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.

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
