Have back pain when dehydrated. Had Urinary Tract Infection spread to kidneys. Related?

I am having pain in my back on my right hand side. A few weeks ago I had very painful gas like cramps , mostly on the right hand side but throughout the front. About 1.5 years ago I had a urinary tract infection that was thought to have spread to my kidneys because of the fever and pain that I experienced. I have had one urinary tract infection since then and every now and then I feel this kind of pain when I am dehydrated. Could this be a problem with my kidneys?

Tanks for using HCM!

You have to do some investigations to come to some conclusion.
You haven't mentioned your age, also, whether your UTI in past was diagnosed, with which investigations.
Now, you should do Urine culture & sensitivity, Renal Function Tests,
Sr. Uric Acid, CBC, Ultrasound KUB & X-ray KUB.

Further management depends on these investigations,
Consult your Urologist with the reports.
Till then you may take, with your doctor's opinion, antispasmodics, analgesics, tamsulosin & diuretics (if required), antibiotics (as per reports).

Drink plenty of water throughout day, approx. 2-3 litres/day.
Hope this explanation is satisfactory for you.

Wish you a healthy life ahead.
