Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

If you have a feve and back pain, there is a possibility of a kidney infection. It is absolutely inappropriate to NOT have you come in to be evaluated. If these symptoms are continuing at this time, you need to go in immediately and get yourself (and the baby) checked out!

I hope that this helps. If you have more questions, please click on "ASK ME A QUESTION" link above to directly ask me a question!
