I'm writing this post in help that somebody has gone through what I am going through, I am in agony with a kidney infection.
I have had recurrent uti's for the good part of two years, however it has now developed into a kidney infection. I was diagnosed a month ago now and I still have it with awful pain.
The doctors have tried me on co-amoxiclav, which didn't work, and I am now finishing a course of full penicillin which also hasn't worked. The doctors have sent a wee culture off to the lab which they say should show the exact bacteria and how to treat it.
I went to a and e in the week as the pain was unbareable - they just have me more antibiotics and some cocodamol to manage the pain (which now doesn't even touch the sides)
I am really worried about the pain. Has anybody gone through this, and is there a particular antibiotic that works best? It's made me feel so poorly
Thanks in advance!

Not really any better unfortunately. My culture came back with the exact bacteria and which antibiotic to treat it (trimethoprim) however I finished them today, and although they have made me feel slightly better, I still have awful pain and have to depend on cocodamol. They only gave me a 5 day dose, could be i need a longer course. I am back at the docs tomorrow morning!
