Coming off methadone, Kidney pain.

I'm tapering off methadone, I'm done to 10mg, but now I'm having kidney pain. I've drank water for 2 days, thinking maybe I was getting a kidney infection, but it's not helping. It's not my back hurting its on both sides! I've come down from 45mg to 10mg in the last 10 days and I have 1 1/2 pills left. Tomorrow will be 10mg, the next 5mg, I'm doing it the best I can, but I dont understand the kidney pain. This is probably the least my kidneies have ever had to filter!! It's been 5 yrs since I've been sober. Help, Help, Help

You really should see a Dr. over this.. We do not have the knowledge to tell you if it's a infection or stones.. I have 1 kidney and mine did hurt while wd but the pain was intermittent.. When kidney pain is continues you need to get checked.. Good job tapering from the methadone.. I wish you well on your journey.. lesa

Lesa is absolutely right,best to see a doctor.I went c/t off of methadone 9 months ago and I had pain,but not pain that I would pin point at my kidneys,just all over aches and pains.Might be something else going on.It's best you get it checked out.All the best...Kim

Thanks for answering, but I drank alot of water and took some cranberry pills and it seems to have worked, for now. I've got to find a new doctor, the one that cut my methadone out(which was a blessing in disguise), with no notice was actually found dead in her dr.'s office, which she lived in the back in an apartment. It's been 2 days since it happened and it's not in the paper or on the news, so I assume they are investagating it. It's really sad, she was nice and young. But, I 've got to find a new one.
But, thanks so much. I really hope I can lead a normal life now.
Thanks
