Customer Question
Hello. I'm a 30yr...

Hello. I'm a 30yr old female with history of chronic uti's and had one couple weeks ago. Now my back is killing me, if I can I've been sleeping 18-19 hours a day, exhausted, new skin irritated rash appeared couple days ago. Is this all kidney related? About 4 years ago I was hospitalized for 4 days for kidney infection trying to turn sepsis .

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?

Rash appeares couple days ago and itchy skin

Im more worried about kidneys. It's everything I can do to keep the water i just drank down.
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 11 months ago

Got those--thanks

But what did you mean by keeping water down?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Because of my past experience with being hospitalized from kidney infection trying to turn sepsis should these symptoms be something I should worry about? I'm prescribed ibuprofen 800mg daily and tramadol 50mg daily for a shattered elbow military related 10yrs back.
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 11 months ago

Where's the back pain located exactly and do you have a fever?

Today first day the nausea has started. I drink water and instantly feel need to throw up.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Lower back pain both sides. No fever I've noticed yet. But it's everything I can do to stay awake completely wiped out.
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 11 months ago

OK

First off the rash is what's called keratosis pilaris--a kind of dry skin problem but not related to your kidneys

And with pain on both sides of your back and no fever I don't think this is a kidney infection

But the back pain may be more of a disk problem so I might consider an MRI of your lumbar spine

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
