I ended up in the ER this past Monday with what I was convinced was a bladder infection, but according to the doctors, it was a bacterial infection that was attacking my bladder. Went to the doctor yesterday, he diagnosed me with a UTI and possible kidney infection. I’m in serious pain and on 2 antibiotics and generic AZO for pain. Yesterday I peed 14 times between 9:30pm Tuesday night and 6pm yesterday evening! It was nerve-wracking! I’m being referred to a urologist.
My doctor told me to use a wheelchair whenever I go anywhere that involves a lot of walking, because excessive walking can damage my legs. I told him that I had gone to the mall with my 3 teenage daughters last Saturday do Homecoming dress and shoes shopping, but started getting dizzy and very tired from walking around with my crutches, plus my daughters had to hold me when we were on the escalators because I couldn’t stand up on my own. It was the first time I’d gone to the mall since getting sick and I was apparently unprepared. But the doctor said to use a wheelchair next time.
He doesn’t want to order anymore MS tests on me since I finally see my neurologist next Monday. He doesn’t want to order one thing, only to have the neurologist want something different. Makes sense.
