Kidney and Bladder problems
Hello.
I am a 19 year old, female. Growing up I had re-occurring kidney and bladder problems like  infections, and had to have a regurgitation test ran. The test was normal. Years passed with a couple UTI's and bladder infections. I had about three UTI's that year, But October 2009, I was diagnosed with kidney stones and after a few days I passed them I assume. Since the stones, I have had multiple UTI's and Kidney infections. I found out I had a bad kidney infection about September 2010 due to stomach pain and back pain. I was put on an antibiotic then it got better. For the past  months I have been experiencing headaches, high blood pressure, back pain, stomach pain, pain on my side, and pain that goes down my hip, all on my right side. I was sent to a stomach Dr. due to the stomach pain, and was put on medicine and the stomach pain was blamed on my lack of having a gallbladder, and  too much bile production. I am taking the meds which have helped some bathroom issues, but the pain still remains. I am worried that I may be having some kidney issues, or am maybe trying to get another infection, but I am curious if this could be a result of something more serious. I plan to make an appointment with my family Dr. but I do not want to sound silly to him if I request that he run tests other than urine. I appreciate any help that you may have to offer. I know that since you do not know my entire history, this would be a hard answer.

Thank you,
