Kidney Infection/ & the runs (tmi)

Hi everyone,

I have just found out I have a Kidney infection after going to the hospital yesterday with really bad back pains etc. So I went in today to collect some amoxicillin and I took the first one at tea time today. But I have just had the runs does anyone know whether this is to do with the infection or the antibiotics?? Being the way that I am I'm worried that it's some thing else :( x

You have pyelonephritis while pregnant and they didn't admit you for IV antibiotics???

Probiotics (actimel, yakaut etc) are good for antibiotic related diarrhoea - take one 30 mins before you take your tablet.

What follow up do you have? Did you get an ultrasound of your kidneys?



Hi Dr Fluffy,

No I didn't get anything like that, basically yesterday at the hospital they put the pains down to Spd, but I got a phone call off my community midwife telling me that I need some antibiotics but can't pick them up till tomorrow afternoon ( ridiculous!!) so I called the hospital because in my childhood I had Nephritis and Nephrotic syndrome combined which took around 5 years to clear. They thought that I should have them straight away obviously because of my past. Do you think it might be the antibiotics causing the runs? Being the way that I am I panic that I have somehow poisoned myself :( xx


Oh Kaz, your really going through it at the mo :( Poor You. Have you been drinking enough water; I did about 6 pints Tues arvo and then spent half the night up on the loo but the thirst needed quenching.

I hope you feel better soon, this on top of SPD has got to be rotten. Keep cooking the Twinlets as long as you can xxx


Yeah not having the best of luck at the minute I feel terrible! My back being the worst even when I'm resting it still kills, least when I'm settled on the bed the SPD feels better!! I saw my consultant yesterday while getting checked out and he's indicated I could be having the babies in about three weeks eek. May be because I'm so huge, I will find out next week how much their approx weight will be. One of the girlies has also decided to be breach so could b c section too but not too worried about that so long as they're ok :)

Strangely enough I wouldn't change a thing it's obviously part of what I need to go through for the amazing reward at the end xxxxx


Oh and re the water, 4 litres of water a day I'm always so thirsty that's why I was quite suprised x
