Kidney stones and heat

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones and heat


Avatar n tn You have to drink a lot of water, and stay away from cranberry juice, and vitamin c, my doc told me those two are great for a UTI, but are bad for any kidney problems! Heat does help, but moist heat. Bath tubs and rice bags, the more your tubes from the kidneys can relax, the less the pain. Also make someone rub your back. I know it seems a long stretch but I lean against my fist where it hurts, it helps a ton!
Avatar f tn as long as you have a normal kidney on the other side. Certainly the pain your having could be from ureteral stones, and ureteroscopy is preferred in lower ureteral stones in child-bearing age women because lithotripsy may bruise the ovaries if used for lower ureteral stones. Infection is unlikely as infection and an obstructing stone usually leads to a high fever and is an emergency.
192055 tn?1263559137 Hi, Kidney stones may be due to dehydration, diet, chronic stress, genetics, and even cadmium poisoning.If one parent had kidney stones, there is an increased risk in his or her children.Kidney stones tend to be recurring, typically reforming within seven years.In serious cases of kidney stones an ultrasound that breaks down the stones may be advised. I hope this helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn The nurse suspected kidney stones because I of the pain and because I told her that I did see blood when I went to the restroom a week ago, but the x ray and urine test came back fine. They prescribed neproxin and told me to put heat on it and drink lots of water. It is wednesday and the pain is still happening. It is not as severe as before but there is a constant throbbing and twisting on my right side and the mid area of my back between my hips and the bottom of my shoulder blade.
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!
489228 tn?1291535054 that helps. I've gotten some nasty pings and pangs in the heat and while doing gardening! The emails should be fixed soon . It was unexpected software issue when we had a new release the other week. Hoping we are all doing well and this is why a bit slow on the community ?!
Avatar f tn I am out of work so I had to go to the public hospital emergency room. They took a urine sample and x ray of my body. The nurse suspected kidney stones but the x ray and urine test came back fine. They prescribed neproxin and told me to put heat on it and drink lots of water. It is wednesday and the pain is still happening.
Avatar m tn I have learned more than what I knew just before I made my post. I have tried the heat and OTC meds and nothing seems to help relive the pain. I deal with it as best as I can. I have a ct wensday moring with contrast hoping that at least something shows up. But Im not gonna play the you have to go back to this doc game anymore.
Avatar f tn I have actual gallbladder stones but quiet for 2 yrs and that is how they better stay. I have numerous small stones in my kidney but most have cleared the past 2yrs ... the largest only 4mm. I am feeling decent for first time in years but I can relate to your pain. Definitely have it checked out with the new symptoms .. I am clueless on those ... heat works best for me, too and hot hot baths with long soaks ... It is draining. We are here for you Fran!!!!
Avatar f tn I don't have any history of kidney problems, no stones, infection of any sort and it's not a consistant pain it comes and goes. The feeling is a warm deep sorness. I do have a history of lower back pain caused by arthritis could they be related?
Avatar n tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Since you have heat sensation in lower back and knee pain, there is a chance that you have compression of the spinal nerves in the lumbo-sacral spine region. This can happen due to overuse of the lower back as in work requiring too much of bending, lifting weight, fall on the back, overweight, canal stenosis, bone disease, spondylosis, poor posture etc.
Avatar m tn If the pain persists, it would be best to have this evaluated further to rule out kidney causes such as infection or stones. Try to exercise and eat low fat and low salt diet to help prevent any increase in your blood pressure I hope this helps. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Musculoskeletal pain typically gets worse with movement, and is relieved by heat or massage. Common causes of kidney pain include kidney stones, kidney infection or pyelonephritis, and any bleeding within the kidney from injury or otherwise, where the blood supply is suddenly cut off because of blockage of the artery to the kidney. It would be best to have it evaluated by your doctor. Ultrasound or xray may be done to better visualize the structures. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar n tn It comes and goes anywhere from 2 times a day to every 2-3 min. It has no heat to the touch and no sign of discoloration. I am going to ask my doctor about it on Monday. This is crazy so many people are having the same symptoms. Hope someone gets a straight answer.
Avatar m tn We can speculate until next week, and not know for sure, and by then, your results will be back lol. I don't know a lot about kidney stones, but my ex bf used to get them, and his doc told him that once a male gets kidney stones, he is more likely to get them again. You'll know in a couple of days if you pass them. And throw out the nylon underwear lol. You don't like them, they aren't good for your skin, etc. That way you won't be tempted to wear them on low-laundry days.
Avatar n tn Pressure on the lumbar nerves can cause pain due to spondylotic changes in vertebrae, degenerative bone disease, herniated disc, bone disease, cancer or TB of the vertebra or bad posture. Kidney problems, stones in the urinary tract and colitis or IBS are the other possibilities. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Depending on the clinical findings you will need to get a MRI of lower spine, CT scan of abdomen, urine examination etc.
Avatar f tn I just posted a comment for my symptoms and noticed your posting. It could very well be kidney stones or maybe an infection in your kidneys. I hope your appointment goes well and good luck.
