As you mentioned this might be kidney infection as well as some spinal problems.
It is very important for you to have simple urine tests performed witch will rule out kidney infection.
Abdomen ultrasound and blood tests are advisable as well.
If it will show nothing you should have spinal CT done.
Hope this will help
Take care
