uterine infection

Has anyone had this before? The problems started around the end of 2005/ beginning of 2006 when my doctor put me on birth control for acne. I developed an unusual discharge, but didn't think much of it. A few months later I got checked out and had bacterial vaginosis. Well, I was treated for three years multiple ways and with different antibiotics, and nothing worked. I also saw three other doctors and no one took me seriously... just prescribed medicine and moved on. Well, about a year ago I developed flu-like symptoms that would come and go. Somedays I wouldn't be able to get out of bed, and after a while, I would be completely fine. After a few months, I developed a very high fever and was extremely sick. The doctor did blood work and just gave me oral antibiotics. It happened again shortly after and took a urine (she did not give me antiseptic wipes) and said I had a severe bladder infection. So, every time I felt flu-like symptoms, I would go in and get a bladder test which my doctor would say was severe, and give me more antibiotics. Well, I went to another gyno and when she took my urine, she said it was fine. She asked if I had been using wipes before I gave the samples and I said no. She told me it was probably bacteria from my vagina but I needed an ultra sound. However, when she took a swab I was just starting my period so nothing showed up and she blew me off. All this time I thought I had bladder issues and I didn't. I am SO sick, and I am in Houston Texas taking care of my dad while he gets treated for cancer and MD Anderson. I have no insurance and don't know where I need to go or how I need to get treated. I went to the emergency room the other night because it got so bad, but they said they couldn't do anything... they just ruled out a bladder infection.

I'm really scared it's already in my blood and I'm going to die or something!
