Hi I'm only 17 years old and I've been having recurring bladder and kidney infections for three years. For the last month I've had constant flank pain ranging from dull to deep that radiates all the way from my back to the front of my ribcage. 2 weeks ago I went to the doctor and they prescribed me Macrobid for a bladder infection. My symptoms did not go away, and my urine culture came back showing that I have blood in my urine. This is how it's been since 2006 and I'm getting sick of it! Antibiotics do not help me, and I'm starting to think that I have something seriously wrong with my kidneys because of all this pain. It all started with an E-Coli infection that caused a UTI that spread to my kidneys.
I'm at the end of my rope, I can't even go to school now because of the pain, frequent urination, and nausea. PLEASE give me any advice that you possibly can.. Thank you..
