Frequent urination and full feeling but not a UTI


Q: My 6 year old daughter has to urinate frequently but has no signs of a urinary tract infection. I took her to the Dr on Dec 18, they ran a urinalysis which came back normal. The Dr did examine her and found irritation on the inside of the vagina which she thought was the cause of the frequent peeing. She also had some pain when urinating, but not every time. She prescribed a numbing gel and after a few days my daughter seemed better. Then, last Friday, I noticed the frequent urination again. It's not as bad as before, but still a lot. Took her back to Dr This Monday they found no urinary tract infection, just some red blood cells, white blood cells and a few bacteria. The urine was cultured and it came back negative. In the past 2 or 3 days, she has also complained of her tummy being full, even before eating. She will continue to eat, just says she is full. When she woke up this morning, her hands were a little shaky and after she got back from urinating, she said her legs felt wobbly. She does not have a fever. And the shaky hands and wobbly legs are gone. I am just worried about my daughter and any thoughts would be appreciated.
