I'm sorry if you felt a little brow-beaten by getting so many responses saying the same thing.
Often, in online forums, harmful suggestions can also be provided. If you were somewhat niaive you might not realise which response is best. So this is why sometimes people will respond with something even if someone else has already said it - so the bulk of the answers you get are providing you with a helpful and useful response.
Please remember everyone's only here to help! Nobody wants to hurt you here. Nobody's trying to make you feel bad, just answer your question.
Glad to hear your doctor was able to clear that up for you. Your body is under stress and exercise also is a stressor, so resting a bit or taking your routine down a notch may allow you to recoup faster. I would just listen to your body and do what you feel up to. A few days rest will be fine in the long run of your journey. And I really hope you do feel better soon. I'm sorry if I upset you.

Ok people, you can stop lambasting me now. I got it after the first one, I was just looking for someone to relate to my experience.
My doctor said exercise was at my discretion. so there you go.

While the SparkPeople Community is great at offering general advice and recommendations, when it comes to questions related to your health, your doctor is the best source of advice as he/she is most familiar with you and your medical background.
I absolutely agree. The types of questions you asked are not able to be answered by well-meaning internet strangers. You need to talk to your GP.

Unfortunately, no one here is equipped to advise you regarding a medical condition. I would write down these questions (or have your post here in front of you!) and call your doctor's office to ask these specifics.

Hoping someone has some experience to offer me here...
I thought I had the flu as I have been feeling miserable since mid last week: fever, nausea etc. As I was sitting at the doctors the back pain started and by the time he saw me, he confirmed what I had figured out - Kidney Infection.
This will be my second one exactly almost a year apart. I once again failed to ask him about work and exercise.
I did some exercise on Saturday and Sunday and seemed to tolerate it well - am I ok to keep going?
I am on antibiotics for a week. I know kidneys are not to be messed with, do I go in to work or take it easy?
My concern is: if I don't take the time now, and days pass and I need it later does that seem better or worse for my employer (and my health)
I feel poopy but did work last week and today like this, so I am capable of it...(though I did sweat through my clothes today, gross!)
Thanks everyone in advance for your feedback and comments. I appreciate your experiences!
