I am Doctor Thomas, a double board certified US doctor in internal medicine and integrative medicine, with advanced training in several other fields. I am a clinician of over 20 years experience. I will give you an initial answer or ask you a question, but be sure to use reply to expert to communicate with me as needed.
Do not do home treatment.
An infection that gets better then recurs in a different form indicates secondary infection in many cases.
This might, for example, be transverse myelitis, and infection of the spine. If at the top of the spine. If at the bottom, pylonephritis. Both can be very serious. Go to the ER today.
What you describe is not a "take vitamin C and have soup" home situation.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
