Chest pain kidney stones

Common Questions and Answers about Chest pain kidney stones


Avatar n tn I would need much more detail to determine the cause of your chest pain. its hard to diagnose chest pain over the internet. I suggest that you start by visiting your doctor.
Avatar f tn I am having a lithroscopy to break up kidney stones a stent may have to be put in place in order that the stones can pass. I have read and heard how uncomfortable this can be and are there other options to having a stent put in place.
Avatar f tn Kidney stone pain is often associated with low back pain and abdominal pain. Kidney stones, especially those in the left kidney, can also cause significant amounts of nausea and even vomiting. As the stone moves further down the ureter toward the bladder, the pain often radiates in the groin and genital areas. In men, the pain may radiate to the scrotum. In women, the pain may radiate to the labia or even the vagina.
Avatar m tn I've searched the internet and found that kidney stones and salt deposits are the same thing. He said the pain in my abdomen was probably due to one of the deposits passing. He said that the pain that I 'think' is in my right kidney is more than likely my back. Can somebody please help me? I've tried so many doctors here, and not a single one of them can give me a straight answer that checks with Western medicine. The joys of living abroad...
Avatar n tn It was when this happened that I began to suspect that maybe it wasn't an infection, but a kidney stone - or recurring kidney stones. When the chronic constipation started a year ago, I also began to have difficulty peeing. I have to strain sometimes to get it to come out. The pee is really clear, like 99% of the time. It has no color. And when I'm done peeing, at the bottom of the toilet there is always what looks like green "dust". It always sinks to the very bottom.
Avatar f tn This may sound weird, but I noticed that when I take Nexium...I don't have kidney stone pain, but when I stop taking it...I have kidney stone pain. Are these symptoms related in some strange and mysterious way? How can I cure my reflux for good without meds? I'm starting nursing school this fall and what to take care of myself!
Avatar m tn I went to sonographer and he told me I have two kidney stones in my kidneys (one 4 mm in each kidney). From that day, despite that the doctor prescribed me some drugs, I did nothing except drinking a huge amount of water (I hope you can imagine what I mean from the word “huge”). Just two days ago, I went to the same doctor to tell me about the (increase in the) size of the stones. Surprisingly, he told me there is nothing in my kidneys and they are clear.
Avatar m tn I am still in a lot of pain but the pain that I am worried about is chest pain. Every time I breath it feels like a knife is in my ribs. I am wondering if this is normal due to the surgery? Can anyone help me please?
1449510 tn?1407164029 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.
Avatar m tn I have never posted before as im usually on another forum but just noticed this one tonight. For the last few months i have suffered serious chest pain. It comes on all of a sudden and i cant even move or hardly breathe. Every time i take a breath its absoloutely agony, so i have to breath very slightly as its so sore. It brings tears to my eyes. I have very serious lung problems and years ago the doctors told me that eventually it would put a strain on my heart.
Avatar n tn So the calcium can not be to blame for your chest pain. A negative stress test in a 21 year old man (especially if you had the pain during the stress test) is a strong indicator that your chest pain can be caused by something else than your heart. Where in the chest does it hurt? Even chest pain during exercise doesn't necessarily have to be cardiac related.
Avatar n tn When I was 7 months pregnant I was rushed to emergency with severe left flank pain. It was determined that I had kidney stones. Approximately 2 years later, it happened again, only on the right side. There was blood in my urine, my white blood cell count was elevated, and severe pain again. An ultrasound found imflamation, thus my doctor determined I had an infection and was prescribed antibiotics. However, I still have mild (throbbing/aching) flank pain on my right side.
Avatar f tn The treatment for kidney stones depends on their size and what they are made of and also if they are causing pain or obstructing the urinary tract. Small stones usually pass through the urinary tract without treatment. It is good advice to stay well hydrated as that should prevent the stones from getting any bigger or new ones from forming. For kidney pain you may take a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug such as ibuprofen or naproxen .
Avatar m tn Hi, My mom is a 66 years old lady - had kidney stones regularly and under medication - even now have some small stones. Now facing problems in urination and have severe pain & irritation while urinating. She has been advised for endoscopy within 2-3 weeks. Is this advisable - since she is also a heart patient - is there risks involved?
Avatar f tn The past 2 years I have been very fatigued and had this intermittent chest pain. The pain in my chest is deep and most times is a dull pain and lasts between an hour. To try and diagnose myself I have tried taking antacids and they did not help. I have also tried homeopathic medication for anxiety and these do not help either. I have woken up with this pain, so I cannot see how it could be anxiety. I also have an enlarged lymph node that has been there for almost 2 years.
