Kidney stones symptoms leg pain

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones symptoms leg pain


Hello, Since the kindey stone is 7 mm, so the symptoms seem unrelated to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s. Since you are having pedal or leg edema, hence your cardiac, liver and kidney functions need to be assessed for which I suggest you to consult a physician immediately. Abdominal causes like irritable bowel syndrome can also cause such symptoms. Common symptoms include abdominal cramping or pain, bloating and gassiness, and altered bowel habits(alternate constipation and loose stools).
I'm not a doctor, but do have too much experience with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s. For me, I'd get pings and pangs in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> as well as microhematuria (blood you cannot see by eye) in my urine when I have stones. I've also had the flank pain you describe .. for me it's been in the lower back. I hope with lots of water your stones move out for you uneveventfully. Please keep in touch. From what I've read stones <5.0mm usually move out on their own with a high % of non-complications, etc.
Renal CT scan showed 1 mm stone in right kidney, 2 even smaller <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s in left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span>. Was given hydrocodone for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> and phenagren in case <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> meds cause nausea and told to see a urologist asap. My question is, if the stones are still in my kidneys how can they be causing all the lower abdominal pain and pressure. This pain is worse after I walk much, and when my bladder is getting full before I urinate. Urination does NOT hurt though. I have had no fever at all.
Also noticed a swollen gland in groin that's been there almost 2 months (no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> there). Went to ob/gyn for uti symptoms and gland, no bacteria found, but slight blood in urine. I always feel like I have a uti right before and during my period, and sometimes feel irritated "down there" after I pee--randomly throughout each month. I've also been bloated for about 2 months.
Hi everyone... Okay,so for the 7th time this year I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s again - I am a 20yr old female (and I live a healthy life) ... Doc put a stent in my right ureter cause my kidney is PACKED with stones! I had a UTI but that was treated in hospital when the stent was inserted... I am battling with my period,its like it just ran away or something... Can it just disappear? Like for 2months or longer?
Of course, I see similar symptoms in the postings, but, I'm confused as to what could cause the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>leg</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>....does just being hypothyrloid bring that about...or is it medication. I have heard both, but that seems too vague. Appreciate your help.
Since there are several posts on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s, Id like to share my research results that could possibly afford relief to kidney stone sufferers. I am a recently retired ICU RN and I did not realize until now how important Magnesium is in our lives. Its important to know whats the right kind to take as well. This knowledge could help so many people out there .. if they only knew so I wanted to help spread the word......
After a urine test revealed no UTI, but trace blood, I was sent for CT and my urine and blood sent to lab. The CT revealed no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s. My urine had calcium oxade crystals (sp?) in it and my WBC count was up. The doctor assumed that I had passed a kidney stone and told me to take it easy. I have since returned home, and have not felt any relief. The pain has gotten worse. Now, when I bend down at the waist, cough, or take a wrong step, my legs go numb.
None of them can explain to why I keep getting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s. Some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s have caused major <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> and others have sat in my kidneys for years with no problems.The drs have done every and any test possible from blood work to CT's to MRI's and they still can not figure out why I keep getting the stones. The most recent test they did was a CT w/contrast to see if I had that sponge kidney disease. The test came back inconclusive. I know that the stones are made up of calcuim.
She has no family history of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s other then herself she is around 50-58 in age is very good at holding <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> back but this is one pain she can't ignore. She also has a history of diabetes type 2 after I was born due to bad health care from a HMO.
Hello, These symptoms can be due to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s or infection, some infection of the genitourinary tract or due to inguinal hernia. In cases of hernia, a prominent bulge along with testicular pain is there and in cases of kidney or ureteric stones, pain during micturition may also be there. Lab investigations like complete blood examination, urine examination, ultrasound lower abdomen and sometimes a urethral swab will help in diagnosis. Treatment will be started thereafter.
The pain in the lower back can be due to compression of the nerves or due to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> infections or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span>(nephrolithiasis).I think that getting an ultrasound abdomen or CT abdomen will help in confirming the diagnosis. Are you a diabetic or do you take alcohol?Numbness and tingling are common in alcoholics and metabolic disorders like diabetes, hypothyroidism, and hypoparathyroidismThey can also be due to peripheral vascular disease, vitamin B12 deficiency or malnutrition.
Your situation is kind of confusing, if the pain does originate with your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span>, I think there would be other symptoms besides <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. For example, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> on urination, blood in urine, nausea and vomiting, constant urge to urinate. And supposedly, if it is a kidney problem, the pain will get worse when you gently press on the area of your back where your kidneys are. I don't think kidney pain radiates down into the legs.
Ever since I was 18 I knew I was having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> stone <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. Tons of X-rays done and the drs told me no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s, yet the next day I passed a 6mm stone and have been passing small stones almost every other day. There are weeks that go by where everything feels good but there are also weeks and months where I have sharp pains in my kidney with msk. I thought I was crazy because drs have been telling me that pain is not a symptom of msk.
