You are having acute urinary tract infection. The causes for that can be the following:
- Pyelonephritis
- Urethritis
- Cystitis et cetera

Urine culture should be done to choose specific antibiotic and until than empirical antibiotic course prescribed. Cranberry juice extract tablet useful.

Avoid excess spicy foods. Drink more water and USG abdomen should also be done

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