Brief Answer:
Pyelonephritis can cause nausea and vomiting.

Detailed Answer:
Hello there,
Thanks for being on 'Ask A Doctor' service...
I've gone through your query in details...

A urinary tract infection that involves the kidneys (pyelonephritis) can definitely cause nausea and vomiting. If you are having urinary symptoms (burning, urgency) with nausea and flank pain, you should go in to see a doctor promptly as a kidney infection is a more serious infection and needs to be dealt with quickly.

A kidney infection, while it can cause fever, nausea, and vomiting, does not typically cause diarrhoea, and I see that you are taking Kaopectate, so I am confused as to the reason you are taking that.

Let me know if I can assist you further...
