Question: pyelonephritis with burning..... ? help!

 sky1386 - Sat Aug 01, 2009 9:06 am


I was diagnosed last week with pyelonephritis by my doctor. He prescribed me a weeks worth of leviquin for the infection. I have taken all of it. I went back to my doctor because my right kidney was still hurting and I am experiencing vaginal burning without urination. He prescribed me Celebrex for inflammation and I am still hurting. He also did a urine culture again and this time it showed no growth of bacteria or anything. Please Help.... !
