Infection: Most likely a urinary infection that is advancing up into the kidney. A kidney infection, called pyelonephritis, is a serious condition and can damage the kidney and make you very ill if not treated quickly and appropriately. Other symptoms might include fever, frequent urination or blood in the urine. See a doctor asap.
