Can a UTI cause pretty severe cramping and lower back pain?

I have had a urinary tract infection for nearly a week (have not had time to go to the doctor yet, as I’m in college and it’s finals week) and yesterday I began getting very bad stomach cramps and lower back pain. My period isn’t due, so I know it’s not that. Does anyone know if the UTIs could cause those symptoms?

Thanks.

    Yes. If you have had it for a week, it is possible for the infection to spread from your bladder to your kidneys. This could cause cramping and back pain. You need to get to a doctor asap! I know you are busy, but you never want to let an UTI go untreated. I wouldn’t wait until Monday for an appointment. I would go to an urgent care tomorrow if you can!
