1683521_tn?1305187497 I have constant pain on the right side which never goes away, it can change depending on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e</span>s size. The pain on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> only happens when i have a definite stone, at the moment there are 2 on the left and 4 on the right, when i take a deep breath i get a sharp pain on the left and it lasts for about 10 mins, the biggest stone is on the left. For the last year i have started having kidney infections whereas before they were only water infections.
Avatar_n_tn Since having kidney stones currently and knowing what they feel like not being pregnant, I can safely say that I have had stones at least 3 other times between the ages of 17 and 27 (pain at that time was diagnosed as most likely a cyst -- when pain was severe - shortly thereafter went away - they said cyst burst - i am confident that the pain was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e</span>s). With that being said, I'm tired of getting the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e</span>s (as well as the tiredness, soreness and moodiness).
Avatar_f_tn pain in the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span></span> of my back at my waist line. Pain in my bladder, and pain going down the front of my left thigh. How long should this pain last? It has already been over 1 week.
Avatar_f_tn Today, I had more most severe <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span></span> pain that brought me to my knees and made me sick to my stomach. (no other symptoms) Lasted about 15 min. Now, few hours later I still have slight achiness in that area. I know I have not drank nearly enough water the last few days but had started day off with coffee. Am I dehydrated or could this be kidney stones?
Avatar_f_tn I've had bad re-occuring pains in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span></span>. I had an ultrasound, catscan and x-ray done. Also blood test and urine tests. The doctors say it may be kidney stones that they can't see, or it may be a stone that passed which caused swelling of the kidney and the ureter. Someone told me that the swelling may be caused by "parasites" ... Is this true? Please help.
Avatar_n_tn Has anyone who has suffered from <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e</span>s/<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> infections had any trouble with their periods? I had a long, painful period for three weeks and then the following month my period only lasted for two days but I still had a lot of pain - I was told that I could possibly have kidney stones as I had a urine infection and the pain could be linked to this.
Avatar_f_tn Now I am having some symtpoms that maybe kidney related, it seems everytime i walk or I move about my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span></span>, where my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> is located pinches everytime. It's like I am getting jabbed in that spot, if I sit down the pain subsides, but the minute I get up to do anything it continues. Has anyone who is going to pass a stone had this feeling before? I am also a 30 year old female, I am 5'1 and weigh 126lbs. Thanks!
Avatar_m_tn the doctor said that there is nothing wrong at all and that its not swollen, then i reminded him to look on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span></span> of my urethra and he said there's nothing wrong. now im beginning to think that he missed it since it is only visible when i am erected but i forgot to remind him that since i was in a awkward position. my sore is more like a lump, a fat lip to be more accurate and it is kinda smooshy to touch when i am erected, not visible when im not erect and it doesn't hurt when i touch.
Avatar_n_tn but i sit here , on the toilet typing this , as for the last two days i have had horrific cramps and diahorra (sp) . Its heart warming to know that all my symptoms are of those relating to kidney stones .
Avatar_m_tn I just had a CT scan to check for kidney stones and I was told that I had none visible but that it did show that I had gallstones. All of my symptoms point to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e</span>s, not gallstones. My pain is on the left side and severe nausea that is getting worse even though the pain has lessened in the last 24 hours. My doctor ordered the CT scan since I have a history of kidney stones. can a CT scan miss the stones?
Avatar_n_tn He also has a history of kidney stones, and several were seen in his <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> during a CT scan in December. Could <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e</span>s be at the root of this problem, with the symptoms merely coincidental with the prep and the antibiotics? Or should he try seeing yet another gastroenterologist? His quality of life has been severely impacted by this. Thank you.
Avatar_f_tn I went to a different dr this time and he gave me a urine test and they found the same thing, just a trace of blood, so he didn't want to put me on antibiotics again because he didn't know for sure what was wrong with me so he made me an appointment with a urologist and he also gave me a couple weeks of flomax for my symptoms just in case I had kidney stones.
Avatar_n_tn My 15 year old daughter had a CT scan to check for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e</span>s. The doctor told me the results showed stones in both kidneys...more in the right than in the left. Also showed a 4cm by 4cm cyst on the right ovary. She put her on birth control pills for a couple of cycles to see if the cyst goes away. So we are starting month 1 with the birth control pills, and waiting for an ultrasound in a month or two. As for the kidney stones...
Avatar_f_tn THE PAIN IS LOCATED on MY <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span></span> UPPER BACK JUST ABOVE MY <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> HIP WHERE MY <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> IS, I have REALLY SHARP PAINS, HOT, AND SOMETIMES A TINGLEING PAIN, AND WHEN I TURN TO LAY on MY right side, MY left kidney hurtS WORSE SO IVE GOT TO LAY on MY left side TO GET THE PAIN TO SLOW DOWN, ITS BEEN DOING THIS FOR ABOUT A YEAR NOW, BUT ITS GOTTEN SO WORSE SO I MADE AN APPOINTMENT, THEIR IS NO PAIN WITH URINATIon, AND on MY left side, IT FEELS REALLY HOT WHEN THEIRS PAIN!
Avatar_f_tn What causes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> fullness with no sign of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e</span>s but on and off pain on the flank <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> sode andomin below ribcage and inbetween ahoulder blades pain oh and sometimes when i urinate i feel like im not uet finish bit nothing comes out
Avatar_n_tn Does anyone have any experience with a virus that seems to effect the colon with symptoms that would suggest <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e</span>s? Symptoms include lower <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> back pain also noted in the front <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> lower abdomen. Diarreha noted at onset but no fever or vomiting. Pain reoccurs for minutes to hours but is not debilitating. My family dr. suggested a type of dysentary that manifests itself in the colon trough. I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience with this type of ailment.
Avatar_n_tn The bladder fullness is also getting better however I still have some burning pain in my urethra ( ussually a half hour after I void), pain in my groin and pain in my back it is all on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span></span>. An utra sound found nothing unusual. The urologist thinks it is either kidney stones or the residual effects of a bad infection. He would like me to get a CT. I am concerned as I have had 3 CT scans after a PE in both lungs 2 years ago after delivery. What are your thoughts?
974371_tn?1424656729 on one occasion, I had some slight pain in my left flank area but have had no other obvious <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> symptoms on that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span></span>. Now, I am worried as I don't understand these findings.
Avatar_f_tn Drink lots of warm water, and do kapalbhati pranayam for more than 20 minutes, twice a day. In a few weeks, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e</span>s will be flushed out. After the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>st<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span>e</span>s are out, let me know what other benefits you noticed, and I will suggest some techniques to stimulate the thyroid and parathyroid. Kapalbhati pranayam -(Do it before eating) Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute. Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second.
Avatar_m_tn Also our health pages have lot of info: Please keep in touch . .I had a terrible episode this spring .. I can feel your pain.
Avatar_m_tn Hi, How are you? Aside from the pain, what other symptoms are present? Do you have history of lifting heavy objects or irregular bowel movement? This could be due to muscle spasm or gastrointestinal issues such as constipation or kidney or gall stones. If it persists, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
