Kidney stones and muscle spasms

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones and muscle spasms


Avatar_f_tn I'm having a hard time controlling the muscle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spasm</span>s that are in my back. I'm taking Tylenol and onycodone since yesterday. I'm only comfortable taking the full prescription. I'd like to get off the medicine adap because of the baby. Has anyone found comfort besides heating pad-warm bathes and medicine?
Avatar_f_tn In the last few months, I've been getting random muscle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spasm</span>s(mostly at night) and a lot more pain in my feet and background-color: #dae8f4'>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?
Avatar_f_tn I'm so sorry that he background-color: #dae8f4'>is having thbackground-color: #dae8f4'>is much dbackground-color: #dae8f4'>iscomfort form hbackground-color: #dae8f4'>is Post-op <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s. I've never had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s. However, if they made an incbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ision of any kind, chances are that he background-color: #dae8f4'>isn't supposed to be in a bath tub. Usually they aren't albackground-color: #dae8f4'>lowed to get that area wet. PLEASE don't laugh TOO loudly at me IF there background-color: #dae8f4'>is no incbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ision as I must emphasize that I DON'T havae a clue as to how they are removed.
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'>stone</span>s 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 background-color: #dae8f4'>is wednesday and the pain background-color: #dae8f4'>is still happening.
Avatar_n_tn I am doing a Pilates workout, about an hour and 15 minutes, and I have been having these muscle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spasm</span>s, 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 dbackground-color: #dae8f4'>iscs and 3 bulging dbackground-color: #dae8f4'>iscs and I have degenerative dbackground-color: #dae8f4'>iscs in my neck, with arthritbackground-color: #dae8f4'>is. I believe there background-color: #dae8f4'>is arthritbackground-color: #dae8f4'>is in the spinal injury (base of my spine).
Avatar_f_tn Finally my dad rushed me to the ER where I spent 8 hours, they gave me an IV with tramadol and gravol. I had an ultrasound where ultimately they saw my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> was enlarged and my left ureter seemed to be blocked as no urine was vbackground-color: #dae8f4'>isualize escaping from it. However they weren't able to see any stones. Ultimately they sent me home with morphine pills and a strainer to pee in and told me if the pain doesn't improve or worsens in a week, come back.
Avatar_n_tn <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s? Frequent urination? Constipation? (Okay, that was a yes) Muscle and joint aches/pain? Depression? Fatigue? Menses problems (heavy fbackground-color: #dae8f4'>low, excessive cramps, irregular, hot flashes)? Frequent headaches? heartburn? Faster than normal heartbeat at rest? If so, check out thyroid and parathyroid dbackground-color: #dae8f4'>isease. How about any spinal nerve background-color: #dae8f4'>issues (background-color: #dae8f4'>low back) or symptoms of multiple sclerosbackground-color: #dae8f4'>is? (Sciatic nerve irritation, cauda equina, recent trauma to tailbone or cervix).
Avatar_f_tn Yet, say I spent an entire weekend sleeping little and giving the house a more than usually vigorous cleaning, I would afterward experience extremely painful muscle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spasm</span>s, and I would have many deep, dark brubackground-color: #dae8f4'>ises in many areas of my body. I would assume they were from bumping into things, from carrying large loads of household items, etc.
Avatar_n_tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spasm</span>s going under my right arm, under and into the breast. Went to a different massage therapbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ist who really presssed too hard and the pain got worse. I had breast cancer seven years ago, so immediately called my oncologbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ist, had a cat scan of the chest. Nothing.
4525198_tn?1425523277 I have had background-color: #dae8f4'>issues and went to the ER with what I thought was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s of some sort as well....many muscle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spasm</span>s too.... Did you not have EDS ruled out b4 surgery?
Avatar_n_tn A subsequent CT scan revealed I had 2 additionall ( 2mm non-obstructing) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s in my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> and a cluster of at least (four 2-3 mm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s in my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span>). They were also non-obstructive. I've been told by a couple of doctors and urologbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ists 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.
Avatar_n_tn Nurse talked to me about the symptoms and said it might just be muscle/ligament pain or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s. 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 mbackground-color: #dae8f4'>iss 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 background-color: #dae8f4'>isn't touching the pain.
Avatar_f_tn Stories like thbackground-color: #dae8f4'>is make me so mad!! As for what can help you, I dont know..ive never had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s 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 background-color: #dae8f4'>is thbackground-color: #dae8f4'>is... 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.
188306_tn?1274136222 i think the pain background-color: #dae8f4'>is too high up to be gall <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s and also it can happen on both sides
4943237_tn?1428994695 When i went to doc and thought I had a UTI but the test came back negative so she sent me for xrays and that showed the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s. She sent me home and said drink lots of water and use a heating pad and pain reliever and wait for it to pass. She said if the pain got too unbearable to go to the emergency room. I ended up passing it but haven't had the symptoms again. I'm hoping I pass the others with no background-color: #dae8f4'>issues. Big HUGS your way.
Avatar_n_tn I was recently diagnosed with Hashi's and am having a lot of anxiety. I too have a lot of muscle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spasm</span>s in my calfs, hands, arms and back, very annoying and of course, worrbackground-color: #dae8f4'>isome. Did anyone with Hashi's experience rash activity? I recently developed a rash on my back and torso-not a bad one-it background-color: #dae8f4'>is called pyritbackground-color: #dae8f4'>is rosea (that's what the doc said). I've only been on Synthroid for 1 month.
1501377_tn?1291512278 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 hbackground-color: #dae8f4'>istory and who knows you could have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s or something in your past that I'm not aware please ask him first.
Avatar_f_tn I would experience frequent muscle cramps and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spasm</span>s in my side, abdomen, and background-color: #dae8f4'>lower back. The pain and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spasm</span>s are generally triggered by movement. After a year and a half of dealing with thbackground-color: #dae8f4'>is pain on my left side, the same symptoms began happening on the right side of my body while completely dbackground-color: #dae8f4'>isappearing from my left. Since then, my pain has alternated between left and right. The pain background-color: #dae8f4'>is absolutely unbearable.
Avatar_f_tn I'm seeing doctors constantly but still nothing. I also have heart <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spasm</span>s along with the other muscle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spasm</span>s/twitches, chest pain and a burning knot on the side of my head that brings on major dbackground-color: #dae8f4'>isorientation. It's a lot of fun. Good luck to your husband. Let me know if you come up with anything.
Avatar_f_tn I'm a 17 yr old female and I'm tired of doc after doc telling me I'm having muscle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spasm</span>s (the obvious) then giving me muscle relaxers. I'd much rather find the cause. Has anyone else experienced anything else like thbackground-color: #dae8f4'>is? Or have any idea what could be causing all thbackground-color: #dae8f4'>is? I've never had any injuries that could do anything like thbackground-color: #dae8f4'>is. 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.
Avatar_n_tn google diagnosbackground-color: #dae8f4'>is -- thbackground-color: #dae8f4'>is saved my life! I looked up symptoms of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> infections, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> dbackground-color: #dae8f4'>isease -- none of these seemed to match. It was THbackground-color: #dae8f4'>is "blog" web-post from 2009 that alerted me to the possibility of pulmonary embolbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ism. -- ME? No, I'm too young for that diagnosbackground-color: #dae8f4'>is... I'm 31 and in primarily good health!

However, urologbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ist told me that my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> dbackground-color: #dae8f4'>isease and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <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.

Here's the thing ;I am losing tons of weight. The pain happens at night and am waking up to the pain making thbackground-color: #dae8f4'>is a hard pill to swalbackground-color: #dae8f4'>low as just anxiety. I have been near tears with how persbackground-color: #dae8f4'>istent thbackground-color: #dae8f4'>is has become.

1549643_tn?1293987479 Does anyone know how long renal pain lingers on for if you had an infection in them. I'm thinking maybe the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spasm</span>s just made the muscle area sore. Doing much better yet they still hurt under my ribs.
Avatar_n_tn I have been having blurred vbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ision, 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.
Avatar_n_tn I have also in the last week felt hot flashes on my back and neck. Had muscle <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spasm</span>s in my background-color: #dae8f4'>lower right front side. It seems to getting more frequent and usually stops when I get up and start walking.
Avatar_n_tn all make me have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>spasm</span>s. 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.
168348_tn?1379360675 I have Magnesium in the house from Uro days and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s, too and have banannas so something will work I'm sure.
168348_tn?1379360675 They were able to get 9 out of 9 stone pockets out of my right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> and 9 out of 11 in the left. They also busted up the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s (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 rbackground-color: #dae8f4'>isk at cutting them then at leaving them alone! Posted for MSKShelly by ChitChatNine ...
