If I had a fever but broke it with a kidney infection could I still be treated the same as a sever kidney infection?

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.
