I cant seem to find that answears im looking for and i cant see a specialist for a month....jm is where i always turn but ive never seen this board before...hopefully i cant find someone here that can relate.

when i was 5 month pg i had a really bad kidney infection. terrible pain, fever, body aches, frequent urinations, not alot of urine. treated with antibiotics finally. (at first they thought i was being a hypocondriac first time mom!!!)

i got my second kidney infection almost 4 weeks after my daughter was born. Same thing, but was so bad i ended up in the ER. they gave me alot of medicine and fluids.

about 2 months later, about 3 weeks ago, i got another. i could feel the tingly pain that starts. so i called my dr and said i needed the antibiotics immediately before the weekend. she thought i was crazy that i "KNEW" that i had an infection but i did and was treated. felt lousy for a week but didnt get a severe as the last because i caught it early.

now just yesterday i started to get "that feeling" again.

let me explain the other half too though. last year in aug i had surgery and was diagnosed with IC. (intersticail cystitis, SP?) a bladder disorder. i got pg about a week after that :/ so i was never treated...
now these kidney infection and very frequent and it is draining. i can barely move to take care of my daughter. the dr's arnt taking me seriously and getting me answers. the Ic give me symtoms just like a uti so i cant tell the differnece between my "normal" symptoms and an infection.

has anyone else ever dealt with this? what should i do?

Link to some uti info I posted a while ago . Ask your doc to send you to a urologist. My urologist helped me a lot. I have been kidney infection free for almost a year
