My kids have problems with their kidneys. So, from what I understand, if a person has a kidney infection, that can quickly lead to being septic (internal poisoning). I'd call your doctor today and just ask their opinion.
I don't want to alarm you-- just would hate for you to end up in the er if it could be taken care of with a dose of antibiotics now.
