2176548 tn?1340681417 It was than that I went to my doc's and had a urine sample done and found out I had a bad kidney infection. It is not easy for me to tell if I have an infection, cuz I am usually always in pain in my lower back due to Endo! I was put on Macrobid for 10 days. And I think the pain is subsiding now. Thank god! That did help tho!
Avatar n tn I've heard the pain for a kidney infection is pretty intense and I haven't had fevers or vomiting like most medicine books include as symptoms. I went to the doctor on February 14th and did a urine test for possible kidney stones. Everything came back "normal". Sorry I tried to keep this as concise as possible but I figured a thorough explanation would garner some better answers. If I had something wrong with my kidneys, would a urine test find it?
Avatar m tn After that I never had any and am so afraid of my current situation. Please advise me and help me. Are kidney infection are dangerous? How to be confirmed of a kidney infection? What are the chances of having 100 percent cure of kidney infection? My age is 30 and I am a male. Please help? worried?
Avatar f tn Hi, I was diagnosed with a kidney infection (pyelonephritis) on Oct 24 2012 and was given antibiotics (ciprofloxacin 500 mg) for 10 days. The pain and burning due to the infection went away and I seemed to be getting better, but then in the last couple of days of treatment I developed a severe itching sensation in my major and minor labia (a little near my clitoris). I stopped using tissue paper when I went to the rest room and started washing with water 2-3 times a day. That seemed to help.
Avatar f tn I had severe muscle pain, spine pain, couldn't walk, couldn't think, started hallucinating, internal body heat was extreme, headache, throat swelling, kidney area was very painful. I am wondering if there are going to be long term affects from this now. I am done with all medications except the maintenance drugs I am on. This Dr had me on Avelox, Levothyroxine, Fexofenadine, Atacand HCT all at the same time.
Avatar f tn E I read my discharged letter I have (Pyelonephritis) this is kidney infection? this serious disease? or easy to treat? I take antibiotics injection when I'am in the hospital & take home ciprofloxacin 500mg for 7 days after I finished course week later today I feel burning when I pee, pain in my abdo,back pain, & feeling uncomfortable in my tummy, my question can I take cipro. even I finished the course?
Avatar f tn I have been prone to water and kidney infection since 15 years old. I'm 29 I had kidney stones 4 years ago and had them removed 3 years ago. They found I had an abnormal pocket in my left kidney which didn't flush thoroughly... Hence infections & stones. On Monday I felt I'll with kidney infection had high temp back ache and head ache. Went to gp no sign of infection in wee. Because of my history I was sent to urology at my local hospital. They kept me in 2 nights and 3 days for obs.
Avatar m tn Always felt like a urinary tract infection or kidney infection. Was much later diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis. Was treated for that with great results. Basically, your bladder goes into a spasm, holding urine and creating the pain I felt. Treatment was to take meds to help soft muscles to relax and allow urine to be passed. Also had to have in office infusions into bladder with heparin. I found that the antihystamine Hydroxizine to be a deterrent to flares and now use it daily.....
Avatar m tn The pains continued so i went to doctor thinking it was a bladder or kidney infection. He perscribed me ciprofloxacin but that did not help, another urine test, no infection. And after worrying alot about it, im starting to get panic attacks and tingling in my hands and feet, is it likely that i have HIV? please help.
173975 tn?1216261375 So sorry to hear of your suffering, All I know is Cranberry juice seems to prevent the bacteria from sticking to the walls of the urethra, and you are so right, you need the antibiotics to prevent a kidney infection. Probiotics at end and after tx. Broken toe, I dont think theres anything they can do, but maybe set it, I think not sure but you can tape it to the next toe.
Avatar n tn 17 days post op, she's diagnosed with psuedomonis infection around the drain area. She was hospitalized for 24 hours and administered IV vancomycin. Sent home with 8 additional doses, administered twice daily via picline. She has since been on Clindamycin. Initially it was 500MG's x 3 daily. Past 4 weeks it has been 300MG's x 3 daily. In addition, she has been on Ciprofloxacin; 500MG's x 2 daily.

Avatar f tn 2 yrs ago got an acute kidney infection ( high fever, blood in pee, the works) which was treated with augmentin. since then, I keep getting less acute infections and they come back every 3 months. Low fever, very tired, abdominal swelling (a lot), back pain, urine strips show white blood cells and protein and occasionally nitrates. I had a hysterectomy 4 weeks ago (large broad lig fibroid) and I hoped that might make a difference.
Avatar n tn A major muscle injury stressed my body and I believed launched this infection. I had to suffer over the weekend before I could get into my clinic. My Internist verified my infection and prescribed CIPROFLOXACIN 500. I am into my 3rd day of Meds with absolutely no improvement. The meds make me nauseaous and dizzy. I'm running a 101 fever. During the exam I told the doctor that I had just had a sexual encounter with a new partner and was suspicious of a vaginal tear.
