Nephrologist 's  Response
Hello, welcome to HCM. Why are you taking Penicillin? Some people do get inflmmation in the kidney filters after they recover/ during recovery from steptococcal infection. Donot hesitate. Get your self checked by a nephrologist ASAP. The bleedling might have stopped, but not the silent injury to your kidneys. Only way to find that out is by doing various tests. BW. Ram

General & Family Physician Dr. Masroor Mir Hussain's  Response
It is not possible to confirm that the origin of the pain is from the kidneys. You would need an xray or a scan to do that. Also kidney function tests would reveal if the kidneys are effected. You should follow up with your doctor with the symptoms who would be able to deal with this for you.
