I think I've had a UTI for the last 2-4 weeks. No real symptoms other than night sweats, urgency. But I just chalked it up to being post menopausal and being on a really stressful schedule. This weekend I began having painful urination with a poor stream (dribbles, really) and put it all together. I'm now on Macrobid (nitrofurantoin) - which usually exhausts me. The fact that I feel so much better with *more energy* emphasizes to myself how sick I was.

When people say that infection response decreases with age, they mean it. Very weird experience.

Does "infection response decreases with age" mean that symptoms rising from infection are slighter and vaguer?
