What causes kidney pains?

My kidneys hurt wen I'm on my feet to long or wen I'm laying down. They randomly hurt at times and usually its only one side. Yesterday it was both and it was sharp pulling pains. I almost couldn't stand anymore. I'm not peeing blood and it does not hurt when I urinate. I'm an 18 yr old female. What can it be?

Urologist 's  Response
Thanks for query .

Pain in kidney area could be either due to spasm of back muscle or stone in kidney .

Since you do not have any other urinary symptoms or hematuria or vomiting the possibility of pain is more likely to be due to muscle spasm.However this has t be confirmed by clinical examination by a qualified urologist and doing ultrasound scanning og abdomen and pelvis .

Taking pain killers and antibiotic should resolve the issue .

Further treatment will depend upon result of these tests and final diagnosis
