Brief Answer:
A number of causes

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ma'am, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns but this could due to a number of causes such as:
1) urinary tract infection or kidney infection ( pyelonephritis) . this can be diagnosed by a urine analysis that will detect pus cells in addition to the red blood cells . if the urine analysis was suggestive of an infection then should be followed by a culture and sensitivity test to detect which antibiotic will treat the infection best.
2) a kidney or ureteric stone. which can be diagnosed by a pelvic ultrasound and can be treated by lithotripsy to break the stone into pieces and let it pass with urine
3) a kidney or bladder tumor which can be diagnosed by pelvic ultrasound or ct scan..
I hope you find this helpful

My daughter has a kidney infection, but it is now going on the second round of antibiotics and it is not going away. She has severe pains in your lower left back and her stomach and last night it was up in her upper left back also. They did a CT scan this morning. But, she also has a bruise on her leg that is not going away, and this morning she has three more and headaches. I am just worried that this is more than a kidney infection or kidney stone like they looked for this morning.
