I think first we need to get one thing clear. You have back pain. That is your trouble. It can have many causes. Unfortunately google search or hearsay has made you fearful about kidney disease. Very very rarely does kidney disease present as back pain. Pls see an MD Medicine, Rheumatologist or an orthopedic surgeon for your backache. Let the doctor decide if this is from the spine, muscle, disc, intestine, pancreas, kidney or whatever based on your history etc. It will save you a lot of anxiety.
