The kidneys, located in the posterior part of the abdomen, at the lumbar level, are essential organs for the proper functioning of the body. The kidneys play an important role in filtering blood and removing wastes in urine. Any pain felt in the kidney must therefore be taken seriously and requires medical consultation.

Kidney pain can be painful and have an impact on the quality of life of the affected person. Kidney pain may indicate the presence of kidney stones or pyelonephritis, which, if not treated properly, can progress to kidney failure.


Pain in the kidneys is often due to pyelonephritis or kidney stones.

Pyelonephritis occurs after a urinary tract infection or cystitis, usually caused by bacteria. If cystitis is not treated in time, the bacteria can travel up the urinary tract and infect the kidney, triggering pyelonephritis. This is an upper urinary tract infection which manifests itself with more or less intense pain.

Kidney stones, or renal lithiasis, are small crystals formed by mineral salts and calcium oxalate. They look like small stones and are lodged in the urinary tract, including the kidneys. When they are small, they are easily passed in the urine. However, when they are large, they can colonize the kidneys and cause renal colic. Renal colic is severe pain felt in the lower back, caused by strong pressure in the urinary tract.


Pyelonephritis, as well as kidney stones, cause pain in the kidneys. However, these two ailments do not cause the same symptoms.

Pyelonephritis usually presents with burning when urinating, with frequent urge and difficulty urinating. They can be accompanied by a fever above 38°, a feeling of malaise, back pain or even digestive problems (nausea and vomiting). In addition, urine is often cloudy and smelly. Pyelonephritis must be treated quickly by a doctor to avoid complications (sepsis for example).

The presence of kidney stones can cause pain in one of the two kidneys. These pains tend to worsen during the night or upon waking up. This pain can be accompanied by fatigue, nausea as well as pain during urination when the kidney stones are evacuated naturally.


Fortunately, there are some natural solutions which, alongside medical treatment, help to soothe kidney pain.

Regardless of the severity of kidney pain, it is important to get plenty of rest and sleep. In addition, it is advisable to maintain a slightly inclined position to improve blood circulation, then avoid making sudden movements as they can aggravate the pain.

To relieve kidney pain quickly, it is recommended to apply a hot or lukewarm compress for around twenty minutes to the painful area. The heat promotes blood flow and relaxes the nerves, creating a calming effect. Be careful, however, the compress must not be too hot as this risks damaging the kidneys.

To soothe kidney pain, it is also essential to drink plenty of water and fruit juices, especially blueberry juice because this small fruit is a natural purifier that cleans bacteria. Infusions based on medicinal plants are also preferred; nettle leaves, for example, have the virtue of purifying toxins and protecting the kidneys. Goldenrod, due to its diuretic properties, is an excellent solution in the treatment of kidney conditions. Ginger is also an ideal anti-inflammatory for relieving kidney pain.

Finally, CBD , a natural molecule extracted from hemp, could help calm kidney pain.

Does CBD help relieve kidney pain?

Cannabidiol, better known by the acronym “CBD”, is today consumed by 10% of the French population to relieve various ailments. According to a study , cannabidiol (CBD) has therapeutic properties. Indeed, by acting on the endocannabinoid system and its receptors associated with pain, CBD promotes relaxation and helps reduce stress, reduce insomnia and calm pain. However, as CBD is considered a novel ingredient in France (novel food), it does not yet have a health claim. We cannot therefore say that CBD has analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects which could help calm kidney pain.
