Does it make sense to have musculoskeltal for UTI/back pain symptoms?

Thanks! I have UTI/ back pain symptoms. Yesterday's urine dip was neg. & dr. sent me for kidney ultrasound, which showed left kidney hydronephrosis; then they did a CT scan which was negative so dr. put me on ciproflaxin & said it's musculoskeletal. Does this diagnosis make sense? Thanks!

I have read your query.

Yes some times back pain due to musculoskeletal reason can mimic UTI. So if patient UTI and back pain we usually recommend him/her urine culture sensitivity examination and if needed further scans etc.

Your doctor has rightly prescribe you about tests and scans etc.

Your pain is due to muscular reason if tests for UTI are negative.

I hope your have get your answer.
