Cold, kidney area pain, dark urine. Used aspirin What is going on?

Currently in Chiang Mai Thailand and its Songkran big water fight and unfortunatley a lot of dirty water is thrown around. Three days of playing I caught a cold. Soon after my back began to hurt and then realized it must be my kidneys. Was also drinking, on and off flop sweats, on and off temp but not bad, didn't messure temp. Urine is dark and cloudy, no pain urinating. Been taking natural remedies for cold plus asprin or ibuprofin. Its almost 6am here planning on waiting to see doc around 9am. Pain is mild. What do you think?

General & Family Physician 's  Response
Your history shows cold, kidney area pain, and dark urine. Urinary tract infection mostly presents as fever, chills, flank pain, burning urination, nausea, vomiting, urgency, and foul smelling urine. Not all patients develop all the symptoms. To diagnose the urinary tract infection, ‘urine DR’ (detailed report) is advised; which shows pus cells and red cells, in case of urinary tract infection. Along with urine DR, the ‘complete blood count (CBC)’ can help to rule out other body infections. Urinary tract infections can be treated with suitable antibiotics. I recommend you to go for ‘urine DR’ and just take plenty of clean water.
Take care.
