Kidney infection?

Lower back is aching.

Fanjo, well. Hard to describe, but feels bruised/almost stingy like when I go to the toilet. Kinda felt like a trapped nerve feeling down there on/off throughout the day and on/off throbbing, worse when I sit down.

Last time I had a kidney infection was when I was preg on DS (2+yrs ago) so can't remember entirely what it was like ...!?

Go to doc - you shouldn't take a kidney infection lightly <voice of experience emoticon>

Try to get a morning appointment and if you can hold on to produce a sample for them while you are there, so much the better.

Do you have a temp/other aches and pains/shivers etc?

If you do I would call tonight, otherwise, get on to GP first thing!

Hope you feel better soon!

I was freezing yesterday, but not sure if that was just me adjusting to the change of weather. Had no other aches/pains. Not really sure what it is tbh, but I'm guessing kidney with the ache on the left side.

No temp at all, just cold yesterday and was wearing my big coat a couple of days ago when it was sunny and everyone was in vests hmm !?

Will go to the docs in the morning, thanks
