterial prostatitis. Antibiotics can treat this condition along with anti-inflammatory and alpha-blockers. I suggest you to take tablet Levofloxacine 500 mg once daily for two weeks, tablet Tamsulosin (alpha-adrenergic blocker) 0.4 mg once at night for 30 days, and tablet Celecoxib (anti-inflammatory) 200 mg twice daily for 30 days. Kindly consult a specialist, talk to them and take the medications with their consent.

    I hope this has helped you. Thank you.

Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Thank you for your reply.

I do not have abdominal pain, but the burning sensation is still present.

Kindly help.

Thank you.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

It is not necessary to have abdominal pain. Any of the above symptoms can be caused by prostatitis. Prostatitis can cause dysuria, infrequent urination, and a burning sensation while passing urine with or without abdominal or pelvic pain. Treatment includes administering antibiotics, alpha-blockers, and anti-inflammatory medications. I would suggest you take tablet Levofloxacine 500 mg once daily for two weeks, tablet Tamsulosin (alpha-adrenergic blockers) 0.4 mg once at night for 30 days, and tablet Celecoxib (anti-inflammatory) 200 mg twice daily for 30 days. Kindly consult a specialist, talk to them and take the medications with their consent.

    I hope this has helped you. Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
