Oh man, I had this same problem too, ironically enough. It’s really hard to diagnose but it could be interstitial cystitis. Another bee has it and I referred her to my doctor-starting to feel like the medical specialist around here:) I was told the exact same thing and given antibiotics and it never helped. Get thee to urologist right away and ask them to test for this. It’s treatable but not fun. PM me if you want.

I had a mild form of Interstitial Cystitis before with similar symptoms.  I don’t know if there is a test that doctors can perform to determine if you have it, mine found out during surgery.

The first UTI I had, I had to take two different type of antibiotics – once Bactrim and the second time Cipro.  I was nervous to take the 2nd one, since the first didn’t work – but I think it’s typical to do (especially if they still think it’s UTI related).  Unfortunately, I was having the “it feels like peeing glass” feeling vs. any bladder pain.

I wouldn’t worry too much about developing an intolerance to antibiotics after two rounds, but that’s my very unfounded / non-profressional feeling (I just hate and avoid taking all forms of meds).

Hmm..hate to be a buzzkill, but this could also be gonorrhea or chlamydia!  Sometimes you get urinary symptoms with those infections, and the cultures will just keep on coming back negative.  Or, I agree that it could also be interstitial cystitis.  Are you having fevers or chills at all?  What meds did they give you?  There’s a pretty good resistance of UTI bugs to both bactrim and cipro out there.

Could kidney stones be the culprit?
