Go to the doctor. Seriously. There is a whole host of things that can cause that; infection, cancer, kidney failure. No one else's experience will help with that.

When I was little my father used to make lamb kidney for breakfast on the weekends. He'd fry onions and add the chopped kidneys with lots of ground coriander, black pepper, and some cumin. Sometimes he would add mushrooms.
