Back pain: And no bladder infection. That simply means you need to investigate further w/your doc. Could be pulled muscle, pinched nerve, etc. Try to be patient and keep at it for the solution. Peace and good health.

Is it possible to have a kidney infection, w/out a bladder infection? I have all UTI symptoms, left lower back pain and 2 cultures come back negative.

One idea: If you have a fever and marked tenderness over the kidney, there's an off-chance that you have a staphylococcal kidney abscess. A second idea is a stone. Your physician knows how to follow up on these and other possibilities.

Now its a kidney inf: Ection. Chronic kidney infections can cause serious kidney damage. Follow up quick with your md to make sure this is not happening. Kidney pain is usually on either side of the spine about a hand width from center and beneath the lower ribs. The problem also is you've had antibiotics that don't seem to have worked. Might be resistant bugs that need to be tested to see which med will kill the bugs.

Med Choice: You say you are on antibiotics. If the choice of antibiotic does not cover the infection your symptoms will not get better. The Azo will not help either. Did the doctor get a urine culture with sensitivitiy? The test tells which antibiotics kill the strain of bacteria. Not sure about the hip pain not related to UTI Need more information about the low back and hip pain to help you further.

What could cause lower back pain besides kidney infection?

What could cause lower back pain besides kidney infection?

Back pain: Several organs can lead to back pain. Most of the pain arises from the lumbar spine. In females, feminine organs may also cause back pain. I would suggest you see a gynecologist for a check up to rule out such causes. If there is no problem there, see a pain physician who can properly rule out any spinal causes.

Can a pinched nerve cause harsh lower back pain that runs down the left bum & leg, bladder pain, femoral pain and fever?

Polyradiculopathy: A pinched nerve in the low back can commonly cause back pain as well as pain in the lower extremity ("bum", leg, femur, etc.). If the femoral pain is in the front of the thigh, it is likely multiple nerves are irritated at the same time. "bladder pain" and fever may be due to a separate entity such as a uti. However, spinal cord infection & cauda equina syndrome must be ruled out->an emergency.

I've had bad lower back pain, no uti or infection found. Blood work wbc 14.9, neut abs 9.4, lymph abs 4.5 and crp of 5.8. What could cause this?

Mild leukocytosis: This can be due to multiple different factors and cannot be attributed to any one of these without a full medical history, physical exam and perhaps other studies. Isolated lab values without clinical relevance are most commonly impossible to interpret successfully.
