I've been sick since Saturday; started with low grade fever and chills, and just over all horrible feeling; had to go to bed. Sunday night I had the worst headache that just wouldn't go away. I've had several uti's over the years, and realized I was having trouble peeing, so had urine test and it's another uti.

Doctor prescribed bactrim which I've taken before. I've only taken 2 pills, but have been nauseous since the first one. Called dr. and she switched prescription to nitrofurantoin but I feel so sick I'm afraid to start it tonight because I'm afraid I'll have reaction. Before my colectomy I never worried about meds, but now I'm scared to try anything new.

I also have had diarrhea since Saturday; am drinking liquids and started taking lactinex, which I guess we're supposed to take with antibiotics if we don't have colons.

Has anyone had a uti which caused nausea? I'm guessing it's the meds, but I haven't taken any meds since early this morning and I'm still so nauseous and I'm wondering if it might not be the meds but the infection since I really haven't taken much medication yet...

Thanks for any information!
