I'm feeling a little better. No urologist yet, this is my first time dealing with this. My GP didn't seem concerned, said sometimes it's just a matter of finding the right antibiotic. But this is driving me insane! I feel like I've spent half the week on the toilet!

I had a BAD UTI once. I was 17 and dumb. Like you had no burning while peeling just bad cramping in my lower abdominal area and pressure while going. I also had to go with nothing coming out. Like a dumb teen I let it go. About 3 weeks later I was extremely ill. Passing out, vomiting, headache extremely weak. The infection got that bad. So this won't happen to you because you have been on 2 separate meds but there is such infection that only cause urgency and cramping. I don't mean to offend but could you be pregnant?? An early symptom is extreme urgency? I had it so bad with my 4 pregnancies very early on. I also had UTIs during my pregnancies.

If you're drinking cranberry juice make sure it's 100% NO SUGAR ADDED.  Sugar makes UTIs worse.

Each time I have had a uti I have residual symptoms that last for a week after I'm finished my antibiotics. I certainly think that your bladder can get inflamed from the infection and that takes awhile to go away. If I were you I would finish taking your meds then return and take another test to see if the infection has cleared. In the meantime, the best thing that works for me with uti's is to drink tons of water. Always have a glass near by and sip on if all day. Yes, it will make you pee a lot but it will help flush bacteria out.

Thanks for all the replies. I'm feeling a tad bit better but the symptoms are definitely still there. I'm going to get an OTC UTI test this evening to take in the morning. I'm almost hoping this IS all in my head. I would love to feel normal again. Almost forgotten how that feels.

Walgreens brand test says slight positive for leukocytes but no nitrates. There have been no nitrates at any point through this whole ordeal. I'm going to call my doctor and eemand a full culture, not just a dipstick test. Obviously the meds have helped a bit but there's still some infection left.
