Ciprofloxacin kidney infection

Common Questions and Answers about Ciprofloxacin kidney infection

cipro

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!
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?
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.....
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
Try ciprofloxacin with metronidazole for colitis. Stool examination can rule out intestinal infection.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I have had a kidney stone and infection in the past. For the last two weeks I have had rt side back/flank tenderness and intermittent pain below ribs and in groin area. I went to the physician's assistant since my MD was out of town and she just told me to drink more water. I have been hydrating. I have waves of fatigue and nausea (not severe) and have been lethargic this entire time. I am concerned that I am not passing what I am consuming.
Most uncomplicated UTIs can be treated with oral antibiotics such as trimethoprim, cephalosporins, nitrofurantoin, or a fluoroquinolone (e.g., ciprofloxacin or levofloxacin). Trimethoprim is probably the most widely used antibiotic for UTIs and is usually taken for 7 days. It is often recommended that trimethoprim be taken at night to ensure maximal urinary concentrations and increase its effectiveness.
Most often it is related to urinary tract problems like kidney stones, inflammation of urinary tract, prostate enlargement, renal vein thrombosis, certain kidney tumors and polycystic kidney disease, blood coagulation disorders and anticoagulants. Diagnostic tests that may be performed include Urinalysis, Urine culture, X-rays of the kidneys, Cystoscopy, IVP, Abdominal ultrasound and CT scan of the abdomen. The treatment will depend on the cause of the blood in the urine. I hope it helps.

Prostatitis can be bacterial (following infection) or abacterial (inflammation without infection). Similarly with epididymitis, the inflammation may be in response to infection or other causes. Sometimes, too frequent or too infrequent ejaculation has been known to irritate the prostate and cause signs and symptoms of prostatitis. You can go ahead with the ciprofloxacin even though you have panic disorder.
