Hip Pain or Kidney Infection?

Pain in your hips can sometimes be a side effect of a kidney infection. It can also come from so many other sources that it’s sometimes hard for a patient to tell where it starts. Pain from your kidneys can radiate throughout your back and hips.

Minor Problems

Many pain issues are minor problems that resolve on their own. Hip pain can be caused by inflamed nerves or tissues and is sometimes associated with back problems in general. Arthritis can also be a minor cause of hip pain. Infections, on the other hand, are very big problems.

Infections and Pain

If you have a kidney infection, some pain may well be experienced in your hips. Kidney infections are always serious problems. They require treatment in all cases. You should always have a doctor take a look at you if you suspect that you have a kidney infection. MRI scans, x-rays, and other tests can provide a doctor with information about what’s going on with your body. Infections need to be treated right away. The symptoms, including hip pain, generally lesson very quickly once treatment begins.
