Kidney stones and jaw pain

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones and jaw pain


452063 tn?1324078516 I have seen at least a dozen posts with kidney stones. There has to be some correlation between opiate use and kidney stones. My surgeon showed me mine on the CT scan and it's a white circle as big as a golfball. He feels it might be from chemicals but said that it's probably from my chemo. I keep thinking that he is gonna pull out a big white opiate that either says Endo or Watson on it lol. Just wondering if anyone else was told theirs was from chemicals?
Avatar f tn About 3 months ago my throat started to hurt when I would swallow. The whole time I would get crazy jaw and ear fullness and pain but more off and on. About two months ago my tongue started to go numb on the left side, mostly near the back, but it radiates forward and sometimes affects the taste. I'm a 28 male and have seen more GP's than I can count. I have also seen 2 ENTs who scoped my nose and throat, and also gave me a CT. No significant findings for me either.
Avatar n tn I just drank some higher quality tequila and my ears and jaw are killing me. The pain is right behind where the jaw attaches to my skull and travels down to behind my jaw where it starts to turn in towards my mouth. I'v seen a lot of comments from those who have it but I haven't seen a comment about what the hell it is. Does anybody know?
Avatar f tn Lately, I have been experiencing, back pain, quite severe sometimes. I have had UTI's and kidney stones (in the past) and the pain I felt with those two conditions are similiar with the pain I am feeling now. Does anyone else with cysts feel like their kidney's hurt?

