Back pain from kidney failure is frequently severe and felt directly below the ribs. It can be felt in the hip or front of the groin. Kidney cysts, which are huge fluid-filled sacs that develop on the kidneys as a result of polycystic kidney disease, can cause back and leg pain.

Normal back pain acts differently from back pain associated with the kidneys; it is more localized, strikes suddenly, and has no accompanying temperature. Make an appointment with your doctor if you experience back pain frequently and over-the-counter painkillers are unsuccessful.
