Has anyone had experience with getting bacteremia, caused from kidney cyst infection? My son has this infection coming from an unknown source. The only thing so far the doctors have come up with is its from his pkd cysts. His symptoms for the infections were: weakness, headache, low blood pressure, dehydration, tiredness, fever, chills.
