    Kidney infection or UTI?

    I was just diagnosed with my fourth UTI in two months. This pain is very different and in my back as well. The urinalysis came back with renal epitheal cells and casts, two things that have never shown up before. Do those things indicate kidney infection? My CT was normal. I'm afraid if it's not diagnosed as a kidney infection, I'm just going to go round and round with this UTI, like I have been for 2 months. Help

    Possible floating kidney?

    I have been having right upper quadrant pain and right flank pain. When standing I have a 'mass' on the right which I can move, I can feel it on the flank too. It's quite big-maybe the size of a pear and it feels smooth. It isn't there when I lay down unless I'm on my left side. I've had a CT of abdomen, MRI (lay down) and an ultrasound. Nothing shows at all. My urine output it normal but my bowels are unusual as I can go 3 days without going then I'll have to go every....

    Kidney Problems

    I have been referred to a specialist after a blood test. Diabetic for 27 years. Microalbumin should, I believe, be within range between 0.00 and 30.00 mg/l. Mine is 457 ! I understand that this indicates a problem - can anyone advise how serious this might be on a scale of 0-10 please?

    Kidney Infection?

    So for the past week I had been having really bad pains in my lower back area. It got to the point that I was not able to move because it hurt so badly. I went to the doctor on 4/20/17 and the doctor said I may have a kidney infection so she prescribed me Cipro. The weird thing is my urine test came back negative and I also never had a fever. So I've been taking Cipro for 4 days now and yesterday, Sunday, I felt a lot better I had no pain in my back. But now today, Monday, I'm not feeling....

    Very swollen feet and ankles

    My boyfriend has had swollen feet and ankles for 2 months or more now. We went to the ER about a month ago because his calf was tight swollen and agry red. Also causing a lot of pain for him. They ran a few tests and did a sonogram to see if he had a blood clot. They found nothing and gave it a generic diagnosis of cellulitis. He went home wih a prescription for antibiotics. Some of the swelling, the redness, and the pain went away but his ankles remain extremely swollen. To the point that he has....
