Dear friend, welcome and thanks for entrusting your query here at Healthcaremagic!
I am Dr. Prasad Akole (Critical Care Expert- and am glad to address to your query here.

The ESR varies widely and also in fever and infections. It is not significant.

The red cells in the urine are abnormal and can occur in urinary tract infection, tumours, trauma, kidney affections by infections etc.

Here it appears to be related to Upper respiratory streptococcal infection and may have caused kidney affection too, which caused back pain and was treated with augmentin.
Keep a watch on urine, fever, back and abdominal pain.

I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily. I would be glad to answer any further queries. Please ask for any clarifications before closing and rating this query.
Take care and please keep me informed of your progress at
Good Luck! Thank you!!
