after an episode of pneumonia probably you have developed acute on chronic renal failure.
in that case creatinine should settle down after treatment of pneumonia and wait for ATN to resolve.
Other causes for kidney function deterioration has to be looked upon in consultation with your Doc.
Few common side effects of dialysis are developing low BP,fever, nausea during HD.
