Kidney infection high fever

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney infection high fever


1237761 tn?1285113685 Had a pretty high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> all week, bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. So as often as I would wake up very warm, I woke up chilled. My temps are all over the place.
4943237 tn?1428994695 Hi Poppy, To be honest, if you've not experienced any of the typical unary track symptoms along with it or even just prior, i'm really not sure if it all wouldn't more likely be related to your spine. The nausea has been going on for weeks right, so that's very possibly not connected to these new symptoms if you don't have a fever with it.
362203 tn?1248813910 Hi, my best friend suffered from a really bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> that landed her in the hospital this past Thanksgiving. She was in ICU for 3 days with severe vomiting and high fever (103.0). She now keeps getting kidney infections over and over. Know though she recognizes the signs before it gets too bad. What should she be asking the doctor? I want to help her be more proactive in her treatment. Her doctor said that she just needs to rest and drink fluids and take meds for pain.
Avatar n tn Hi, welcome to the forum, yes, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> can be related to the pyelonephritis. Urinary tract <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> can be due to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> involving any part from kidney to urethra. infection may be pyelonephritis (involving upper urinary tract), urethritis, uretitis, cystitis (lower urinary tract) etc. Presence of Anatomic abnormalities resulting in obstruction, stasis, or reflux of urinary flow all predisposes towards recurrent urinary infections.
Avatar n tn Went back to doc and my liver panel was elevated, my potassium level was elevated and I did show that I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. They are sending me to a cardiologist. I am confused. I feel like my kidneys are killing me. Shouldn't I be getting them checked out? Or get another antibiotic? No fever but achy, weak and tired. Should I request more tests for my kidneys?
Avatar n tn While I've had abdominal pain and slowly increasing fatigue for the last two years, it's never been this bad, and the usual suspects for that kind of thing didn't check out when I saw my GP. The doctor at the ER said it could be a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>, but it didnt look like there was enough blood for it... She also mentioned "Addisons" disease as something to look into.
397460 tn?1268537336 This is the first time he sent off a sample for testing. He says it is a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> due to the high levels of blood in my urine and fever. I am now taking a three week course of antibiotics in an effort to clear it up completly. I have taken note of all your advice and will follow thru with it. Thank you for taking the time to answer, it is much appreciated. Cath278.
Avatar f tn So after a long week of being misdiagnosed twice, I've finally been hospitalized with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. The doctor said the good news is I caught it early despite none of the typical symptoms. She said the baby is fine but I can't help but worry. I'm here for a few more days connected to IV fluids and antibiotics. Has anyone else who's been through this have any advice for getting through it and making sure it doesn't happen again?
Avatar m tn The only thing i can think of is a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>, though her pain her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> areas is not as severe as what it maybe should be. she is also getting some headaches as well but has no fever. Can anyone help shed some light on this situation? she also just got her period so it looks like it has nothing to do w/ pregnancy or anything.
Avatar n tn I got very sick last week... I started out with very bad chills then a high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> (my temp went from 95 – during the chills - to 102.5 within 30 minutes!) At first, I wasn't sure what was wrong, but after half a day, the dull ache I usually get during kidney infections started to become more apparent. I also had some pain in my bladder area and diarrhea, which I usually have during a kidney infection. That is when I realized it was a kidney infection.
Avatar m tn I had an oral intercourse and the next day I experienced a sore throat and high fever with intense headache at night though the fever was gone in the morning but still I went to see a doctor for a throat checkup The sore throat lasted for three days as I am taking some medicine the doctor prescribed me. Is there any relevant cause of the high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span>, severe headache and sore throat with the oral intercourse I have had? Is this a sign or symptom of being "infected" of HIV?
Avatar m tn High <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> - High WBC Oct 18 Ivy, a 15 months Female show some stiffness with pain on her top line and neck, she also had some very small bloody discharge and hard time to get up in her feet, I take her fever she had 103.5 next morning we visit the vet, the WBC was at 19.000, they give her 500 ml Cephalexin for two weeks he think she had UTI the fever wend down for the next 12 days, week later the dog felt good, then the fever then back up again after 7-10 days and show the same symptoms.
1296191 tn?1280703473 The body won't let a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> get too high from an <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> unless there has been damage to the temperature regulator or "thermostat" of the brain, the hypothalamus. Damage to the hypothalamus can occur from a brain infection (meningitis or encephalitis), or a poisoning. When the weather turns warmer, there is a danger of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. During heat stroke, the body loses the ability to cool itself and control body temperature, and brain damage can result.
Avatar n tn At any time you feel that symptoms are worsening (more than 8-10 loose stools in 24 hrs, vomiting, feeling faint, high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> etc) please go to the ER. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar f tn When I was 6 I got scarlet <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> doctors refused to help so my mom pit me in an ice bath my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> got to a high of almost 107 I actually got some brain and nerve damage from it and ever since my natural core temp runs high at a100-101 doctors don't know why it's been 21 years now and I hate the heat I love in vegas too which make it miserable sometimes I sleep on ice packs and run my AC at 68 just so I can stay cool
Avatar f tn After being told I needed to call the doctor, I did. She told me that I could have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> and if it gets worse I need to go to the ER. Not what I wanted to be told :( anyone else experienced a kidney infection while pregnant?
Avatar f tn I just can't face the er another weekend with docs saying no blood in urine, tests look good, then finally doing ultrasound (had way too many xrays/ct this year) and hello you do have stones and a ballooned <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span>. As long as I'm peeing, not vomitting and no high <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> there isn't any benefit to go to er right? anyone else like this?
Avatar m tn I went back to the urologist the next day to have the doctor prescribe stronger antibiotics and tylenol for the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span>. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> continued to rise. Several hours after I left the doctors office my temperature hit 102.7. I got very scared. I was also extremely constipated. Apparently a side effect of pain medication is constipation (at this point I hadn't done a number 2 in over a week). I went back to the er and they told me immediately that they were going to admit me. Which they did.
Avatar f tn It may be possible a stone is blocking your urine flow. that can cause the symptoms you are having. I gather you are pregnant. You need to notify your ob doc and and all other docs involved. If no immediate steps are taken GO TO THE ER. It also might mean your docs are not doing there jobs.

