Hi,
About 4 weeks ago I was diagnosed with a UTI from having frequent urination and a fever. They took a urine sample but I don't know what they were looking for. Since I am breastfeeding, they prescribed macrobid. My symptoms went away after a couple days but returned before the end of the antibiotics (I had a prescription for 10 days). Over the phone they then prescribed septra. After 5 days of that not working, I went back in and gave another urine sample and they said I still had an infection though my fever was gone. They were going to send that for a urine culture but lost it. They prescribed cipro. Two days later when I found out they lost it, I went back to give another sample. That one came back with no bacteria but I was still having symptoms. A few days later I went back again (at this point I'd been peeing constantly for 3 1/2 weeks). They did the urine test they do in the office and said no bacteria. The physicians assistant said maybe I have some inflammation and take advil or uristat. I tried advil and it didn't make a difference. I don't want ot take uristat because its not recommended for nursing mothers. I am peeing less at night (I wake up once or twice), but during the day I still feel like I need to go at least once an hour. I am really stressing about it which is probably making it worse. Does anyone have any idea what might be wrong? Should I go back to the Dr? The last time I was there she acted like "what are you doing here your infection is gone".
THanks,

L
