this is a great relief; I was worried about my kidneys. I am awaiting my Medicare card so I prefer not to have the expense of an ED. how long should I expect the symptoms to remain? should I rest with ice pack or use it but go on with careful daily activitiess thank you!
I am Dr. Thomas, double board certified physician with over 20 years of clinical experience. I will help you with your question and any follow up questions you have.
You do not have to have urinary symptoms at this point for this to be kidney infection. Only an exam can rule this out, along with urinalysis, and you need this today.
It is not bursitis in the location you describe.
A disc is a possibility, but pyelonephritis, infection of the kidney, can cause pain on deep breathing as well, in fact, that can be classic, along with pain tapping on the area.
See your doctor today or go to the ER.
