Bloating kidney area

Common Questions and Answers about Bloating kidney area


Avatar n tn 3 weeks ago the day after I started my period I began bloating. Within 2 days I had gained 10 lbs. and went from wearing a size 3 to not even being able to get a size 12 on. I have been to my gyn. He did a pelvic ultra sound. Which showed my uterus was inlarged, but sayed this wouldn't cause this much bloating. He sent me to a internist. Who tested my colon and did blood work, she said that was all fine. She sent me to a gastr. Dr. He sent me to get a gall bladder ultra sound.
Avatar f tn Pretty much straight after my colonoscopy I started to experience pain and bloating in my stomach and kidney area. I thought this was just the after affect of the operation and it would settle down after a few days. Well it's been over 4 months now and I'm in so much discomfort. I have gone back for CT Scans and X Ray's and everything looks normal apparently. Now my doctor is telling me I have IBS which is ******** if it's true as I've never had an internal issues like this in my life.
Avatar f tn Since January, I have had major inflammation and pain in my lower intestine and I have lost about 10 lbs, which is frustrating because I am skinny already. It hurts my abdominal area when I lift my 2 year old son. At my doctor's office a tiny amount of blood was detected in my urine but my white blood count was normal. I took Cipro but pain still remains.
Avatar m tn I Started off with allot of bloating and lots of discomfort / pressure in the middle to upper abdomen. I also was having pain around both sides of my kidney area and went around to my lower and mid back. I have had all this disomfort going on for about 3 months now. I am a big guy and i am 43 years of age. I am on lots of medication. Quinaprill, lipitor,medformin, klonopin, prozac, singluair, albuterol inhaler, prilosec.
Avatar f tn For the past 4 months I have experienced discomfort and bloating/swelling on my right side at the hip-bone area around to my front right side. Bloating usually starts mid-afternoon and is more obvious in the evening. Excessive bloating is gone upon awaking, but still swelling on right side that I notice. Mentioned discomfort to my primary 2 months ago, and he said all my blood work and urinalysis that had been run 4 weeks earlier were normal.
Avatar f tn Then he called is collegue and ask for a CT-SCAN.AND IT DID NOT SHOW ANYTHING JUST 1 KIDNEY STONE ON MY LEFT KIDNEY .But with all the antibiotic I empty my bowel's,after 1 week.That's where the emergency DR. told me to start eating pasta and bread.jello,popsicles,broth.
149081 tn?1242401432 I became constipated again last week ( this seems to worsen the closer to my monthly visits). On saturday I took something to help. well it helped over nite but I still feel the bloating and pressure. I could pass for being AT LEAST 6 mths prego now! So frsutrating because I had a tiny tummy before surgery!
Avatar n tn in the last year i have burning, pain in the right side under ribs through to the back area and in the kidney area. but now for my question i am a 57 yr old woman and i look like i am 9 months pregant. i have been told by doctor that i might need to be tapped for fluid. could this be because of my liver? all of my blood work is good. i don't have a gallbladder. i am 6ft tall and i weight 228lbs and at this time last year my weight was 167lbs, could this extra 61 lbs be fluid?
Avatar n tn I also have major bloating.The bloating is mainly in my stomach but it can also go in my face, back arms etc... I also have dizziness.I have seen every doctor and so far they can't figure it out. I exercise regularily and have a great diet. The weird thing that most doctors saw but didn't go into detail was by looking at x-ray's and ultrasound they all said that I have alot of stool in my colon. What would be the reason for that and could that be part of my problem?
Avatar n tn I did not. However my constipation, gas and bloating continues in spite that I am taking Ex Lax, and Metalusil. I have severy pain in my stomach and beg pressure. I look preganat. The doctor did not seem to concerned and told me to take Milk of Magnesia, which I did with no results. Any suggestiosn?
Avatar m tn For the past year and a half I have been experiencing swollen legs and stomach bloating. The leg swelling primarily affects my calves, and somewhat my thighs, but it doesn't extend to my ankles or feet. It is non-pitting and gets worse as the day goes on. I usually wake up with my calves back to normal size, but they progressively swell throughout the day, with them at their worst at night. I also have stomach and digestive issues, and bloating has been another constant symptom.
Avatar f tn All tests came back negative thankfully. Now, my lower back is aching around the kidney area. I had a urine test done and it came back normal. Have any of you taken clindamyacin? I read some of the side effects and they match my symptoms. Any thoughts? Always looking for some good info from the experts here.
Avatar n tn - Heavy bloating (bloating seems to be relieved by passing gas either by belching or farting) - Some tenderness all over the gut area especially on the left side where the stomach sits - Feeling that some fluid (liquid or gas, probably gas) moves around (gurgling noises) - Some actual distention of the belly (I am not sure about that but it sure feels that way, maybe some fluid retention ?) These symptoms usually start after I eat and last up to 5-6 hours.
