Kidney infection?: Leukocytes in the urine suggest a urinary infection. Pain in the kidney are suggest that it has spread from the bladder to the kidney. Kidney infections can make a person very ill and proper treatment is needed ASAP. See a doctor at an urgent care or (especially if you have a fever or severe pain) an emergency room very soon. Your blood pressure is probably a reaction to infection.

Need to be seen: You need to be seen by a physician either in urgent care or by your regular doctor. You possibly have a kidney infection and your blood pressure is abnormal. Please do not delay being seen.
