The pain isn't constant. It's on an off. It usually starts around my right kidney, then down my side to my pelvis area. Sometimes its the left. It's really painful and hard to move or speak. I had problems with my right kidney about 8 months ago. I had a uti that turned into kidney infection then failure. It's been sore on and off since. My parents who live out of town told me I should go to the hospital if it gets too bad but I can't afford to. We live alone on 1 minimum wage check. Any suggestions?
See a Doctor could be a kidney stone, I know money is short, but if you wait to long could cost more, get checked out, take care.
See a Dr asap.
I agree, see a dr. It could be a stone. The hospital would bill you monthly. You should be able to get medicaid in your situation, have you applied?
Hi Angellalyn, even if you can't afford the hospital bill for the ER,I am sure if you look on the Web in your area, they have a program that can help pay your bill . No matter if your income is a little bit higher than what the FIA will allow you for insurance. Also if you have had kidney failure before, this is nothing to ignore for a long period of time. I wish you all the best in getting well. Drink plenty of cranberry juices. :)
