Constant dull pain in lower abdomen, sharp pain on passing urine, fever. Chances of kidney infection?

Hi, My lower right abdomen/side has a dull pain that is pretty much constant. I have had it since about 5:00pm last night however last night it only hurt when i went pee or poop. The pain was like a intense sharp pain. But it didnt burn to pee. Today it doesnt hurt to pee, but now the pain is pretty constant. The pain is about 4 up from my hips and about 6 to the right of my bell button. My fiancee` said he thinks i have a fever , but we do not have a thermometer . My neighbor is a nurse and she said it sounds like a kidney infection or appendix.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

As your neighbour suspected, lower right quadrant abdominal pain with fever is a feature of appendicitis. If you continue to have this pain, fever with or without vomiting, you need to go the ER to rule out appendicitis.

Other possible causes could be an intestinal infection, diverticulitis, a referred pain (source being the renal system).

I hope you are better when you receive this answer. But if you are in distress, you need to visit your doctor at the earliest. Routine blood counts, ultrasound examination and urine microscopy are entailed.

Hope this is helpful.

Wish you speedy recovery
