Patient :I have had a UTI/kidney infection since April. I have taken 4 courses of antibiotics and the cloudy urine/odor/sporadic back pain has not gone away. I'm not sure if any of these other symptoms are related, but here's what I've noticed in the past couple months:
1) Extreme forgetfulness - I will forget conversations completely, sometimes within seconds... it will be like they never happened. My husband gently tries to jog my memory, but often to no avail.
2) Inside my head feels hot - it's like a fever in my brain, left side, often behind my eye
3) Shortness of breath - I'm 24 and healthy, not a smoker, but going upstairs or even just walking proves difficult
4) Lethargy - I can't stay up past 10 anymore, and getting up at 7 when the alarm sounds is impossible... I drag out of bed at 7:30, 15 minutes before I have to leave
I'm not on birth control and not pregnant as far as I know. Any help would be appreciated... I'm almost at my wits end!
