Thanks for the query
From the description of the symptoms it looks like your wife has UTI.
She needs to do a urinalysis and urine culture to guide the appropriate antibiotic therapy.
The ultrasound will also help to rule out obstruction or stones.
She should drink plenty of fluids and see a physician.
Good luck.

hello sir,
Your wife seems to have a UTI,but a pyelonephritis cannot be ruled out.
In either case its not advisable to take over the counter medications.Please visit your physician at the earlies.In the meanwhile,drinking lot of fluids and maintaining good urine output should help.
All the best
