Hi, my best friend suffered from a really bad kidney infection 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.
Hi, welcome to the forum, yes, kidney infection can be related to the pyelonephritis. Urinary tract infection can be due to infection 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.
Went back to doc and my liver panel was elevated, my potassium level was elevated and I did show that I had a kidney infection. 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?
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 kidney infection, but it didnt look like there was enough blood for it... She also mentioned "Addisons" disease as something to look into.
This is the first time he sent off a sample for testing. He says it is a kidney infection 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.

I got very sick last week... I started out with very bad chills then a high fever (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.
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 fever, severe headache and sore throat with the oral intercourse I have had? Is this a sign or symptom of being "infected" of HIV?

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 kidney. As long as I'm peeing, not vomitting and no high fever there isn't any benefit to go to er right? anyone else like this?
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. Retired critical care nurse with MSK.
This may lead to an upper urinary tract infection or kidney infection. In the presence of chills (or fever), it is important that you seek immediate consult with your physician. You may be needing oral antibiotics.
Still have slight discomfort in upper quadrant as writing this. No fever or nausea accompanying. Is this kidney pain, as it is worrying me. Atenolol is mostly excreted from urine and creatinine has never been this high. Thank you.
In the absence of hematuria, urinary tract infection, or renal calculi, medullary sponge kidney 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.
And since he said my kidney might be suffering from inflammation, the kidney 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?
Now it has happened again. Last wed her fever came to 105.4 and remained pretty high through today. Due to kidney 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?!
You have mentioned of associated nausea,weakness and pain in urination. This may suggest an underlying kidney infection. Kidney 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.
Group A Streptococcus is responsible for diseases such as glomerulonephritis, rheumatic fever, bacterial endocarditis, and scarlet fever. 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.
Hi, all! I'll try to make this short! I'm 22, female, no kids, no known health problems, healthy weight range, though I have symptoms of hypothyroidism, blood tests are normal. Jan. - Came down with worst cold ever - maybe flu, but I don't know. Also had a urinary tract infection that didn't go away with cranberry pills like they usually do. Feb. 9 - Cold had progressed to sinus infection, so I finally went to NP, who prescribed a week of antibiotics for sinus and UTI. Feb.
If tylenol is not helping and your baby is over 20lbs (hell, some docs will allow it under) motrin should help. Jonathan spiked an odd, but high fever at 2 mos and the ER gave him motrin as tylenol wasn't bringing it down. It worked. Anyway, light clothing, don't allow baby to shiver (that raises their body temp) avoid too much rubbing as fevers tend to make the skin hurt to the touch, but go along with what your little one wants.
Many times, he has no other sympton AT ALL. Now, it has been 7 weeks with recurring HIGH ( 101-104) FEVER. Every time we take him to the doctor, they say it is justa virus and to let it pass. I cannot take this "virus thing" as the answer anymore. Is it just me? Am I crazy or is this abnormal? What does this sound like to you? I need a doctor to help him!
I had no symptoms of a bladder infection first. Just back pain and high fever. I am on Cipro now, but still not feeling well. I have never had a kidney infection before so I have several questions. When should I feel better? My fever is down, but still have one. I am very tired and sleep all the time. I had strep last month - could this be related? This is my fifth antiobotic in three months. I have had strep, sinus infection, ear infection, and bronchitis.
i've yet to go to the doctor, but i've been told it might be a kidney infection. any suggestions what it might be? thank you.
If you have been to tropical kind of climate, then malaria, schistosomiasis, Brucellosis and other worms in stool should also be ruled out. Kidney infection, genital tuberculosis, inflammatory bowel disease etc are some other causes that should be looked into. Most labs have a fever panel to rule out most diseases that can cause recurrent fever. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral. Hope this helps.
With fever and anemia, kidney should be reassessed for infection. Kidney infection cause anemia. A urine examination should be done and if RBC are detected in them, then complete kidney function panel should be done. Leukemias, liver infections, parasitic infects of gut like amebiasis and giardiasis and SLE can all cause anemia and fever. Do discuss this with your doctor and get your father examined in this line. Hope this helps.
