Possible kidney infection? Constant lower ab pain, side/back pain, smelly orange pee
My dr said I have a UTI, i've had them many times before only thing diff with this one is they found blood in my urine not naked to the eye, AND my symptoms are getting worse and new ones are popping up, now I have a constant pain in my lower abdomen, side/back pain on the left and right side, I am taking in what seems to be a ton of liquids and not urinating all that should come out (maybe?), dark/cloudy/smelly urine, and it seems my urine is "heavier" if that makes sense, because it looks like darker orange/yellow goes to the bottom of the toilet while the lighter yellow stays on top. I didn't even know I had a UTI in the beginning because I had no symptoms...it started with burning/stining upon urination, frequently peeing, and then cloudy urine....
Only other medical problems I have now are type 2 diabetes, and my liver tests came back high (dunno what is causing it yet need more tests), slightly elevated "bad" cholesterol (158) and higher bp 140/90 (came on after I got "sick"), edema of my lower legs/feet...Is this a kidney infection perhaps?
Maybe medicine caused this? I've been on Zithromax, Keflex, Clyndamyacin, Bactrim, Doxycycline, Insulin, had contrast dye injected, and some medication i recieved in the ER for dizziness (dunno what it was called). These have been the med's i've been on for the past 3 months (to fight bronchitis and a uti).
