I agree with Lynnwood that mine would tell me to contact my PCP. I believe it's important to have a good PCP to be in charge of my overall health and it's critical that my PCP have a working relationship with my rheumy. I go to the rheumy for AI problems, monthly blood work to monitor my cellcept, etc., and she forwards all my labs on to my PCP. My PCP is the hub of the wheel and gets lab results and doctor reports from any specialists I see, such as my rheumy, dermatologist, neurologist, sleep specialists, gastro, etc. When my rheumy changes my meds, she sends a report to my PCP, therefore my PCP knows everything about my medical care, including every med I'm taking. That's probably more than you wanted to know, but it's the reason I'd go to my PCP for a UTI.
I've never had a UTI but I understand that it can make you feel awful. I hope you recover from it real soon.
