    Pain seems to be settled more around my lower back right over my kidneys. I am in a lot of pain all over but this pain is worse. Think it is time to go see the dr.

    Unfortunately, having CFS and/or FM does not exempt us from other disorders (it really should). You need to be sure the kidney pain is not something new.

    I agree that it is definitely time to go see a doctor.

    You could have a bad kidney infection, or maybe a problem with your sciatic nerve--is your leg(s) hurting, too, or have any numbness in your foot?

    It could be about anything .... I'd call the doctor ASAP for an appointment!!!

    Time to see the doctor. Not trying to be an alarmist, but I had surgery a month ago for a "complex cyst" on my left kidney that was found quite by accident when I was having an MRI for back pain.

    Go see your doctor! Maybe it's something "simple" like a UTI.

    Good luck and let us know.
