Question by  alexisdrives (13)

My tests showed I had a normal blood count, but I still have kidney pain, what should I do?

You should talk with your doctor. Ask to be referred to a kidney specialist. Either doctor will probably order more tests to find where your pain is coming from. A lot of times a sonogram will show a lot when it comes to a question about kidneys. There are many other tests available.

Drink plenty of fluids, especially water. Cranberry juice as well as you may be experiencing the first symptoms of a pending infection.

see your Dr even with normal blood work you could have renal trouble such as a kidney stone or kidney infection. you need a urinalysis done and maybe a cat scan to rule out kidney stones or kidney infection. It could also be a symptom of a sexually transmitted disease.

You may have the early stages of a kidney infection that isn't showing up in the blood yet you need to call the doctor and let them know there are a battery of other tests they can perform to make sure they are diagnosing you corretly. Or set up a consul;t with the doctor and they will explain everything.

If you went in and had a blood test, your kidneys must hurt badly. I would go back to the doctor. Maybe you have a kidney stone? In the meantime, drink plenty of fluids and get some rest. Then go to the doctor. If they cannot make a diagnosis, see a renal specialist.

Maybe it its a referred pain and can be a hepatic colic if it only the right kidney, or a renal colic for a calculus in the ureter. Anyways you should have a 24 hours urine exam to check your renal function. Also it can be a neprhitis.

The doctor may have to take more test to figure out the best way to treat you. Sometimes the test can be good and not show up in the blood work, the doctor may have to take more test to figure out what is up.


Answer by  SubhashChander (1773)

Normal blood counts do not have any direct relationship with the functioning of the kidneys. Kidney may have pain, despite the normal blood count, due to the non-filtering of more than normal toxic and acidic materials in the urine.
