Avatar n tn Do you agree that it was kidney stones? And that we are doing the right thing with the cyst..taking the wait and see approach?
Avatar m tn For the record, I've had seven kidney stones by the age of 22, I KNOW pain, and whatever I'm going through right now is no joke- I'm not a wussy. Whether it's lupus or not... I just want to get it figured out. I can't miss school when I'm so close to the end. Night!!
1344197 tn?1392822771 — which took over Premarin and Prempro maker Wyeth Pharmaceuticals last year — noted that the government research was not designed to examine kidney stone risk, and pointed to a less rigorous study that found no link between hormones and kidney stones.

Avatar n tn 3 I started having severe pain (like having a catheter put in) and the need to urinate constantly with very little coming out. Then I started leaking uncontrollably with little kidney pain on and off .Was put on a antibiotic.Had another CT scan done,the urine leaking finally stopped after a week and a half.(thank god)and the kidney pain is still a little,on and off. I was told by the urologist that there was still some blockage(from a stone) both him & the gyn.
Avatar f tn Also get an ultrasound lower abdomen to rule out any kidney or ureteric stones. I sincerely suggest you to consult a urologist and get it evaluated. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn I have a history of kidney stones so I have wondered if it could be that but I have not had any of my typical kidney stones symptoms. My dr's office called today and said that they wanted me to try some Estrogen cream to see if perhaps these symptoms are due from dryness, but I really don't think this is going to help. Any ideas on what to do or what it could be from?

18070169 tn?1463179514 No UTI, no infections in any of the organs and no stones or anything in the kidney or gallbladder. At this time I was also taking zolpidem every night. I read some stuff on zolpidem side effects and it appeared that after my surgery some of the rare side effects started cropping up. I attributed my anxiety to that. So I quit the zolpidem ct (which I probably shouldn't have) and did have a miserable few weeks, but a lot of the pains I was feeling went away.
Avatar f tn Because I have recently had polyps and overgrowth of endometrium, I had to stop using them. I was without estrogen for some time in this year, and then I used local estrogen (Vagifem) and Vaginal balans. My vagina and vaginal atrium and urethra are in poor condition. I have also had osteopenia previously. And I have hypercalcemia, I should not use calcium pills. Could it be possible that I have cystitis or vaginitis? I hardly have any discharge from vagina.
Avatar f tn Hi, What other symptoms are present and what other diagnostic tests were done? It is indeed possible to have urinary tract infection and kidney stones together. If it has been 6 months and the infection does not go away with antibiotics, further evaluation may need to be done. You may indeed benefit from urologist consult. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn i went to a dr for a ladder fall at work and an xray revealed mild aortic calcification and was given a print out describing such. Was told to go to a dr. I went and had another xray and cholestrol blood work . Cholestrol came back hight but xray did not show anything (now have changed eating habits) . dr said bring the print out as i forgot and now says not to drink ANY milk to help the calcification ? Now i feel as if I cannot eat anything as I now check labels and many food have calcium.
Avatar f tn I'm a paramedic and for many years I also had worsening symptoms that I initially attributed to aging, working full-time, and being a Mom. It took 7 kidney stones, a gall bladder surgery, and a thorough Naturopath to figure out the complete picture of what was going on. Turns out I had a parathyroid tumor, Hep C from a dirty needle stick, low vitamin D, a wheat gluten sensitivity, and Hashimoto's thyroiditis. (I have not liked my 40's much!
Avatar f tn As you mentioned you had a prior history of kidney stones it is best to get an ultrasound scan done of kidney ureter and bladder to rule out kidney stones. A complete clinical examination and work up is important for correct diagnosis and management. Treatment will be specific based on the cause. Keep me posted. Best luck and regards!
Avatar n tn I think thats my problem) Last year I had a hysterectomy and now have to deal w/ estrogen injections that put and extra 30lbs. on me... before Topamax .. I started on July 28th at 220lbs... as of today I'm at 194lbs.... To me that is A MIRACLE.... That Phen stuff does not work for me... Adipex makes me grumpy when I come off of it.... and my doctor said Xenical and Meridia cause really horrible bowel problems..... so Topamax was a good choice ...
