    You may have a kidney infection.

    I think it's rather premature (to put it mildly) to be thinking it's packing up

    Dont be all doom and gloom. Pain in this area can be contributed to a whole host of things and not necessarily kidney failure. Kidney failure incidentally does not usually cause any pain.

    However, I am not a clinician and I'm sure this wont be the first reply that will tell you to go to the docs and stop self diagnosing.

    If you get the all clear, I'm nominating this for Hypochondriac thread of the year.

    I doubt your kidney is doing a death throw mate.

    Its more likely to be a kidney stone or infection than it is all out renal failure - if it's your kidney in distress it should feel a bit like lower back pain.

    Is your urine clear/ blood free ?
    Has the pain woken you up?
    Has the pain made you vomit?

    If the answers are yes, no and no then I reckon you'll be OK.

    If not, prepare for a hideous onslaught of pain and misery

    I've got perfect health eat good foods and drinks all my life. Exercise regular alot. I've been having pains on my left side and movement due to the fact taking supplements dont suit me at all soon as I stop taking them after 1 week or so it clears up.

    If your taking supplements stop taking them leave it a week or more see if the pain or movement goes on the left side if it does its the supplements I had the same problem but worked out what mine was.

    Im now on my very last ever supplement myprotein with no added CRAP in it at all Unflavoured 100% whey the best protein out there and contains nothing else added FREE of fillers, sweeteners, flavourings and thickening agents this Unflavoured if this stuff dont work and it causes anymore pain on the left side or movement all my supplement days will be over simple.

    Unflavoured Impact Whey thats the stuff been using last 3 days and will see how it goes this month or week or next week and go from there.

    I lost 3 stones = 42lbs Im well happy!

    You been on supplements 4 weeks sounds like the supplements are the problem. Cause I been on mine few weeks and the pain and movement started from then. You want to try staying of them for 1 week and more and see if the pain goes and the movement.

    I lost 3 stones = 42lbs Im well happy!

    Many people have only one kidney (after transplants, etc..) and live long and healthy lives.. you're worrying over nothing...

    cant believe your asking a group of bbers this kind of a queston rather than your GP

    its perfectly possible to survive with 1 kidney- although if your kidney really is dieing () then i expect the greater concern would be:

    1) why its dieing
    2) will the 2nd follow
    3) what else is at risk

    Edit; (Cant believe i forgot to put this in)

    I have one Kidnee - It was removed when i was very young because of an infection and i'm still here!
