Constipation can cause the symptoms you describe. Kidney infections can present with fever, one sided flank pain, painful urination and a positive urine culture, so what you're describing seems less likely to be that, but still possible. ...Read more

I'm on nitrofurantoin for a bladder infection since Wed and am not getting better. I have severe lower back pain, nausea, vomited once, frequent urination without bladder sensitivity, headaches, full body pain/sensitivity/tenderness, tingling in my feet a

It may be that the bacteria causing your UTI are not sensitive to that antibiotic. If your lower back pain is that severe, I would consider calling your doctor or going to the emergency room. Good luck. ...Read more
