Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I have read your complaints in details. In my opinion your dull backache is due to involvement of urinary tract infection (as evidenced by dark color or rosy colored urine). I suggest you get urine examination and Ultrasound abdomen for kidney or ureteric stones. In the meantime take mild pain killers and antibiotics.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

This morning I woke up with a starnge back pain, later when I went to urinate it was painful then while urinating I noticed small bits maybe a tenth the size of a grain of rice , Dark brown it seemed in colour. Could have been blood solidified. Twice I needed to urinate and this was present. I went to walk in clinic and no bits when I gave the sample. The sample came back with a slight presence of blood but no infection ?? nothing like a urinary tract infection or bladder Took another test later for more information Doctor was asking for the results. I will know in a few days what it reveals? Any advice ? Lorne

I’m experiencing pain in my back, right where my kidneys are. I am drinking a lot of fluids, but only have to urinate 3 times a day. I have dry mouth, my urine is a dark honey color, and has a strong smell to it. Any ideas as to what it might be? Also, I have been sick since this all started.
