Both kidneys are hurting, pulsing with pain with each heartbeat.

Customer Question

Both kidneys are hurting, pulsing with pain with each heartbeat. Not terrible pain, just medium pain. It first started when I ate asparagus two nights in a row before figuring out that might have caused it. Now the pain has returned without eating asparagus. Shall I see a doctor or wait? I am in Montreal, Quebec, Canada until Sept but could drive to Plattsburg NY or Burlington, VT if necessary. No fever, no nausea, no urine problems, age 63, weight 125. Blood sugar slightly high (105), blood pressure normal last time I checked. Please advise.

You need to see a doctor
This is probably a kidney infection or kidney stone
Both require medical attention
