Still have fever a week after starting antibiotics


Q: I went to the ER last Tues. with a fever, nausea, headache, and extreme hip pain. Diagnosed with a UTI and prescribed antibiotics but the doc couldn't explain the hip pain. I still have a fever and ny hip hurts worse than ever though the xrays at the ER showed nothing of concern. Should I be worried about my continued fever? Any idea about what could cause a fever and severe hip pain? Should I return to the ER or would it be better to seek out my PCP? Please help me. I'm miserable and have a 3 month old baby to take care of. I'm worried she might get sick too.
