What kind of antibiotic did your doctor prescribe? I have had UTI/kidney infection, they are painful. But since you have been on meds for two weeks, it should be getting better not worse.
You need to go back to the doctor or at least call them and tell them what is going on. You could have a kidney stone or it could be that you need a different medication.
I had a UTI one time that lasted two months, which is very unusual, but I think I waited too long to go to the doctor, so it took a while for it to go away.
Are you taking baths or showers? My doctor told me to take showers as long as I had the infection. Of course every doctor has a different opinion on how to treat things..
I hope you feel better soon.
