I have been told I have a kidney infection . Had no signs but a slight temp, and serious back pain . Have been on antibiotics for 4 1/2 days and still another 2 1/2 days to go. Tonight my temperature dropped to 95.8. I feel pretty bad. I m suppose to go back to the doctor in 2 days. I m worried... Is this temperature dangerous or am I ok?

Welcome to HCM and thanks for your query.
The combinations of signs and symptoms of UTI along with low temperature may indicate spread of the bacteria to the blood.
Hence it is better to rush to the nearest A&E.
Wishing you good health,
Best regards
