Avatar f tn I just happened to decide to see a friend who happened to also be a urologist as I did not have medical insurance and knew he would let me pay it out. He ran a series of tests and came to find I had chronic kidney stones. A total of 6. Just in there. Probably been there for years. If you have high blood pressure on top of chronic stones I highly recommend you get tested. A CT scan is the best way to get diagnosed and make sure you see a Urologist who.
Avatar n tn kidney stones need assessed by a nephrologist and also sometimes may be a calcium disorder and endocrinologists see this as well.
Avatar m tn Men between the ages of 20 and 70 have a higher incident of stones. I'm sure you know all this and more. And that is not your question. HIPPA and employment laws restrict an employer from question your medical history. For example an employer cannot ask you why you take opiates or why you cannot lift 100 lbs. What they can ask is if you are able to perform all the duties of the position. You are under no obligation to reveal any medical condition.
Avatar m tn Recently, he had to go to the ER because a severe pain that turn up to be passing of a kidney stone, and two more one in each kidney that eventually will come down. He eats healthy and drinks plenty of fluids. The only new medication is Doxycycline. He has stopped taking it because it seems to be the culprit. This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/Neurology/Doxycycline-Headache/show/1366946">Doxycycline Headache</a>.
Avatar n tn ============================================================= Dear JJ, Kidney stones and hypertension are common diagnoses, and often develop completely separately. Studies have tried to determine if one treatment for kidney stones, extracorporeal shock wave lithotrypsy (ESWL) causes hypertension, or not. These studies have basically inconclusive in this regard. Hypertension is a possible outcome of long term obstruction of a kidney from kidney stones.
Avatar n tn I have a postive diagnosis of both kidney stones and hypertension. Is there any relationship between the two?
Avatar f tn It is a concern, especially because I had endoscope and gastropcy scope done three weeks ago and was also diagnosed with hiatus hernia and still waiting for special kidney tests done. Of course, this goes along with all the other garbage I am dealing with, and now every 4 - 5 days have to be on fluids for a day or two because of recurring Illeus, and after 2 major surgeries for bowel obstruction, and 4 recent hospitalization with NG tubes etc, I can say I am starting to give up hope.
Avatar f tn While kidney diseases may be a secondary cause of hypertension, it is best that you check with your nephrologist also to evaluate your kidney stones especially if has been chronic. Take care and do keep us posted.

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 f tn i was recently diagnois with severe hypertension i had a kidney ultrasound and they found that i have kidney stones a cyst and a mass on my left adrenal gland.i would like to know if i could live with the mass or will it have to be removed. i am presently on exforge for the blood pressure.
Avatar m tn Hi, this is actually PepperJeff responding to my own thread. I can't remember my password for PepperJeff, so am using an old login Anyway. I had shockwave lithotripsy a month ago. Seems that blocked stone had gone fully blocked and I developed hydronephrosis (enlarged kidney) sometime from January to the end of April when they did a followup. Don't know how long it lasted or if there is permanent damage.
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 f tn for a pain in my kidney that radiates under the hip into the groin area (ultrasound showed no stones). He now believes the pain could be from a herniated disk. The BP fluctuation- 150/99 at exam (1/2 hr earlier my home monitor showed 149/99 so it's pretty accurate) anyway, the fluctuation has my MD puzzled. He did an EKG-(good) and a Glucose-110 (after eating). I don't know what they're for but now he's ordered these tests...
Avatar m tn It doesn't always show up on a CT Scan from what I understand. I feel really bad for you .. I, too, have had many stones and some show up and others don't on the CT Scans and some are missed on ultrasound and pass 24hrs later. Ask your new doc about diet for the oxalate ones and maybe parathyroid check if calcium based. Keep us posted!

If you would like to here more about my story I will happily tell you.
Avatar f tn the urethra on the one kidney is very narrow, intern gets bad infections in the bladder, and at times bed ridden. she has been taking antiboitics on and off for a while. she has been to see a specialist but he still has not found a solution. the family is depart. this can not go on, as she is sick every month. and as she gets older it will get worse and take its toll. she is now 62. i am hoping some one will read this and send me a reply. is there anyone who can recomend anything.
Avatar f tn I can imagine how painful and tiresome it must all be ....and my heart goes out to you. I've had multiple kidney stones also. I assume they are unable to provide a specific diagnosis for your under the rib pain.... or do they believe it is related to the kidney issues? I can certainly relate to be tired of "pain meds" however we often have little choices if we want to tolerate our pain and function to some degree.
Avatar n tn Over the past 5 months I have had chronic fatigue, nauseous and pain in back that comes and goes. All of June had diarhea. Late June hospitalized with kidney stones. August hospital same symptoms, dehydration, low potassium, flank pain, infection, fatigue, nauseous, blood in urine. No stones. Ultra sound showed mass right ovary. Left ovary small cyst. Not removed. Right ovary and mass removed in Sept. Mass diagnosed as hemoratic cyst? Size of tennis ball. August, Sept Oct.
Avatar f tn For me the blood is the only way we can actually see I am in infection, now i know by the pain and symptoms but because the infection is within the stones in the kidney, not enough bacteria sloughs off to be able to show on standard tests. It can be very frustrating when you know something isn't right for you and no one seems to listen... are you having pain etc,?
Avatar f tn Now I have to have the other side done. I just was wondering if anyone has had stones blasted and is this a good way to get rid of stones? I would love to hear other's thoughts on this subject.
Avatar n tn Okay, I know a lot of information already, I am 26, I have malignant hypertension, and a scarred atrophied left kidney that does not work anymore. I had 3-5 UTI's/pyleonephritis [kidney infections] a year since I was 12 till I developed hypertension when i was 24. fortunately, i have not had another infection in about 30 months, but i did develop one early July. Here are somethings that I do that I feel help a lot...
527758 tn?1246399967 It was bad enough to send me to the hospital. They ran tests on my blood and urine. All came back normal. No gallbladder problem showed up or kidney stones. I am still belching (Day 6), but the pain in my back subsided after about 2 hours and has not come back. Are the two related and do you believe the belching could be related to the IBS or to my heart? Would the blood work they did at the ER have showed anything if it were my heart?

Avatar n tn php Other causes of blood in the urine include kidney infections, kidney stones, and bladder cancer. Has he had any blood tests done? If yes, was there any other sign, such as anemia or elevated ESR? If his renal function is failing you need to take him to a center where he can receive the attention of a nephrologist and an oncologist, if it turns out to be cancer ( and I'm sorry to say it seems that way). Do write in with any doubts you have.
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 m tn Pain can cause elevation in BP. Nigella sativa (black seed oil) treats both hypertension and kidney stones. You can order it on Amazon. Look for a brand that is highly rated by users and cold pressed and organic. I take it every day for other things like constipation. It is great stuff. Try mixing it with organic juice.

Avatar n tn Though, I've read that it is generic. Other than my father having kidney stones as a child and my aunt having a cyst on her ovary, there is no other relation. I don't know much about anything right now. Only that, it's causing me alot of pain, to the point of feeling nausious, and that the doctors said not to worry about it at all that they will all eventually expload or dissolve...? Please help me alittle, thanks!
