Frequent urination, floaters in urine, nausea. Is this normal with UTI? Have stiff back

Hi. I have had to urinate more frequently and have also noticed white floaters in my urine. I have also had neausea for a week. I have had no pain or burning like a normal UTI?. The doctor said there was no blood detected in my urine but is treating me for a UTI. Is this normal? Could it be something more serious? I have also had a stiff back but thought this was unrelated and a result of running? Pls help.

Thank you for the query.

Urinary tract infection does not always give same symptoms and burning or pain while urinating does not have to be present. Frequent urinating and white floater in your urine can indicate an infection. Blood does not have to be present in the urine to detect infection. It is more to be present white blood cells and bacteria in the urine. In case of any doubts, urine culture test should be done to choose good antibiotic.
Moreover, if this infections do recur from time to time, I suggest you to have checked your blood sugar level (diabetes makes us prone to such infections) and consult urologist to find out if there is no other reason in urinary tract (like narrow places, urine reflux, etc).

To improve your urinary tract, you should drink more mineral water and use cranberries supplements.

Hope this will help.