Avatar n tn I'm not sure if I can attribute the aches to working out or something wrong with my urinary tract. I've heard the pain for a kidney infection is pretty intense and I haven't had fevers or vomiting like most medicine books include as symptoms. I went to the doctor on February 14th and did a urine test for possible kidney stones. Everything came back "normal". Sorry I tried to keep this as concise as possible but I figured a thorough explanation would garner some better answers.
Avatar m tn Try ciprofloxacin with metronidazole for colitis. Stool examination can rule out intestinal infection.
Avatar n tn Hi, A kidney infection is usually caused due to bacterial infection that may have ascended from the lower urinary tract. You will need to have a urinalysis and culture sensitivity report to identify the organism and the antibiotic it is sensitive to. Both macrobid and ciprofloxacin can be used in UTIs based on whether the bacteria is sensitive to them.
Avatar m tn If a urinary tract infection it can get into your kidneys and cause a kidney infection. The only alternative for a UTI is to try to drink lots of cranberry juice and water for several days and see if it goes away. You would have pain on urination and have to urinate frequently. If it is a wound that could be more serious as it could get into your blood stream. So, it depends. In that case I would get treated and not have sex until it clears up. Let me know if you have any other questions.
Avatar f tn The clinic doctor tested my urine and did a physical exam and determined I had a kidney infection. He prescribed norfloxacin. Again the symptoms got better for a while and then returned. I moved to another city and attended the local clinic. The doctor there confirmed that I had a kidney infection. She looked up the best antibiotic to treat me and then prescribed ciprofloxacin. It worked for a while and I ended up at the same clinic, different doctor, on Sept 2.
Avatar n tn So I would rule out infection first. Stones can stay in your kidney for ever. It helps to drink plenty of fluids etc. but honestly they are not that much of an issue untill they go into the ureter. There is some evidence that the nephrocalcinosis inside the kidney can cause some issue, pressure etc. I also like I said think that when they move around there is some pain issues, but it is not the renal colic that you KNOW is stone pain!
211940 tn?1267884866 I have had kidney stones, in the past, but that was several years ago. Normally, when I get the UTI "symptoms", I take some cranberry pills, and drink lots of water. This usually clears it up, if not that same day, in a day or two. I normally take, cranberry pills, every day, as part of my regiment of keeping UTI's away. However, I have had the UTI "symptoms", this time, for almost 3 weeks now.
Avatar n tn I don't know what the antibiotics were, but one was a intra-muscular shot in the arm and the other was a drink which was mixed from powder and water. I believe the intent was to treat any possible Chlamydia/Gonnorhea infection(s). I was advised to stop taking the cipro, so I stopped. My symptoms seemed to improve somewhat, but I still was experiencing the following: 1. Frequent Urination 2. Weaker than usual stream 3. Painful ejaculation a. Symptoms 1, 2, 5 worse after ejaculation. 4.
Avatar m tn Delaying even a couple of days seriously increases the risk of complications, like infection asceding into the kidneys. I strongly urge you to see your primary care physician right away. If you don't have one or if s/he cannot accommodate you tomorrow (Monday), consider a walk-in urgent care clinic. Please let me know how this sorts out after you have been examined and your various lab results are available.
242516 tn?1368227505 The flu has passed epidemic rates in much of the country, and if you don't have a cold, I'm sure you have a friend who has the sniffles, fever, chills, aches and pains of a viral upper respiratory infection. This is different from a bacterial infection such as sinusitis, bronchitis, or pneumonia. A viral infection doesn't improve with antibiotics as these infections do. A virus hijacks your own body's healthy cells and uses it to reproduce and spread.
Avatar n tn Hi mark I had a kidney infection and my doctor prescribed me an antibiotic call ciprofloxacin most known as (cipro) and I had them for all most 8 days and my dilantin levels drop to a point to end in the hospital and yes I had a szizure, wich I didn't had for 7 years straight PLEASE STOP TAKING (CIPRO) "MY OWN PERSONAL EXPERIENCE THANKS.
Avatar f tn They removed one. Another friend had kidney disease. This isn't to scare you but I would treat this infection aggressively and then if you get another, ask your doctor what the next step is to determine why you are getting them.
Avatar f tn Hi, How are you? Common side effects associated with Ciprofloxacin include diarrhea; dizziness; headache; loss of appetite; nausea; stomach upset; and vomiting. Your symptoms may be due to this medicine or art of the infection that you have. Try not to worry to avoid anxiety. If it persists inform your doctor for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn I went to the doctors a month ago, thinking it would be a urinary tract infection, was pescribed ciprofloxacin for 10 days, no improvement. Urine test results come back= no infection. So im due a scan soon (not sure what type of scan) and any help would be appriated. I think its worth mentioning these pains started while i was on holiday, and im pretty sure i drank the tap water (in spain) which i know your not supposed to do.
