I personally can't use creatine at all. I'm not sure what effect it has on the kidneys, but they hurt too bad every time I try to use it...

Doubtfull, I can see kidney pain being a begining symptom of Hyperhydration which would be impossible at that amount of water.
The Fina might still have lingering effects on them. Is it a constant dull pain, or short and sharp?

Cranberry juice can help too.

Try some cranberry extract. The shit really stinks (if you know what I mean) but it gets great reviews

I agree with the cranberry extract idea. I'm running a similar cycle and I did experience some slight kidney pains so I pick up some Cranberry Extract pills and they hooked it up. It took a day or two or three, but I feel a difference. So IMO it works or thank God for the placebo effect.

your water consumption is fine.they beat me to it but try cranberry extract(im not sure of the doseages) try that first!

actually drinking lots of water is better for your kidneys to flush out toxic waste in your system. less water causes dehydration and stresses your kidneys, if your prostat glands got swollen due to test intake, try cranberry juice or extract to relieve the pain, sometimes your glands put lots of pressure on your bladder and you feel like you need to piss all the time.

Let me address this question form a medical perspective. First, you can consume too much water. In rare instances it can lead to what is known as "water intoxication". Although this is very rare, insome instances it can cause lectrical function in the body to misfire from the hyperhydration of the cells. It can lead to kidney distress and in VERY rare instances death. This condition has been documented in individuals who are mentally retarded and obsessive with fluid intake.
Since I will assume you are mentally handicapped, I will assure you that your present water intake is well within safe guidelines. You may actually increase your water consumption a bit especially if you are performing cardiovascular training along with your strength routine. Also, if you are taking ANY kind of OTC weight loss products such as "Ripped Fuel", "Xenadrine", "Stacker 2", etc, than you should increase your water accordingly due to the fact that these products can cause dehydration. All of these products are similiar to a diuretic so watch for signs of dehydration.
Cranberry juice/extract can be helpful in mild cases of kidney and/or bladder discomfort. Research indicates that cranberry has a strong antioxidant platform and can helps alleviate mild bladder infections. Dosage is very dependant on age, medical history, etc..etc..so I can't advise a particular blanket dosage. Let your body be the indicator.
As for the cranberry regimine having an effect on your prostate health this is medically unfounded. I believe this person simply experienced the placebo effect. Water is never a bad thing, except when you don't introduce it into your body. Hope this helps! Doc

In my reply in the second paragraph, I intended on saying that "You Were NOT Mentally Handicapped". Sorry!! Good thing this wasn't a surgery and I just amputated your left leg instead of the right one!!

In highschool i got a real bad cold, the doc told me to drink as much water as i could. So i did, and i distinctly remember my kidneys hurting. I cant remember how much water i drank but it was a TON, i would guess like a gallon an hour for about 3 hours. I eased up on the water and they quite hurting and i was peeing every 10 min, no kidding. But my kidneys did hurt. You say that you drink that much in a day, durring what part of the day? i would guess that if you drank most of it in a short time frame that your kidneys could hurt.
