please can anyone help me, I have had four attacks of pain since June and it starts with twinges in my left back (about where my left kidney is), within a hour I am in excruciating pain, just talking or breathing can cause a searing pain and I know for the next three/four days I can do absolutely nothing, it completely stops me in my tracks. I have previously had a couple of attacks in previous years and at the time I thought it was a nipped nerve in my back and so ignored it (even though I would be laid up with the pain for several days). I now think it is something wrong with my kidney. I am not aware I have passed any stones or even have any stones. I do have leukocytes and blood in my urine (but I also have a condition called ‘bladder pain syndrome’ which can cause me to get leukocytes and blood). In the morning my urine is smelly at the moment. I went to A&E on Monday as I felt so desperate with the pain - they did bloods and urine sample, confirmed I had blood and leukocytes in urine, asked me 101 questions, ruled out pancreas and gall bladder problems (as this was my main concern). Didn’t really say much else but told me to go to my doctor and tell my doctor about my pain and maybe refer me for a scan. Kept asking me about UTI infections and bowel movements. My question is that my pain is there in my back, where my left kidney is, to move causes a sharp pain, but I can sit and do nothing and the pain subsides but to try and do normal things I can’t, this has such an impact on my life. Does anyone else have this pain that lasts days and days, a sharp pain that is dibilitating. Could it be anything else? I hope someone can help
