Appendicitis kidney infection

Common Questions and Answers about Appendicitis kidney infection


Avatar m tn It sounds like a muscular thing. It could also be a bladder or kidney infection but if you don't feel any pain or burning during urination that is not it. If it were an appendicitis the pain would be excruciating. Try to relax and don't stress. You can take an over the counter pain reliever and apply a heating pad to help alleviate the pain.
Avatar n tn Also, headaches, vomiting, lower back pains may point towards a kidney infection. A pain in the right upper quadrant of your abdomen may also point to a gallsbladder stone .In your case, other abdominal problems like a ureteral stone should also be excluded. Keep us posted.

Avatar n tn ) it would be safer to have appendicitis ruled out if you also have fever or vomiting. If you suspect a kidney stone, Do increase your intake of fluids to more than 2000 ml per day. If suspecting an infection, do the above along with increasing vitamin C-rich foods. Do keep us posted on your doubts and progress.

Avatar f tn I had a simular experience had a kidney infection (1st one never had kidney/bladder infection before) given oral antibiotics once completed symptoms went away but ran a low grade (100°) fever that was constant and every night would get the chills with shaking and teeth chattering that lasted 20-30min. Also had a dull pain in right flank. They ran a ct scan looking for appendicitis and found i had a large staghorn (sturvite) kidney stone.
Avatar n tn If you went to the doctor and he did a urinalysis, you might still show crystals in the urine if that is what it was. If it was a kidney infection, you would have a fever and the area should be tender.
727090 tn?1268842948 HAS ANYONE EXPERIENCED APPENDICITIS??? I have been having problems with sharp pains and cramps shooting from my hip bone down into my rectum. It hurts to grunt or move much, but goes away after passing bad smelling gas but then later returns to repeat. I do get constipated ALOT and was diagnosed w/IBS. Iam verrrryy bloated! The same day i had these pains, i just got done eating kidney bean salad w/onions. Couple hrs later had the pain. I had burritos for dinner that same night.
Avatar n tn For low back pain and abdominal pain, conditions like kidney infections, urinary tract stones, appendicitis, spine disorders have to be ruled out. Seek consult with your primary physician for a complete assessment and diagnostic tests.A warm compress over the area and OTC analgesics may be able to help temporarily. Do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn They thought it was appendicitis, so they had me drink contrast and had a CT scan done. The scan showed a 5mm blockage in my ureter, which they assumed to be a kidney stone. They gave me 4 different Rxs and sent me on my way. Since then, I've had an ultra sound and an XRay done which both show no sign of a kidney stone. However I've still had pain that came and went from my side, down lower, and now feels like it's right at the bottom of my urethra.
Avatar n tn They thought it was stones, or appendicitis, or maybe even an infection or bacteria. Funny thing, there were about 3 or 4 other people in ER the same night, with the same thing? Could be a new strain of bug or virus going around. Hopefully its not related to anything from DC, ie: anthrax, or whatever. The doc did suggest a bacteria, and expect it to get worse over the next few days, but I am fine now. Still puzzling, though.
Avatar f tn Hello, The cause of pelvic pain could be due to kidney stones, pelvic infections, urine infections, twisted ovarian cyst or rupture of ovarian cyst, appendicitis or any other referred pain due to other organ infections. You should get it evaluated from a gynecologist. Pelvic inflammatory disease causing infection should be ruled out. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar n tn I went to the ER and was tested for Kidney Infection. The urine test only showed small amounts of bacteria but they sent me home with a three day dose of antibiotics anyways. They said that they only thing it could be was appendicitis or my ovaries.Today the pain is locolized to my right side, starting right below my ribcage and radiates down my flank and into my lower back. I feel the worst when i sit. Like I'm putting pressure on something below my ribcage that I shouldn't.
Avatar n tn An abdominal Xray is used to look for kidney stones. Bacteria in the urine and flank pain can mean a kidney infection / pyelonephritis but this is usually treated with at least ten days of antibiotics . Your urine culture can direct your antibiotic treatment. I doubt they would have sent you home if they really thought you had an appendicitis. Gallstones can also be in the differential and can be ruled out with an ultrasound.
Avatar n tn I don't know what the antibiotics were, but one was a intra-muscular shot in the arm and the other was a drink which was mixed from powder and water. I believe the intent was to treat any possible Chlamydia/Gonnorhea infection(s). I was advised to stop taking the cipro, so I stopped. My symptoms seemed to improve somewhat, but I still was experiencing the following: 1. Frequent Urination 2. Weaker than usual stream 3. Painful ejaculation a. Symptoms 1, 2, 5 worse after ejaculation. 4.
