UTI burning gone but I have back pain for a few days? Should I go to the hospital?

Possibly: UTIs can progress to a kidney infection, however this is usually associated with fevers, chills, and overall feeling sick. Also kidney stones can cause back pain and commonly misdiagnosed as a UTI depending on the location. I recommend returning to primary doctor and consider obtains imaging if warranted. ...Read more

Recheck w/ doctor: After 4 doses over 2 days, symptoms should be better. Many UTIs are caused by bacteria resistant to sulfa-trimethoprim (Bactrim). You need a urine culture and probably swicth to a different antibiotic ASAP, such as a quinolone (e.g. ciprofloxacin). Contact your doctor ASAP. Good luck! ...Read more

Can a severe UTI cause symptoms of no burning during urination, at end intense pressure / pain at meatus followed by blood. No fever. Mild  back pain?

Unlikely: Severe bacterial utis are commonly associated with dysuria (burning). You need to be seen by a urologist to further investigate the bleeding source from your lower urinary tract (i.e. Bladder or prostate origin). I would not wait. You can have any number of problems ranging from prostatitis to bladder cancer. Please seek attention as soon as possible. ...Read more

I have lower back pain and have been urinating more frequently and feels like I'm still urinating even when I've stopped, no burning or itching however. Uti test strip said positive for leukocytes but negative for nitrites. Is this a UTI or something else

I have lower back pain and have been urinating more frequently and feels like I'm still urinating even when I've stopped, no burning or itching however. Uti test strip said positive for leukocytes but negative for nitrites. Is this a UTI or something else

Cystitis: The presence of leukocytes indicates cystitis or inflammation of the bladder. This is usually caused by a UTI which can be present despite negative nitrites. Low back pain, urinary urgency & frequency, painful urination may occur. Caffeine, alcohol, spicy foods, acidic foods (citrus fruits, tomatoes) may worsen the symptoms. Less likely causes would include interstitial cystitis or tuberculosis. ...Read more

Is lower back pain near pelvic area normal, and how will i know if burning in vagina area is already UTI w/o urinalysis in 31 weeks pregnancy?

Is lower back pain near pelvic area normal, and how will i know if burning in vagina area is already UTI w/o urinalysis in 31 weeks pregnancy?

You can't know: for sure without an exam and a urinalysis. It is important to get a diagnosis and treatment since you are pregnant. If you can't get to a clinic/lab over the weekend, you can drink lots of cranberry juice. You can also clean yourself off VERY well, go into a clean cup or jar and check for any odor. Leave it at room temp overnight, if not infected, it should still be clear and nearly odorless. ...Read more
