High fever, elevated white blood cell count, think it is from kidney stones? HELP!

I am hoping for some knowledge. On Sunday I had sharp abdomen pain that came and went. I had a fever. They believe I had a fainting spell that looked like seizure, but was fainting from the fever. I was told on Monday that I had a bad UTI with blood and bacteria. I was prescribed cipro twice a day at 500 mg for it. So, I rested and on Wednesday I was seen again for puking and fever. I was told UTI still and little blood in the urine. On Thursday, I could not get my fever to go away it was as high as 102, but had managed to come down to 101 when I was seen at the doctors again. My blood pressure was through the roof at 180/70, when it is normally low. The doctor came in and said the final result on the UTI culture was no bacteria just a little blood. I was sent to the ER for ct scan and EKG. Both tests came back normal, and I was told it was probably symptoms from passing kidney stones all week. My white blood cell count was couple of points high. Six hours after I was in the ER might blood pressure had came down to 125/70, my pulse was back down, and my fever was 99.5. So, they sent me home saying it was probably kidney stones and possible unknown gi infection. I had, had some chest tightness and slow breathing when being up walking around for a while. Any idea what could be causing me a high fever and so much pain? Someone told me they had passed kidney stones and never was this bad.
