UTI or Kidney Infection ?

Hello, three days ago, I was feeling pain in my back, no burning or pain when urinating, but a fullness in the bladder. I went to the clinic and a urine sample was taken. The doctor stated that I had blood and pus present in my urine. He is treating me for a U.T.I. What concerns me is that I do not have pain or burning when urinating. I can't physically see blood in my urine. Well, it has been three days on Cipro and I really do not feel any better. My back is still achy and I feel nauseous and extremely tired. What are your thoughts? Thank you.

Hi.. Presence of pus cells in the urine is a feature of urine infection.. And it is not necessary that you have to physically see blood in the urine if you find blood under the microscope.. Urine infections can cause kidney stone which may also be an cause.. I think you may need few more investigations like an KUB X Ray or an ultrasound test and urine culture test for appropriate treatment.. Discuss with your doctors...
