6mo high wbc rbc  kidney pain antibiotics don't help ct scan ultra sound cysto clear now burning sensation in kidneys like fire filtering with pain y?

"kidney pain": If you have persistent flank pain (left or right), and the CT of your kidneys was negative, as well as U/S, it is unlikely for the burning you describe to be secondary to an infection if "antibiotics do not help". You should see a nephrologist or a urologist to look further into the cause. Stones are unlikely, since a CT and U/S can rule out most kinds of stones. ...Read more

Diagnosis would include IgA nephropathy, thin basement membrane disease among others. As long as normal function u r ok. ...Read more
