Have your creatinine and BUN checked. If the infection is persistent, you should be admitted. Taking strong antibiotics might further hurt your kidneys.

I had Almost exact symptoms last year and was sent home from hospital and told it was not an issue for A&E.  I actually had a damaged uretha caused by an abscess burstingabove my left ovary which caused sepsis.  I was extremely ill and ended up having a uretal stent for the past year and a total abdominal hysterectomy including ovaries in May of this year.  Keep pestering the doctor!!
