Please see a doctor-: Your question is very important- your description is concerning and will need more dialogue that is better done in front of a doctor in a clinic or hospital- not in this forum. Based on your comments, further testing may be needed.

Abdominal pain: Generally speaking, if you have been on antibiotics for over 24 hours and you have not improved, you need to be reevaluated. Also, fever that has not abated and abdominal pain that is worsened by walking as this can indicate peritoneal inflammation.
