Whether the test was done or not, the persistence of symptoms despite antibiotics suggests the need for further investigation. ...Read more

Hello.: Hello. I can't diagnose your symptoms. This complex of symptoms could result from a number of conditions. If you have burning with urination, have urgency or need to urinate often, this could represent pyleonephritis. You could have influenza or another viral infection. If you have urinary symptoms you need to seek medical care asap.

I had terrible fever nausea and chills, the next day I was diagnosed with quickly spreading cellulitis on my leg. My headache and fever has subsided but it's still painful to walk, should I worry?
