Possibly: I recommend going back to the ER if your symptoms persist and especially if there is associated abdominal tenderness. Your symptoms were not typical of a simple lower urinary tract infection(which requires a positive urine culture for diagnosis). I would be concerned about adhesions or umbilical hernia or an intraabdominal inflammatory process.
