Why do I have pain in my kidney area Part of it depends on what might be causing the pain. My kidney. You could feel pain if there is a kidney infection. That’s more likely if you have a fever and blood or pus in your urine. I’m not usually checking the quality of my urine. Pain in the kidney area isn’t necessarily your kidneys. It might come from back muscle strain, a spine fracture, arthritis of the back or even shingles. What are shingles Aside from those you put on a roof, of course.
If you had chicken pox as a kid, the virus still lingers in your nervous system. If it flares up, you’ll have severe pain before any lesions show up. I thought the first outbreak was bad enough. You can get a shingles vaccine to try to prevent that. What else could cause this If you have kidney stones, you could get kidney pain. Then again, so could polycystic kidney disease. Sometimes this is as bad as appendicitis. If you think you have appendicitis or another serious condition like that, get to an ER.
Appendicitis and other internal infections are life threatening. It could just be a urinary tract infection. If the pain is in the kidneys, it is now a kidney infection. And that’s serious. What if it is not serious Then all you have is a compressed nerve in your back or misaligned spine. I don’t want to bend myself all out of shape, but that sounds like I am bent all out of shape. Sciatic nerve pain occurs in the lower spine, but it can run down the leg, buttocks and even the calf. Some people mistake it for a kidney problem if it doesn’t radiate along.
