Avatar f tn She was very sick just over a week before she was diagnosed, and they don't know if she was sick from the kidney stones,or if she had the stomach flu,and getting dehydrated caused the kidney stones. However she never really got too "dehydrated" when she was so sick. She did vomit alot, but was still having plenty of urine. So who knows. Any experience on how long these things take to pass? Thanks again.
Avatar f tn definitely could be stones. i had 1 and mu hubby had them 2x.
Avatar n tn He sent me for a CT scan to check for kidney stones and this came back normal and no signs of infection were found in the urine. I am supposed to go back in a week for another urinalysis to check for blood. Since I saw the doctor, I have been passing white pieces of tissue in my urine intermittently. These range in size from a speck to about the size of a dime. They are white, except for one was pink and white. I am not on my period, but it is due in the next week or so.
82861 tn?1333457511 He appears to be about 2 years old, and we were told that dals have a tendency to develop bladder stones. I understand they need a chicken or lamb-based diet (no beef) and wonder what other dietary measures we need to take. Are there any supplements we should give him to help prevent stone formation? Maggie, our other pup, is a dal x lab mix, so is it correct to assume she likely has the same tendency and should be treated the same as Doc?
Avatar f tn I'm a woman in my early twenties with GERD, ovarian cysts, annual kidney stones, lactose intolerance, and pellet stools. I began having lactose intolerance when I was a kid. I have had pellet stool since I can remember. Everything else appeared when I wasin my senior year of college. I've been on Nexium for 2 years. I do not take it everyday bc I know it's bad for you. I feel fine if I just take them 2 times a week. Tums and Prilosec does not work.

Avatar f tn I have multiple stones in both kidneys, doctors just say my body is a stone making machine and always run urine on me and sometimes its full of protein and sometimes it has microscopic blood and sometimes visible, and just ever so often it has a bit of an infection but rarely. I have pain all the time on my left sid emore than right, sharp stabbing sometimes in the bladder and sometimes just ripping down side and into hip for hours or days or weeks.
Avatar n tn I found a suppository medication w the belladonna flower works best for my kidney pain and stones and spasms your urologist can prescribe this ornother meds, but i would be weary of narcotics other than that, as most contain Tylenol and Tylenol damages kidneys ultimately m. Change your diet around no black tea black coffee soda or too much bread.. these contain oxylates which is what forms stones in your body I switched to green tea m( more caffeine than coffee and hydrated you and is safe!

"The Magnesium Miracle.". It will help you understand your symptoms and have instructions what to take and how much,and you will be amazed at what problems lack of Mg can cause.

Avatar f tn Sorry to hear what you're going through, but yes, I've suffered with these nasty stones for well over 30 years now and some were multiple stones at one time in the same year, and then more stones at different times of that same year. In my case, here I was drinking all this water and still getting these multiple stone episodes of stones. I did some serious looking at what might be causing me to have this many stones, this frequently.
Avatar n tn Since then, the pain has continued and my urologist cannot find any stones in my ureter through x-ray and IVP. He believes that the small stones in my kidney cannot be causing the pain and the stone in my ureter must be gone. He is now telling me to have my ovaries checked. I do not believe for one second that it is anything but a kidney stone. You ALL know the pain. It is the same as it has always been.
Avatar n tn It makes me short of breath and terribly uncomfortable since I have a desk job. The closest thing I found to match my symptoms is kidney stones. I have a doctors appt tomorrow. Am I on the right track?
Avatar m tn Hello, i am a 20 year old student and recently found that i have two kidney stones. I believe they have both moved from my kidney to my bladder and was wondering how long it takes to pass them through my urine once they are already in my bladder. These stones are 1mm and 2mm and also i was wondering to what extent the pain is going to be when i pass them?
1674610 tn?1317005820 How are the eats of drinking coffee and tea affect pacreastis? Why when I eat right diet still have issues badly? Can they cure pancreas elevations? I Amin a early stages of diagnose and already in servier pain. One starting I V hospital stay?

