I've been struggling with a UTI now for two weeks, however, I tried to take care of things myself before breaking down and going to the doctor. I have been on Ciprofloxacin since this past Friday, have 2 days worth of pills left and don't feel much better. I still have that not so comfortable catch type feeling in my left side and just behind it into my back. That always occurs first. I have had no fever or chills, just a good deal of pressure with the stinging and burning and at times scant urine flow. However, I've noticed a different symptom this time with the external stinging type sensation, wondering if that is how a yeast infection does? I have cream for that. This is about the fourth UTI I've had since my periods stopped almost 2 years ago. Not to mention the low back discomfort. doctor said if I did it probably meant it had gone to the kidneys and there might be a kidney stone. This has always taken me two rounds of antibiotic with past UTI's and I have a appointment Monday morning to have another urinalysis. I am drinking plenty of fluids with this, and haved been using a heating pad. Anyone got any other suggestions? This is making me feel miserable.
