  • Why does my son have kidney pain?

    Hello. I recommend that you see a primary care provider and have your son examined. This could be a kidney infection or a stone. It could be from trauma or it could just be muscle pain from an overall viral syndrome. The only way to know for sure is for him to get a good physical exam, urine sample and possibly blood work depending on the exam. Best wishes, Dr. Sandra Amaral READ MORE
