Feeling bad for many days, running no fever, I am a US citizen but we are doing mission work in Nicaragua and don't always have access to a doctor. Pain started 2-3 days ago in my back on the right side just higher than my hip bone. I wondered about that same time if I were getting a bladder infection, but that hasn't happened. It's been a long time since I had a bladder infection, and when those hit me, they hit hard and fast. When the pain in my back started, that's when I wondered that maybe I'm dealing with a kidney infection. I developed cold-like symptoms for several weeks when traveling to Texas from mid May to mid June. Scratchy sore throat, a couple of earaches after returning that only last less than a day. Still no fever with any of this.
