Hi warriors, how do I know if there's something wrong with my kidneys? I've been having stabbing, intermittent pain in my lower to middle back. Is there a urine test i could buy at the pharmacy? Don't want to book a DRS appointment for nothing. My insurance is depleted

Could be gynecological in nature. Sometimes those issues can refer pain elsewhere. My pain has been from an ovarian cyst. You might want to check in with your gynecologist.

I had stage two kidney failure. I work with my nephrologist and was able to maintain it with medication. Blood work and urinalysis test is needed.
