Hi. Im a 39 yr old male. I've had uti's since I was young. I've had ultrasound scans and a camera to find nothing. The only suggestion maybe a kinked tube somewhere. Although that diagnosis was 25 yrs ago. I shall be going back to my doctors for further investigation.
Last Friday night I went to the toilet in the early hours. It felt quite uncomfortable to urinate but the give away sign for me was the foul smell of my urine. I thought "I know what this is"!! I didn't feel unwell physically though.
The Saturday morning I took myself off to my local hospital minor injuries unit for antibiotics. I was given a 5 day course of trimethoprim 200mg.
I had diarrhoea twice Saturday morning. Saturday afternoon the fever kicked in but not too serious. My worst day was Sunday. Severe back pain on both flanks and at the bottom of my back. Sunday night I woke in a raging sweat. Soaking wet through but not feeling ill. Monday I thought I was well on the way to recovery. No back pain until I got up that is! No signs of feeling unwell except feeling a little lathargic. Monday evening a yet again had diarrhoea twice and my lower back pain was terrible when I got up. Monday night I again woke in a terrible sweat. The thing is I don't feel unwell. Going to the toilet is getting easier but Tuesday is day 4 of 5 and it should have cleared up by now. Do I need to panic and go back to my doctors or ride it out and hope the last 4 pills do the job? I'm very concerned that my kidneys are getting damaged which will lead to further complications. Any help??
