I feel for you. Going thru something a bit similar. I am 47 and have gotten UTI here and there. My symptoms started Feb 5th, could not wait for dr. on monday, so I went to ER, I was doubled over in pain, with SEVERE urge to go and had hard time passing urine. I was sent home with antibiotic that was only 100 mg but after 3 doses it did not help me. After 2 days of pain, I called my family dr. and she prescribed Cipro 500 mg 2x a day for 7 days. I will be done on the 14th. Now my dr. just called and said stop Cipro, you don't have an infection. I am like WHAT??
I told her I am a lot better, but still have the urge to go and frequent urination. They suggest I see a urologist. Get this I call up the ER that saw me and they confirmed my urine same DID in fact show infection but 24 hours later my doctor says no. I don't know what the H*** to do either? I know how you feel. I am taking my Cipro till done I don't care what they say. It is possible they got my urine mixed with someone else? Who knows??? Can you tell me was your pain so severe you could not even walk? I felt like ripping my lower abdomen out. I never experienced this is my life. I hope you feel better soon, keep us updated.
