  • I had those symptoms before, one nite I had really bad pain in my side, it was just as painful as labor pain, my hubby rushed me to the hospital I threw up on the way there, they told me I had kidney stones.

  • All your symptons are characteristic of a kidney infection, however it is unusual not to have a fever.

  • You need to go to the dr! I could be a kidney infections or just a really bad UTI but either way it's not going to go away on its own you need meds!
