Kidney disorders can begin with no symptoms. Sometimes we might notice symptoms but assume it is a common illness or just normal aches and pains. It never occurred to me that a lower backache can be a symptom of kidney stones or kidney infection until I ended up in the hospital.

WebMD has some great reading that can help you become aware of common kidney symptoms.Kidney Stone Symptoms and Chronic Kidney Disease .

Kidney disorders can come on very quickly or take years to develop. Did you notice any symptoms before being diagnosed with a kidney disorder?
