Avatar f tn ve always been perfectly healthy but ended up with one in each pregnancy. UTIs are very common in pregnancy and cause kidney infections when left untreated. With my first it came on so fast I thought I was having premature labor.

Avatar f tn Even if you think you have a urinary tract infection or kidney infection the best thing to do is call your doctor all they need is a urine sample when tou get there
Avatar f tn I had a kidney infection 2 weeks ago, i thought it was contractions cause i was 38 weeks i had lower back pain.
489000 tn?1364302227 I thought for sure I had another kidney stone but they finally dx me with a kidney infection that had spread from my bladder. And to top things off, it took the nurses 7 tries to get an IV in me at 5am! I had had really bad chills and had vomited, so I was dehydrated plus I have poor venous access, so it was a tough time getting an IV in me. I don't recall any indications that I had a bladder infection until Tuesday and I went to the doctor's on Wednesday morning.
Avatar f tn It is a kidney infection. I've been given antibiotics and sent hone.
Avatar f tn My urine is dark at times and clear at other times. Recently I started having trouble breathing and chest pains. I was tested for bacteria in my urine and it was negative. Im a 23 year old female with no major health issues besides high blood pressure.
Avatar f tn Its not that dangerous unless you leave it untreated. I had kidney infection and i was in a hospital for a week.
Avatar f tn Im almost 32 weeks pregnant and was hospitalized with a kidney and bladder infection. Before i left they tried to prescribe me cephlexalin but i'm allergic so they gave me the nitrofur-macr. Is it safe? I had read somewhere that it can cause a blood disorder in the baby if used towards the end of your pregnancy .
Avatar f tn A kidney infection is just the result of an untreated bladder infection. I had a kidney infection two years ago and it was awful. The medication you get should knock it out if it is an infection, or stronger ones if it doesn't work.
Avatar f tn @ Brooke no i dont really get cramp or anything but I've been having back pains and stomach pains for past two days but I think it's kidney infection because I've had kidney infection once before and the symptoms are the same. and thank you honey I will be going doc's to talk to them about the periods...
Avatar f tn I had them through my whole pregnancy last time.
Avatar n tn Could be a kidney stone as well. Tell her to go to a doc.
Avatar n tn Hi, Are there other symptoms present? A kidney stone is a solid mass made up of tiny crystals which may present as abdominal pain, blood in the urine, chills, excess urination at night, fever, flank pain or back pain, painful urination or urinary frequency/urgency. Abdominal CT scan, xrays or ultrasound of the kidneys will confirm the diagnosis of kidney stones. Menstruation problems are hormone and stress related.
Avatar f tn I was checked into the hospital for a kidney infection and that was when I found out I was even pregnant in the first place! Weird thing is , it all starts with a urinary tract infection. I didn't even know that you could have one of those without feeling the burning sensation when you pee, because I definitely did not feel it. But if you're peeing constantly and barely anything is coming out then I would seriouly suggest seeing your doctor. I'm lucky I went in when I did.
Avatar f tn Specialist told me I have a non functioning kidney because i have pain on my left side every month and for years it's ether i remove it or risk getting infection or other medical complications.
Avatar f tn Hi there, I would press your urologist or find a new one. Doctors have a tendency to shove pregnant women off on OBs just because they're pregnant. I don't think an OB would have as much knowledge about MSK as a urologist or a nephrologist. Try to relax as much as you can and tell your OB and urologist that you are in pain and need help as well as that you're stressed and it's affecting your pregnancy. That might make them jump and do something.
Avatar f tn Has anyone got a urinary tract infection during pregnancy? Was it uncomfortable and a little painful at times? once treated did the uncomfortablness go away? I think I have one I have a drs appt in 4 days is it safe to wait until then?
2131661 tn?1340229152 definitely go get checked out, like other girls said it could be a UTI, Kidney infection.... I was peeing blood a couple weeks ago and they think I may have passed a kidney stone...
Avatar f tn ve been put on it twice this pregnancy, once for a uti and more recently for a kidney infection and 3 times my first pregnancy for uti's. I've never had any problems with it. All of my docs (and ive had quite a few because i moved during pregnancies and had to switch) have said its safe. They told me the benefits outnumber the risks.
192055 tn?1263555537 So, I may have not been diagnosed with MSK but I have 100% of the symptoms and doctors that won't take their time to help me out!!! I am not giving up on this!! Anyway.... I just found out a few days ago that I am pregnant with number 1 !!! Can anyone offer any advice with MSK and pregnancy? I can't make it through the mall or make it through grocery shopping without my kidney hurting... and it is sooo frustrating that I can't take any medicine for it!
