9 Signs You May Have a Kidney Infection

1. Kidney Pain

Pain and discomfort on the side of the affected kidney is common with a kidney infection. You may also feel a dull pain in your lower back as well as in the genital area. Obviously, every patient with a kidney infection feels different degrees of pain (in fact, some have zero pain) and different symptoms.

However, severe pain is common with a kidney infection with many patients complaining of radiating pain in their sides and backs, just below the ribs where the kidneys sit. Many also complain of pain that moves about, or travels from the lower abdomen into the back, and even in the area of the groin. Typically pain is radiating, which means it fluctuates in waves of sharp pain, followed by throbbing pain and tenderness.

2. Chills & Fever

With any infection, a fever can occur with temperatures soaring above 100-degrees Fahrenheit, accompanied by the normal chills—so grab a blanket and warm up. A kidney infection is caused by an over production of bacteria in the organ, as bacteria attach themselves to the walls of the kidneys symptoms will flare up, including fever.

Often patients don’t experience fever and chills until the kidney infection is present for some time. Left untreated, a kidney infection will cause a mild to high fever, accompanied by telltale chills. If you experience a sudden and unexplained fever, please see a doctor immediately.

3. Fatigue

Lack of energy is also common with an infection of the kidneys with the patient often feeling so weak or zapped of energy that all they want to do is sleep. Rest is needed for the body to fight off the infection.

4. Urinary Urgency

If your kidney infection worsens, and spreads to the urethra, you will often feel the constant and sudden urge to urinate, even if you just emptied your bladder. You may feel like you can’t quite empty your bladder, like there is fluid remaining, even right after using the washroom. Your urine can also have a foul smell and appear cloudy as the infection worsens.

This overwhelming persistent urge to urinate is often one of the first signs of a kidney infection. The urge to go can be accompanied by pressure or heaviness in the lower abdomen as well as a dull, throbbing pain. However, keep in mind that this feeling of urinary urgency is also characteristic of kidney stones as well as a urinary tract infection (UTI).

5. Nausea

A mild nausea and even vomiting, may very well cause victims of a kidney infection to suffer from loss of appetite and fatigue and weight loss due to lack of nourishment. You may also feel nauseated due to dehydration, which is a common result as the body tries to flush bacteria from the body with increased urinary frequency.

You may feel so nauseated from the infection that you become sick to your stomach. The nausea and stomach upset can occur for a few reasons. For instance, you may feel nauseated due to pain and pressure on your abdomen from the infection. On nausea and vomiting can occur due to improperly functioning kidneys. Keep in mind that the kidneys are responsible for toxin elimination, which means vomiting may occur to purge waste products from the body if kidneys aren’t working fast enough.

6. Jaundice

7. Flu-Like Malaise

8. Blood in Urine

9. Flank Pain

I already gave up on ever getting cured of hepatitis because I have tried many treatment and none was work, I have gone to different hospitals the always recommend me same drugs and it not working on me, until I came across a post about Dr Uwembo on the net from a lady call carol so I contacted him that day, and he started giving me hope and then prepared some herbal medicine which I took according to his prescription on them, so I was still doubting if it was working on me so at a time my boyfriend just ask me to go for check up and I did, so I found out that I was free from the disease, thanks to Dr Uwembo once again.

Using herbal natural remedy was what got me tested negative to HSV 2 after been diagnosed for years.I have spend so much funds on medications like acyclovir (Zovirax), Famciclovir (Famvir), and Valacyclovir (Valtrex). But it was all a waste of time and my symptoms got worst. To me It is very bad what Big pharma are doing, why keep making humans suffer greatly just to get profits annually for medications that doesn't work. I'm glad that herbal remedies is gaining so much awareness and many people are getting off medications and activating their entire body system with natural herbal remedies and they are become holistically healed totally.

Ever heard of - Pemotah Intellective Primacy - (should be on google have a look ) ? It is a smashing one of a kind guide for discovering how to get rid of your kidney disease without the normal expense. Ive heard some awesome things about it and my buddy got cool results with it.

Do Kidney Stones lead to back pain during defecation? - Dr. Vidyashankar Panchangam

Do Kidney Stones lead to back pain during defecation? - Dr. Vidyashankar Panchangam1 Oct. 2016

The back pain can happen

The back pain can happen due to various reasons. In a kidney pain the pain will be typically on the left or right side on the back. That we call as flank pain and it usually radiates towards the groin. As the stones passes towards the ureter, it is the small tube that connects the kidney to the bladder or when the stone is stuck here or passing here, it will cause very severe pain. Very severe pain which comes and goes and it always on the left side of the spine. It is never over the spine or the back. If it comes over the spine or the back, it is because of the back pain, then it is something which is very common. Nowadays we see a lot of patients who are not doing exercise or sitting for a long time. We see that they get a pain on the back. But it is not related to the kidney stones.
