Soreness in the back near kidney. Need to go to emergency?

I have had soreness in the right side of my back in the kidney area. I thought it was a pulled muscle. Then today I had excrutiating pain in my left back radiating some to my side and front. If it didn t ease off enough too tolerate the pain I would have had to go to ER. I have no insurance so I can t go to doctor or ER. Any ideas?

You might be having pulled muscle or You may have a kidney infection, infected ureters (tubes from kidney to bladder), bruised kidneys-if you got hit in the back recently, etc.
Taking muscle relaxants in combination with mild pain killers will help you. Doing a hot fomentation and applying a local analgesic gel on the affected area will also help in providing a relief.
Taking calcium and vitamin D 3 supplements will also help in early recovery. You can get these prescribed from your orthopedician.
