I was recently diagnosed with UTI after testing my urine, PA told me the white cells were up and its classics for UTI. I've been on Cipro for 2 days. I have mid abdomen discomfort, slight back pain and no urinary discomfort. And I feel a little bloated. Is this consistent with UTI?

Brief Answer:
Yes, it is consistent!

Detailed Answer:

White cells in urine is typical for UTI. Urinary discomfort is not always constant. I will encourage you to continue with the ciprofloxacin as prescribed. In addition, drink much water to help cleanse the urinary passages.

I hope this helps and guides. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be. above all, keep me updated!
