Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones and muscle spasms

kidney-stones

In the last few months, I've been getting random muscle spasms(mostly at night) and a lot more pain in my feet and lower legs. Almost feels like muscle cramping in my calf. But also, for the last 6 weeks, I have had vertigo steady. Worse at night when rolling in bed but have had to leave work(unable to drive) and have almost fell down at home. Feel at a loss..... But back to the doctor I will go.. Anyone else ever been told it was Lupus, It's not Lupus?
I'm so sorry that he is having this much discomfort form his Post-op Kidney Stones. I've never had Kidney Stones. However, if they made an incision of any kind, chances are that he isn't supposed to be in a bath tub. Usually they aren't allowed to get that area wet. PLEASE don't laugh TOO loudly at me IF there is no incision as I must emphasize that I DON'T havae a clue as to how they are removed.
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 kidney stones but the x ray and urine test came back fine. They prescribed neproxin and told me to put heat on it and drink lots of water. It is wednesday and the pain is still happening.
I am doing a Pilates workout, about an hour and 15 minutes, and I have been having these muscle spasms, and they sometimes start in my upper abs, under my right breast, but radiate out to my arms and legs and I have to sit down, I feel faint. I have fibromyalgia, and it started with a back injury with 2 herniated discs and 3 bulging discs and I have degenerative discs in my neck, with arthritis. I believe there is arthritis in the spinal injury (base of my spine).
Kidney stones? Frequent urination? Constipation? (Okay, that was a yes) Muscle and joint aches/pain? Depression? Fatigue? Menses problems (heavy flow, excessive cramps, irregular, hot flashes)? Frequent headaches? heartburn? Faster than normal heartbeat at rest? If so, check out thyroid and parathyroid disease. How about any spinal nerve issues (low back) or symptoms of multiple sclerosis? (Sciatic nerve irritation, cauda equina, recent trauma to tailbone or cervix).
1. Is there a way to prevent these spasms? 2. What causes the bruising and is this something I should go see a doctor about?
But I had a similar attack on the right side about nine days ago, and I let it go for a few days. I could feel the muscle spasms going under my right arm, under and into the breast. Went to a different massage therapist who really presssed too hard and the pain got worse. I had breast cancer seven years ago, so immediately called my oncologist, had a cat scan of the chest. Nothing.
A subsequent CT scan revealed I had 2 additionall ( 2mm non-obstructing) stones in my right kidney and a cluster of at least (four 2-3 mm stones in my left kidney). They were also non-obstructive. I've been told by a couple of doctors and urologists that they cannot be the cause of my pain, even though the pain feels just like when I had obsturctive ones. I can also feel the damn things moving around and it causes me to have kidney spasms.
Nurse talked to me about the symptoms and said it might just be muscle/ligament pain or kidney stones. She told me to take Tylenol and they would check me out at my next appointment, next TUESDAY morning. (they did offer an emergency spot for me today/thursday but it was during class that I couldn't miss even though it meant that I was sitting there in tears during the test). She told me if it got too bad to go back to the ER. Anyways. tylenol isn't touching the pain.
Stories like this make me so mad!! As for what can help you, I dont know..ive never had kidney stones but my mom and brother have and 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.
I was recently diagnosed with Hashi's and am having a lot of anxiety. I too have a lot of muscle spasms in my calfs, hands, arms and back, very annoying and of course, worrisome. Did anyone with Hashi's experience rash activity? I recently developed a rash on my back and torso-not a bad one-it is called pyritis rosea (that's what the doc said). I've only been on Synthroid for 1 month.
usually we would not suggest any supplements or vitamins to someone at your stage since we are not doctors so ask the doctor first - these seem harmless enough but I dont know your medical history and who knows you could have had kidney stones or something in your past that I'm not aware of....so please ask him first.
I'm seeing doctors constantly but still nothing. I also have heart spasms along with the other muscle spasms/twitches, chest pain and a burning knot on the side of my head that brings on major disorientation. It's a lot of fun. Good luck to your husband. Let me know if you come up with anything.
I'm a 17 yr old female and I'm tired of doc after doc telling me I'm having muscle spasms (the obvious) then giving me muscle relaxers. I'd much rather find the cause. Has anyone else experienced anything else like this? Or have any idea what could be causing all this? I've never had any injuries that could do anything like this. It seems like it'll never stop and my mom even told me I might just have to live with it. But I don't want to live with random pain.
google diagnosis -- this saved my life! I looked up symptoms of kidney infections, kidney stones, kidney disease -- none of these seemed to match. It was THIS "blog" web-post from 2009 that alerted me to the possibility of pulmonary embolism. -- ME? No, I'm too young for that diagnosis... I'm 31 and in primarily good health!
