kidney pain connection with chest pain??

Over the last year I periodically have kidney/bladder pain with backache, etc.  usually the next day I have shortness of breath, left  chest numbness/pressure, headache,  sweating, swelling of hands and feet and a weight gain of about 5 pounds.  I am extremely tired and after about 4-5 days all symptoms disappear.  Is there a connection between a bladder/kidney infection and the retention of fluid that is directly related to the chest discomfort and shortness of breath?  I cannot afford a lot of tests, etc. to find out that it is nothing.  I am in my mid-50's.  thank you

Dear dac

Not usually.  Your symptoms sound more like anxiety than angina or chest pain.  

I hope this has been useful. I wish you the best of luck. Feel free to write back.
