I got my first dx of a urinary tract infection when I was 19(35 now), I'm sure I had many, many in the past. So, wents to a specialist and he said there may be a flap that is not letting all the urine out. I never went back. no insurance no money. As time went on I wouldn't even realize that I had one. I would go in for routine exams and bam there I was again on antibiotics. To the point I was on Levaquin and THAT didn't help. Anyway, my daughter went to the dr.
I took cipro for the month then switched to Bactrim. The infection flared back up. The urologist then put me on Levaquin and its never felt completely cleared up (been about a month). I saw a third doc and he put me doxycycl for 10 days. Things remained about the same (at seven days). The worrisome part is that twice I've had sex with my wife and it felt much worse the next day, including my uretha. We didn't have sex the first 30 days while on cipro but started after.
Just wondering bcz I am on the Levaquin 500mgs 1X day for 7 days for a pretty bad urinary tract infection / small stone that passed (kidney) and along with normal side effects like gas, and feeling some tired/dizzy which I usually get from Levaquin I keep getting chills and more tired than normal but it comes and goes and yet my clinical symptoms for the UTI/stone passing are cleared up I do not think the chills are related to the medical problem and really wondering if after 5 days my TSH is
I had no pain or burning during urination. However, I tested positive for a urinary tract infection and began on pyridium and bactrim. My symptoms did not improve so I began on Levaquin for 10 days. Since then I have had an ultrasound of my kidneys, ovaries, and bladder, and everything was normal. My labwork was also normal. My symptoms did not improve and I began on Vesicare, which did not help, and now I am on Detrol LA. This does not seem to be helping either.
I had seen my gastro doc after I had started having really bad irritable bowel syndrome symptoms (abdominal pain and constipation) after I had been prescribed the atomic bomb of antibiotics, Levaquin, for a sinus infection. That was a little over a year and I'm still having pain 3 or 4 days of the week just under the bottom of my breastbone after eating. Just a few weeks after I started having this gastro flare-up I had an episode of a-fib.
Kidney infection typically occurs when bacteria enter your urinary tract through the urethra and begin to multiply. However, bacteria from an infection elsewhere in your body also can spread through your bloodstream to your kidneys. Take care and do update us.
The kind of staph that appear in the urinary tract typically are normal skin bacteria, not sexually transmitted. Staph is commonly found in cultures from the urine, urethra, or prostate secretions and usually doesn't mean anything; it might not be responsible for your problem. Your doctors are right; it is transmitted by any personal contact, not just sex, and undoubtedly you carry it on the skin all over your body.
On the other hand, if there are PMNs present you should be tested further for other pathogens, for a non-STI urinary tract infection, or for prostate infection. You have now been treated with treatment which should be highly effective for chlamydia, Mycoplasma genitalium, and trichomonas. Had these been present , you should have been successfully treated. I hope these suggestions are helpful.
Said he doesn't usually prescribe but given that it have taken Cipro 250mg in the past (or urinary tract infection with no side effects. Is Cipro as effective as other antibiotics for dental infection?
Any medications for hypertension or high cholesterol? Nitrates in urine are seen during a urinary tract infection and may be produced by the bacteria causing infection. Rod-shaped bacteria are called bacilli and they can cause some virulent infection. You should have a urine culture and sensitivity done ASAp as you say you have not been getting better after the levoquin. It is possible that the bacilli are resistant to this antibiotic.
I came in a month before to the E.R. at Highland Hospital in Oakland, CA for what I thought was a urinary tract infection (I've had a few in the past and the feeling was very similar.) They took a urine sample and it came up negative for a UTI, I was examined and the Doctor thought it'd be best to prescribed me Levaquin in a 3 day dose. A week later I was feeling back to normal. Fast forward a month later to after Thanksgiving.
I asked her to ask the doctor if I should continue my antibiotics but no response. When I was really little I had a few urinary tract infections, but since then I have only had maybe one every two or three years. This time, I have no burning or incontinence or pain of any sort. I'm not neccesarrily going any more than usual and I never wake up during the night to go. It's just the constant FEELING of having to go. Do you think that I should continue my antibiotics?
Mycoplasma Infection is a nasty bacterial infection that can cause headaches, joint pain, fevers, dry couch, shortness of breath and a general feeling of the flu. If these symptoms don't resolve on there own then you need antibiotics like (Doxycycline, Cipro, Azithromycin or Biaxin).
