ok, so im not sure how all this works. ive never been to a forum before, but im really tired of the antibiotics and the pain and fatigue. Like 6 or 7 years ago i got 4 severe kidney infections that hospitalized me for 3 days or longer each time. I adjusted my diet some what and really have stayed on top of my water intake. Now for the past 6 months or so i have been getting them again and knowing what its like i can get into the dr. usually before it gets to bad. Now for like 3 months i have been passing stones. My dr. wants to put me on more antibiotics. I dont want to do that. I want to know a cause and how to completely change my diet. The Dr. didnt want to even do an x ray or blood work. I have passed 10 stones the last 3 months. 4 of them in the last month, and since the last ones i have had consistant pain and fatigue. Its affecting my job and my ability to be a mom and wife. Always feel terrible, almost nauseated all the time, and just blah. dizzy light headed, cant always think clear. and it just hurts. How do i get my Dr. to refer me to a specialist instead of treating it like another infection????
