Comment from: nelly, 19-24 Female (Patient) Published: August 18

My left kidney bothers me so much, the pain I get is sometimes unbearable. My doctor said I had kidney infection and gave me medication. Now my medicines are finished the pain is back. Even when I sleep I can feel the pain, I see a bump like as if it is swollen.

The hospital said I had a urinary tract infection when I went to them for excruciating back and flank pain with chills. I am on antibiotics and still have intermittent kidney pain and I am getting the chills right now. It hurts a lot.
