Re: sharp pain in kidneys and down one side of leg

could be your psoas muscles and not your kidneys at all. The psoas muscle is located deep in the abdomen. There are two of them, one on each side of the spine. Underneath the viscera (guts) and against the spine the Psoas runs from the top of the lumbar vertebrae all the way through the pelvis and attaches to the inside of the top of the leg. Along the way it is attached to each of the lumbar vertebrae. Then as the Psoas passes through the pelvis it joins with the Illiacus muscle to form a common tendon which exits the front of the pelvis and attaches to the inside of the leg right near the top of the femur (thigh). It attaches itself to the spine right beside the kidneys so pain of the Psoas can be confused with kidney pain. Hope this helps!
