Arrie, you need to take a friend with you when you go to the doctor. You had checked Downs Syndrome and they may not be listening properly. If you do have this then you are subject to major infections. The foley is certainly part of this problem. Go to your social worker or other person you trust. Go now and please get the help you deserve. Ok?
You need to go to the ER at a large hospital, even if it is an hour away. Sounds like your local health care can't handle your problems so you need to go to where they can. And what does the distance matter - you will die if this infection is left untreated. So get in the car and go - they can't turn you away for nonpayment. when you are this sick. Please take care!

I hope you went to another ER that takes your condition seriously, because it is very serious.
Is there a larger er you can go to? Like a medical school hospital. I urge you to do something asap.Good luck,please let us know how you are doing.
You definitely need to be seen by someone who knows what they are doing with the kidneys and the fastest way to do that is to go to the er. You could have pyelonephritis at this point.
If your insurance does not require a referral to a specialist, call a urologist today and get an appointment as soon as you can. If you are required to get a referral, call your primary care doctor and insist on a referral to a urologist. Of course, if you still have the high fever today, go to the ER. Infection and fever like that for 6 months is way too long. You probably need IV antibiotics. I hope you feel better soon.
Are you seeing a Urologist??? Perhaps that is the way to go. How long have you been on current treatment?
