Do i have a kidney infection


Q: Hi. I started getting lower back pain three months ago but it' gradually gettin worse, now i feel aching, tingling, and burning around my hip, lower back, mid back, pelvic area. When I push in certain areas it hurts really bad and sometimes it even tiggers movement of other area, like my leg. I feel like my hip, lower back, is not align, and yes I do have UTI symptoms, including urge to urinate, painful urination, but it usually goes away so that's why I never really cared but lately I notice my UTI symptoms occur usually after sex. but right now my whole lower back area feels like its burning. It also happens worse on my period. and im always anout two weeks late each month. The only problem I have with concluding what it could be is because, I am also a meth user. So things may vary because of my drug habit but it seems when Im sobering, I start to get fevers and the UTI symptoms comes back, I feel like my hip or leg is dislocated, feel weak in my legs, and feel like I won't be able to walk. This pain comes and go but when its here, its really severe.
