Avatar m tn Sounds like kidney or urinary tract infection. Call doc, see if you bring in a urine sample.

I have been back and forth to the ER and they do the same just put me on anti biotics and refere me to a urologist to find out what is causing my recurrent UTI's.
Avatar n tn As your symptoms suggest of burning sensation while passing urine, it is more commonly due to urinary tract infections and sexually transmitted diseases. Because kidney and ureter stones are accompanied by pain that goes upto the loin. There could also be changes in the stream of urine. Is this the first time you are having this? Or previously suffered from same kind of symptoms? In any case it is advised to get a urine examination done and an ultrasound.
Avatar n tn Recurrent urinary tract infections may be an indication of a urinary tract abnormality, such as vesicoureteral reflux.Other causes could be due to hygiene practices, changes in hormones, an irregularity in the urinary tract, or a weakened immune system. In some cases, it is never explained why the person relapses. Drink plenty of water every day and rinate when you feel the need; don't resist the urge to urinate.

Avatar f tn My daughter (21years old) was treated for a severe urinary tract infection and he said the infection may be in her kidneys. The symptoms of the UTI are gone, but she continues to have significant pain in her back on the left side. She has been taking the antibiotic since Wednesday night. Is it normal for her to still have the pain?
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn Even if you think you have a urinary tract infection or kidney infection the best thing to do is call your doctor all they need is a urine sample when tou get there
Avatar m tn Well, it can be a urinary tract infection. It could be an STD but since you both are monogamous it is more likely a UTI.Generally they will give you antibiotics for it if the urine test is positive. You can try drinking lots and lots of cranberry juice (I actually cured my UTI with cranberry juice) and water for a couple of days and see if it gets better. I am talking about two or three liters a day for a couple of days. If it doesn't work you will need to get tested.

Avatar n tn I felt the same belly button pain when I got my first urinary tract infection. I suggest you check with your doctor and have a urine analysis and a culture. You should also mention to your doctor the pain in the back, I suggest you also have an ultrasound of your bladder and kidneys, to check for any possible kidney stones as well. Good luck!

Avatar f tn Do you have an abscess in kidney detected by CT scan or ultrasound or is it that you have a urinary tract infection and want to know the treatment. Kidney stones too can cause infection of urine. Kidney abscess is a serious problem. Any infection of the urinary system is treated with antibiotics, pain medications and fluids. However it is not something that can be treated at home. There are various tests like urine examination, ultrasound or CT scan that need to be done to diagnose.
Avatar m tn It could be kidney stones, a urinary tract infection, kidney infection, bladder infection, or tears/abrasions to any of the above (kidney, bladder or urinary tract.) Blood in the urine is the symptom of something that is likely much more serious.

Other causes of backache are injury or overuse of muscles, ligaments, and joints. It is suggested to get evaluated by your attending doctor.
