Very high white blood cell count in urine but urination is not painful
I have the following symptoms: throbbing pain on my lower back (ocassionally), frequent urination, very high white blood cell count in urine, and some red blood cell in urine. Urine is a bit yellow and cloudy.
It might be UTI but urination is not painful. Sometimes, when I have the urge to urinate, a lot of urine would be released, sometimes, only a bit.
I already had a consultation but I won't be able to talk to the doctor about my results until the next few weeks. But the nurse advised that I take plenty of fluids.
Could this be UTI or a more serious kidney infection? Should I be greatly worried about the high white blood cell count in my urine?
