Hello and welcome to HCM.
Thank you for your query.
It does look more like a urinary tract infection
, although I wish the doctor would have suggested a urine culture examination.
The purpose of this particular test is to detect an infection and find the most suitable bacteria to treat your infection. Lower abdominal pain
and lower back pain
are all related to the same condition.
Please consume plenty of water, even cranberry juice is said to help to a certain extent.
Please visit a doctor and request for a urine culture. Blindly treating an infection without knowing susceptibility or resistance of an individual to a particular bacteria is like taking a shot in the dark.
I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.
