Bladder spasms: The bladder sits right on the front wall of the vagina. Wilth a UTI, you may experience bladder spasm, which might seem like it's happening in the vagina.

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
Kidney pain.: Kidney pain is usually caused by distension of the renal capsule. This can occur for several reasons....Stones, infection, and masses causing obstruction are the most common reasons. Trauma of the kidney (football injury, auto accident, etc.) can also cause pain.
Yes: Pressure on the ureters can cause back pressure against the kidney and cause pain similar to a kidney stone. Pressure on the spinal nerves can cause pain in the back as well. Try a fleets enema, hold for thirty minutes while lying on your left side to liquefy the hard impacted stool and help it to evacuate more easily. Repeat up to three times if needed.

Flank: Pain related to kidney abnormalities is typically felt in the flank. Honestly though, and perhaps ironically, most patients are not typical. Pain in the abdomen or flank needs to be evaluated in person as there are many potential causes.
See a doctor: Shoulder pain: its important to establish a diagnosis. Shoulder pain could be from the shoulder or referred. Common referred sources include: abdomen, heart and neck. A kidney/abdominal problem could refer pain to the shoulder. Therefore proper diagnosis is essential to stopping the pain. See an orthopedist or general surgeon.
Try again: Epi's almost always are a marker of a contaminated specimen--it picked up skin cells along the stream. Need a good clean catch, and are looking for bacteria, white blood cells, nitrite, leukocyte esterase, and WBC casts for classic pyelonephritis (kidney infection). If ua clean other than red blood cells, might be a kidney stone. See a doctor for testing.
