Inserting pure salt, (l use cooking salt) into the vagina and urethra helps ease pain. Try it with lukewarm water and slowly use salt neat. Be careful, it can burn. I have suffered from E. coli 0157:H7 infection for 4 years almost, and had septicemia 5 times with IV drips and suffered heavily being referred falsely to mental health and cleared by several psychiatrists. I still have E. coli today and l almost died about two weeks ago. My blood pressure dropped to 90/50 or 90/60. I only had one and a half days IV drips.

I have been diagnosed with E. coli and it was not a friend to me. I had and still have problems with my urinary tract and that's how I found out that I was E.coli infected. I had no energy, major headaches, and stiffness, with soreness. I had diarrhea that was bloody and when I urinated it felt as if I was using a blow torch from the burning and pain. I lost 12 lb during this whole ordeal because I didn’t have an appetite.
