You are suffering from UTI as a result of E coli infection. Since it is not responding to antibiotics, you shoud get urine C/S done to know the sensitivity pattern of the organisms. Then the antibiotics can be modified accordingly. It`s not like candidiasis caused e coli but you may be having co infection because of reduced immunity or candidiasis may be a local infection of the perineum. The dizzy spells are because of generalized weakness which may come with any disease and medicines taken. Take care of your diet. Take rest and sleep well.
