Patient Comments: Gonorrhea In Women - Symptoms

Did you have symptoms before being diagnosed with gonorrhea? If so, what were they, and did you see a doctor?

I started feeling tired, had loss of appetite, shivers, then burning hot fever of 102 degrees for 3 days. I started wheezing when inhaling; this startled me as I have never had anything like this before. I drove to the doctor feeling like I was dying, she came into the room and said I look very sick. I told her my symptoms, she listened to my lungs with stethoscope, and said I have bacterial pneumonia. No wonder I was sick I said, and she gave me antibiotics which really helped me, and an inhaler. I started feeling better, but now I have shortness of breath and feel very tired all the time; not much appetite yet.

I have been experiencing itching and a light burning sensation in my pelvic region, and now a white discharge that smells like the Vaseline I had used to calm the soreness. Do I have any reason to worry it might be gonorrhea? My spouse did find out he had it after we had unprotected sex.
