About a year ago, I thought I had a UTI with frequent urination and burning. I got a test of my urine done and the doctor said nothing looked off. Eventually I went to the hospital and found out that I had a UTI. I took an antibiotic that helped but the infection came back several times. One doctor said I had a residual lung infection and a UTI so I took an antibiotic to treat both. That worked to lessen the pain.

But not quite a year later I still have pain underneath my ribs in my back and the urination comes out too often but in little spirts. I do not currently have a UTI. I've been to a urologist to treat the frequent urination. The ultra-sound looked normal of my back and abdomin. What could be causing this continued upper back pain behind my ribs on either side? Any suggestions?
