Back pain symptoms may seem obvious. But do you know when symptoms of back pain are more serious or when to see a doctor? Learn what action to take & when...
now, im sure ive elt this before but is it normal because i dont always notice it, when stood up i touched my back, just under my ribs sort of where my waist goes in a bit, i would say it is my kidney area, should it be so sensitive to touch? if i press very very lightly it doesnt hurt but anything slightly more, still not that heavy, and it hurts to press in, is this a kidney problem?
ive had a kidney infection before and many UTIs, annoyingly i noticed this morning a slight sharpness of urination but only the first time, since then there has been no problem, i have no reason to have an infection, no seual intercourse, nothing in baths etc.

I do know that tenderness in the kidney area could be an indication of a kidney infection. Have you have a fever or chills? Is it possible that you were hit in this area?

I suggest that you call your doctor. It is always better to be safe than sorry!

kidney pain on both sides when touched
I am currently having the same problem. When i touch my sides (Both sides) it hurts just from touching. I am going to PCP tomorrow and also i am not walking right. Like i am compensating for something. I know how you are feeling. Although no urine buring, but before i noticed this pain on my sides I had bad cramping in my lower abdominal area like i had my period but didn't and now this. No fevers but i do get the chills. Good luck....

Sounds like a classic kidney infection.

If infection starts in the kidney, it's not uncommon to be without symptoms of a urinary tract infection aka bladder infection.

Especially with the chills, get to the PCP and have it checked out.

good luck
