How Long Does a UTI Last
A few days ago, I suddenly had to pee millions of times for a few hours. The next day, that was better but I had cramp-like feelings in my lower abdomen and lower back all day. Research and talking to some friends all seemed to indicate a UTI/bladder infection.
I happened to have an appointment with my gyno yesterday, so I decided to ask her to check for the UTI. I gave a urine sample, sure enough she said there was blood in there, so it "may be" an infection but she was sending the urine to the lab as well. In the meantime, she put me on Macrobid antibiotics for 5 days (2 a day for 5 days). This was only yesterday, so I've only taken it 3 times already.
I'm just wondering, because most of yesterday I had no lower back pain at all, but later on I did, and now I have it again. Is that still normal to have the back pain, and is it normal for it to continue a few days longer?
Oh and also, is it possible to be really tired from a UTI as well? Because this past week, I have been falling asleep really early and still being a bit tired the next day. Right now it's 6:00 am and I'm only awake because I fell asleep last night at 8:00, that's not like me at all!
