Pregnant and MSK

Hello everyone!
I was diagnosed with MSK a couple months ago and after going to the urologist and getting a cold reception, I was given lab work to do and never went got it done. I recently found out I am pregnant (4-5 weeks)  and am havipaid flank  pain and I'm scared it's a kidney infection. I have an OB appt on Monday but don't know exactly what to ask. Any suggestions?

You MUST let your OB know that you have MSK and are having flank pain. MSK can cause UTI's which can evolve into kidney infections.  MSK is also known for causing kidney stones.  Once the OB has this info then he/she can prescribe to correct antibiotic (if needed) to treat it without harm to the baby. ALWAYS give your doctor any pertinent information, your baby's and your life may depend on it.

Best of luck
