I have been having pains on mostly my left side (back) for about 3 months now. The pains are shooting and sometimes faint. The pains vary from lower to mid back, I know my body pretty well and am sure it is coming from my kidney. Is this something urgent? I have a hard time with being able to go the doctor, so if there is a simple solution to try like a cleansing treatment this would be very helpful!!

You need to see your doctor! Please make an appointment ASAP. Shooting pains are an indication that something is wrong.
