Persisting cough with pain in the back. Could it be kidney related? Elevated creatinine levels

I have had a bad tight cough for the last 6 days and now I have pain in my mid back. How do I know if its my kidney or a back muscle? It s not sharp but hurts more if I rotate to the right and back. I am getting a blood test on Monday as a blood test 3 months ago showed elevated creatinine levels. I am 5 11 224 lb male, ex nfl football player, 6 percent body fat and work out very hard

Thanks for writing to us.
A sudden voilent cough can cause a sudden muscle sprain leading to the pain like you are having. If the pain increases on deep breathing or coughing then a muscular pain is likely. Local hot fomentation will help in providing relief.
