Sepsis/UTI/Kidney Infection
« on: July 04, 2014, 11:55:18 AM »
I have been doing great for a while, but now, my HA is back with a vengeance. Last year I had a few UTI's with a bacteria called proteus and it scared me. Urologist seemed ok with it, but I just kept reading about it over and over. Well, it went away.

But as of 2 days ago, I have another UTI with proteus and I'm freaking myself out. I woke up this morning with panic. I'm scared it will go to my kidney, then cause sepsis, and I'm almost to the point of making myself cry.

WTH? Why do I do this? I want to enjoy the day with my kid and my husband but I'm paralyzed with panic.  :(

Hi Heather,

I'm assuming you have seen your doc for this current UTI and are now on antibiotics?  If not, please go get some antibiotics.  Also, maybe ask for pyridium to help with the painful and frequent urination a UTI brings.  If you don't have that, go to your local drug store or Walmart and get a product called AZO to help with relieving the symptoms.  The antibiotic should kick in soon for you!!!  Hang in there and try to enjoy this 4th of July!!
