If You Think You Have A UTI, Go To the Doctor!

So, this post will be brief and explain my (regretable, I’m sure you all agree) absence from the blogosphere of late.  Remember last week, when I thought I had a UTI and then offered home remedies on how to fix it?

Well, no dice.

It went underground and resurfaced that Friday in the form of lower back pain, which I thought was weird but which went away after about an hour.  Then Saturday it was back…all weekend.  I didn’t want to go to the ER, so I waited until Monday and went to the doctor.

I have a kidney infection.  I feel awful.  I’ve missed the last two days of work, but not in a fun, pre-Christmas, let’s party way – in a don’t eat anything, moan on the couch way.  I am on antibiotics and some other things for the symptoms now, but I still feel it quite a bit.  I tried to eat twice yesterday and couldn’t, so today I settled for some chocolate soymilk.

Ugh.  I should’ve just gone to the doctor…
