Avatar m tn A few days prior, a large kidney stone had obstructed her kidney, which led to a kidney infection that got into her bloodstream. We called an ambulance because she was having terrible symtoms, such as chills, a fever reaching close to 105, throwing up/nausea, weakness, etc. Her blood pressure dropped really low as well and her kidneys were failing. She had two types of bacteria in her system and was placed on antibiotics.
Avatar n tn A friend told me this could be a kidney infection. Does anyone have any other ideas? Does this sound serious? I have a trip planned for this weekend and I really don't want to cancel it b/c of this. Part of my problem is that I don't have health insurance, can I go to any clinic for this or do you think I will need to see a urologist for this?
Avatar f tn They will also check ur urine for kidney infection. If the pain gets unbearable, definitely go to ER. You dont want to be in too much pain while pregnant, it can stress baby out. Ive dealt with numerous stones.
Avatar m tn However, it alleviated the pain, which I thought was a little price to pay for fighting off the kidney infection. On the 7th day I decided I was going to follow up with my family physician to ensure that these works are working because 7 damn days and I was still in pain so perhaps my body was resisting them or something. Honestly, I was freaking out!
Avatar n tn I have had a reoccurring infection after a root canal over the past two years. Now my hands & feet are swelling up and showing arthritis like symptoms. Very painful. I am having mouth surgery very soon to "clean out" the cavity that has formed from the infection eating away the bone tissue in the area near where the root canal was done.

7523889 tn?1393622279 I had a fever and cramps like pierod or diarrhea cramps. I thought as well it was a kidney infection and turns out it was subchronic bleed and a uti. I wish u the best of luck!! Let us know!!
6698677 tn?1388419893 t drink TOO much pure, clean water when you have a kidney infection. Since you are on antibiotics AND have an infection...be sure to push the Vit C. Here's a tidbit for ya I found: "Take a daily dose of vitamin C to help cure kidney infections and prevent future infections. The vitamin will raise the acidity level of your urine, making it harder for bacteria to thrive in the kidneys and urinary tract." Antibiotics also pull Vit C from our bodies...
2176548 tn?1340677817 Anyone here had a kidney infection before? What helps for pain? And how long does the pain normally last??
Avatar f tn Has anyone ever had a kidney infection while pregnant... if so what are some signs?

I am 26 weeks and 2 days. Any ideas on what i should do to help prevent the hospital?! Is cranberry juice good to dribk and water?!

Avatar f tn Yes any type of infection can hurt the baby if not treated u really need to go to ur Ob/gyn and get checked to find out what u have and get treated
Avatar f tn I ended up in even more pain Saturday evening and they admitted me and finally realized it was a kidney infection. I spent from Saturday night until Wednesday afternoon. I was on iv antibiotics and iv fluids the whole time. I was discharged with instructions for modified bed rest and had to take macrobid the rest of my pregnancy to avoid it reoccurring. I ended up having my son at 35 weeks.
Avatar m tn I have looked at symptoms of kidney infection and the only part that fits is the throbbing back pain. No fever, no nausea or vomiting, chills. I am fatigued, but I haven't been sleeping well because if the throbbing pain. I have been drinking plenty of fluids, cranberry juice and lots of water. I hate to waste the money on another doctor visit if they are just going to give me a muscle relaxer for back pain.
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 I never had a kidney infection but at 29 weeks I had kidney stones that caused my urine to be pure blood and contractions that required magnesium to stop. I would go in just in case.
168077 tn?1200231377 I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but any helpful responses would be greatly appreciated. This morning I woke up and my left side below my ribs in my back is aching pretty bad and if I tap it with my fist it hurts worse. A few years ago I went to the doctor with what I though was a UTI but when they checked my urine there was no sign of an infection so they gave me medicine and told me if it happened again that I may have to see a urologist.
Avatar m tn kidney damage, infection, or failure, displacement of the stoma and infections to the urinary tract, fever, hernia, urinary problems, chills or blood or pus in the urine. Aside from the increased fluid intake and emptying the bag often, Vitamin C supplements can prevent infection- and odor-causing bacteria from accumulating in the urine. Take care and keep us posted.
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
489000 tn?1364302227 I had a bad case of pyelonephritis (kidney infection) this past week, I had to spend a night in the hospital. It was so painful, when I stood up, I could barely catch my breath. I had to walk hunched over until it let up a bit so that I could make it to the car. 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!
Avatar f tn Does anyone know if it is possible to still have a kidney infection after rounds of antibiotics like Cipro and Levaquin? Every time I go to the ER they tell me that my urine is free of bacteria but contains white blood cells. I have extreme flank pain and abdominal pain.
Avatar f tn How long should a severe kidney infection last? I have had it for 5 weeks now and still having a hard time recovering. Still sometimes have chills and fever, night sweats and very fatigued. I have taken omnicef and taken all of it.
