what is wrong with me?

I have been to doctors, and they just run tests. And I wait for a week.
I have had this kink in my upper shoulder, then later that day, I was falling asleep, like knocked out. I was feverish, with chills and lots of aches. Woke up and I couldn't even move my body without my head feeling like it was going to pop off with so much pain.
My lower back aches, like i can feel my kidneys aching. My throat is soar. I feel like a zombie, and just have to lay there, i have no idea what is wrong. The doctors send my urine out buy i have to wait for a week. I have had a kidne infection before and it felt like this, except i had to be treated in the hospital.
HELP, what is wrong wtih me? No i have not had sex in awhile, I'm not pregnant.

Sounds like you have a kidney infection my dear, or a UTI (urinary tract infection).

Unfortunately, all the natural remedies tend to not work, so antibiotics are what's going to fix you. You've been to the doctor, so that's good. Drink plenty of fluids (stay very hydrated).

Sorry for your pain & suffering... you don't sound like you're having a good time of it.

I just looked up the symptoms and listed them below...

Kidney infection symptoms may include:

    * Disease begins acutely; there is high (up to 40 gr. C) temperature (fever), chills, heavy pot;
    * Pain in the lumbar region, on the side of the affected kidney – stress the anterior abdominal wall, the sharp pain in the costovertebral angle;
    * Malaise, thirst, dysuria or thamuria;
    * Acceding headache, nausea, vomiting indicate a rapidly growing intoxication;
    * Marked neutrophilic leukocytosis, aneozinofiliya, pyuria with moderate proteinuria and hematuria
    * One or both kidneys may increase and become painful;
    * Approximately 1 / 3 of people with kidney infection also experience symptoms of inflammation of the bladder (cystitis) – more frequent and painful urination.
