Infection but no infection

I have been Ill for just over two months. It started with nausia and vomiting, slight back pain and feeling cold. A week after the symptoms first appeared I started getting a burning sensation and needing to go to the loo a lot. I was diagnosed with a UTI and given antibiotics. This stopped the burning but the back pain got worse. 4 days later I was admitted to hospital with a suspected kidney infection (after a urine dip test and physical examination) and my antibiotics were changed. These again did nothing to help with the back pain and after 6 days I was discharged after blood tests and 2 MRIs with a diagnosis of muscle pain. Upon being discharges I started suffering from extreme fatigue (I was sleeping 20 hours a day) 2 weeks later I went back into hospital with the pain followed by suspected rigours and loss of consciousness. A UTI was once again diagnosed from a urine dip tests. I was given co amoxiclav which worked!! The back pain went and I got less tired. But from that day I developed an intermittent violent and debilitating twitch. I have now gone back to the doctor who has just told me that the various blood tests I had in hospital said I has no infection anywhere in my body at any point. So I still have no answers and I am still unable to work. I have posted this in the urology section as I have ow been referred to a specialist neurologist for the twitching but I feel that the twitching is associated with what was wrong with my back (kidneys). Has anyone else experienced anything like this or does anyone have any ideas??

  • I was diagnosed with a UTI and got prescribed antibiotics which usually aren't used for UTIs - they helped. But then I was switched to a different medication which is more commonly prescribed for UTIs and it didn't help at all plus I'm allergic to it. So I go back to the hospital because I've been experiencing vomiting, back pain, painful peeing, urgency when needing to pee, and being unusually cold. I got tested again and there wasn't any sign of infection…