Avatar f tn My abdominal area goes from almost flat to 6 months pregnant looking in a matter of minutes. It use to only happen once and a while with no known cause or effect. Now it has become more regular and more painful. I can wake up with my belly looking pregnant or I can go to bed with it like that and wake up with it normal. This occurs no matter what I eat, how much or little I eat, or if the food is spicy.
Avatar n tn I don't know if this is colitis, and I have several symptoms that seem to occur together, but it makes no sense to me (as far as what it could mean). I have this bloating going on, way high up right underneath my chest. I also have a stabbing pain that comes with it, in my lower right abdomen, right around where I think my appendix are. I have ruled out appendicitis, because it comes & goes and has been goin on for about a month.
Avatar f tn along with this I have pain right side upper back painful it hurts to breath.....sit.......
967168 tn?1477588089 In March 2004, I woke up one night with excruciating pains in my left flank area as well as frequent urination – 40-60 times daily 8-10 times nightly; extreme fatigue “flu – like feeling”; shortness of breath; chest pain; palpitations, abdominal discomfort/pain; nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation intermittently; numbness on feet; abdominal pain/bloating along with muscle pain & tenderness.
Avatar n tn I have the same abdominal pain, pressure and bloating. No back pain. The CT scan showed a 4 mm stone in my left kidney. I had blood in my urine one day, a fever one day. Now urine is normal. Can a stone cause this pain, pressure and bloating to go on for weeks? It has been 12 days and shows no signs of letting up.
Avatar f tn I have had pain for 4 weeks now. Originally diagnosed as kidney stones. I was put on antibiotics for a week on day 4 and booked in for an ultra sound. I was also given diclofenac to help with the pain. Avo upper data later the pain did not get better. I went back to the doctors and they weren't sure it was a kidney stone. Occasionally pain worsened on some days. Was prescribed codeine for when I needed it. I continued having pain and was signed off work. I only had fever on day 2.
Avatar m tn Then it extends down to lower abdomen and groin area. I have had one ultrasound, confirmed a kidney stone. Then I had a CT scan which confirmed a few kidney stones. I felt alot better. Stomach problems went away. Fast foreward a couple weeks later and I am in alot of pain again. Horrible bloating, Nausea, Horrible stomach and back pains. I went to the ER on Friday, Doc gave me a CT scan, blood work, urine sample. Everything came back good, no blood in urine, no infection present.
Avatar n tn In 2005, I was diagnosed with Medullary Sponge Kidney (both of them) after two separate episodes of gross Haematuria. About a year later I began experiencing headaches, fluid retention in my ankles, feeling very tired, not being able to remember things, constipation/diarrhea and a lot of abdominal pain that usually results in extreme bloating in my stomach. My stomach can bloat so much I look like I'm in early stages of pregnancy. When my PC doctor presses on my belly it's extremely painful.
Avatar n tn hydronephrosis - caused by a stone, uretopelvic junction obstruction, or floating kidney (UPJ - where the kidney and ureter meet) I'm assuming this is the renal pelvis that is dilated. Other test for kidney funtion: diuretic renal gram (stress test for the kideny) retrograde pyelogram (shows explicit detail of the urter and kideny, but doesn't stress the kidney or ureter out to show how it performs under normal everyday living.) drink lots of water.
Avatar m tn While i may have bloating, tummy pains and rumbling of gas moving in my intestines etc, i have also been diagnosed with high protein in the urine, doctors say is caused by damage to the kidney, letting more albumin out than usual. They attribute this damage to the high blood pressure i am suffering. My question is: could the increased gas pressure from aerophagia enter the kidney and cause this physical internal damage, and/or augment the increased BP.
Avatar f tn that goes along with a winter cold. At one point I had blood in my urine but only once and my kidney area sometimes hurt. I did notice I was retaining water a lot, especially around the stomach area, to the point where drinking was physically paining my stomach by stretching it so much. I'm not usually big on eating but lately I've been eating less, but even just water causes me to swell up. Will be going to the doc soon but I'm wondering what it could be? It hurts heaps.
Avatar n tn The weird thing is, I didn't really start having much pain in the kidney area until a few days ago, and this has been going on for several months now. My GI doctor put me on Bentyl and it has seemed to help a bit until I had another episode this morning. I took the Bentyl for the first time during an episode and I was feeling somewhat better after about three hours but I don't know if that had anything to do with it.
Avatar n tn Hi, I've never been on this site before, but boy just reading other people's experiences helps, thanks! I'm going in tomorrow to see my Dr. because I have unexplained "bloating" in my upper abdomen, esp. after eating a tiny meal. Also, I have some lower ab. pain and back pain that come and go. I also have the symptoms of a urinary tract infection, i.e. feeling the urge to go without really needing to, a "cramping" sensation in my bladder area, which comes and goes also.
Avatar n tn 3 weeks ago I started having problems with bloating and a feeling of fullness in my stomach below the belly button. Thought it might be constipation, my lower back started hurting but every time I would have a bowel movement the back pain would go away. Then a week ago the back pain wasn't being relieved by the bowel movement nor was the bloating or full feeling. I went to the chiropractor and he has helped with most of the back pain but I still feel like my stomach is full.
