Brief Answer:
Due to infection

Detailed Answer:


This is probably due to a kidney infection. I would recommend that you take ibuprofen tablets to relieve fever and pain. I would also recommend that you get a urine analysis together with a culture and sensitivity test to determine which antibiotic will best treat your infection.

Hope you found the answer helpful.