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 and kidney stones SHOULD NOT cause pain (unless actively trying to pass stones). i can completely tell its my kidneys that are inflammed on and off.
I USED TO POST HERE I HAVE TWITCHES ALL OVER FOR 18 MONTHS CALVES HAVE GONE NONSTOP MOST OF THAT TIME. NORMAL EMG AND 3 EXAMS BY A NERVE AND MUSCLE SPECIALIST AND HE TOLD ME FROM THE START I DID NOT HAVE ALS. NO WEAKNESS AND NO OTHER SYMPTOMES THE WOLE TIME. LOOK IN THE FORMER POSTS HERE AND YOU WILL GET SOME GREAT RESPONCES FROM THE DOCS, THIS NEW DOC DOES NOT SEAM TO WANT TO GO ON THE LINE MUCH WHEN IT COMES TO TWITCHING.
He is wanting to write this off as anxiety and muscle spasms. 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.
I have been having blurred vision, dizziness, pressure and fullness in ears and head and behind eyes, muscle weakness, joint pain, crick in neck, and severe fatigue for over a year now. Oh! also heart pounding and times where I can hear it in my head and feel it. Also deep itching sensations in my muscles that of course you can't scratch like pins and needles. Been to ENT nothing wrong with ears, been to primary doctor MRI normal. Switched Doctors because primary basically laughed at me.
I have also in the last week felt hot flashes on my back and neck. Had muscle spasms in my lower right front side. It seems to getting more frequent and usually stops when I get up and start walking.
all make me have spasms. I had IC for Years and never knew that's what was wrong with me. I just thought I had a bad back. I never had the urgency, frequency,etc until I had a hyster back last Sept. I got a uti from the cathter, but after the infection was gone, I still had the symptoms....just no infection. My ob/gyn sent me to a Uro and he found my problem. He's such a good doctor, I just love him to death! Now don't forget about the Primeal Defense for the C-dif.
I have Magnesium in the house from Uro days and kidney stones, too and have banannas so something will work I'm sure.
They were able to get 9 out of 9 stone pockets out of my right kidney and 9 out of 11 in the left. They also busted up the stones (2 bigger ones in the left kidney that should pass easily now!) The 2 in the left he did not try to do since they were so mild there was more risk at cutting them then at leaving them alone! Posted for MSKShelly by ChitChatNine ...
However, it has been at least a couple years since then, and I still feel some leg discomfort or soreness (though greatly reduced), and my muscle endurance throughout my body has continued to suffer (for example, I can't swim nearly as many laps as I used to be able to, because the muscles just give out prematurely).
I spent the next couple of months having those attacks less frequent with a healthy diet and proper exercise of running. One month ago I had severe pain radiating from my kidneys. I have had kidney stones and cysts in the past so I immediately went to a high water/cranberry juice intake. I took a urine test at the doctor and it showed that there was hematuria. At work my legs started to hurt and go numb. The numbness went away and now I have muscle twinges. I also have constipation.
polyp in gallbladder, stones in both kidneys, a complex kidney cyst and a slightly enlarged liver. So my OB sent me to a Urologist. The Urologist sent me in for a urine test. When the results came back, no infection was found. As for the stones in the kidney, he said they're too large to pass and gave me the option to have them removed surgically. Option?,,,,, what else could be done?!!!!! As for the complex cyst, the Urologist only said that it needs to be monitored every 8 months or so.
2 1/2 years of disabling muscle pain in my neck, chest and back. 3 years of research and reading (after dozens of worthless doctor visits). Fixed myself. 99% pain fee now.
YES on the alcoholic beverages; during my stone producing time (I am stone free right now by some miracle) I had issues with fruit juices, too .. a stinging, burning sharp pings and pangs. Also different foods can set it off. Shelly may know more than me on the foods since foods weren't too much of an issue for me. But the running has something to do with it for certain ..
Do you get kidney stones? Headaches? Muscle twitches/spasms? Joint or bone pain? Palpitations? Heartburn? Gut pains? Urinate frequently? Do you know if your blood calcium levels are elevated? Check out Parathyroid.com -it may have information that could explain all of your symptoms...good luck...
Can they detect kidney stones without using contrast during the CT scan. They did not use contrast. And are there certain stones that do not show up in a CT or Xray? Any hints as to what this might be?? It is driving me crazy not knowing what is going on or unable to find a doctor who can determine what is going on. Very, very depressing.
