I hope everyone is doing well. I know this is a silly question but I was just wondering about the experiences of others. Has anyone noticed that when you  are sick with a cold or some type of flu bug  that you get kidney pain? I have a bad head cold and my back is killing me. When I get a fever the first place I feel it is in my kidneys. Has anyone else experienced something similar? Is there a reason for it?

I have went to the doctor for what you just brought up. My kidneys ache and hurt more than normal when I'm sick. I get dyhdrated. Very simple I just drink more fluids but it still hurts when I'm sick.

It must be very bad acid reflux if it sends you to the ER. That must hurt like heck. Have they suggested you go to a gastro intestinal specialist? I know that I have Crohn's disease and often times I get reflux, but nothing too serious.
 
Yes, I feel like I am falling apart. I have been on steroids for my bowel inflammation since August so I am fighting infections. It gets so confusing that when I went to my doc yesterday with a kidney infection I thought maybe I was going crazy. Once again I have a kidney ifection and sinus infection at the same time. I have had 3 bouts since October and on top of all my other issues I am ready to trade bodies with someone else.
 
My pharamacist actually pulled me aside yesterday and gave me a pep talk.
 
I hope you get your reflux incheck very soon. I know that is a miserable feeling.
