  • The chances that you yourself can feel if your kidney's are swollen is quite rare.Sounds like a UTI - Urinary Tract Infection. If your back is sore around the kidney location, you need to go to the hospital for medical attention. UTI's in the kidney's is serious. Start drinking cranberry juice.
