I've been waking up very thirsty and always feeling like my bladder is full, even when it's not. After a day or so, I went to the doctor and found out I have a bladder infection - she gave me a week's worth of antibiotics. She said if the infection clears up but i still have symptoms to come back for a diabetes test.
I've only got one kidney, lovingly referred to as "SuperKidney" for it's abnormally large size and function levels, so I have to be extra careful with anything that could threaten the well being of my solo bean.
Has anyone had a bladder infection and how did it affect your training? I have no desire to do anything except lie down (seems to alleviate the yucky full bladder feeling) but I wonder if I should let it affect me. Will the training compromise my body's ability to fight it off? Can I swim with it? All of these are questions that occurred to me AFTER leaving the doctor's office :)
I know they're fairly common, but I made it 29.9 years before I got my first one, so I'd appreciate anyone who has experienced it.
Also, any tips to speed up the healing, other than cranberry juice?
