You could have an obstruction or an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> in the kidney. I was quite close an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> dying from kidney failure when I was given the wrong antibiotics an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> take. Than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> nothing an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> mess around with. Please go an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> the ER, see a urologan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>t, GP or urgent care.

I've only been on one dose an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ciproan> and Doxy. I started it last night when I returned from the docan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>rs. I noticed diarrhea fairly early one and I had a very restless night, waking up every 45 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> a few hours. Than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> morning I woke up and I had muscle pains in my left arm and back and I was feeling VERY anxious, seemingly for no apparent reason.
I finally went an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> an urgent care clinic where a urinalysan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> showed nitrites in my urine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd I was prescribed 10 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>daysan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>cipro</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>.

I went back an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> the docan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>r where she informed me that the urinalysan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> that was taken the first van style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>it had come back from the lab negative for bacteria.

Three doses, and tremendous nausea and vomiting. am I on the wrong track, and what should I be using instead if anything? I'm fading pretty fast, with little confidence in the treatment at present.
I'd go back an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> the clinic as it could be that it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a kidney <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd the bacteria are resan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>tant an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> the antibiotics you have.

I came down with a pretty nasty bladder infection about 1 month ago (painful, frequent urination, cloudy, bloody urine, etc..). I was put on a 10 day course an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>cipro</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd all seemed well. However... Probably about the second day an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> treatment I developed pain in my lower back, which I would describe as being on both sides an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ofan> my spine just below where my ribcage ends.