633143 tn?1262137135 They found a tender spot on my right side, which they said suggested I could have a kidney stone or a kidney infection, but that it was possible that it could be both or all three problems. They felt my leg pain was a separate issue. They scheduled me for an ultrasound at the end of the week and had me do a urinalysis. At this point, I was still not having the frequent or painful urination, blood in the urine, bladder pain, etc that they kept asking me about.
Avatar n tn Hi, my friend is 4 months pregnant and she got he kidney infection and took the antibiotics for that and now again after couple of days she is getting stomach pain and the doctors are suspecting that it may be because of the appendicitis and since she is 4 months pregnant they will not do the ultra sound and they are going to do the small surgery to see whether the pain is related to appendicitis or not. Now, please any one tell me what's going on with her.
Avatar m tn If pulse is more than 80 and blood shows high TLC counts, is suggestive of appendicitis. In case of ureter stone, urine usually shows infection and ultrasound is diagnostic, pain is usually radiating in nature. Well colon pain is colicky or dull in nature, do you have recent history of diarrhea?
Avatar f tn I ended up having appendicitis and needed emergency surgery. So, if it's something you're worried about I'd definitely see a Dr.
Avatar n tn It could be a kidney infection. Please google kidney infection or even bladder infection and see if the description matches it. Something about it being on the right side rings a bell for me about kidney infections sometimes being confused with appendicitis because of that.
Avatar n tn The IVP test was ordered for abdominal pain.. but it was related to recent kidney infection and operation. I just want to know why I am still having pain while going to the bathroom, and especially the severe pain on my right side, and this has been a chronic and on going. One infection after another. Since my Pyeloplasty operation was on my right kidney, the IVP test rulled out any problems with kidney/bladder. Is it possible it could be an infection..maybe in the appendix?
Avatar m tn The pain, can at times come and go and not give the classic picture. Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, infection in kidney, kidney stones, constipation, ovary involvement in women, ectopic pregnancy in women, mesentry involvement, and an abscess in rectus abdominis muscle or psoas muscle can all cause lower right abdomen pain. Right upper abdominal pain can be due to cholecystitis (inflammation of gall bladder), stones in gall bladder, or due to duodenal ulcer.
Avatar f tn If you had or have a uti it could be that it turned into a kidney infection. I would call the drs.
Avatar f tn I know cramping is normal but this is not a normal cramp. I've been medicated for a kidney infection already and I'm scared I could be having appendicitis. Help!
Avatar n tn The pain, can at times come and go and not give the classic picture. Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, infection in kidney, kidney stones, constipation, and an abscess in rectus abdominis muscle or psoas muscle can all cause lower right abdomen pain. Ectopic pregnancy, cysts of the ovary, extra uterine endometriosis too should be looked into.
Avatar n tn Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease, infection in kidney, kidney stones, an abscess in rectus abdominis muscle or psoas muscle and constipation are the other causes. It can also be due to inguinal hernia.
Avatar m tn You were right in suspecting appendicitis and kidney stones. Kidney stones can persist for years and cause symptoms only when they start moving. They can move, cause pain and again remain in a position for long periods of time. Similarly chronic appendicitis too can behave this way with bouts of pain, localization of infection and inflammation and a symptom free period.
Avatar f tn Lower right abdomen pain is commonly due to appendicitis but this has been removed, so ruled out. Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, infection in kidney, kidney stones, constipation, ovary involvement in women (PCOS), ectopic pregnancy in women, mesentry (a thin tissue that carries the blood, nerves and lymphatics for the intestine) involvement, and an abscess in rectus abdominis muscle or psoas muscle can all cause lower right abdomen pain.
Avatar n tn What I feel, chronic pain of infectious etiology can be due to TB or Gonococcoal infection. Appendicitis and also drug induced colitis can have chronic presentation. Most important is to rule out any pelvic inflammatory disease or any ovarian neoplasm or Vulvovaginitis. Nutritional deficiency like Thiamine deficiency can also cause chronic pain. You can consult with gynecologist and also physician at earliest. Bye.
Avatar f tn chronic involvement of appendix (many a times ultrasound misses this as the appendix in such cases is hidden behind loops of intestine and typical symptoms of appendicitis are absent), involvement of kidney and inflammation of your intestine.
