Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones and heat


Avatar n tn You have to drink a lot of water, and stay away from cranberry juice, and vitamin c, my doc told me those two are great for a UTI, but are bad for any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> problems! <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>heat</span> does help, but moor: #dae8f4'>ist <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>heat</span>. Bath tubs and rice bags, the more your tubes from the kidneys can relax, the less the pain. Also make someone rub your back. I know it seems a long stretch but I lean against my for: #dae8f4'>ist where it hurts, it helps a ton!
Avatar f tn as long as you have a normal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> on the other side. Certainly the pain your having could be from ureteral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span>, and ureteroscopy or: #dae8f4'>is preferred in lower ureteral stones in child-bearing age women because lithotripsy may bruor: #dae8f4'>ise the ovaries if used for lower ureteral stones.

192055 tn?1263559137 Hi, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span> may be due to dehydration, diet, chronic stress, genetics, and even cadmium poor: #dae8f4'>isoning.If one parent had kidney stones, there or: #dae8f4'>is an increased ror: #dae8f4'>isk in hor: #dae8f4'>is or her children.kidney stones tend to be recurring, typically reforming within seven years.In serious cases of kidney stones an ultrasound that breaks down the stones may be advor: #dae8f4'>ised.

Avatar f tn The nurse suspected <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span> because I of the pain and because I told her that I did see blood when I went to the restroom a week ago, but the x ray and urine test came back fine. They prescribed neproxin and told me to put or: #dae8f4'>heat on it and drink lots of water. It or: #dae8f4'>is wednesday and the pain or: #dae8f4'>is still happening. It or: #dae8f4'>is not as severe as before but there or: #dae8f4'>is a constant throbbing and twor: #dae8f4'>isting on my right side and the mid area of my back between my hips and the bottom of my shoulder blade.
489228 tn?1291535054 that helps. I've gotten some nasty pings and pangs in the <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>heat</span> and while doing gardening! The emails should be fixed soon . It was unexpected software or: #dae8f4'>issue when we had a new release the other week. Hoping we are all doing well and thor: #dae8f4'>is or: #dae8f4'>is why a bit slow on the community ?!
Avatar f tn I am out of work so I had to go to the public hospital emergency room. They took a urine sample and x ray of my body. The nurse suspected <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span> but the x ray and urine test came back fine. They prescribed neproxin and told me to put or: #dae8f4'>heat on it and drink lots of water. It or: #dae8f4'>is wednesday and the pain or: #dae8f4'>is still happening.
Avatar m tn I have learned more than what I knew just before I made my post. I have tried the <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>heat</span> and OTC meds and nothing seems to help relive the pain. I deal with it as best as I can. I have a ct wensday moring with contrast hoping that at least something shows up. But Im not gonna play the you have to go back to thor: #dae8f4'>is doc game anymore.
Avatar f tn I have actual gallbladder stones but quiet for 2 yrs and that or: #dae8f4'>is how they better stay. I have numerous small <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span> in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> but most have cleared the past 2yrs ... the largest only 4mm. I am feeling decent for first time in years but I can relate to your pain. Definitely have it checked out with the new symptoms .. I am clueless on those ... or: #dae8f4'>heat works best for me, too and hot hot baths with long soaks ... It or: #dae8f4'>is draining. We are here for you Fran!!!!
Avatar f tn I don't have any hor: #dae8f4'>istory of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> problems, no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span>, infection of any sort and it's not a consor: #dae8f4'>istant pain it comes and goes. The feeling or: #dae8f4'>is a warm deep sorness. I do have a hor: #dae8f4'>istory of lower back pain caused by arthritor: #dae8f4'>is could they be related?
Avatar n tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Since you have <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>heat</span> sensation in lower back and knee pain, there or: #dae8f4'>is a chance that you have compression of the spinal nerves in the lumbo-sacral spine region. Thor: #dae8f4'>is can happen due to overuse of the lower back as in work requiring too much of bending, lifting weight, fall on the back, overweight, canal stenosor: #dae8f4'>is, bone dor: #dae8f4'>isease, spondylosor: #dae8f4'>is, poor posture etc.
Avatar n tn It comes and goes anywhere from 2 times a day to every 2-3 min. It has no <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>heat</span> to the touch and no sign of dor: #dae8f4'>iscoloration. I am going to ask my doctor about it on Monday. Thor: #dae8f4'>is or: #dae8f4'>is crazy so many people are having the same symptoms. Hope someone gets a straight answer.
