My pain is primarily in my mid to lower back, right side mostly. It feels like a pulled muscle when I twist or move wrong. I am super fatigued, nauseous but no vomiting, slight fever, chills, and random sharp pains in my back, but I caught this kidney infection early. I had one that hospitalized me, I waited too long before getting treated. That was about 23 years ago. I was so sick, never again will I wait! You only get one set of kidneys, so got to save them!.

I had the worst ever kidney infection and went to the doctor and felt like just lying on the floor right there in the office. I stayed in bed for 3 days. The Cipro also makes you deathly sick. Thank goodness for the Pyridium for my spasms. I still have those spasms in bladder, and every once in a while I feel as if my bladder is full and just little trickles out..