Avatar n tn To rule out an underlying urologic disease, I suggest that you have a urinalysis done to rule out an underlying infection. BUN and creatinine levels as well as a KUB or kidney ,ureter and bladder ultrasound may be able to help. A muculoskeletal or arthritic pain may also be a differential. If you are currently spending prolonged hours sitting down or when lying down position at night offers some discomfort then this may be musculoskeletal in origin.
661200 tn?1225486613 I have just returned from the vet and fund out this morning that my 12 year old Golden Retriever-Lab called Topaz has an enlarged heart and Kidney stones. Because of the heart condition the vet doesnt want to put him under general anesthesia for kidney stone surgery. I live in New Delhi and the resources are limited. However, I am doing the best I can and praying for a healthy and happy dog.
Avatar f tn This is one of the most difficult things I've ever had to deal with. My beloved Gypsy is dying of kidney failure. Gypsy is a Jack Russell Terrier and she turned 18...yes 18...on Christmas Day. It's just so hard to know when it is "time." I prayed and prayed that she would give us one final parting gift and die on her own in her sleep...but she is SUCH a fighter and refused to surrender to this thing.
Avatar f tn said it was okay to take the Darvocet that I have on hand, but it only takes the edge off the pain. I've had stones before, and had to have 3 of them blasted by lithotripsy. They can't do this while pregnant. I don't know if there's anything they can do. I will probably see my Dr. on Monday, but I was hoping you ladies might know something I don't.
Avatar n tn The doc's office, the RN, called back today and said I should get a urine test for blood and an xray. His first thought is a kidney stone. I told him I never had this problem before and he said well you've never been on interferon before. He's right about that one! My GP will get me in much faster so I'll go there tomorrow. fullofhope- He did say all the water I'm drinking could have loosened something. It sounds just like you describe and it's worse today than yesterday. Thanks.
Avatar m tn Hello & welcome.....First, She needs to be checked for a UTI (Urinary Tract Infection)......These are very common and need to be treated with oral antibiotics before they end up as Bladder or Kidney Infections.......While there, I'd inquire about the possibility of Kidney/Bladder Stones.....They also will produce blood in the urine.......Good luck & let us know what you find out.......Karla P.S. Thank you for adopting.......
Avatar n tn Then I laid on a heating pad (low setting) and slept. I alterated it with ice on my back, too. The heat and the ice seemed to numb the pain on my back. Be careful with painkillers - they can be addicting. Moderate Pain - drink lemon juice (no sugar) straight and take over the counter anti-inflammatory pill (relieve swelling). Sit in hot (as tolerated) bath. Drink water or lemon water. Use ice and heat on back - alterating to rellieve pain.
Avatar n tn These agents aren't known to cause kidney stones. Most kidney stones in the US are caused by our diet which is rich in meat protein. Calcium supplementation does increase the risk of kidney stones. As far as the blood pressure goes, he should probably have his dose of the lisinopril reduced. Alternatively, there are other agents such as calcium channel blockers, beta blockers or Angiotensine receptor blockers that can also be tried. I would probably avoid diuretics at this point.
Avatar n tn R. and they found a 4mm x 7mm kidney stone. They gave me pain meds and sent me home with a prescription of Flowmax. They told me it will likely pass on it's own to use a strainer and keep watch. All this time later, I have never passed the stone and I have felt well until a week or so ago. Pain and burning while urinating and the pressure like I have to go with little outcome. So, I either have that stone lodged in my bladder or I have a UTI.
1600904 tn?1340987945 Also, my headaches have been worse then usual this last month and it seems that I spend half my day extremely nauseous but never throw up. Also, I have had kidney stones many times and last night I started having lower back pain that wrapped around to the right lower abdomen. It was similar to prior kidney stone attacks but not near as severe. Last night I was wondering if I was maybe passing a SMALL stone as I can still urinate and I am not crippled with pain as I am with a larger stone.
Avatar m tn Secondly, I have severe lower back pain and take pain killers. I tried heat and even cold packs, but the pain is always there. I am told that a UTI can cause the pain but why is it always present?
467604 tn?1214942333 The area you are describing is right where the kidney sits as well. An ultrasound would rule out kidney stones too. If your gall bladder and kidney looked OK on ultrasound, I would then probably suspect some kind of musculo-skeletal pain. It sounds like your doctor is on the ball with ruling out contractions/preterm labor when you have the pain. If it is musculoskeletal ( a pulled muscle from moving?) you are on the right track with Tylenol and rest. Heat is OK too. Hope this is helpful!
Avatar m tn You asked about the relationship between kidney stones and urinary tract infections. In fact, the formation of kidney stones and urinary great links, in the continuous development of kidney stones, it is prone to urinary tract infections. If fever, back pain, pus in urine appears, it could be urinary tract infection. Recently, your symptoms increased and attacked frequently, you are recommended to see the urology physicians. In your daily life, please drink plenty of water, do more exercise.
