Four days ago I went into the dr with a pain in my back and

Resolved Question:

So four days ago I went into the dr with a pain in my back and she told me that it was a kidney infection and put me on antibiotics but said if the pain gets worse than to come back. she did do a urine test and said that i had protean in my urine
two days latter i went back in and a different doctor told me that it was kidney stones but he would not be sure until i can get an ultra sound witch wont be for 2 weeks.
well today I still have the pain in my back plus i am vomiting more and just plain uncomfortable . but I have also started my menstrual cycle and the cramping that I now have in my stomach is the same as what i have during my menstrual cycle. But the weird thing is, is that my cycle is 2 weeks early.
Baskely my question is could this still be a kidney infection or could it be something else.
my symptoms are pain the in the lower back. cramping in the stomach and pain in the lower pelvic area. as well as minor burning when I pee.
thank you for taking the time to read this

There is a possibility that you have kidney stones or something called pylonephritis. This is an infection in the kidneys. You did not mention that they gave you antibiotics so I am assuming they did not.
With your symptoms, I would advise you to go the Emergency Room. They can do an immediate CT scan to rule out kidney stones, labs and a repeat urinalysis.
The other possibility could be a tubal pregnancy. It may not have shown up on a urine pregnancy test.
You really do need to get care without delay.
