In brief: Can be subtle

The classic back pain with marked tenderness when struck, fever, perhaps chills, discomfort in the bladder and on urinating (the bladder's generally infected and in turn affected the kidney).
A physician can often tell from casts in the urine that the kidney is infected, and a kidney infection may require stronger treatment.

Burning urination or painful urination.
Also, foul urine odor and cloudy urine may be noticed. These are symptoms of bladder infection or urinary tract infection uti. If, in addition, you feel loin pain and /or fever, this suggests a kidney infection.
