Kidney infection or kidney stone. When I had a kidney infection, the pain started out dull. I thought it was just back pain from my period. Then, it became unbearable. With my kidney stone, it was unbearable right from the start. I'm gonna guess kidney infection.

You should call your doctor, it could be something serious, something not. I would hate for you to down play it b/c we tried to diagnose you when none of us are doctors. Good luck tho mama. Sounds like problems with your kidneys or a bladder infection. Until you can get to a dr you can drink cranberry juice or water or you can take some cranberry pills they might change your pee a different color but they make a huge difference!!! Talk to your dr asap!

Try drinking less soda/tea/juice or whatever you drink and more water.  I get that feeling in my back when I don't drink enough water and when I start, it goes away.  If yours doesn't go away or get worse, go to a doctor.
