First of all I have kidney stones ever present inside my kidney. They don't usually cause problems. About 3-4 weeks ago, I started having symptoms resembling a stomach bug (diarrhea) and fatigue for a couple of days, then started having flank pain. Went to urgen care and they gave me 3 days worth of cipro. She said I had a "few" white blood cells in my urine, but that was all. She also ordered a CT scan. After about a week, I started feeling better and was able to return to school and work. A couple of days later my fever started spiking up to 102.8. I took ibuprofen and the fever broke that night. I went to the beach the next day and seemed ok, but the fever again spiked that night back to 102.8. It did this over the weekend so I went back to urgent care on Monday. That doctor said the same thing about my urine and put me back on cipro for 5 days. I had the CT scan and it showed the normal stones on both sides, but no blockages. Of course I never had a fever when going to the doctor because of the ibuprofen. I followed up with primary care and she didn't even check my urine. She said the stones caused the blood in my urine and the pain and there wasn't much she could do. She gave me a shot of toradol and sent me home. Well that was Monday and this is Thursday and my fever came back last night. It was 101.3. Once again it broke after taking ibuprofen. I'm at a loss as to what to do now. Please help!
