My question: My daughter has a bacterial urinary/kidney infection the doctor diagnosed Thursday, October 18. My 46-year-old-daughter is under extreme mental stress and is living with her father and me. I just found out she was not taking the medicine prescribed (which was sulfamethoxazole TMP DS. one tablet twice a day. The other was phenazophridine 100 mg
Tab. Sorry, I had no idea I had to pay for this. Forget it.

I just discovered at 10:45 this evening of October 19 that she had not taken any of these, even though she said she was. Instead she took medicine another nurses practitioner had prescribed for a kidney infection she had back in May 2018. This medicine was nitrofurantoin mono-mcr 100 mg (1 capsule twice a day for seven days.) Obviously, she didn't take all of them since there are 8 left out of a prescription for 14). THE BAD THING: she has been taking this nitrofurantoin mono-mcr instead of what was prescribed for her current condition. Also mixed in with the nitrofurantoin mono-mar as a two-tone dark and light green capsule with the word LUPIN on one side. Now she tells me she was taking this also. She doesn't even know what the LUPIN is for. I now have all her medicine and am administering it to her.

Hi I am a 28yr old woman with an implanon implant in my arm. I have had 2 children and urinary reflux since i was born. The reflux seems to have settled down and i have had quite a few kidney infections in my life. usually it starts as a urine infection for a few days if i don t get onto it it can turn into a kidney infection. I had pains all of a sudden like kidney infection last night and went to the doctor today and there were no signs of a urine infection a fter i had taken ural but i had very high levels of protein in my urine. I undrstand i may need a blood test to test my kidney function but with my history it has never shown this before... can semen from the night before affect the urine sample i gave thedoctor? My doctor has been blazare about my condition before and am worried he isn t being thorough enough considering i have rather bad scaring on my left kidney.

My seven year old grand daughter has been running a high temperature for five days. She has a knot below her knee and the doctor say it is cellulitis. An ER person wrapped it with an ace bandage and put a half cast that is to be removed at night. She was prescribed bactrium antibiotics for a kidney infection. Does this seem like an accurate diagnosis?

Hello I had a quick question. About 2 months ago I was hospitalized with a kidney infection have been released and have been fine since. But the last few days I ve been having pretty bad pain in both of my ovary region. Today the pain is much worse. It hurts so bad that I almost passed out got very light headed. Also I have noticed that my urine is extremely dark color and when urinating earlier I had a terrible shooting pain through my anus I m not sure how to explain it any other way. Do you think I should go to the ER or an Urgent Care care? Or do you have any thoughts on what it may be? I m definitely trying to not get a kidney infection again so I m just trying to play it safe this time. Any information will help thank you for your time
