[AGE: 20


PAST DIAGNOSES: UTI'S (but not lately).



CURRENT MEDICATION: Nothing but asprin.

Ok..well about a week ago I noticed that I was urinating more frequently. 2 sometimes 3 times an hour. Well now that has stopped but a couple of days ago I noticed that my urine is a cloudy white color and it still is. Plus I'm having left lower back pain. What could be going on? I've had UTI'a before but there was always a burning sensation with that. With this there's not.

User avatar Dear mary 20

what you have described could be cystitis, a bladder infection or kidney infection since you have described a flank pain too.

i advise you to see a physician, because you might be needing an antibiotic. Do not ignore it, as it might lead to further complications.
thank you , and i hope you feel better
