As of last Friday, I am two weeks post antibiotics (generic Macrobid for 10 days following five days of Cipro with two days between the two). However, I still feel just...unwell, I suppose is the closest description. I'm still having high and low back pain (low is worse), burning when I urinate (sometimes significant), absolutely no energy, depressed and my anxiety level is through the roof. I haven't taken my temp but have felt chilled a few times. There is no blood in my urine that is visible to the eye (I can usually see bright red blood on my tissue and pantiliner) but my urine is darker than the clear/pale yellow that is indicated as a "healthy" color.
Could the UTI still be there, merely dampered by the meds? I have plans to see my doctor on Tuesday for a UA (isn't the first time I've needed multiple antibiotic cycles to clear up a UTI) and when I do he will likely send me on to a Urologist. I was just a little curious about the opinions of other posters.
