: : For the past six months I have had off and on right flank pain. It is mostly in the back. It doesn't usually hurt much unless I bump into something and then it hurts. Feels like the pain is deep. It is definitely not a pulled muscle. I have had changes in urinary frequency and last summer I had pure blood in my urine with no pain whatsoever. Went to the emergency room where they took a urine sample and determined I had a bladder infection because there was blood in the urine. No pain, no fever. I am wondering if the back pain and the urinary problems are related. One last never hurts while laying down on my back. Any advice welcome.

: I would see a nephrologist. I have IgA nephropathy and your symptoms seem similar to mine, though I never urinated pure blood. Good luck!

I, too, have had right flank pain and abdominal pain, plus mulitple UTI's, 3 of which in the last 3 months have been 'systemic' (doc says maybe some bacteremia was involved). Sonogram shows something, IVP was scheduled, but couldn't tolerate the 'new' prep they use now, so CT scan scheduled next week. Presently, I get tired easily, much pain in flank and abdominal area on right side (this is the kidney that has been constantly affected, and which I had to surgeries on 16 and 28 years ago respectively...since last surgery, maybe dozen UTI's - all minor, suddenly in last year, they've become systemic.) and mucho 'pitstops' (urinary frequency), but no burning at this point, and low-grade fevers (>100). Sound like stones? CT is to rule out stones and/or abcess (due to low-grade temp). Off antibiotics now after 2-week regimen
