I’ve Pain Been Having Pain When Urinate, And Urinating More
Possible kidney/ureteric stones
Thank you for trusting us with your health concerns...
Recurrent urinary tract infections along with back pain could indicate the possible presence of kidney/ureteric stones as a potential cause for the symptoms.
I notice you mention that you are on 'water pills' for hypertension. If you are on any loop diuretics like Furosemide or Acetazolamide, it could actually increase the risk for kidney/ureteric stones as well.
It is recommended to get urine analysis and an Xray kidney, ureter, bladder done at this point. Your doctor might also recommend a CT scan if needed depending on the initial screening results.
Please be advised to follow up with your primary provider for the necessary investigations. Meanwhile, continue antibiotics prescribed for the UTI. Drink plenty of water. You can also take Tylenol 500 mg thrice daily (available over the counter) for pain.
Hope this answers your question
