    This started out with a lot of right hip & lower back pain and has progressed to frequent urination.  I sometimes feel a cramp, slight fever, and chills @ times. Around my kidney on the right side I feel sore; I am fatigued, headachy, with a still and sore neck.  My mid and lower back are also painful. Sometimes my eyes hurt and at times I feel sick, with no energy.

    If you really feel like you have pyelonephritis (kidney infection) you  need to see your doctor ASAP. Sometimes people can have chronic pyelonephritis which does not present with acute symptoms. Our kidneys can take a lot of damage before symptoms of this damage become evident.
