Brief Answer:

Urine infection likely.

Detailed Answer:


It looks like you are suffering from a urinary tract infection which is quite common considering your age.

I would advice you to do the following

1. Seek medical attention as soon as possible for a urine routine and culture along with complete blood count and an ultrasound scan of the renal system.

2. You will have to be put on antibiotics. Most commonly a Fluoroquinolone like Tab Levofloxacin for 14 days followed by a repeat urine routine.

3. If the urine grows an organism the antibiotic can be changed to what that organism is sensitive to.

4. Drink plenty of water.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
