My doctor said that my kidney infection was due to dengue fever. I am hardly excreting urine.

I suffer because of this kidney infection; my left side always pains me at times down to my leg. I feel back pain and other related symptoms. I have been on medication for over four months now, but to no avail, the pains still persist. I pray that we all get well.

I've been seen by a doctor and I was diagnosed with a kidney infection. I've been following doctor's orders but I keep having nausea and vomiting.

I recently was diagnosed of passing a kidney stone which seems to have lead to a kidney infection. Blood was found in my urine and I was extremely dehydrated (due to vomiting). I did have a half day stay in the hospital and plenty of IV's. I have am on medication and have been told it could take a week or more to make decent health progress.

I've just undergone treatment for a kidney infection, the second in four months. I had a high fever with chills and extreme fatigue. I was dizzy and off balance, and I had lower back pain when I inhaled. I thought I just needed a prescription, but the doctor sent me immediately to the ER.

My daughter (now age 10) has had kidney infections for several years. Each time, she gets a headache, nausea, high fever, pain on one side of her back. Usually she has no "typical" symptoms such as pain urinating or frequent urination. The only underlying cause her doctors have found is chronic constipation. Her life is ruled by constantly drinking enormous amounts of water and daily fiber supplements.

A long time ago I got a kidney infection. It started out with a dull pain in my lower back. (I got constipation a lot as well for some reason) I decided to leave it and hope it would go away but it got worse and I started having stabbing pains suddenly, which were probably to the worst thing I had ever felt in my life and I couldn't sleep at all. I went to the doctor and they gave me medication and told me I had a kidney infection which would have been a lot worse if I had left it alone any longer.
