Opinion please!!! - December 14th 2013, 02:18 AM

A couple of weeks ago a couple of days before thanksgiving I was feeling good. I had loose stool and diarrhea at some points. Sharp pain in my stomach, I felt really sick. I went to the doctors and they said that I had a urinary tract infection. They prescribed me an antibiotic. A couple days later the the doctors office called me and said that the blood culture came back fine and asked me if i was feeling better i was so she told me to keep taking the antibiotic otherwise she would of told me to stop taking it. I felt better till the other day. Yesterday I woke up and threw up. I had diarhea all day didn't urinate whatsoever. I went to the doctors today and they thought that i had a stomach virus. they gave me fluids i was dehydrated and they said that i have a UTI! again! I don't understand what is going on. I never get sick and now here I am sick twice two weeks apart. I have no symptoms either time of being sick of having a urinary tract infection! I feel like something else is going on. I could be wrong. im not a doctor. I need your opinion please?!

One of the worst things to do is to start googling symptoms. Overall, it very easily could be two episodes of gastroenteritis with a UTI. I doubt the UTI is what gave you the diarrhea but it was probably discovered by the urinalysis. We frequently discover that people have UTIs in the ER as we will run a urinalysis on most patients.

Also, did you take measures to prevent contaminating the specimen? Did you wipe front to back with the wipes and caught the sample midstream meaning you started to urinate and then caught the specimen?

Did they run a culture and sensitivity where they grew the bacteria and then tested to see what antibiotics could kill the bacteria? They usually prescribe 1 antibiotic and then a few days later change it when they get the results.

I would focus on making sure food is properly cooked and not stored at improper temperatures. It's harder to do if you eat out. Also make sure you wash your hands frequently too.

They should have provided you with discharge instructions. Look at them and see if there was a time frame that they wanted you to report diarrhea like if it lasts for 24 or 48 hours or so on since you are on antibiotics. I would also drink fluids and avoid sugary or caffeinated drinks for awhile.

If your symptoms doesn't improve at all, the best thing for you to do is to go to a local hospital.

Drink water, herbal teas and loads of chicken soup. Chicken soup helps heaps!

Let me know how it goes in the next few days.
