Doctor :   what more symptoms are you experiencing ?
User :   nothing else
User :   and why am i dripping blood like i am having a peried
Doctor :   alprim is a very strong and and sensitive medication . your history of discomfort after taking the medication co relates with a allergic reaction to it.
Doctor :   first of all stop taking the medication
User :   i had it b4 starting it too
Doctor :   UTI can present as vaginal bleeding
User :   really
Doctor :   but the medication if causing breathlessness should be avoided
Doctor :   your doctor will prescribe you another set of antibiotics
User :   why do u get bleeding with it and could i get kidney faliure
Doctor :   no dont worry, kidney failure is not something that you will get with a single attack of UTI
Doctor :   i want you to do the following
User :   i have had uti like 4 to 6 times this years'
Doctor :   1) Have plenty of water in a day, as this would help in diluting and flushing out the unwanted substances from the body.
Doctor :   2) Drinking cranberry juice is another effective way to treat urinary tract infection.
Doctor :   UTI is a very common condition
Doctor :   were you on ALPRIM before ?
Doctor :   3) It is essential that you strengthen your immune system. One of the best ways to do this is to eat at least 5-7 servings of fruits and vegetables every day. This will ensure that you are getting enough vitamin C, which will build up your immunity. This will help your body fight off the urinary infection.
Doctor :   do you have any abdominal pain ?
User :   alittle bit of pain after the burning sansation
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   any fever >?
User :   no why
Doctor :   it can accompany
Doctor :   well now your action should be to stop the medication. and go to your physician and get your self prescribed another antibiotic
Doctor :   also you need to add yogurt to your diet. Eating yogurt will raise the levels of beneficial bacteria in your digestive tract. This will help your body fight off a urinary infection much more efficiently. Also, if you have used antibiotics recently, yogurt will replace the beneficial bacteria that antibiotics kill.
Doctor :   i hope you are following me ?

User :   you aint listening can i please speak to another doctor
Doctor :   your symptoms are getting worst. and its nothing wrong in just taking a precaution
Doctor :   i am right here listening to you
Doctor :   referring to all my medical data base at the same time to provide you with the correct information
User :   i said its not the aintibotics that are making me breathless as i got breathless b4 taking the meds
User :   how long b4 the alprim starts to work for me
Doctor :   but at the same time the pain and bleeding should not increase
Doctor :   thats why i was asking you
Doctor :   it will take 2 days for the drug to be start working
Doctor :   your mentioning of the fact that the bleeding is there, is a concern enough for me to advice you to get a physical again
Doctor :   since how many days you have noticed this bleeding ?
Doctor :   do you have any other medical problem ?
Doctor :   are you with me ?
Doctor :   are you there ?
User :   why see the doctor again with the bleeding coming out
User :   u said it was normal
Doctor :   let me call you
Doctor :   and explain
User :   no dont call me
User :   u said it was normal to have the red bleeding
Doctor :   we were trying your number as a courtesy to help you but your number was not going thru
User :   i dont know then
Doctor :   ok let me explain you from the beginning
User :   having phone problems
User :   ok
Doctor :   now when women have UTI, there are certain signs and symptoms that occur, which include burning when urinating also some bleeeding
Doctor :   so as a symptom when you said you are bleeding i told you NOT in the context that its normal
Doctor :   i am sorry if you didnt understood me
Doctor :   but i was trying to tell you that yes it is seen in UTI
Doctor :   i mean its how UTI can present
User :   is it dangerous to have the bleeding red when urinating
User :   why u say go and see my doctor then
Doctor :   and burning when urinating is a classic symptom of a UTI , the only reason i wanted you to see your doctor was that after taking a antibiotic course when ever a patient esp after the first dose complains of more uneasiness
Doctor :   in our differential diagnosis we do start to consider that the patient might not be able to handle the antibiotic properly
User :   what u mean esp after first dose coplains of more unesiness what u mean by that
Doctor :   you told me that you took alpim and the next morning IT GOT WORSE
Doctor :   thats what i mean
Doctor :   that you were not feeling better BUT infact you were feeling worse the next day
User :   no i said i got the tablets today and yesterday it started and today i started the aintibotics
Doctor :   ok

Doctor :   now let me just clear all your doubts one by one as we are on the same page
User :   ok
Doctor :   to begin with like you had told me that a urine sample was taken so that confirms the presence of infection, what you are experiencing is a acute attack

User :   and when i move i burp is that normal

User :   yes
Doctor :   well i dont see it as anything to worry about, it will go away on its own. sometimes a irritation in the throat can cause this sensation

Doctor :   its nothing serious and you have nothing to worry about
