: 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.
The doctor office is closed right now but i will call first thing in the morning. Is there any other sypmtoms that come with a kindey infection?
