Do I have a kidney infection or should I go to the ER ?

I have a temperature of 99.4 where my usual is around 96.5. I have severe aching pain in my lower back on both sides. The pain is made worse when I move or breathe deeply. I am extremely moody and fatigued. I also have sudden onset of nausea, though I never vomit. I have also been having problems with peeing VERY often. Sometimes 3-4 times an hour. Although, I don't always completely go. I have been taking cranberry pills, drinking cranberry juice, and poweraide. I also took a hot bath to try to dull the pain but it didn't help. Do I have a kidney infection or should I go to the ER?

it seems you have stone in the kidney with the infection of the urinary bladder. get a urine culture done and also urine analysis and get an x ray examination of kidney. it is called KUB x ray. that would be fine to have a diagnosis. you need to consult a urologist for further treatment
