I am experiencing bladder pain, low back pain and hip pain. The following also describe me: Back pain and Frequent urination. I am taking antibiotics and picked up azo at walmart will azo help? Been drinking straight water

Did the doctor get a urine culture with sensitivitiy? The test tells which antibiotics kill the strain of bacteria. Not sure about the hip pain not related to UTI
