I would go back to the GPs Phono...back ache does seem a strong indicator of kidney infection...poor you, you are really in the wars lately!!!

You can have really bad stomach pains, temp, passing out, pain when you need to wee, not being able to wee etc.

I have had loads.

Unbelievably painful. Back pain and feeling very hot (IME). Had one in first preg and was honestly probably the most pain I have ever felt. Was crawling to the cab. Which is why I thought I had a kidney infection again this time when in fact I was in later stages of labour blush! (in my defense, contractions never properly started... even the dr thought it was uti)

Poor you - def go back to doctors.

I would say no bad pain is a good sign grin

They are horrid.
The very first bad one I had was mistaken for a miscarriage and then appendictis hmm

Ah kidney infections, something i am a pro at! I have had hundreds since i had ds2, he kicked the crap (or wee) out my kidney when i was pregnant and it hasn't worked properly since!

Mine start with painfull. Sudden uncontrolable urge to wee, fever and ache in back which gets worse quite quickly. Also get the ocassional bout of vomitting with them. See your gp again they can turn quite bad quickly. You don't want to be hospitalised!"

Feel better soon
