The fever comes on at night only, usually peaks around 10 p.m. It's been happening for 3 nights now and is accompanied by a terrible headache, chills and sweats. By morning it breaks and I'm almost normal except for the pain between my shoulder blades and above each hip.
Six months ago I had similar symptoms. Went to the emergency room, was admitted with a fever of 104--got IV antibiotics, had a spinal tap. No findings. After 3 days in the hospital all symptoms disappeared.
Now I'm afraid I'm having a repeat . . . but we don't know what it is.
In my question and in the additional information I TOLD you I'm on my third round of antibiotics for a UTI, so your answer that I probably have a UTI doesn't help me at all. I cannot accept the answer since I provided it in my question.
Thank you for attempting to help, but sorry, I cannot accept.
Can you tell me whether or not they have ever cultured your urine? This would be in addition to a urine analysis. They would have further tested the urine and let it incubate for 3-7 days to see exactly what germ is growing. Based on that, they would have decided which antibiotic is best for you.
Or, did they just prescribe the antibiotics without doing this?
