Spotting, burning after urination, lower backache, no kidney infections. What could this be?

I started my period 8 days late. Its lasted 2 days. Ive taken f pregnancy test and had the ER test me and all came back negative. I went to the ER bc Ive been having shooting pains in my lower back. Some days I dont have shooting pains but the days I do its about a 4, 10 being the worst. Anyways I really thought i had a kidney infections so I went to the ER and they took a urine sample and came back no infections. Its been going on about 3 wks now where my lower back feels achy everyday, shooting pains some days, urgency to pee. Ive been drinking CB juice and water and took Azos and that seems to help a little. But now im starting to burn after I pee, not during. And Sometimes when I wipe there is a little brownish blood on the TP. When i went to the ER yesterday they said thre was blood in my urine but they said it was most likely from my period since I was just coming off of it. Question is why am I seeing a little blood when i wipe. Im not wearing a pad bc Im not bleeding anymore, its just after i pee.

Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

A few things I would like to highlight from your query before suggesting a diagnosis:
-You respond to Azos, which is an antibiotic
-Burning after urination or while urinating
-Lower back pain
-Urgency to urinate
-Spotting after urinating

Let me inform you that all these are symptoms of a urinary tract infection (UTI), pregnancy or a bladder infection called interstitial cystitis.

As you have ruled out pregnancy, the other two are quite similar in their presentation, which is why I shall list a few of the most common symptoms out for you, they are:
-Burning sensation while urinating
-Frequent urination
-Increased urge to urinate, but less amount of urine passed
-Lower abdominal and/or flank region pain
-Itching around the genitals
-Blood in urine or immediately after (not always seen)

As you must know, you do not have all the symptoms, and it is not necessary for all the symptoms to be present in one individual.

Now coming to your urine report, as it was first reported that you did not have an infection, this must have been a urine analysis, which at times can report a false-negative report. I would thus recommend a urine culture examination, which is more accurate and will provide a lot of additional information that will aid in your treatment.

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.

Best wishes.
