Hi I'm being treated for a uti. Bactrim was ineffective and additional caused a yeast infection. I started macrobid and diflucan yesterday. I woke up an episode of coughing nausea cold sweat and dizziness that has since passed. However now I have slight flank pain, I'm not sure if this a drug reaction or an indication of an infection that has progressed to the kidneys?

Thanks for the query.
You have not mentioned your age/sex.
If you have nausea, sweating and flank pain it may be a sign of infection in the kidney. You need to see a physician/nephrologist who may do further urine/blood tests and an Ultrasound of the kidneys to confirm the diagnosis.
Based on the results a change in your antibiotic prescription may be required.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.
