What causes kidney infections in women

Report as

What are the signs and symptoms of kidney infection?
A symptom is something the patient feels and reports, while a sign is something other people, such as the doctor, detect. For example, pain may be a symptom while a rash may be a sign.

When someone has a kidney infection it normally develops quite fast - in a day or a few hours. The patient will typically have:

Diarrhea
A high temperature of 38 ?c (100.4?f) or above
Nausea
Uncontrollable shivering
Vomiting
Back pain
Pain in the groin
Pain in the side
Often symptoms are worse when the patient urinates

If there is also a corresponding bladder infection (cystitis or urethritis) the individual may experience:

Bloody urine
Cloudy urine
Dysuria - pain or difficult urination. Often described as a burning or stinging sensation.
Foul smelling urine
Frequent urination
Inability to urinate fully
Pain in the lower abdomen
