Venny, wow, you're definitely having lots to deal with at the same time!
Are you male or female?
Blood in the urine? yikes...that's not normal at all an should be dealt with soon. The high white cell count could very well be from a bladder infection..the pains you're having could be from even bladder stones or even kidney stones? The pain in the back could be kidney related.
Did the doctor take urine samples?
Did he say what he suspected the white cell count is from except just an infection?
Has the doctor done blood tests related to the kidneys?
Can you get your family to cook you something separately...without lots of spices? Spices will definitely stimulate your digestive tract...especially if it's cooked in lots of oils.
Maybe the suggestion of getting another doctor should be considered.
Princesa's suggestion of foods is something I would eat...close to things I ate. Try to eat as well balanced as possible...and take vitamins to make up for what you may not be getting.
The probiotics I see as a "should"...there are different kinds.
What is the stomach problem that isn't being dealt with...have you been tested for h. pylori?
Has your doctor taken stool samples?
It would be good for you to start feeling good soon.