Avatar n tn I have the distinct feeling of a burp in my chest but every time i go to burp it is only acidic vomit. I have also devoloped a sharp pain in my kidneys when i laydown at night which makes it imposible to sleep unless i am sitting up. During all of this my stomach is doing that gasy gurgling. I am just wondering what could be dont to stop the kidney pain. This discussion is related to <a href=''>Stomach Gas</a>.
Avatar f tn Scleroderma is another condition that can invade a heart and the lungs. A back massage has been known to reduce that back pain. Kidney stones can cause very awful pain in the high back. Cysts generally do not cause pain if known to be small, say a cyst size 2 MM There are many other abnormal states that can cause pain and resultant palpitations. So as the folks above suggested going to the ER that could be the safest route for you.
Avatar m tn Well after a year and a half, and a few posts on this forum, i still have no closure. Still have left and center chest pain, not upon movement and not upon exertion. The pain is like a quick jab, about a 7 on the scale. Sometimes these jabs come in a series of 4 or five in a row. Lasts less than a minute total. I also get left arm pain, left shoulder pain, and left jaw pain. Sometimes at the same time, sometimes just shoulder and left arm pain but no chest pain.
Avatar m tn Then 1 day i experienced difficulty in breathing, when i walk a lil i pant quickly. i feel pain on the middle part of my back, chest pain and headache and my face and ears turned red and i feel so hot like i have a fever..i asked our our nurse to check my temperature and BP and it's normal..then decided to go to the hospital..first week i went there it was diagnosed as allergic from the food i ate ( squid and salmon) and from the cream am using ( BL cream).. i was in the ER for hours..
Avatar f tn Also, I do not believe I have Kidney stones as the flank pain is the only pain I have. My kingdom for anyone who can figure out what 2 ER's could not.
Avatar f tn I didn't have any problems for awhile, when I was around 15 I occasionally got some pain. I'm 95% sure I get kidney stones and it always seems to be on the right side. Or maybe it's something else with the exact symptoms of stones. I get that kind of pain about once a year. On a daily basis though, I have discomfort now. I just turned 21. It's been gradual and I only started to really think about it recently.
Avatar f tn But i have been given three different anxiety pills and it didnt help either. I also experience back pain but its not as frequent as the chest pressure. Ive been having alot of trouble with gas and some nauseau too. But the worst thing is the chest pressure, it scares me but nothing showed up on my tests?
Avatar f tn My husband is 37 years old, 38 in August. He has chronic chest pain - ribs and sternum. Has had it since June of 2000. Started on the left, now through the whole chest. Hurts to breathe, always in pain, lays down most of the day, very limited activity. On several pain meds and muscle relaxants. Doctors originally said costochondritis but costo goes away and NSAIDS never helped him.
Avatar f tn I have had right rear abdomen pain for 2 years. had ultrasound and xray for poss kidney stones, non found, then mri scan which showed pancreas divisum. a further mri scan with secretin to test for reaction of pancreas, yet consultant tells me all seems to be functioning ok, so is eliminating my pancreas as cause of pain and problems i still have this terrible constant right flank, aching pain, feel run down all the time, sometimes dizzy and unwell.
Avatar m tn They given me painkillers and pain subsided and got the discharge. At home pain started again but this time on right kidney side and I had another visit to hospital. The ultrasound report detected a 3mm stone and I was admitted in hospital. After CT scan, Intravenous pyelogram and X-rays, it was found that a stone was 4.5 mm which stuck in ureter on right side. I was operated by uteroscopy with laser lithotripsy. The doctor had put the stent and discharged me to home with medications.
Avatar n tn Three weeks a go I was diagnosed as having gastritis, yesterday I had a ultra sound scan which seems to have revealed a stone in my left kidney. I have pain in my left hand side in my chest and back as well as my groin and testicle. There is no blood in my urine or stool and my urine runs clear (not golden). I have also had pain around my belly button on all sides (top,bottom,left and right) which was originally why I was diagnosed with gastritis. Are the two linked?
Avatar m tn Hi, a while ago I had kidney stones, I was sent for a scan after, upon returning to my GP for the results of my test, he told me there were calcium deposits in my kidney that could mean I have another on the way, I've been trying to keep well hydrated and doing all I can to prevent a recurrence, because they're damn right evil, I've got away with it for quite a while now, last night I was woke up with the same pain I had when I had kidney stones, I sat on the toilet and waited for the pain so su
Avatar m tn I was seen by a Urologist who concluded that my pain was not kidney-related. I was sent home with a week's worth of Tramadol, antibiotics (no tests ever showed UTI) and anti-sickness tablets.