From your description, I am uncertain you have any infection of your urethra, prostate, or elsewhere in your urinary tract. If you do, you did not acquire it as a result of the handjob you describe. Hand to genital contact in theory can transmit herpes or HPV (neither of which can possibly be the cause of your symptoms), but carries absolutely no risk for bacterial STD or urinary tract infection. So the direct answers to your questions are: 1) No. 2) No.
I have taken Cipro 250mg for Urinary Tract Infection. Is Cipro effective for dental infection. Can I get another infection on the same tooth?
My uncle recently underwent surgery. During the operation (for a blocked artery), a catheter was inserted for his urinary tract. After removing the catheter, he experienced some difficulty when he tried to urinate. After his return home, the problem with urination grew worse. He had to go back to the hospital and have another catheter inserted. He was told that he had developed a urinary infection, and was prescribed Cipro.
In your case, the cystoscopic exam did not show any prostatic inflammation. Your symptoms do suggest that this may be a lower urinary tract infection. If the symptoms persist then other tests may be done to consider other forms of infections such as viral or fungal infections. This may be unlikely, however tests may be done to rule them out. You may ask your physician with regards to the right pain relievers to use. Sitz baths have helped relieve pain in some patients.
Hi, You seem to be having urinary tract infection - from the post that you have written. The chances that you have - blood in the urine are minimal. For the urinary tract infection - you need to drink plenty of fluids; maintain good personal hygiene and consult your doctor for a course of antibiotic medications.
I have had recurring pain in my lower right abdomen for seven months. The pain has been constant for two months and increases when I have gas or need to have a bowel movement. Levaquin taken for a urinary tract infection seems to "cure" this for awhile. Pelvic and abdominal ultrasound showed cyst on ovary, gall stones. Ct without contrast showed cyst on liver. Repeated urine cultures always show Strep B, nothing else. I am a Type two diabetic.

It can also be used for urinary tract infections, but for those it's only supposed to be used at 250mg. When I took an azo urinary tract infection test a few days ago, it said I didn't have one.
Had a TAH with both ovaries removed without taking antibiotics before the surgery. After surgery I was given Levaquin due to urinary tract infection.

Prior to surgery I had left lower back pain that radiated to abdominal area.
again on Wed., but she said that it could be a urinary tract infection for him, as I am a new partner. We have been very sexually active only with each other for the past two weeks. Prior to that we used condoms as we wanted to wait until my annual check-up was done. Please... any answers, information, etc. would be helpful as I am extremely worried about this whole situation!
All they told me is that i have a urinary tract infection and said that that may be why my spleen is enlarged and why i have a high white blood cell count. i was put on Levaquin to help the infection and i'm going for a follow-up appointment with my doctor tomorrow. Is is REALLY possible that i ONLY have a urinary tract infection? cause i see nothing online linking a UTI with an enlarged spleen.
I check my temp when I get these episodes and its perfectly normal. I do not have a infection or am not sick. Im not even in a cold environment. Everyone around me is not cold. Its the weirdest thing, and I cant find a answer for it. Its like my body is messed up and sending these chills for no reason. Please help.
I waited a few days before going to a doctor, with my sickness getting worse, and my penis now slightly burning sometimes when urinating, albeit still a very slight discomfort (wouldn't call it painful at all, just annoying) I went to the doctor, he diagnosed me with the same respiratory tract infection my girlfriend had, and guessed I had a urinary tract infection since she gave me oral sex while she had the infection in her throat.
Your symptoms could be due to UTI, or urinary tract infection. The infection could be at any level from bladder to ureter to kidney. It could also be due to a stone in the urinary tract. What you need is a urine culture and sensitivity test done. You can also give it for culture and sensitivity in a sterile bottle provided by the lab. This will tell you what organism is causing the infection and what antibiotic will kill it permanently.
It could be in the Kidney, ureters (pipes that bring the urine from the kidneys to the bladder) or in the urinary bladder. Please get an ultrasound of the urinary tract done and that will certainly help in ruling out the possibility of the stone which I feel is high in your case. I sincerely hope that helps. Please do keep me posted. Kind regards.
Hi, Frequency and urgency are irritative urinary symptoms and they may suggest a recurring urinary tract infection. I suggest that you have this followed up by your physician. It is necessary that a urinalysis may be done just to rule out an underlying infection if present. Of course, frequency does not always point to a UTI. Increased water intake , stress, nervousness and hormones may also influence urinary patterns. I know you are highly anxious about this.
