In brief: Pain / fever
Pain in the kidney area and fever are suggestive of pyelonephritis.
This can be a very serious infection causing other systemic signs such as nausea, weakness, lightheadedness, etc. This type of infection is diagnosed with a urine culture, some blood work and occasionally radiology examination. It might require IV or long term oral antibiotics.
