UTI: You would have to drink so much cranberry juice to prevent UTI that you would drown in it. Cloudy urine is very common and is usually due to chemicals precipitating out when the toilet water changes the acid/base content of the urine. You need to see a doctor about the lower back pain because it could be due to many other things. Best wishes.
