Dear Rawad, it could be a UTI or Bladder infection, kidney infection, or kidney stone(worst case scenario) and it can be treated. They will confirm UTI, bladder or kidney infection by looking for white blood cells and culture the strain of bacteria causing it, so you will have to give a urine sample. If you start having more sharp, severe back pain, and especially a high fever, you may need to go to an ER, it could be a stone. Sometimes even with a simple UTI, there may be some blood in the urine as well. Look for fever if you haven't already. Some people are allergic to Bactrim, septrum, and sulfa, but there are other meds, nitrofurantoin, cipro, even amoxicillin gets used to treat UTI.s, bladder and kidney infections. If the back pain gets sharper or more severe, especially suddenly, and fever shows up,get to ER, it may be a stone, or a bad kidney infection you need IV antibiotics for. Meek sure you drink water, to help. Patti

Cranberry juice helps a lot. It will help the med work, and helps prevent future urinary problems. Your client does need to see a doctor. This sounds like a kidney stone. Please ask a new question- What helps a person with kidney stones? Then if the antibiotic doesn't work, you'll know the next step.

I have IC - interstitial cystitis - which started by getting one UTI after another. My urine samples were tested after each infection and were found to be ok. If you have IC you sure don't want to be drinking cranberry juice, or any kind of citrus, or acid drinks/foods. Just saying - easy does it with the cranberry juice just in case it turns out to be IC.
