    I have a uti and such bad kidney pain that I can hardly move, I cant bend down and it hurts more than I can explain. the pain comes and goes like contractions.I went to the er last night and they didnt run anything other than a urinalisis which mostly came up inconclusive except high wbc count and high rbc count. Dr was rude wouldnt listen and did no other test gave me a shot of anti-biotics and sent me on my way with motrin. im nasous, have headaches and Im not sure if its all just related to uti. Its really scaring me because I am a drug addict and the drug Ive had a problem with damages your kidneys.( I just found out). I told the dr everything and he sent me away anyways. also any tips on how to decrease the pain at home?