Avatar f tn This may lead to an upper urinary tract <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. In the presence of chills (or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span>), it is important that you seek immediate consult with your physician. You may be needing oral antibiotics.
Avatar m tn Still have slight discomfort in upper quadrant as writing this. No <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> or nausea accompanying. Is this <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> pain, as it is worrying me. Atenolol is mostly excreted from urine and creatinine has never been this high. Thank you.
Avatar n tn In the absence of hematuria, urinary tract <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>, or renal calculi, medullary sponge <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> is usually a nonprogressive asymptomatic condition. Under normal conditions, patients may have a mild urinary-concentrating defect or low-grade proteinuria. Patients are at higher risk of developing calcium oxalate/apatite or struvite renal calculi.
Avatar n tn and since he said my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> might be suffering from inflammation, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> could not prevent the blood from escaping and he said this should not be the case as RBC are thick and should not pass through the filter. But he told me not to worry. Any advice?
Avatar n tn Now it has happened again. Last wed her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> came to 105.4 and remained pretty high through today. Due to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> reflux we have had the catheter test so many many times. This time the office petri dish came out positive for kidney infection, the lab came out negative. So today she had to have contrast put in and have radiology take pictures of her kidneys which show no scarring. They are again saying "it must be a virus". Are you kidding me? The same scenario in 2 months?!
Avatar f tn You have mentioned of associated nausea,weakness and pain in urination. This may suggest an underlying <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>infection</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> stones when they pass through the ureters may manifest with severe pain that comes in spasms. A urinalysis , urine culture and a CT scan may be able to help rule out an underlying infection or the presence of stones.
Avatar m tn I also have back pain on one side. Could a UTI have traveled to my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span>? My back pain gets worse with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span> too. It's always worse at night. I almost went to the ER the other night. But usually by the morning the fever goes down and I am able to get things done. Right now, Wednesday, I am hovering at around 100. Should I go to ER? I will feel stupid if it's just a cold but I am nervous something big could be going on.
Avatar n tn Group A Streptococcus is responsible for diseases such as glomerulonephritis, rheumatic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span>, bacterial endocarditis, and scarlet <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>fever</span>. The ASO level is usually less than 160 Todd units per milliliter. Antibiotics are prescribed for relatively high ASO titers and must be taken along with iron and multivitamin. ASO levels peak at about 4 to 6 weeks after the illness and then taper off. The ASO can be detected for several months after the strep infection has resolved.
