I am really tired, lacking energy, the pain is on the right side of my lower back and goes down my buttocks to my upper back of my leg. Urination is frequent but it doesn't feel complete when going.

Hello!

When were you diagnosed with this UTI?

What antibiotic are you prescribed ?

You should start taking that ASAP if you have been prescribed an antibiotic!!

Some symptoms are due to UTI -- some calssubmc symptoms but some seem odd such as pain radiating down leg ....

Inflammation near nerve roots in spine may explain..

I would start with taking your antibiotic of course ...

Let me know what further details may be helpful here

I will be happy to get back with you

I hope that this information is helpful for you

If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback Thank you and Best Regards,

Anthony Bray MD

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
