    Can urinary tract infections cause high blood pressure?

    I have had a urinary tract infection for several months. I was first diagnosed on June 24, put on sulfa drugs, then because of a skin reaction put on an antibiotic and prednisone for a week. After that I thought it was cured. Recently, I went to my primary doctor who did a urine test and I was diagnosed again with a urinary tract infection. I am on generic for Macrobid. I have had this urinary infection for several months. Would this cause my blood pressure to spike?
