Hello I'm Dr Chip

Are you male or female please?

Any burning on urination or fever?

Does the pain radiate down a leg?

And has the cloudy urine been with you for three weeks too?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Just noticed last week
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 month ago.


Then the back pain and the cloudy urine aren't connected

But the cloudy urine might indicate a UTI so you should have your doctor do a urinalysis for that

As for the back pain you might have ruptured a disk with the pain going down your leg so you need an examine for that and possibly an MRI of your lumbar spine

Please let me know if you need any more information
