Can You Get Lower Back Pain From A Yeast Infection

Can you get lower back pain from a yeast infection? Lower back pain is not a symptom of a vaginal yeast infection. I’ll explain below.

Your kidney area

Your kidneys are located in your lower back area so any lower back pain while you’re suffering from an infection could be a sign of a kidney infection. The kidneys are part of your urinary tract so if you do have an infection of your kidneys it probably has spread up from your urethra.

If you have self diagnosed your yeast infection then you may have gotten your diagnosis wrong. Thousands of women get their diagnosis wrong, and this is the reason why it’s important to see your doctor at the first sign of any infection.

Other symptoms of a urinary tract infection

If you know suspect you could be suffering from a urinary tract infection you may be suffering from these symptoms as well…

  • Pain or burning when urinating
  • Blood or mucus in urine
  • Needing to urinate often
  • Pain or pressure in back or lower abdomen
  • And a fever or chills

If you are suffering from any of these symptoms it’s important to see your doctor for a proper diagnosis. Until you get to see your doctor make sure you drink plenty of water ( about 2 liters a day ) and cranberry juice if possible to keep your kidneys flushed out.
