Did they do a urine culture? What bacteria did it show and was it sensitive to cipro?
The chills and back pain makes this sounds like you have a severe kidney infection called pyelonephritis. Macrobid will not treat this. You need to get in to see a doctor immediately for a urine culture and you should be started on a different antibiotic such as cephalexin until the urine culture returns Hope this helps.
