Usually I wake up at 3 or 4:00 am in the morning with severe back pain(I know it's my kidneys as I've had this issue before. I used to get anti-biotics from the Docs but they don't like to give me any prescriptions for them as they are saying nothing shows up to indicate I have an infection.

welcome to HCM.

i appreciate your effort in seeking medical advice in so much of distress.

Well, information provided by you is too less to suggest rightly. first of all u didnt mention

your gender, as problems are sex specific. But still i think you need to undergo few initial investi-

gations to reach diagnosis like Urine R/M, usg KUB to start with.
wish you a speedy recovery.

Cardiologist Dr. Anantharamakrishnan's  Response

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It is not feasible to suggest a correct diagnosis or approach - because you have not stated your age, gender, personal habits, family history or co-morbidities
It could be a stone?
It could be prostatitis in male...
You should see an Urologist / have urine and blood tests/ ultrasound...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
