Why do I have Kidney pain
Why do I have kidney pain (constant) and stong smelling cloudy dark yellow urine with little white things floating around in it? I have been to doctor twice been treated for uti with antibiotics, but the pain never stopped and seems to be getting worse.
Most family providers will treat Urinary tract infections with a short course of antibiotics. If that does not take care of the problem then a more through evaluation should be done including a urine culture to document that an infection exists, an X-ray of the urinary system (usually a CT Urogram) and if need be a referral to a Urologist.
