Urinary Tract Infections

I’m wondering if any of you have problems feeling a UTI. I have had it twice when I went for routine screening at my rheumatologist and ha has found high percentages of bacteria in my utube and blood and I do not feel the bladder cramps or anything else for that matter. I’m Thinking that the nerve to my bladder may have been affected by the CIDP.

Then I sm curious as to how I can know going forward if I have one again. I’m concerned because I have also been diagnosed with Lupus , RA and Vasculitis so a bladder infection can lead to serious kidney issues.

Has anyone else had this issue? If so, what do you do to monitor that ?

Thank you!

I have had CIDP for 7 years. I found my frequent UTI infections were a side affect of the medicine VimPat. It is listed in the health information that comes with the prescription.
