How can you tell if you have a kidney infection ?

In brief: Pyelonephritis

This disease often manifests with back pain, high fevers, chills, generalized malaise and sepsis.
You can conceivably have chronic kidney infection without the classic symptoms, as with tuberculosis, etc., but this is not something you diagnose by yourself. See a good clinician if you think you may have a uti, get evaluated, diagnosed and treated.
