Chest pain kidney stones

Common Questions and Answers about Chest pain kidney stones


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 n tn Hi, Kidney stones form when the components of urine are out of balance. When this happens, the urine contains more crystal-forming substances, such as calcium and uric acid. Kidney stones are also prone to develop in highly acidic or highly alkaline urine. Sometimes, the underlying cause is an inherited metabolic disorder or kidney disease. Gout, inflammatory bowel disease and some medications promote specific types of kidney stones.
Avatar m tn turned out to be pre-cordial catch syndrome from my back being out of place...yes a messed up back can cause chest pain,quite severe chest pain is the pain in your abdomen down towards the crease on your pelvis or up a little higher...dont think its appendicitis though or kidney stones... and if your eating healthy and you feel physically fit then your not sick, its probably just a muscle problem of some sort...
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 f tn I passed multiple kidney stones from both kidneys over a 3 month period,, i have had kidney stones for almost 20 years, i am 39.
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 m tn 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 subside, it seems to have gone again for now, I was just wondering if I'm supposed to avoid eating foods rich in calcium, I'm also lactose intolerant and with all this I'm starting to wonder if I'm going to en up deficient in calcium, thanks for any advice
1449510 tn?1407160429 could be kidney stones,i had gallstones and had backpain but my pain was also in my chest and stomach area,get a second opinion i went to 3 doctors over 5 years before they figured out i had gallstones and had to have emergency surgery
Avatar m tn i recently took a cat scan due to back pain that i've been experience for the past six months, i took it to my doctor across the street and for some strange reason i don't believe that he knows what he's talking about, he interpreted my results as the following, you have two kidney stones which aren't causing any of your pain and what's wrong with you we probably can't fix. here's the actual results.
Avatar f tn My PCP stated that the tracer did not fully leave my kidney. I have a history of kidney stones and my left ureter has scar tissue due to surgery so I am concerned about that. My PCP is going to refer me to a rheumatologist. I'm using pain killers to deal with the pain on daily basis. Do you have any suggestions as to what I can do? Thank you so much!
423714 tn?1214436023 If it is in your back, you could also have a kidney stone. I have had kidney stones, my gall bladder out, and cysts on my ovaries. The pains are similar, but very different. Your gall pains hurt in the middle of your chest, towards the right side, (and yes your gall bladder is on your right side, I have scars to prove this!) Kidney stones and cyst pains are similar, but stones are much more painful. Anyways, I hope this answers your questions, but really, go and see your Dr.
Avatar m tn You were right in suspecting appendicitis and kidney stones. Kidney stones can persist for years and cause symptoms only when they start moving. They can move, cause pain and again remain in a position for long periods of time. Similarly chronic appendicitis too can behave this way with bouts of pain, localization of infection and inflammation and a symptom free period.
Avatar m tn So according to test results, I have no kidney infection and no kidney stones because according to my doctor, kidney stones 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.
Avatar f tn diagnosis final diagnosis=acute pyelonephritis additional diagnosis=renal colic = pain that comes in waves thrombocytopenia-unspecified I don't know your health history nor am I a doctor but from what you have written it sounds like you had a kidney stone and that caused an infection when the stone was trying to pass. This is a rather common occurrence with kidney stones and has nothing to due with any other health conditions you may have.
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 I did end up in the ER once for the pain, and they did an MRI which came back fine. Kidney stones - interesting idea. Never thought of it. Thanks, really appreciate your thoughts. Looks like I have some more medical investigating to do.

Avatar n tn I have had half a dozen kidney stones in the last year or so. This definitely sounds like it could be a stone. The pain generally happens as the stone goes into the ureter and travels to the bladder. Once in the bladder, it doesn't usually hurt too much but may cause frequent urination, etc. If you don't have anymore pain, i would just strain your urine for awhile and wait to pass the stone. If you have more pain, you can go to the ER and have a scan done.
Avatar f tn I have had 8 episodes with a great deal of pain. The last 2 stones passed quickly and had much less pain vs. the previous ones due, at least in part, to the use of flomax at the onset of the pain. Good luck. Passing stones is no fun!
Avatar n tn I'm a nineteen year old girl. A few days ago, I started experiencing over-all mild, lower back pain. I have back problems, so I just got out the heating pad and didn't pay much attention. But the pain didn't go away and it's been getting worse. It had become concentrated in my lower back to the right side of my spinal cord, right over my hip. Sometimes it does hurt in the right side of my abdomen and in the middle of my back, too. I'm 99% sure it's my kidney.
997798 tn?1250089433 Hi. I have had stones for over 30 years and only over the past 5 years had the symptoms you describe. Is the stone exiting the right kidney? <<<<"along with the pain I now have on my right side" = FLANK PAIN. Please google it and see if it matches up to the pain on the side. Is this your first stone? You need to do 24 hour urines and have the stone analyized, VERY important. DRINK DRINK DRINK ALL THE WATER YOU POSSIBLY CAN FORCE IT.
Avatar f tn This past friday at 1:20am I was rushed to the ER from sudden back pain that was unbearable I was so scared for my baby.. Came to the conclusion it's kidney stones and I became more terrified because there's not many pain killers they could give me other than tylenol and morphine, so about the last one I asked if it was ok for my baby, first they said not sure!!
696943 tn?1229366600 I've been having kidney pain just about every day for the pat couple of months. I have been to the ER countless times and have had cat scans and xrays that all came out clear. I get UA's done every couple of weeks and sometimes they are clear, others time I will have blood in it and my urine is acidic. The docotrs keep telling me the same thing, that there is nothing wrong with me...but I hurt all the time!!
Avatar f tn Has anyone had kidney stones during your pregnancy and what did the pain feel like. I went to the hospital earlier and was sent home and told I was just experiencing round lig pain but I'm a bit skeptical of that verdict because it lasted for hours and the pain was so intense. I didn't test positive for a uti either but idk what to think. I dont have bloody urine but i swear i peed out something resembling a small pebble earlier too.
Avatar f tn Hi ladies have any of yous experienced the oh-so-lovely pain of kidney stones? Also once it passed how long did kidney pain last? The hospital I attended to didn't help nor my doctor was any help! Thanks!
Avatar m tn About eight months ago I felt a very mild pain in my back, both sides, just a few centimeters behind the last bone of my chest. 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”).
