In brief: UTI possible

Your symptoms could be explained by a simple urinary tract infection, but a doctor can tell you for sure if there is something else, like a kidney stone, ruptured ovarian cyst, back pain, preganancy, or constipation.
As usual, a history, physical, labs, urine tests & maybe some imaging could help you get a diagnosis & feeling better soon.
