The tale of the never ending uti

So, this is my life the last weeks. I started having urinary tract infection symptoms in early February so I went to a walk in clinic and the doctor prescribed me Septra so I took it until it was all done then starting having symptoms again so I went to a walk in clinic. This time my urine was so red the doctor said I should contact my Hemophilia Treatment Centre. So on Saint Valentines Day I went to the clinic and got 4 units of Octaplasma, a urine test and an ultrasound. Everything came back normal so they gave me Cipro. So then after they were all done of course the symptoms came back so I went to my family doctor she prescribed me Macrobid. I was hoping and praying that that was the end of it but nope I started having red pee again so I went to my second family doctor and he gave me Teva Cefelixen so Ive been taking that for the past three days and my symptoms just seem to have gotten worse. My urine is very red, Im uncomfortable and im tired.
Zane took me to a walk in clinic today and the doctor there said he doesn't want to give me any more antibiotics because he is afraid I will build up a tolerance to them. He also said I should see an Infection Disease doctor and a Urologist. 
So now I am thinking about going to emergency or waiting until the clinic opens on Monday.
I don't want to go to emergency because its a long wait and the doctors always lean towards some invasive testing like CT scan, big IV;s and drugs. I know sometimes those things are necessary but I don't want to get any scans if I don't need to.
The problem with waiting until Monday is I am scheduled to work on Monday and I only work part time so calling in sick looks bad on me as an employee and I don't get paid.
I spend so much time thinking I need to put my health first but sometimes you have to put your life first because as I am learning if you always put your health first you end up with not much.

  2. WOW ALL THANKS TO DR WILLIAMS I HAVE NEVER BELIEVE IN HERBAL REMEDIES.
    I have been a patient of hemophilia . I had tried a lot of anti viral med prescribed to me by doctors over the years but I could not see any improvements in my symptoms. One day while going through the internet , i got to know about this great Herbal Dr who uses his herbal remedies in curing people from hemophilia,quickly i contacted him and he prepared a herbal medication for me which i received and used as instructed. After few weeks the improvement were very visible. the pain and tightness in the joints stopped and the sores started to heal.
