A female patient presents at a walk-in clinic. She has been experiencing back pain, along with painful urination, chills and nausea for the past two days. She recently came home from a camping trip where she and her boyfriend hiked for three days. The trip was great, although the weather was hot and sunny.
Prior to the trip she had been urinating frequently and with some pain, and was given antibiotics by another doctor. She took them for three days prior to the camping trip and was feeling much better, so when she forgot to pack them for the trip, she wasn’t worried.
How do you interpret her case?
