We're glad you found us! Sorry to hear you're struggling with a flare. You know your body best, and if you think and feel that your kidneys are involved, they probably are. I think by the description of your urine, that you definitely need some testing and treatment done before it gets out of hand.
Being on moderate to high doses of prednisone can put you at a higher risk for infection as well. I noticed in your signature line that you're on 20mg of pred. That's considered a moderate dose. So when you're taking that much, it's important to really watch, listen and respond quickly to any changes that your body is presenting.
Definitely contact your doctor as soon as you can. Looking forward to getting to know you more!
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
