Talk to your kidney dr. This may be related to your kidney, but something like an infection needs to be ruled out!

Mild back discomfort is common in patients doing ambulatory dialysis or having a last fill which means fluid in the belly during the day.
This extra weight can cause back pain in few patients. Excruciating pain is not normal and needs evaluation.