999058 tn?1257567250 blood work came back normal as did the ultrasound, no kidney stones. fast forward to now, my periods are progressing to almost unbearable, i have random back pain mid left side of my back where my kidney's at. i learn i have an ovarian cyst when my fiance rushes me into the ER sick as a dog with a kidney infection. i had a ct scan. which is how they discovered i had an ovarian cyst and a kidney infection. blood work again is normal.
Avatar n tn I too am having problems with ear pain, stiff neck, jaw pain, sinus pain and it all started with a fever and flu like symptoms. I am scheduled for a root canal on Thursday. I will let you know if it has all been related to my teeth. My dentist told me that the root of this tooth is very close to my sinuses. I felt like I had a sinus infection and an ear infection. The fever was two days after I had a crown put in.
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.
599170 tn?1300977493 once fixed all the other symptoms went away and I even escaped root canal. I've had kidney stones, gallstones and surgical pain as well as giving birth to 4 beautiful kids .. but that nerve was the worst ever and 2 of my babies were 'au natural from start to finish.
Avatar n tn I have hypo (currently dx'd thyrotoxicosis) and have pain that shoots into my jaw and ear. During my FNA last week the endocrinologist stuck the needle into thyroid nodule and pain went right to jaw and up to ear. Doc said that referred pain is common. That, said, see an ENT for your ear pain.
Avatar n tn I thought the jaw , neck and shoulder pain were unrelated but I see they're not after reading your statement . I have the same thing . A sharp pin pain on either my right or left side of my lower back ( just above my buttocks ) which eventually spreads a pain down one or both legs . The pin pain will subside but the lower ab, testicles neck and shoulders pain will intensify . The testicle pain is constantly bad but will flare with these regular sharp jolts of pain .
1474625 tn?1371100679 , but I wanted later so didn't stop with the Lortab because my post-surgery pain meds as I found out was going to be Percocet 5/325 as to be taken 1 every 4-8 hrs for severe pain and Vicodin 5/500 as to be taken 1 every 4-6 hrs for moderate pain. Both of these combined were of less strength than I was taking pre-surgery, and back surgery no less. There was no way I could withdrawal in a week from 100mg of hydrocodone effectively in order for the Percocet 5mg to work effectively.
Avatar f tn Chronic kidney stones and now gall stones too. Stomach and intestinal bleading. Required 9 pints of blood in July of this year. And for past 3 years according to daily diary, long term memory loss. Todays symptoms are severe headache, loss of ballance, blurred vission, tingling in fingers of both hands, neck pain, low back and traveling down right leg pain and stomach pain on right side, nausea, sleeplessness, confusion at times and no appetite.
Avatar f tn There are many reasons for the pain. Jaw pain and pain under the scapula( affectionately called your wings. The pallpations can of your heart are frighteming when unexpected. They all kinds of anxiety can cause an escallation in your conscious pain experience. Scleroderma is another condition that can invade a heart and the lungs. A back massage has been known to reduce that back pain. Kidney stones can cause very awful pain in the high back.
Avatar n tn I have, had pain in my vagina and my anus too! but i just take 2 modrin and go to sleep because i can't deal with the pain. Hope we both can come up with a answer for this painful painful problem.
Avatar m tn Lasts less than a minute total. I also get left arm pain, left shoulder pain, and left jaw pain. Sometimes at the same time, sometimes just shoulder and left arm pain but no chest pain. Have had Cardiac CT, numerous ekgs, 3 stress echos, two 24 hour holter monitors, a ten day monitor, rib xrays, cervical, thoracic and bracial plexus xrays. Abdominal ultrasound, upper gi scope, emd of both arms, every type of blood test, etc. All negative.
Avatar f tn (and I have had several kidney stones) The pain was in the middle and right side of my abdomen. My liver enzymes went through the roof and they told me it was a gallstone. Luckily the stone passed but they told me the gallbladder had to come out. Since the surgery all the pain that I had been having over the years is gone. The surgery was painfull for the first few days but the recovery went by quick. Now I still feel a little week but I am ok and for the first time pain free.
Avatar n tn I am going through physical therapy doing the usual tens machine, accupunture, cold laser and just finished 4 rounds of radio therapy (they use the machine that breaks up kidney stones to break up the scar tissue to ad in healing) and 3 rounds of IMS. I found the IMS and the radio therapies to help for the contracted muscle issues but I am not having success with regards to the tennis/golfer's elbow.
Avatar f tn I get throbbing pain on the side of my jaw and muscles spasms and knots in my jaw muscles. Sometimes when I eat my jaw will lock and hurt like hell. I know its a pain in the but. I hope everything goes good with you! My my mother is a Dental Assistant and has worked with Regular Denists, Endodonic Specialists in Surgery, Oral Surgery and, Maxiofacial Prostdodonist for almost 40 years. She told me shes would definatly recommend you to see a Maxiofacial Prostdodonist.
Avatar n tn Have they checked for MS, your TSH (thyroid level), Vit D, parathyroid (which can cause kidney stones), and lymes disease. I agree with Joni, it would be a good idea for them to check your ANA. But as far as I know, lupus can not cause kidney stones. But again, there could be more than one thing going on here. Here are a few conditions and their symptoms. Hopefully they will help you narrow down your search.
Avatar n tn Eventually had worse pain and had an open removal of galbladder( not recommended!), no stones but very immflammed. I still had pain and tests showed I had a narrowed bile duct.I had an ercp with many complications, it always happens to nurses!!I had further troubles with narrowing of the bile duct and had stents for 12 mnths. Even though blood tests ok the dr decided to operate and remove the scarred part of the bile duct and found chronic pancretitis.
Avatar f tn During my first visit, my acupuncturist said that although my main problem is definitely kidney and endocrine-related, the stomach and gall bladder also need to be treated (as do my allergies). Since beginning treatment, I've noticed a definite improvement in my mood and energy levels, but I still have considerable pain that radiates from below my ribs on the right side up beside my right shoulderblade, right side of my neck, and right jaw.
Avatar n tn I have been having a sharp burning pain in my upper back mostly on the left side by the shoulder blade. At times my neck and left arm are effected too. The pain is present upon rising and lasts throughout the day. I am concous of my posture and do not believe it to be the cause. The pain worsens if i am carring anything at arms lengths or even if i am carring a light bag over either of my shoulders.
211940 tn?1267884866 However, he said it could NOT be causing me so much pain. He checked out my arm and noticed a hard soft tissue knot, and suggested removing it through surgery and it "might" relieve my pain. So, 3 weeks ago I had the said surgery and it was removed (a hard soft tissue mass about the size of a marble). No, this was not the cyst inside my humerus bone. Anyways, I still have the pain, and it is extremely terrible at night (on a scale of 1 to 10, a 20 at night).
Avatar n tn I thought it was over because of back exercises I have been doing, but this afternoon it happened again - and it was awful. I had my babies without pain medication - and this is much worse! It only last 5 minutes or so, but all I can do is hold on to the furniture and scream. So - I was wondering whether you have found out anything in the 2 years since the posting. Of course, information from anyone else would be welcome, too!
Avatar f tn Urine from the kidney leads to the bladder via the ureter. Conditions affecting the kidney and/or ureter that may result in left side abdominal pain include : Pyelonephritis – infection of the kidney Glomerulonephritis (kidney inflammation), kidney cyst or tumor Urinary stones LEFT ADRENAL GLAND The adrenal gland, also known as the suprarenal gland, is located on the top of the kidney.
Avatar n tn I am 24 and had a headache for almost 4 weeks now, I have swollen glands especially on one side and have had chest pains for probably 5 weeks that arent severe but noticable, I have had severe dizzy spells, I also have kidney stones! And polysystic kidney disease. I have been diagnosed with Epstein Barr about 5 years ago. The aching glands and constant headache are very concerning for me at the moment as I don't get headaches often!
209384 tn?1231171906 I take calcium most of the time, but have had a couple of kidney stones and am not real crazy about taking it in big doses. They don't even hurt until this falls off and then OW! Am getting ready to take a pain pill and go to bed.
5952632 tn?1377270669 So far I know that stress is a huge one, but between three kids at 5 and under, work, helping my wife through kidney stones and all of my issues, stress is an everyday norm. I have been able to get more in tune with my brain so I can feel when the blackouts are coming. Sometimes if j can do what I call my speed meditation, I can get myself to slowly back down from blacking out, but the ones lately have been a big stronger than before with more pressure than normal.
