kidney-stones

I am having a constant mild pain in my both sides of the abdomen (more on right side) from last 10 days, which spreads to the lower mid part of abdomen too. It becomes more during I travel and feel jerks and when I do a motion that puts presuure on these parts including taking a side while slepping. This is usually lower while I sleep and increases as the day progresses, but always there.
I was diagnosed with medullinary sponge kidneys when i had my son 13 years ago, i also have a duplex system on both sides. I always have stones but treatment isnt possible until they move into a certain part of the kidneys. I have constant pain on the right side which never goes away, it can change depending on the stones size.
They often occur in premature infants. There are different types of kidney stones. The exact cause depends on the type of stone. Stones can form when urine contains too much of certain substances. These substances can create small crystals that become stones. The stones take weeks or months to form. •Calcium stones are most common. They are more common in men between age 20-30.
Yes, you can have stones on both sides. I have had them in both kidneys. With me, one side hurt more than the other. I had 2.5 yrs worth of pain and finally about 8 weeks ago I passed a 4.0mm stone that was deep in the medullary and I have been pain free for first time in a very long time!!!!! I make calcium oxalate stones .. my 4.0mm was caught and sent to the lab.
A urinary tract infection would be pretty unusual in an otherwise healthy young male (unless there were stones present) but kidney stones are still a possibility. This should be able to be ruled out fairly simply.
so true in my case I've started getting em since around 23 and now 32 I get 3-4 a year and luckily {I guess never had to have surgery cause they are so small }the urologist says the only thing she can think of is that dehydration causes mine even though I drink a lot of water I cut down calcium no longer drink sodas or liquor{in years} I've done everything and still get them! ON BOTH SIDES!!!!
Hi, Causes other than a UTI than can cause blood in urine include, kidney stones, underlying kidney disease, STDs that are not detected on routine urinalysis (chlamydia and mycoplasma infections), increased blood pressure, exercise-induced bleeding, general bleeding disorders, etc. Kidney stones up to 5 mm in size can pass through the urinary tract, though with significant discomfort.
I just had my sister read my pelvic ultrasound results to me again, it said there were numerous follicles on both sides (along w/the small cysts, one on each ovary) and uterine lining is mildy thick, but looks normal...could that tell me anything??

I don't know for sure if it sounds like kidney stones or not. But, if it has gone on a long time and not getting any better, might be best to go to hospital or for sure at least call your doctor and get their advice.
I was recently within the last month diagnosed with a kidney stone that lead to a UTI. I finished a 7 day treatment of cipro yesterday and the UTI symptons went away, but my both my sides still hurt randomly from time to time. Should I be concerned?
I was diagonised in the ER on Dec 29th with stones on both my right and left kidneys. The right ones are all under 3mm and im told will pass on there own, THe left ones range from 4mm-9mm and the largest was at the top of near my kidney comming down. THey tried to remove it and were unable to so they placed a stent in on dec 30th. I had lithro done on jan 12, with no bleeding and small amount of pain afterwards.
However I also had a stronger pain in my right lower abdomen, groin area and both sides of my lower back. They gave my anti-inflammatory and antibiotics but testing can negative for bacterial stuff. The pain did not go away, it fluctuates a lot and the lower back pain is the strongest with my right flank and groin line. Sometimes my urine stinks.... i don’t know if my drugs were doing that or not.
I didn't have any pain anywhere for a while, then about 8 months or so ago I have been having pain in my pelvis area. It's basically on both sides of the pelvis, below my waistline (to the right and left of my privates)...the pain is OFF and ON and doesn't hurt too bad when it comes. Doesn't hurt to push on it. It might not be there for a week, then the pain might come for about 10 seconds then go away.
My uretors on every CT are very inflammed, which led Dr to do laproscopc exploration, he chose not continue procedure and get the stones out (my stones ae 4mmm, 8mm, and many smaler stones on both sides) much to my dismay. I get pain on both sides that is often worse in the morning, Pain lasts from hours to numerous days. Yet never a pain that feels like trying to go through uretors. Front doesnt hurt. Bladder doesnt hurt. (unless infected).
after few days problem again starts. kidney portion remined swelled on both sides of back. no use no surgeon doing surgeries to get relief (open/laproscopic/laser rays) s these r 3-5mm stones.
and pain in my right shoulder sometimes radiating to the left shoulder, new symptom, muscle twitches on both sides lower stomach. Went thru a spell where I was having yellow stool and yellow diarrhea. Everything I have read about gallstones, says you should have pain in your upper right stomach near ribs, if you have gallstones. recently had check for hiv, hep b/c, liver function, stomach palpatation. Now I have to wait 5 weeks before seeing a gastro dr. Does anyone have any ideas.

I I had your same pains- on both sides of my lower back and my lower left abdomen- my groin and testacles. Sometimes a little too uncomfortable. Lasted for a month on and off. I felt almost instantly better because I drank this water for about 3 days straight. Drinking regular mineral water did not help. Ask for it at an Italian grocery importer or Italian supermarket. Good luck.
0mm stone mid-ureter. I guess size plays a large part but there are always those on both sides of the coin who make up the odds for and against. Sounds like you have a great team of doctors looking out for you and your baby! How are you and your baby doing now? It's been awhile since you posted.
if it's not kidney stones, could it be digestive pain? and if it is kidney stones/kidney is it possible to not have stones? or maybe I just have such tiny stones, I don't even realize it? cause it's not like I ever see any. Are they still in me then? It's weird. When I went to the ER last march, I had been in pain since midnight. I went to the ER around 9 am. And then around noon, the pain went away. Once the pain was gone was when they took an x ray/cat scan.
So I'd rather be scoped and end up with stents on both sides -- but that's just me. Will let you guys know later what we end up doing and how it goes. Keep all of us suffering in your prayers.

Its a sharp, stabbing pain on both sides of my middle back. It doesn't feel better when massaged. I know it isn't a muscle or ligament. I also have pain in my belly on my right side. You guys think its just normal pregnant pain? Should I wait for my OB to get in on Wednesday? I'm still feeling little one move like normal, its just me that is in pain.
ive been having bad back pain on both sides where my kidneys are located. i know its not a stone i have them all the time so i can tell the difference. so i started thinking that i keep getting infections. my first urine test showed an infection but not the second one. ive had two anitboitcs with no relief. so my pcp sent me to my urologist.
However, this spasming pain I have been having has been going on consistently for almost two years now. Every doctor I see wants to pass it off on kidney stones, yet they cannot see any obstructions on the IVPs, CT Scans, etc. Also I haven't passed a stone since I was about 15! I have a hard time believeing it is a stone, due to the fact that these spasms have been going on for so long. I had not yet heard of these disorders you guys suggested. I will definately check into them.
However, I still have this dull pain that comes and goes that is in my kidney area on both sides. It's not excrutiating pain, but I do sometimes take a motrin for it. I'm so confused about what it wrong with me. According to the dr., the stones in my stones are not in the position to be causing any pain, but I can't deny the fact that I have this pain that comes and goes.
