Question: I am having burning sensation while urinating, fever 102F.I have undergone the following investigations
CBP, CUE, Ultrasound scan. Ultrasound revealed well distended bladder with multiple internal echoes in urinary bladder with cystitis as impression. CUE revealed pus cells 8-10/hpf; rbc 2-3/hpf epithelial cells 4-6/hpf. CBP revealed elevated WBC count:15500 cumm; smear: absolute neutrophil leucocytosis.
lymphocytes differential count to down to 11%. Is it serious illness, should I go for further diagnosis?
do my wife also need to screened? please suggest me.
actually I visited a consultant he prescribed levofloxacin 500mg for 100 days
paracetomol and citralka syrup. I am on 4th day of dose, my burning sensation has reduced now. my sweat also smelling different. ultrasound revealed normal kidney size, no calculi. all others liver, spleen, gall bladder are normal.

Should I go for CT and other blood tests to rule out further complications.
Please shall I advise my wife to undergo screening.
a correction to my query I was prescribed levofloxacin 500 mg for 10 days only.
does cystitis mean do I have UTI??
