Uti and kidneys

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi, i have recurrent uti's and cystitis and im getting pains in my abdomen, side and back, under the ribs. These pains been going on for a while but blood tests and scans came back fine. I did a urine dip couple of weeks ago and it showed leucocytes and protein. Been drinking ots of cranberry juice and saches for cystitis. I dont have a fever and not vomiting, but could it be a kidney infection?