Avatar m tn First off, many of the herbs and supplements suggested for kidney stones, at best, may aid in urine flow to some degree, but there is no plant or vitamin that can MELT kidney stones, because all stones are made with varying amounts of CALCIUM, which cannot be dissolved without risking losing other things made of calcium such as bones and teeth! Only Uric acid stones have the least amount of calcium content and therefore CAN be reduced in size through medication.
Avatar n tn I've been experiencing some symptoms which I believe point to gall stones but my latest symptoms are throwing me a bit and i want to avoid unnecessary gall bladder removal and as such would like opinions. History: I work permanent night shifts: About 6 months to a year ago i had a few episodes whereby I had acute upper central abdomen pain around 4am which disappeared in a space of seconds within 1h.
443757 tn?1217554790 Usually you have to drink it for many years, but the alkalines, inclusive of all forms od speed, have an irritating effect and change PH making stones more formable. Also your genetics and cholesterol levels determine if and when you will get stones and how resislient your kidneys are, so at any age there is risk to certain people, and certainly to those on Riba therapy. I would tell your doctor about the pain, especially if drinking water does not clear and keep it at bay.
Avatar f tn I was concearned that maybe I was drinking to much soda and not enough water, so I took soda, coffee and tea out of my diet completely. I still ended up having issues with Kidney stones that winter. Ever since the issue with the Kidney stones I have had some issues with my kidneys, the stones did pass naturally. I am now 24 weeks pregnant, and experiancing intense pain in my right flank. I had a diagnostic ultrasound done on my kidney and they didnt find anything abnormal.
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 hello, I recently had a 5mm kidney stone and had it removed. The urologist was going to put a stent inside of me. And when they did the procedure they were able to remove it. I have to see a urologist. He told me not to get pregnant. I was in the hospital trying to pass it for 3 days and it was worse than child birth. What is the best thing to do to prevent that from coming back? I quite drinking pop and coffee. i have been mostly drinking water. Will that help?
Avatar m tn You should drink 8 oz of water for every cup of coffee you drink.When I had kidney stones my dr said for everything that you drink that is colored(coffee,tea,dark soft drinks etc) drink 8 oz of water afterwards.Water helps to keep your kidneys in good working order and can prevent you from getting kidney stones.I learned the hard way.I would not only rely on it as total liquid.
Avatar m tn Good for you for deciding to quit! I don't know much about kidney and liver problems but can give you insight into a few things that I hope will help you. 1) The pain in your back could be your kidney or kidney stones or your liver. 2) Substituting all meals for alcohol will result in weight loss initially. 3)As for your breath, it smells different how? If it is sweet, that could be in indication of diabetes. My biological father drank himself to the grave at the age of 34.
Avatar f tn I have read that with the ascites comes portal hypertension and that the coffee grounds is actually dried blood. Could he have been bleeding internally? My husband has been upset about this since he was the one that first noticed this. I tried to explain to him that if he wasnt there when it happened that possibly he could have bled to death and possibly start to vomit bright, red blood. It was like he was supposed to be there and help my Pap. I miss him so much.
Avatar f tn hi my friend has kidney stones and is 9 weeks pregnant she is in a lot of pain and has been bleeding is this a sign that she will lose her baby.
Avatar n tn An abdominal Xray is used to look for kidney stones. Bacteria in the urine and flank pain can mean a kidney infection / pyelonephritis but this is usually treated with at least ten days of antibiotics . Your urine culture can direct your antibiotic treatment. I doubt they would have sent you home if they really thought you had an appendicitis. Gallstones can also be in the differential and can be ruled out with an ultrasound.
Avatar f tn Have you had an IVP test? This is an x-ray with contrast, and is the best test for kidney stones.
Avatar f tn I was thinking that this could be a UTI or kidney stones but as we live in a small village in Alaska and it is a monumental monetary undertaking (plane ticket or ferry ticket just to get to a larger town with a doctor, not to mention transportation and THEN the doctor visit... she is on a fixed income), we need to be VERY sure its not something that can be rectified at home before we commit to the expenditure. Any advice, recommendations, suggestions would be helpful and appreciated. Thank you.