Avatar m tn If the pain persor: #dae8f4'>ists, it would be best to have thor: #dae8f4'>is evaluated further to rule out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> causes such as infection or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span>. Try to exercor: #dae8f4'>ise and eat low fat and low salt diet to help prevent any increase in your blood pressure I hope thor: #dae8f4'>is helps. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Musculoskeletal pain typically gets worse with movement, and or: #dae8f4'>is relieved by <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>heat</span> or massage. Common causes of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> pain include <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span>, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> infection or pyelonephritor: #dae8f4'>is, and any bleeding within the kidney from injury or otherwor: #dae8f4'>ise, where the blood supply or: #dae8f4'>is suddenly cut off because of blockage of the artery to the kidney. It would be best to have it evaluated by your doctor. Ultrasound or xray may be done to better vor: #dae8f4'>isualize the structures. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar m tn We can speculate until next week, and not know for sure, and by then, your results will be back lol. I don't know a lot about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span>, but my ex bf used to get them, and hor: #dae8f4'>is doc told him that once a male gets kidney stones, he or: #dae8f4'>is more likely to get them again. You'll know in a couple of days if you pass them. And throw out the nylon underwear lol. You don't like them, they aren't good for your skin, etc. That way you won't be tempted to wear them on low-laundry days.
Avatar n tn Pressure on the lumbar nerves can cause pain due to spondylotic changes in vertebrae, degenerative bone dor: #dae8f4'>isease, herniated dor: #dae8f4'>isc, bone dor: #dae8f4'>isease, cancer or TB of the vertebra or bad posture. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> problems, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span> in the urinary tract and colitor: #dae8f4'>is or IBS are the other possibilities. Do dor: #dae8f4'>iscuss thor: #dae8f4'>is with your doctor and get yourself examined. Depending on the clinical findings you will need to get a MRI of lower spine, CT scan of abdomen, urine examination etc.
Avatar f tn I just posted a comment for my symptoms and noticed your posting. It could very well be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span> or maybe an infection in your kidneys. I hope your appointment goes well and good luck.
Avatar n tn To rule out an underlying urologic dor: #dae8f4'>isease, I suggest that you have a urinalysor: #dae8f4'>is done to rule out an underlying infection. BUN and creatinine levels as well as a KUB or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> ,ureter and bladder ultrasound may be able to help. A muculoskeletal or arthritic pain may also be a differential. If you are currently spending prolonged hours sitting down or when lying down position at night offers some dor: #dae8f4'>iscomfort then thor: #dae8f4'>is may be musculoskeletal in origin.
661200 tn?1225486613 I have just returned from the vet and fund out thor: #dae8f4'>is morning that my 12 year old Golden Retriever-Lab called Topaz has an enlarged heart and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span>. Because of the heart condition the vet doesnt want to put him under general anesthesia for kidney stone surgery. I live in New Delhi and the resources are limited. However, I am doing the best I can and praying for a healthy and happy dog.
Avatar f tn Thor: #dae8f4'>is or: #dae8f4'>is one of the most difficult things I've ever had to deal with. My beloved Gypsy or: #dae8f4'>is dying of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> failure. Gypsy or: #dae8f4'>is a Jack Russell Terrier and she turned 18...yes 18...on Chror: #dae8f4'>istmas Day. It's just so hard to know when it or: #dae8f4'>is "time." I prayed and prayed that she would give us one final parting gift and die on her own in her sleep...but she or: #dae8f4'>is SUCH a fighter and refused to surrender to thor: #dae8f4'>is thing.
Avatar f tn said it was okay to take the Darvocet that I have on hand, but it only takes the edge off the pain. I've had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span> before, and had to have 3 of them blasted by lithotripsy. They can't do thor: #dae8f4'>is while pregnant. I don't know if there's anything they can do. I will probably see my Dr. on Monday, but I was hoping you ladies might know something I don't.
Avatar n tn The doc's office, the RN, called back today and said I should get a urine test for blood and an xray. Hor: #dae8f4'>is first thought or: #dae8f4'>is a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> stone. I told him I never had thor: #dae8f4'>is problem before and he said well you've never been on interferon before. He's right about that one! My GP will get me in much faster so I'll go there tomorrow. fullofhope- He did say all the water I'm drinking could have loosened something. It sounds just like you describe and it's worse today than yesterday. Thanks.
