Pain in my Right Kidney

I am 23 years old and for the past few days my right kidney is just throbbing. not so bad that i feel i need to rush to the hospital right this second but bad enough that i am getting axietey from it.... I know with most infections to the kidney you need to have bladder or urination problems but I don't seem to have any issues with urination. It just is a constant throb and if bumped ever so slightly I will just drop to the gound it is very tender. My left kidney seems to accationally start to throb but the right one is just killing me.... I am making a appt to go to my family physician but I'm not sure if I should look at it as a emergency and rush to the hospital instead.? any Ideas or advice?

Hi there and welcome to MedHelp.

There are several things that could be going on.  Probably #1 is a kidney stone.  It could get caught somewhere in route or be stuck in a tender spot in the kidney.   Other cause of flank pain are: bladder neoplasm (abnormal growth), urinary tract inection, glomerulonephritis (inflamation (inflammation) in the glomerul part of the kidney), obstructive uropathy, pancreatits, papillary necrosis and cortical necrosis (have no idea what this is), perirenal abscess, polycystic kidney disease, pyelonephritis, renal infraction, renal neoplasm, renal trauma, and renal vein thrombosis.  So you can see many thngs "could" cause the pain you're experiencing.  Your dr. can probably assist you better in the dx

From past experience, just three years ago,  I know very well that one doesn't have to have a problem with urine output in order to have renal failure.  But, I can tell you, too, that I didn't know there was a problem 'til I started getting such terrible nausea that I had to go to the E.R.  Then, I started having the right flank pain--after I was admitted.  They told me that one doesn't usually start to feel such pain 'til there is already a significant problem.
