Kidney failure?

Hi, I'm a 14 year old female that is currently freaking out. I was an idiot, and checked online for the symptoms of kidney failure because I had back pain around where the kidneys are... Symptoms included, pain around the kidneys, swollen ankles of pain in the ankles, you get tired after walking  up a flight of stairs..lol all of which I experience, also, when I urinate, I don't feel like all of the urine has come out of me.... I'm so scared that I have kidney disease/ kidney failure. Please, if you have similar experiences or calming words, it will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

At your age. And kind of organ failure  is rare lol dont google its evil! All our worst enemy. You could possibly have a urine infection though. Get a urine sample to your doctor and have it tested. A short course of antibiotics fixes this if thats the case :D

Drink plenty of water.

You could possibly be due a visit from " aunt flow" some women get swollen ankles at that time of month

Update:

I went to the hospital last night and they did I urine sample and took some blood. I got the results back today and they said that everything was fine, but I am scheduled for an ultrasound on Thursday because they want to make sure they didn't miss anything. Thanks for your comment though,I t calmed me down.
