Green urine & sweats: This constellation of symptoms should be checked out by a doctor. I'm concerned u may have malaria and that green urine is actually broken up blood cells from the malaria parasites. Sweats and body aches can be found in malaria and this disease should be looked for. In Pakistan it is rainy season now- right? It could be other diseases too--but hope u get help as soon as possible.

Renal capsule: Kidney pain is caused classically because of distension or stretching of the renal capsule. This happens with blockages (stones) and infection most commonly. A kidney stone not causing blockage or simple cystitis (uti without kidney involvement) does not typically cause pain. The pain is mediated via the vagus nerve which explains the associated nausea, sweating, etc.
Depends on cause: Flank pain due to an obstructing stone can be of sudden onset, very sharp, excruciating ; can come in waves (colic). Worse than childbirth. Pain from pyelonephriits (infection) can vary from dull ache to severe ache.; associated with fever.Kidney trauma. All can b associated with nausea ; vomiting. Polycystic kidney pain, tumor chronic hydronephrosis or trauma can all cause dull tomoderate pain.
Colic or flank pain: Kidney pain can occur as a result of stones or infection. People who have kidney stones report colicky pain that comes & goes during which it's impossible to get comfortable. Pain can range from affected back down flank & around to groin area. Kidney infection is typically localized to affected back at 'costovertebral angle" where ribs meet spine. Muscles don't hurt but tapping gently elicits pain.
No, usually...: The pain originating from kidney tends to travel lateral and down, not back and up. In reality, the pain over kidneys is often unrelated with kidneys themselves, yet with the disorders of local muscles, joints, & nerves. How can one deduce the causes for similar symptoms from different origins? Not that hard if analyzing the onset, degree, duration, interval, fluctuation, evolution, resolution. .
Pain in the back: Usually kidney pain is intense, one sided, located in the back. The pain can radiate into the groin. Pain can be associated with fevers, chills, difficulty urinating. If you try to jump up and down and you experience pain on one side of your back you may have a kidney infection. When in doubt, see a doctor.See 2 more doctor answers
Kidney Pain?: A lot depends on what you mean by "kidney pain". Are you referring to lower back pain? If so, what other symptoms do you have? Is the pain constant or intermittent? Do you have any blood in the urine? A detailed description of the symptoms and signs are important in reaching the correct diagnosis.
Many possible causes: The kidneys are located in the back just under the rib cages on both sides. Pain from the kidneys may result from blockage from kidney stones, or sometimes by congenital narrowed areas of portions of the ureters (kidney tubes), or by other issues such as advanced cancer blocking the ureters. Infections involving the kidney can also cause pain. Sometimes muscle or nerve pain can affect the areas
Blockage / infection: Blockage from kidney stone or other form of obstruction can be very painful & increases with fluid load to kiden. Pyelonephritis, kidney infection, can also be painful & tender. Kidney trauma or rupure. Hemorrage into malignant or benign kidney tumor. Large kidney cyst. Occasionally glomerulonephritis, an autoimmune inflammatory condition of kidney.
Treat problem: Firstly you need to establish that "kidney pain" is in fact from the kidney and not from bowel, spine or back muscles. You need to have a kidney ultrasound and possible a ct scan. Kidney stones, if present and causing obstruction, should be abolished. Stone obstruction can be immediately relieved by placing a jj stent. Treat kidney infections orall kinds of urinary obstruction and bladder reflux.