Avatar f tn They thought mine was a cyst, and they did not find it until they went in and did a CT scan, thanks to having 4 kidney stones for 3 months that started moving!!
Avatar n tn I also had a uti and kidney stones some one please tell me what I should do...I dont want to have another surgery. I am 31 & have three young boys to take care of.
Avatar f tn I have constant grinding, popping, and cracking sounds in my joints all over my body, especially in my neck, very badly in my shoulders, my back, jaw, elbows, wrists, knees and hips. It does not usually hurt but my muscles and joints hurt and seem to be tense, weak and stiff. Can anxiety cause all of these CONSTANT symptoms? This problem is effecting my life and my relationships and I just want to feel normal and like my old self again.
Avatar f tn fatigue, depression,headaches, kidney stones for the past 10 years, hypertension that is not well controlled, and just recently unexplained bradycardia in the 40's . I have been on Dyazide and Lisinopril for my BP as well as Estrogen, would this affect the calcium levels, or do I have hyperparathyroidism?
Avatar n tn I have been having a difficult time getting words out, and writing and typing have been more difficult. I have a history of kidney stones, as well as reproductive problems. I have always had irregular menstrual cycles, and have almost completely lost my libido in recent years. I also have been having a lot of joint and muscle pain, especially in my feet. I literally cannot walk some nights when I get home from work, and I also have very frequent headaches.
Avatar f tn Have history of kidney stones since 17 yrs of age. The only medication I'm taking is estrogen. Have had kidney pain for 4-5 yrs and Urologist told me (4-5 yrs ago) that the pain I described, achey feeling, "was crazy. that wouldn't happen". Is my creatinine level dangerous?
Avatar n tn They say it can break down gall stones and kidney stones. I never had symptoms of kidney stones before, but at about day 3, I got some minor symptoms that went away in a couple of days. It is possible it broke down/eliminated some gravel. It literally sat on my counter for weeks before I started using it. My wife and I use it every day.
Avatar n tn He also ran a test for a strange rare yeast and sent it to the lab. We will see. I'm very hopefully the estrogen will work, my skin feels like it needs some help rebuilding or healing. If not I'm to go see a vulva specialist. Any thing else you can tell me about your situation? How long did you try the estrogen, was it cream or oral?
Avatar m tn Other possibilities are urinary tract infection, urinary stones, kidney stones or diabetes. Please get your blood sugar evaluated and discuss these possibilities with your urologist. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
696149 tn?1314324559 I know what it's like to be on it a very long time and then off for almost 2 years. When I started back on it for kidney stones, I noticed that I became happier again, and not in the 'high' sense. That 'high' goes away after a couple of weeks. When I'm on it, I act like I used to act before I was diagnosed with bi-polar.
Avatar n tn I haven't taken any hormones (estrogen, etc) for well over 15 yrs and I've done well keeping my bone density stable without them. One thing I've read is that vitamin K2 is very important, because that's the vitamin that helps make sure calcium gets where it's needed the most, which is the bones, not made into kidney stones, etc. I have a bone density scan every 2 yrs.
552235 tn?1215097402 It's funny, because I ended up on this forum only because I was letting my friends on the Ovarian Cancer Patient to patient forum know how things were going for me (hectic past few weeks) and my husband was suffering from a VERY bad bout with Kidney stones. In fact, he is having surgery tomorrow morning (and I am up way tooooo late)...Anyway, someone, I guess, figured my post was "mis-catagoized" and it ended up on this forum.
1036535 tn?1278506199 Viral infections can trigger pancreatitis. So can a high calcium level (and you do have kidney stones). And then sometimes, as we say.....s*** happens (the medical community cleans it up and calls it idiopathic). Hopefully your PCP, because he knows your history and has old charts, can pin down the cause so you can prevent a repeat performance in the future. Hopefully the Neurotin will be back to relieving your pain soon.
1571146 tn?1399913292 My hubby is feeling better and home from ER after a crazy kidney stone flare up. We are scheduled for a second follow up IUI today and he is insisting he is feeling fine, even good and is going through with it. I feel bad, but I also know I am just about to O. I woke up at 3am with another dammm UTI, and it's killing me. I think the IUI's are causing them, as I got one last cycle just after IUI.
