I've dealt with health anxiety issues for years. So recently I started experiencing UTI symptoms (just lower abdominal cramping and frequency/urgency). I bought an OTC test which came back with extremely high white blood cell levels but no nitrates. So I knew it was a real infection, not just my anxiety. I went to a Kroger Little Clinic where the nurse confirmed the positive test. She felt around my lower abdomen and lower back and didn't feel anything of concern. She sent me on my way with three days of Cipro. I felt better but two weeks later the symptoms are back. Went to my GP and the test was slightly positive. Now I'm halfway through a seven day dosage of nitrofurantoin macro and I'm not feeling any better. Still have some lower abdominal cramping and the frequency. Well, more so the whole run to the bathroom every 30 minutes but nothing comes out thing. I haven't had any burning, blood, foul smelling or cloudy urine. My stomach also feels a little bloated this go round, and I've even got a bit of constipation. My doctor went ahead and scheduled a follow-up meeting for the end of the month. But now I'm freaking out. Could this really just be a UTI that isn't responding to antibiotics? Or could it be something more serious? This is so frustrating, especially for someone that has never had a UTI before. I'm really starting to panic.
