Hi. A question. I have been feeling unwell since last Wednesday. Lower back pain, general achy feeling all over. Went to doctor on Thursday who suspected urine infection and gave me Trimethoprim. She also ordered blood and urine tests. Over the weekend I felt worse and had a couple of hypo attacks ( cured with sugar water). I have just phoned Dr for blood results and was told I have a UTI. I asked about my CRP and it is 111. Because it is so high I think there is more going on than UTI. Would a UTI make you feel "fluey". Extreme sweating and lower blood sugar? Also I don't have any pain or discomfort passing urine. Am I being a bit of a hypochondriac in suspecting a GCA flare or maybe the start of PMR. Like many I have forgotten what normal feels like. Would be grateful of any advice. I am diagnosed with GCA of the Aorta and my last CRP three weeks ago was 13. Thanks
