Has anyone else had green-grey discharge tinged with fresh blood?

I got my lab tests back, and it couldn't find any UTI, there was trace blood in my urine.  The nurse who did my swabs said it wasn't inflamed my vagina, but I did have an abnormal grey-green clumpy thick discharge that was like an STD, or a cross between thrush and BV.  My swabs came back negative for the STD they tested me for (no surprise since I am not sexually active), and was not clear on whether I had vaginitis either, only that I had elevated yeast and bacteria cells.  The antibiotics I'd been taking for the presumed UTI for over a week, were not helping at all, and I am only get worse, with pain and pressure in bladder, bowel, lower back and abdomen, frequent urination, and I rang the nurse again, and told her my urinary symptoms were getting worse, and the vaginal symptoms had not abated, she talked to the doctor, and he told me to stop the antibiotics and use a thrush cream as well as another antibiotic in case it was also BV.  My discharge is still greenish-grey, but now is tinged with blood, but is not yet as excessive, I just had my period that finished about four days ago, I don't usually get spotting after a period, and its bright red and fresh, its a tiny amount though.   I used my first application of thrush cream last night, and woke up with burning stinging pain inside my vagina.  It went away after a few hours. I haven't started the other other antibiotics yet. I stopped the cranberry and previous antibiotics today, and don't seem to be urinating quite as much, and am trying to drink less even though I get thirsty often. I have pain and cramping in my pelvic area and lower abdomen.  A tender bruised feeling in my lower back, and burning muscular like pain all the way up my back and around my chest (that could just be my fibromyalgia.  When I eat I bloat, and it increased the pain and pressure in my bladder, I can't eat as much as usual without feeling full.  My doctor is not going to do any more tests for now, and instead the nurse has booked me in to a sexual health clinic in two weeks.  This has been steadily getting worse for months.  Please, I am really frightened and depressed about this.  Has anyone had anything like this related to vaginitis?
