Several times over the last week I have suffered a burning pain in my middle/lower back and when I get it I feel nauseous and have a headache and I get shaky and hot. It can last for hours. Do you think it sounds like a kidney infection? Is there anything I can do to treat it myself? I'd rather not take antibiotics unless absolutely necessary.
Yep, I've got a kidney infection. Am on antibiotics now and got to have a blood test on Thursday cos there was glucose in my urine. I know it's not diabetes though because I went straight out afterwards to the pharmacy and got a fingerprick test done which came out all normal.
So, not sure about the glucose thing but hopefully that will right itself with the antibiotics.
