I recently went to ER for kidney pain. Been taking Cipro 4 days now still pain, especially after a lot of movement. Now i have severe neck/shoulder pain and lower abdomin pain, is this possibly something other than a kidney infection? My CT scan showed kidneys looked fine. I dont have insurance so i dont want to go back unless its serious. I am 30 years old, average/thin , drink lots of water & eat mostly healthy. Had 2 lithotripsys two years ago, I also have polycystic kidneys, antiphospholipid syndrome, a spleenal-renal shunt & have been told i have gallstones that are lodged/not at risk of moving.

Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

Based on your description, if the pain is not subsiding with the antibiotics treatment then causes other than UTI (Urinary tract infection ) should be looked for. Complete blood count , ESR, Urine R/E should be repeated. I would advise you to consult your doctor.

Wishing you best of health
