Recovering from flu, having lots of pain in kidneys, lower back now. Is this a normal flu symptom ?

Hi.... I am recovering from the flu . I went to a physician and got some antibiotics ( Z pack) which after a few days I m feeling much better BUT I m having lots of pain in my kidneys/ lower back now. Is there something else going on? I have no change or pain with urination . This is not a usual pain I have. I have been getting sick on and off all winter. Is this a normal flu symptom? Is there some ways I can treat this post-flu symptom at home? Thank you!

Welcome to HCM!

You should rule out kidney condition, if any, by doing certain investigations:
Ultrasound KUB, X-ray KUB, CBC, RFT, Urine routine exam.

If any stone is found, or any other kidney condition, consult your Urologist.
Till then you may take antispasmodics, analgesics, pre- & pro-biotics with your doctor's opinion.
Drink plenty of water so that at least 2 litres of urine is voided in 24 hrs.

Wish you a speedy recovery!
With warm regards.
