group b strep treatment and symptoms getting worse
I've been struggling with GBS UTI for a month now. Was first given Nitrofuratoin (which was working) but had a reaction to, so I quit. Went to the OBGYN and they did a culture (GBS) and gave me ampicillin. My symptoms didn't seem to get better so I waited a few days and went back to Urgent Care on Easter. They gave me Cipro (didn't know at the time I had GBS). After a few days called OBGYN and they told me that would work because my UTI was GBS so they prescribed me amox-clav. After a few days of worsening symptoms nobody knows what to do because (due to being on antibiotics) nothing showed on the tests 2 days after previous one showing I had GBS. Last night was given one more med which doctor figured wouldn't work and it didn't, now having to wait two more days to see a Urologists...Wondering what the heck is going on. Am I just resistant to everything? I know over a year ago an X-ray showed a kidney stone that wasn't on its way out, but I also now what was showing up on my culture. If it is a kidney stone, will it keep UTI from going away? At this point, I'm very scared and worried that no one can help me.
