Personal advice needed

  1. Hi there,

    I am a new student on the boards and have a personal advice question.

    I am having pain which I believe is in my kidneys, mostly the right side. It is not extremely painful....just an aching feeling that is there consistently every day for about the past month. Before that, it was occasional.

    I have had a prior kidney infection that I was hospitalized with 21 years ago during a pregnancy. With that infection I had sharp pain and a high fever.

    I do not have any symptoms of a kidney infection (burning during urination, etc). I only have this dull aching and am extremely fatigued...I just want to sleep.

    Could I have a kidney infection with none of the obvious symptoms? Would you recommend seeing my md? I just feel like I don't really have enough symptoms to bother him.

    Any advice would be appreciated.
