Hello and welcome to e health forum.

The presence of E coli in the urine culture indicates a urine infection, which may be the cause of your back ache.

You might consult with your doctor, with the report, so that he can prescribe you a proper course of antibiotics. This will help clear the urinary infection and hence your symptoms.

In the mean time, you can take Over the counter pills like tylenol or Advil, to relieve your pain and discomfort.