In the past two years he has been treated for stenosis of the spine, a fractured hip, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s, and a serious bladder infection. His symptoms include lower back and leg pain, occasional blood in the urine, and high blood pressure. His cholesterol and lipids are also extremely high. He is currently taking an inflammatory prescription for the hip pain and a otc for bone replacement. The orthopedic surgeon assured him last week that he would need hip replacement at some time.
After a urine test revealed no UTI, but trace blood, I was sent for CT and my urine and blood sent to lab. The CT revealed no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s. My urine had calcium oxade crystals (sp?) in it and my WBC count was up. The doctor assumed that I had passed a kidney stone and told me to take it easy. I have since returned home, and have not felt any relief. The pain has gotten worse. Now, when I bend down at the waist, cough, or take a wrong step, my legs go numb.
The doc said they were going to further test my samples but that it was looking like a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> infection or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s. Im supposed to hear more info in two days. But i am a little concerned.... ok no im not going to lie im a little scared. Everyone I speak to finds my symptoms odd and the fact that my illness came back is odd too. I just want to know if anyone can relate to me or if anyone has any other ideas of what it might be or any advice, anything! Thanks for reading.
Back pain can also be a symptom of kidney <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s. The other thing is the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>leg</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> (one doctor told me) might be nerve <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. There is pressure on the nerve from the back. I don't know why they are saying it's not. I believe there is something else that can cause leg pain, something with the veins. You can google it. There's a special doctor, either a cardiologist or vascular doctor, I think, for this. I feel for you. I have so many problems and I often feel like I have to be Dr.
I started calendaring his fevers and they now occur every two weeks- like clockwork. His fevers are occassionally accompnaied by <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>leg</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> and stomach <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. During the few days before his fever he is extremely fatigued- tired enough that he falls asleep sitting up. A CBC was done and indicated that he was anemic (his H&H was ~10 and ~30). Two weeks later, his H&H was normal.
As I'm sitting here writing this I keep getting intermittent <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> in my left <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>leg</span> like on the left side of my calf, the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> will come on SUPER intense like the muscle is about to pop out and then last about 5 seconds and go away only to come back within like 5 mins or so. Also when it comes on its like I can feel kinda like a tingling sensation throughout my body and into like the back of my head. Kinda electric like feeling.
I have had all kind of blood work and I get <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s, so I know that it has nothing to do with my kidney's. The itching can be bothersome because I too get the feeling of ants, bugs crawling all over. My mom has rls and she says that what I describe is what she gets. I have a appointment next week with my doctor I am going to mention it to him. These sensations are worse at night, and i do get it a little during the day. From what I have read it is common.
In such case, the infections can never be fully treated unless the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s are removed or passed. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s could also cause symptoms of back and flank pain. The combination of the pain, abdominal symptoms, dehydration, side effects from the medications, and the toll that the infection takes on the system could lead to generalized feeling of weakness and lack of wellbeing. Regardless, you must be followed up closely by a urologist as you are. I hope all goes well.
It all started with abdomen pain, lower back, and going down the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>leg</span>. Doctors didn't know what was wrong with me. I also had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s in the middle of all of this. I ended up in the emergency numerous times. The abdomen pain is what sent me to the hospital. That pain was worse than labor (knowing how that feels after having 2 children). My OBGYN thought maybe it was from the oblation that I had 4 years ago.
I was nervous because my father has a history of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s, I'm 24, and I'm on a medication (Topomax) that makes me likely to get them. However I did not have any blood in my urine, my back was not tender to touch, there was no pain urinating, and the pain was not getting any worse. The day after the pain started, it began spreading into my buttox and down my whole right leg. I was walking through the grocery store and there were times it felt like I had to drag my leg.
So according to test results, I have no kidney infection and no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s because according to my doctor, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s will show some trace of blood in my detailed urine exam. Also note that during the episode of my back/kidney ache, my chest pain was very little to almost gone. Although they came back a little bit but not to the point that i would go crazy.
i am experiencing right flank pain that radiates to my lower back down the buttocks to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>leg</span>. i also have pelvic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span>. i get somewhat <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pain</span> on left side but very dull and highly un-noticed. the dr ruled out kidney stones /appendacitis. i also have blue veins and poor circulation on my legs. i have no fever and am not pregnant. i also get headaches spine and upper back pain. not sure whats going on mYBE I NEED a chiropractor not sure what this is.
The nurse told me that I should within the next three hours be at someone's hospital emergency room because it sounded like, based on her putting the symptoms in a computer that I may have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidney</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>stone</span>s. Well ladies, I must tell you, there is nothing about my kidneys that is giving me a problem! I have NO kidney pain whatsoever! This morning I called my primary care physician and will see her at noon.
