Difficulty Passing Urine

Contact your doctor immediately! You should have an urgent medical evaluation. Symptoms such as fever, shaking chills, pain in the back or flank, or blood in the urine can be a sign of a kidney infection, which may complicate a urinary tract infection - it's called pyelonephritis. Another possibility is that you may have a kidney stone.
