User :   I have been experiencing pain in the loins of my back which can be felt in my abdomen also. My urine smells slightly odorous, I feel slightly nauseous and tired. I have been treated as if it where a UTI but the urine test came back clear but the GP has recommended that it could be Chlamydia and it is feasible for me to have this. I am a 20 year old male, is this possible?
