I've always had some problem with my kidneys. Kidney stones or infections since my teen years. I am now 36. As of now, I'm having constant back pain alternating from a burning pain in my kidney area to sharp stabbing pain. Especially when I have to use the bathroom. I do not hold it. As soon as I have to use the bathroom the pain gets worse. Sometimes I know I have to go before my bladder tells me because of the back pain. Other problems are popping up and I don't know if its related to the kidneys or if its just old age saying hello. If I stand for more than a minute or two, my organs seem to get heavy and feel like they are all squeezed together and I can't breathe. And the body aches at night almost bring tears to my eyes. I won't even say body aches. Its more like pain. It feels as if its inside my bones and someone is drilling in there and my joints throb. I don't know what is going on. I don't have insurance right now, so the doctor is pretty much out of the question. I'm hoping someone on here might have an idea what is going on. Please help. Thanks for any advise in advance.

I'm sorry that you're going through this, but the best advice I can give you is to go see your doctor if you haven't already. Have you been seen by a urologist?

First thing that came to mind is WATER, are you drinking enough and not just when one feels thirsty. I'd never drink WATER if I waited to feel thirst. I drink all day, sipping and often larger gulps and drink during the night too when I wake up for bathroom.

I take a lot of supplements and believe many of them help with NO uti's

Otherwise talk to a "SMART" doctor.

Making sure you drink enough water is always good advice.

Even without insurance, you need to be seen by a doctor. Can you call 211 to find out about low income clinics in your area?

I've had a really bad UTI before and it made my whole body ache at night. That sounds like it might be what's going on for you.

Get to a doctor. Somehow, someway you need to see a doctor. No one here can diagnose you, and this sounds like it could be serious. If it gets really painful go to an ER.
