I don't want to go to the doctors unless i'm absolutely sure. What are some definite symptoms of kidney infections please?

In brief: Kidney infection

Kidney infection (pyelonephritis) generally causes fever, chills and very significant flank pain.
One generally feels "sick". Bladder infection (cystitis) rarely causes systemic symptoms. Discomfort in the pelvic area and irritative voiding symptoms are typical.
