We were shuttled around several doctors and treated for different disorders such as kidney <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s, hernias, bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd kidney bacterial infections <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd peptic ulcers to no avail. Some thought we were crazy. Ultimately, a worm ova (for Schistosoma) was found in both our urine sediments and we were treated with praziquantel. There are other medications specific for different parasites.
I told my vet and he seemed to think there may be kidney <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s causing the problem <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd to give him aspirin for a week <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd get back to him if it did not improve, but the aspirin caused stomach irritation and didn't make any difference, so I stopped giving it to him. I am wondering if anyone out there can help me figure this out - could it be the food causing cramps or gas? Or a side effect of the Baytril? If it IS kidney stones, why is there no trouble with the flow of urine?
I recently discovered I had kidney <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s....<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd now, tomorrow, I am having my second lithotripsy, as the first one did not work. How long do they keep these miserable, stents in, and how many times can one get lithotripsies? an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doesan> surgery come next if the lithotripsies don't work? It's funny---I am a nurse, and have been for many, many years, but don't know these answers. I work full time, yet, and this stent is making my life very difficult.

Hello, any physical obstruction to the flow of urine, such as a structural abnormality, kidney stone, or the backflow of urine from the bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder into the ureters increases the likelihood of pyelonephritis.If the kidney <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s are causing obstruction to the urine flow you need treatment. You may need tests like blood work-up and ultrasound. Consult a nephrologist.I hope it helps. Best luck and regards!
This started with a severe kidney infection (very high white blood count &amp; nitrites &amp; blood in urine) where I had a fever &amp; was sore all down my entire trunk of my body with no burning when I urninated &amp; not just pain in my kidney, it was my entire body from my ribs down to my thighs. a day or two into the Cipro (had to take for 3 weeks) it started to hurt in my mid back waist area &amp; had a sharp pain in my side when I walked.
When I was younger I can recall seeing a specialist, being treated in a preventative measure for kidney infection, which I'll be honest as a child I was stubborn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd tongued half of my meds. I believe it was for the majority diagnosed as UTI's. as I got older, they became a little less frequent in my life and today all I can link it to is stress and dehydration. I was in a very stressful environment from birth until I was about 21 years old - last year.
I started having bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sms on Sunday <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd by Monday had excruciating pain in my back etc. I was diagnosed with a kidney stone. It is small...3mm. The CT scan showed the stone to be about 4" above my bladder. I've experienced kidney stones before...starting at the age of 10, I think this is my 4th time having kidney stones. (I'm now 47...

Stories like this make me so mad!! as for what can help you, I dont know..ive never had kidney <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s but my mom <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd brother have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd nothing helped them when they were in the worst of it either. The only thing i can suggest to you is this... can you get them removed /crushed via ultrasonic waves? I think they call it lithotripsy (sp?). THats what my mom had done..she sat in a hottub and ultrasonic waves thru the water shattered her stones.

Is it common for a patient to have back spasms when they have a kidney stone? The doctor said he felt <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd saw the back sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sms. Could it have been kidney sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sms if there is such a thing?
I had several kidney <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd hydronephrosis while pregnant (mostly due to improper or inability of the kidney to drain), but at that time my nephroptosis hadn't been diagnosed. If you have a good doctor (OB/GYN and Urologist) you should have minimal issues during pregnancy. If the docs are watching you closely this should avoid serious complication. Good luck!
It seems that I am literally dehydrating at night. (I am female, 47yrs old <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd have had kidney <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s a few times since the age of 10) an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doesan> anyone have any information on why I can't keep hydrated and if this is the reason my bladder is continually spasming? Thanks!
I've been hospitalized several times, had all kinds of tests - CaT scans with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd without contrast <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd dye, blood work, etc. etc. They've ruled out kidney stones, gallstones, appendix, ovarian cause, growths, etc. But the pain is so severe that I faint. It can last anywhere from 1/2 hour to many hours. Sometimes, Gas-x and advil seem to help. What helps the most is lying down and stretching in the opposite direction of the spasm.
If the kidney stone blocks the ureters <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd urine builds up in the kidney, then you have horrible pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd risk infections. Be sure he knows it came out.
05g nometaphrine- 399mcg metaphrines- 195mcg total 594mcg total protien urine 24 hour- 84 mcg aldostrine- 49mcg I am awaiting appt with new nephrologist to go over blood work.......................................................... However, urologist told me that my kidney disease <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd kidney <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s SHOULD NOT cause pain (unless actively trying to pass stones). i can completely tell its my kidneys that are inflammed on and off.
It tends to be more towards the middle or tip of the penis 95% of the time, though a few times, I've have an odd awareness of the region between my testicles <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd buttocks. Both bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd urethra discomfort are usually easily ignored, with occasionally an advil or two if the bladder is particularly bad. Often, there's little or no sensation of anything wrong at all. Ejaculation also feels...a little odd sometimes.
I'm a 23 year old female <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd have been dealing with constant kidney <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s for the past 2 1/2 years. In June of 2013, I took a trip to the ER due to excruciating side pain. a CT scan revealed a 6mm stone was beginning to drop into my ureter. They sent me home with pain meds and told me (nonchalantly) to go to a different hospital if it gets worse due to their hospital lacking an on-call Urologist.
I was pretty sure it was my kidney, because friday I had a lower UTI <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd saturday night I was having painful sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sms in my side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd back that was bringing me to my knees. When I went to the doctor he noticed that there was a lot of infection in my urine. He had a CT Scan done to check for any other organs that may be causing the pain.
I took her to the vet this morning, where they X-Rayed her, and found both Bladder and Kidney <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s. This will be the third time that she will be having her bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s removed. What I find so odd is that she never hunched her back or seemed to be in the discomfort that she is in now with the last two times she had bladder stones. I am not sure if it’s because she is showing signs of Kidney stones this time? Have you found out anything more with you Schnauzer?
but almost three months later I STILL have pain like I have bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder infections, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd in fact my urine has been dark, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd cloudly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd I have flank pain like a sharp knife and a feeling of pressure that hurts all day long!!! I am thinking that it must be from all of the invasive tests, surgeries, and past infections, kidney and bladder.I can only hope SOMEDaY the pain will soften, I hope this for you too!! I become so worn out!!
) I've taken care of many patients with abdominal/pelvic spasms and their discomfort is usually related to the urinary tract (kidney or bl<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>dder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s), their bowels (digestive disorders or infection), or their reproductive parts (ovarian cysts, pregnancy). Rarely is it a symptom caused by medications unless the effects are widespread (show elsewhere in the body.
i went back about a month later with same pain, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd they finally told me i had 2 kidney <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s in my ureter that were blocking my ureter, so my kidney would swell, and thats what caused the pain. the dr sent me to a specialist. i went to see specialist, and he said easy fix, they were gonna put me out, do a lithotripsy and it will be done, quick and easy..... a little while later we find out i'm pregnant! (YaY!
He is wanting to write this off as anxiety <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd muscle sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>sms. Here's the thing ;I am losing tons of weight. The pain happens at night and am waking up to the pain making this a hard pill to swallow as just anxiety. I have been near tears with how persistent this has become. He has run bloodwork on the liver and other things including the white blood cell count and everything has turned out to be ok.