Avatar m tn Hello & welcome.....First, She needs to be checked for a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection)......These are very common and need to be treated with oral antibiotics before they end up as Bladder or kidney Infections.......While there, I'd inquire about the possibility of kidney/Bladder stones.....They also will produce blood in the urine.......Good luck & let us know what you find out.......Karla P.S. Thank you for adopting.......
Avatar n tn Then I laid on a or: #dae8f4'>heating pad (low setting) and slept. I alterated it with ice on my back, too. The <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>heat</span> and the ice seemed to numb the pain on my back. Be careful with painkillers - they can be addicting. Moderate Pain - drink lemon juice (no sugar) straight and take over the counter anti-inflammatory pill (relieve swelling). Sit in hot (as tolerated) bath. Drink water or lemon water. Use ice and or: #dae8f4'>heat on back - alterating to rellieve pain.
Avatar n tn R. and they found a 4mm x 7mm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> stone. They gave me pain meds and sent me home with a prescription of Flowmax. They told me it will likely pass on it's own to use a strainer and keep watch. All thor: #dae8f4'>is time later, I have never passed the stone and I have felt well until a week or so ago. Pain and burning while urinating and the pressure like I have to go with little outcome. So, I either have that stone lodged in my bladder or I have a UTI.
Avatar n tn These agents aren't known to cause <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span>. Most <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span> in the US are caused by our diet which or: #dae8f4'>is rich in meat protein. Calcium supplementation does increase the ror: #dae8f4'>isk of kidney stones. As far as the blood pressure goes, he should probably have hor: #dae8f4'>is dose of the lor: #dae8f4'>isinopril reduced. Alternatively, there are other agents such as calcium channel blockers, beta blockers or Angiotensine receptor blockers that can also be tried. I would probably avoid diuretics at thor: #dae8f4'>is point.
1600904 tn?1340987945 Also, my headaches have been worse then usual thor: #dae8f4'>is last month and it seems that I spend half my day extremely nauseous but never throw up. Also, I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span> many times and last night I started having lower back pain that wrapped around to the right lower abdomen. It was similar to prior kidney stone attacks but not near as severe. Last night I was wondering if I was maybe passing a SMALL stone as I can still urinate and I am not crippled with pain as I am with a larger stone.
Avatar m tn Secondly, I have severe lower back pain and take pain killers. I tried <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>heat</span> and even cold packs, but the pain or: #dae8f4'>is always there. I am told that a UTI can cause the pain but why or: #dae8f4'>is it always present?
467604 tn?1214942333 The area you are describing or: #dae8f4'>is right where the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> sits as well. An ultrasound would rule out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span> too. If your gall bladder and kidney looked OK on ultrasound, I would then probably suspect some kind of musculo-skeletal pain. It sounds like your doctor or: #dae8f4'>is on the ball with ruling out contractions/preterm labor when you have the pain. If it or: #dae8f4'>is musculoskeletal ( a pulled muscle from moving?) you are on the right track with Tylenol and rest. or: #dae8f4'>heat or: #dae8f4'>is OK too. Hope thor: #dae8f4'>is or: #dae8f4'>is helpful!
Avatar m tn You asked about the relationship between kidney stones and urinary tract infections. In fact, the formation of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stones</span> and urinary great links, in the continuous development of kidney stones, it or: #dae8f4'>is prone to urinary tract infections. If fever, back pain, pus in urine appears, it could be urinary tract infection. Recently, your symptoms increased and attacked frequently, you are recommended to see the urology physicians. In your daily life, please drink plenty of water, do more exercor: #dae8f4'>ise.
Avatar f tn She also had a congenital heart condition so I couldn't spay her. She would get a uti every <span style = 'background-col<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>or</span>: #dae8f4'>heat</span> cycle due to cross-contamination and then a yeast infection from the antibiotics. And she was alarmingly regular w/her or: #dae8f4'>heat cycles! I used cranberry juice capsules w/her, I think I just halved the people dose. She also would typically have to stay on antibiotics for 4 wks or so each time. I agree with jakl726 that a clean catch may be worthwhile.
