Avatar n tn Have an Abscess on Kidney caused by a stone that needs to be drained due to puss. Showed up on a MRI.
Avatar n tn There are several things that could be going on. Probably #1 is a kidney stone. It could get caught somewhere in route or be stuck in a tender spot in the kidney.
Avatar m tn Its a Some form of the Andromeda Strain? lol! But no. Seriously. Whatever this thing is - kidney stone looking little rocks are growing in my mouth! I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP!! I have been pulling & grinding these things out of my mouth of all places for months now.
Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? Aside from a kidney stone, flank pain may also be due to other kidney problems such as kidney infection or abscess; spinal arthritis, disk disease or even muscle spasm. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. For muscle spasm, rest, physical therapy, and exercise may provide relief. However, if it is an infection, antibiotic management may be indicated. If it persists, have this evaluated further for proper management.
Avatar n tn Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, inflammatory bowel disease, infection in kidney, kidney stones, constipation, ovary involvement in women (cysts, hemorrhage, tumor, torsion—torsion is a medical emergency and a long standing pain is not due to this), ectopic pregnancy in women, mesentry (a thin tissue that carries the blood, nerves and lymphatics for the intestine) involvement low blood supply, enlarged lymphnodes, and an abscess in rectus abdominis muscle or psoas muscle (these two are unlikely
Avatar n tn First of all, your problem does not sound like a kidney stone. Kidney stones may cause pain and discomfort in the abdomen (stomach) and flank (sides of the lower back) when the stone is passing from the kidney to the bladder. After the stone leaves the bladder, significant discomfort can be experienced in the urethra (the tube that passes through the penis out of the body).
Avatar f tn It think it is past my usual time for ovulation. I have had a kidney stone before. About 16 years ago I had a kidney infection. I am a 42 year-old female. I am drinking plenty of water and not having any problems urinating. I am currently out of the country and do not have a family doctor. Thank you for your help!
Avatar n tn pyelonephritis, kidney stone or kidney abscess; spinal arthritis; disk disease and even muscle spasm. What tests were done? I would recommend that you drink plenty of fluids and have a regular follow-up with your doctor. Take care and keep us posted.

Avatar m tn Pain and discomfort on the lower left side of abdomen just below and to the left of navel can be due to several causes such as Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, infection in kidney, kidney stones, adhesions, polycystic ovary in females, IBS, constipation, and an abscess in rectus abdominis muscle or psoas muscle. Since you do not have a lump or a tender hot spot, in all probability it is not a muscle.
Avatar m tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! If abdominal causes like stone in the kidney, kidney infection, abscess in psoas muscle, adrenal gland tumor etc have been ruled out, then a MRI of the lumbo-sacral spine should be done to see if there is a pinched nerve. Persisting pain can also be due to herpes zoster which can appear without a rash too. Hence discuss these possibilities with your doctor. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn Pain and discomfort on the lower left side of abdomen just below and to the left of navel can be due to several causes such as Crohn’s disease, colitis, diverticulitis, infection in kidney, kidney stones, adhesions, polycystic ovary in females, IBS, constipation, and an abscess in rectus abdominis muscle or psoas muscle.

Avatar f tn Pain and discomfort on the lower left side of abdomen can be due to several causes such as Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, infection in kidney, kidney stones, adhesions (if you had previous abdominal surgery, IBS, constipation, and an abscess in rectus abdominis muscle or psoas muscle. Since you do not have a lump or a tender hot spot, in all probability it is not a muscle. It could also be a periumbilical hernia that has got trapped resulting in small bowel obstruction or mesenteric ischemia.
Avatar m tn Since you have white and red blood cells in urine, cystitis, kidney or urine infection and stone in the urinary system should be ruled out first. A CT scan of lower abdomen and pelvis should be done. Hope this helps. Do let me know if there is any thing else and keep me posted. Take care!

Avatar m tn Since it's been a couple of weeks and most of the pain has passed, it's likely not a UTI or a kidney stone. It's just the coincidence that makes me worry. It is below where my waistline is so it's more than likely just a pimple or ingrown hair. I've uploaded two pictures that help but don't really show the fact that it's bulging outwards or it's colorization (red to black in the middle). http://i43.tinypic.com/oiahhw.jpg http://i40.tinypic.com/ampqo5.jpg Any ideas?

923105 tn?1341831249 So after a major course of antibiotics and several scans later, my Urologist warned me that this could turn into Sepsis - and he wanted to admit me immediately (as the abscess is the size of a plum in my Kidney) - I said that I needed to see my own DR first, and what my own DR did was to double the amount of antibiotics that I am on.
Avatar n tn I was having pn in my back kidney area. I went to the ER b/cz it was severe and moved in about an hour to the ant portion of my hip and then about an hour later moved to my left test. The pn was the worst I have ever felt. The ER doc diagnosed me with epidimys and sent me home with sulfa med. The doc called a few days later and I was still in pain, she suggested that I see my regular dr that day. I went in and he did a phys exam that I could not tolerate and nearly passed out.
Avatar n tn ANA+,(all other lupus panel negative) joint pain, mouth ulcers, blood in urine off and on(1mm kidney stone) All other blood work normal. Was on steroids and Asacol last summer for 5 months...weaned off Current CT scan: Mildly prominent fluid filled small bowel loops with no evidence of obstruction. Suggestion of mild wall thickening involving the terminal ileum. Focal area of mild wall thickening involving a small bowel loop in the left lower quadrant. No significant inflammatory changes.
Avatar m tn I have some old Vicodin I had previously form Kidney stone attacks and that is all that can give me some minor relief. I cannot even think of what brought it on. I have soaked in the bathtub today at least 3 times with epsom salt, tried witch hazel.. Nothing seems to alleviate this pain. I don't know if it is a fissure or a Hemorrhoid or what the difference is between the two for that matter.. All I know is I need some support and ideas, that would be fantastic! I need pain relief..
Avatar m tn However flank pain can be caused from kidney stones, kidney infections, a kidney abscess or disease, arthritis of the spine, disc problems and as said earlier, muscle spasms. There are also other causes of flank pain...often other conditions can produce referred pain to the flank. Meaning the pain is actually being produced in one location but felt in another. I would return to your PCP and investigate possible kidney issues....
