Just jouned this group today.
I have been hospitlalised twice with severe kidney infections- last sep and the end of last month. I was in horriffic pain, throwing up, feeling that someone was ripping my guts out.
I seem to have pain for a long time after. Burning pain around my hip bone, and a bruised feeling in my stomach. I already have fibro but this pain is only concentrated in this area. This time I have had pain after discharge from the hospital on the 28th of jan., with seven days of co-amoxiclav. I have been ref to urology but haven't had a letter yet. My GP says it could be stones or inflammation of the kidneys. I had to go to out of hrs yesterday beacause I felt unwell again and they found some luekocytes and a tiny bit of blood in my urine. they gave me a couple of days worth of antibiotics and have sent away a sample to be tested.
I am taking Tramadol for the pain which I take for my fibro but have had to up my dose.
Any advice or experience would be appreciated.
