Tinnitus not serious: In most cases. Don't know why piracetam was prescribed, efficacy to treat anything let alone tinnitus is questionable. There are claims that tebonin might have some effect. Best to diagnose cause & treat that. Certainly discontinue any meds which might have caused it. White noise machine can help to reduce tinnitus to help with sleep. Amytryptyline or nortriptylene can help ?Consult other ENT dr. ...Read more

After UTI treatment my urine culture is now finally negative, no infection but I still have symptom of burning in urethra. What can be cause? Thanks!

Give It More Time: While the infection is gone it may be that there is still the need to heal completely. And there are a lot of factors specific to you that may play a role (activities, sitting, diet, medications, etc etc etc). So if there is still pain after a few weeks you should discuss this with your doctor. There's something called the 'urethral syndrome' that could be a model for what you may have developed.. ...Read more

I have a kidney stone but do I also have a uti. Should i go to the er?

Yes...maybe?: If you have a kidney stone and the pain is manageable, then you should be ok. However, if you think you might have an infection, then you should probably at least be seen at an urgent care center and have your urine checked. If there is an infection, then you would need antibiotics at the very minimum. More likely you would need to have any blockage from the kidney stone treated asap. ...Read more

I have kidney stones, and have had a UTI for the last 9 weeks. Weekly injections of Gentimicin given, but it's not shifting it, any ideas?

I have kidney stones, and have had a UTI for the last 9 weeks. Weekly injections of Gentimicin given, but it's not shifting it, any ideas?

Complex decisions: The next steps depend on the details of your case. If you are receiving weekly gentamicin you should be sure to have your blood levels checked, gentamicin can build up and damage your kidneys if the level rises. Also the bacteria in your urine should be checked for the level of sensitivity to this antibiotic and others with fewer risks. A urologist can help remove the stones if needed. ...Read more

I have had a UTI for a week, my urine is different with white tissue floating particules. I have a history of kidney stones could that be something?

Hard to tell: A urinary tract infection can cause sediment to form in the urine from break down of infection fighting cell, dead bacteria and bladder lining that was damaged by the infection. I would recommend completing your course of antibiotics and drinking large amounts of water to help flush this sediment out of your bladder. I don't think related to your history of kidney stones.
