I have a dull ache in my lower right back...
My doctor did a urinalysis today at my appointment, wouldn't this have shown up??
When I had a kidney infection, I felt like I was dying. I couldn't lay down, I puked from the pain,my side hurt, and it felt like I broke my back. IDK if it would show up on a urinanlysis...I went to the ER and they had me pee in a cup and also did blood work. not sure which gave the result.
I hope you dont have one. They are MISERABLE.
If you have to ask then you don't have one. Everytime I get one I feel like I'm dying. Plus, that type of thing should have shown up on UA.
If it's just a dull ache you may have a small kidney stone moving. Mine feel like that until they start disrupting the kidney function- then they hurt like a mother! Non-obtrusive kidney stones won't show up on a UA either.
I agree with PP that you'd know if that's what it was! I had one in college, and I thought I was going to die, my back hurt so much. I could barely even walk, my roommate had to help get me to student health. Not a pleasant memory! Pretty sure mine was diagnosed via UA.
Hope you feel better!
