Kidney stones and bladder spasms

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones and bladder spasms


Avatar f tn We were shuttled around several doctors and treated for different disorders such as kidney stones, hernias, bladder and kidney bacterial infections and peptic ulcers to no avail. Some thought we were crazy. Ultimately, a worm ova (for Schistosoma) was found in both our urine sediments and we were treated with praziquantel. There are other medications specific for different parasites.
Avatar n tn Called an ambulance, said it sounded like kidney stones. Took an ambulance, plane and another ambulance to a hospital in the city-I live in the jungle in Costa Rica. The x-rays and ultrasound show a kidney stone. On the other side it also shows some white spots that may be calcium or other small stones. The doctor said the diarreah was unrelated. I stayed in the hospital overnight-no diarreah. Came home yeaterday and last night severe diarreah all night again.
Avatar n tn I told my vet and he seemed to think there may be kidney stones causing the problem and to give him aspirin for a week and get back to him if it did not improve, but the aspirin caused stomach irritation and didn't make any difference, so I stopped giving it to him. I am wondering if anyone out there can help me figure this out - could it be the food causing cramps or gas? Or a side effect of the Baytril? If it IS kidney stones, why is there no trouble with the flow of urine?
4525198 tn?1425523277 and I have been DX'd with a neurogenic bladder....but I also have tethered cord which can also affect the bladder.... I have had issues and went to the ER with what I thought was stones of some sort as well....many muscle spasms too.... Did you not have EDS ruled out b4 surgery?
Avatar f tn I recently discovered I had kidney stones....and now, tomorrow, I am having my second lithotripsy, as the first one did not work. How long do they keep these miserable, stents in, and how many times can one get lithotripsies? Does surgery come next if the lithotripsies don't work? It's funny---I am a nurse, and have been for many, many years, but don't know these answers. I work full time, yet, and this stent is making my life very difficult.
Avatar n tn About 17 years when I was pregnant, I had kidney stones on both sides and it doesn't feel the same. Do you think this is gall bladder related? Any ideas....
Avatar m tn Hello, Any physical obstruction to the flow of urine, such as a structural abnormality, kidney stone, or the backflow of urine from the bladder into the ureters increases the likelihood of pyelonephritis.If the kidney stones are causing obstruction to the urine flow you need treatment. You may need tests like blood work-up and ultrasound. Consult a nephrologist.I hope it helps. Best luck and regards!
Avatar n tn This started with a severe kidney infection (very high white blood count & nitrites & blood in urine) where I had a fever & was sore all down my entire trunk of my body with no burning when I urninated & not just pain in my kidney, it was my entire body from my ribs down to my thighs. A day or two into the Cipro (had to take for 3 weeks) it started to hurt in my mid back waist area & had a sharp pain in my side when I walked.
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 f tn When I was younger I can recall seeing a specialist, being treated in a preventative measure for kidney infection, which I'll be honest as a child I was stubborn and tongued half of my meds. I believe it was for the majority diagnosed as UTI's. As I got older, they became a little less frequent in my life and today all I can link it to is stress and dehydration. I was in a very stressful environment from birth until I was about 21 years old - last year.
Avatar n tn I started having bladder spasms on Sunday and by Monday had excruciating pain in my back etc. I was diagnosed with a kidney stone. It is small...3mm. The CT scan showed the stone to be about 4" above my bladder. I've experienced kidney stones before...starting at the age of 10, I think this is my 4th time having kidney stones. (I'm now 47...
Avatar f tn Does anyone diagonased with lupus suffer from crazy muscle spasms and twitching.
Avatar f tn It's not overactive bladder, it's clearly kidney stones. I have brought the ones I've caught in to him and yet still nothing to help relieve the pain. I was also told during one of the ER visits that my colon is inflamed. I've read this can happen from antibiotics.
475555 tn?1469307939 Hi there. I 2 am in stage 4 Hep-c w/gall stones. I seen my internal med. dr 1 st sent me 4 x-rays & a sonar gram. She then mentioned a Hyderscan which I never heard of.

A friend went w/me 2 write notes w/my memory scan being the size of a gnat since my brain sugery...
Avatar m tn Is it common for a patient to have back spasms when they have a kidney stone? The doctor said he felt and saw the back spasms. Could it have been kidney spasms if there is such a thing?
Avatar n tn I had several kidney stones and hydronephrosis while pregnant (mostly due to improper or inability of the kidney to drain), but at that time my nephroptosis hadn't been diagnosed. If you have a good doctor (OB/GYN and Urologist) you should have minimal issues during pregnancy. If the docs are watching you closely this should avoid serious complication. Good luck!
Avatar n tn It seems that I am literally dehydrating at night. (I am female, 47yrs old and have had kidney stones a few times since the age of 10) Does anyone have any information on why I can't keep hydrated and if this is the reason my bladder is continually spasming? Thanks!
Avatar n tn I've been hospitalized several times, had all kinds of tests - CAT scans with and without contrast and dye, blood work, etc. etc. They've ruled out kidney stones, gallstones, appendix, ovarian cause, growths, etc. But the pain is so severe that I faint. It can last anywhere from 1/2 hour to many hours. Sometimes, Gas-x and advil seem to help. What helps the most is lying down and stretching in the opposite direction of the spasm.
Avatar f tn Bridget, I am having the exact same problems. Had an MRCP in Oct 2011 stint and stones removed, ERCP on Jan. 26, 2012 stones and bile removed, ANOTHER ERCP done on Jan 31, 2012.....My live counts go sky high, jaundice, orange urine, etc. My gallbladder was removed in March of 2011. I ALSO need to get to the bottom of this mess. I can feel it starting up again. Please let me know if you don't mind what your dr. is telling you.
Avatar f tn When I pass kidney stones and they reach my bladder, I have terrible bladder spasms. What can I do to ease this pain?
Avatar f tn If the kidney stone blocks the ureters and urine builds up in the kidney, then you have horrible pain and risk infections. Be sure he knows it came out.
Avatar m tn It tends to be more towards the middle or tip of the penis 95% of the time, though a few times, I've have an odd awareness of the region between my testicles and buttocks. Both bladder and urethra discomfort are usually easily ignored, with occasionally an Advil or two if the bladder is particularly bad. Often, there's little or no sensation of anything wrong at all. Ejaculation also feels...a little odd sometimes.
Avatar f tn 05g nometaphrine- 399mcg metaphrines- 195mcg total 594mcg total protien urine 24 hour- 84 mcg aldostrine- 49mcg I am awaiting appt with new nephrologist to go over blood work.......................................................... However, urologist told me that my kidney disease and kidney stones SHOULD NOT cause pain (unless actively trying to pass stones). i can completely tell its my kidneys that are inflammed on and off.
Avatar f tn I'm a 23 year old female and have been dealing with constant kidney stones for the past 2 1/2 years. In June of 2013, I took a trip to the ER due to excruciating side pain. A CT scan revealed a 6mm stone was beginning to drop into my ureter. They sent me home with pain meds and told me (nonchalantly) to go to a different hospital if it gets worse due to their hospital lacking an on-call Urologist.
Avatar f tn I was pretty sure it was my kidney, because friday I had a lower UTI and saturday night I was having painful spasms in my side and back that was bringing me to my knees. When I went to the doctor he noticed that there was a lot of infection in my urine. He had a CT Scan done to check for any other organs that may be causing the pain.
