Difficulty in urination, fever, dipstick showed WBC, taken antibiotics

Hi, I have had difficulty urinating for quite soom time now. When I go to the restroom I woul have a great need to empty my bladder . I will sit there. For a few until it becomes to uncomfortable and they I have to bear down as if I was having a bowel movement and to completely void again I have to bear down hard. With all of this I have been running a low grade temp 99.8-100.8 everyday. I did see an PA in my Dr.s office who said that the dip stick did show WBCs so she treated me with an ABX for a week which did not help and when I went back she said its time to do a CT scan ., I told the tha I was allergic too the CT inj dye. So instead they did an MRI . When I went to have the test done the tech said only the and was requested and she would not call the office to verify that. I explained this to the office nurse and she was suppose to order an US to check my pelvis . It has now been 3 weeks and still have not recieved an US even though my Sx r still there and temp is going up. Any suggestion. Tx.,

Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have acute UTI .

Please get your routine urine test and urine culture done to find out the organisms causing this infection and antibiotics to which they are sensitive to.

Please take broad spectrum antibiotics like Cefotaxime along with urinary antiseptic like Nitrofurantoin twice daily and urine alkaliser thrice daily.and later on switch on to appropriate antibiotics as per culture report.

Ensure to drink more water.To keep your urine dilute This will help to control dysuria.
