Intense left side pain and frequent urination

Patient

Q: In the last one and a half months I was diagnosed with two seperate UTI s about two weeks apart. They each cleared up with antibiotics but after the first dose it came back two weeks later. Since the second course of antibiotics about three weeks have passed, and in them three weeks the frequent urge to urinate has come and gone. I havent been back to the doctor but this morning i woke up with a dull ache in my left side, and my general pelvic area ached. Throughout the day i have been to pee alot, mostly just trickles each time, but i constantly feel like i have a full bladder ( i also had this feeling yesterday). Also, throughout the day it has gradually been getting worse, i cant seem a position that makes me comfortable, my left side is now an intense ache. What can this be?
