Doctor:top on list is kidney infection
Doctor:There can be other causes too
Doctor:How long has she been taking zenflox?
User:she is having such problem and she was given the above medicine by gynec which used to help her.
Doctor:I understand that
User:she just told me that she is having lot of leg pain as well last night.
Doctor:But now we will need to know whether her infection is controlled or not and how long would she need the antibiotics
Doctor:I understand
Doctor:Does she have back pain?
User:She started this medicine again from Monday and till now she has taken 5 tablets.... One in morning and other post dinner
User:While sleeping only she is having back pain
Doctor:Did she have symptoms of UTI?
Doctor:Like burning urination, fever etc?
Doctor:Are you there?
Doctor:Ideally, we should get a few tests done like urine analysis, culture and sensitivity, ultrasound of abdomen
Doctor:blood tests too
User:ya agree. I am going to the same. However, I need your help for medicine which can help her have sound and peacful sleep
User:Sorry. Network issue due to heavy rain. Please bare with me.
Doctor:She can take TABLET Brufen 200 mg
User:We have ZENFLOX 5 tablets left. She is mainly having only the pain and white discharge. Not having burning or fever.
Doctor:But not to many as these may also affect kidney if itis damaged
Doctor:She should continue the same for now untill you are able to see the doctor
User:Ok. So combination of Brefen and ZENFLOX. Am I right?
User:One more thing I would like to know is that does the thyroid have effect on frequent mood swing?
Doctor:Yes it can cause slowing
Doctor:But not frequent mood swings
User:can you please explain "Slowing"?
Doctor:Slowing mentation means the person takes a little longer while making movements and also during mental activity
Doctor:It usually happens when low thyroid is not well controlled
User:she is too active in her activities and movement. However we observe that her mood changes from happy to sorrow and vice versa fequently and especially when there is a white discharge. This mood swing to sorrow results into her anger also.
Doctor:Then probably she is not doing well
Doctor:The white discharge can be due to candida
Doctor:It is due to antobiotic usage
Doctor:For this she can try clotrimazole intravaginal tablets
User:she is not using antibiotics usually. She used to have it in past which she has stopped. She used to take it for minor head aches. This time she started taking ZENFLOX after getting pain and white discharge.
Doctor:For just pain and white discharge antibiotivcs are not indicated
Doctor:Antibiotics should be given after documented infection after the tests
User:clotrimazole intravaginal tablets, is this to control white discharge? Should I take it now along with ZENFLOX?
Doctor:Try to improve her immunity with hygienic diet and pure drinking water
Doctor:take lots of fruits and vegetables
Doctor:Exercise at least 20 min a day is a must
Doctor:Try to getin contact with a physician tomorrow
Doctor:Do you have any question here?
User:So we go with three tablets now?
User:Correct.... ZENFLOX + Brufeen + clotrimazole intravaginal
Doctor:Well I do not think antibiotic will work for her
User:So Brufeen and clotrimazole intravaginal
Doctor:But since she has already started, she needs to complete the course under doctor's supervision
User:Ok. Thanks for your guidance for now. It was a great help
Doctor:brufen and clotrimazole will work
Doctor:also lifestyle changes are a must
Doctor:Thanks for consulting
User:She needs to go to washroom also frequently.
User:sorry. just new query from her.
Doctor:I understand that
User:while passing stool, she is feeling pain
Doctor:Going to washroom frequently is a sign of infection
Doctor:but we definitely need to see the germs under the microscope before we start medicine
Doctor:It can also be a sign of other conditions like diabetes
Doctor:thus blood tests are also must
User:for tonight I will use the medicine guided by you. Tomorrow we will try to consult docotr at the earliest.
User:Ok. Thanks for your help and guidence. It is of great help.
Doctor:Take care
