Today I had a 27 year old female patient walk-in complaining of symptoms of urgency to urinate, frequent urination and urethral burning during urination persisting for 48 hours. Patient stated she awoke from sleep with urgency and suprapubic discomfort 2 nights ago. She also stated that urine now has a strong odor and a cloudy appearance. What is your differential diagnosis based on the information you have now? Based on this information, patients’ differential diagnosis is cystitis or interstitial cystitis. What other questions would you like to ask now? “Approximately how long since your last urinary tract infection? Are you voiding after sexual intercourse? How sexually active are you? Are you on using a diaphragm or any spermicide as a form of birth control?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
