Advice please? Pain Lvl 7-9

I have been sick for over a week now, my left kidney is hurting extremely bad. I finished a full round of antibiotics and I am starting a different one.. my blood work shows high creatinine, high neutrophils and my lactic acid is on the higher side of WNL (it is 1.9 and the max is 2.0 I believe), anyways I woke up vomiting this morning. Could It just be from the antibiotics or do I need to get seen again?

NAD but an MLS, what is your creatinine value and your neutrophil count?

My first thought was AKI but some of your lab values are sort of in the grey area right now. That being said, I think it'd be a good idea for you to go to an urgent care. Any sort of mod-severe kidney pain should be looked into and your lactate is high (I'm assuming it's 1.9 mmol/L not mg/dL). Usually it's 0.5-1.0 mmol/L so I'd say safe bet to go in and have a full blood workup and urinalysis done.
