I have a fluttering feeling around my kidney area in my back.

Customer Question

I have a 'fluttering' feeling around my kidney area in my back. It feels like somebody is tickling me from the inside - it is not painful but uncomfortable and a strange feeling. I know I am 'over' tired at the moment due to stress at work hence and perhaps too much wine intake in the evenings (2.5 large glasses) - should I be worried (apart from a higher than average alcohol unit consumption)?

How long are you having it? Do you feel pain by pressing in that area? Do you have fever or urinary symptoms? Any health issues?
