  • Sharp pain which is related to the kidney seems to originate from deep inside the muscles in the upper back and sides.
  • If pain is accompanied by discomfort in urination such as pain during urination, foul and discolored urine, increase in tendency to urinate or blood in the urine then most probably some damage has been inflicted to the kidneys.
