Hi everyone. Back in September I had uti infection that came back as Ecoli. I was given augmentin And after 10 days of that my bladder frequency urgency and burning were all better But I was still having kidney pain in both kidneys So the doctor wanted me to take 5 more days of the augmentin. After the 5 days I was still having kidney pain In both kidneys As if that wasn't bad enough I ended up in the ER with a kidney stone blocked in my ureter.

To make a long story short I ended up having to have a stent placed because I had a high white blood cell count. Took 10 days of cipro for that and it made me extremely sick and hurting all over. After the bloodwork looked better I had lithotripsy and another stent placed For a week. I then had the stent removed in my left kidney.
Both of my kidneys were still hurting after a couple of weeks But my urine culture and urinalysis were negative.
I have a small 5 mm kidney stone in my right kidney but they said that that would not be causing the pain because it is not blocking anything. Why would both of my kidneys still be hurting if the culture is negative? I am waiting to get in to see a new urologist. I didn't like the other doctor at all. I'm afraid that this pain is never going to go away. Can cipro cause chronic kidney pain? I also have chronic Lyme disease for 10 years. Has anyone else had kidney pain without any answers?

I forgot to mention that bloodwork was also normal as far as kidney function and I also had an ultrasound that was normal except for the kidney stone. The last surgery to remove the stent was October the 25th and now just ts December and I'm still having this dreadful pain everyday.

I'm still having the kidney pain. Had another culture done and it was negative. I am having a ct scan with contrast next month but something tells me that it will not show the problem either. The last ct scan w/o contrast just showed a 2mm kidney stone that they said should not be causing any pain. Has anyone else had this kind of unexplained kidney pain? Its driving me crazy and it hurts really bad on both sides but the right one is worse. Help!

Sorry to read you are still suffering. I really do not have any answers for you, but would encourage you to have the Ct with contrast. Many times, the contrast is able to pick up things that were missed on a previous scan without contrast.

Take care.
