What are the signs and symptoms of a kidney infection?

Pain and fever: A true kidney infection, termed pyelonephritis, usually causes very obvious symptoms. One will often experience pain in the flank region (where the kidneys are) and will also have a very high fever which often comes in waves. A urinalysis and urine culture will confirm the presence of an infection. This type of infection may require intravenous antibiotics followed by 2-3 weeks oral antibiotics

I'm getting pain where my kidneys are but not getting any other signs of kidney infection is there anything else it could be thanks?

I'm getting pain where my kidneys are but not getting any other signs of kidney infection is there anything else it could be thanks?

Kidney Pain: Pyelonephritis (upper urinary tract infection) is often accompanied with flank/back pain and fever in addition to urinary frequency and pain on urination. In the absence of fevers, chills, and urinary symptoms, urinary tract infection is unlikely to be the cause of your back/flank pain. Musculoskeletal causes are more likely. Recommend seeing your PCP if continues to have symptoms for >3-4 days

If you catch a kidney infection early enough will you still need to go to the hospital?

No: Kidney infections are much more serious infections than urinary infections of the lower urinary tract (bladder). If caught early and treated appropriately, many of these patients can be treated as an outpatient. If the treatment fails, the patient will need to be admitted to the hospital fior therapy.

What are some signs of a bladder/kidney infection coming on? What liquids should I avoid until it subsides?

Burning urination: The most common symptoms are burning with urination, and urinating more frequently than usual. Some people see some blood in their urine or have difficulty making it to the bathroom in time. Any liquids that don't have alcohol in them are good. If the symptoms don't resolve, you should see a doctor for an antibiotic.

Do I have a kidney infection? I have the signs of someone with a kidney infection but my urine test says other wise.

Do I have a kidney infection? I have the signs of someone with a kidney infection but my urine test says other wise.

I: I am assuming you are talking about a urinalysis and urine culture. Your doctor needs to be made aware of your continuing symptoms. You may need imaging studies like an x-ray, ct scan or ultrasound to look for other things such as kidney stones. Please follow up.

Aching over hip area could be a sign of kidney infection?

Hips?: Most people point to the bony part at the top of their leg. This is the greater trochanter, and not related to the hip. Hip pain is felt in the groin. Neither is associated with kidney infection. Kidney stones can radiate pain to the groin, however.

Can you have a kidney infection without obvious signs of a UTI or fever?

Can you have a kidney infection without obvious signs of a UTI or fever?

Yes and No: Uti is an infection anywhere in the urinary tract and is verified by a positive culture. Most utis involve only the bladder/urethra (aka cystitis: urgency, frequency, burning). A more severe infection results when a UTI progresses to involve the kidneys/ureters (aka pyelonephritis: fever, chills, n/v, back pain, sick). Pyelo may or may not be associated with or preceded by cystitis symptoms.
