Kidney stones and low grade fever

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones and low grade fever


Avatar n tn i have a low grade fever after just having kidney stone surgery what should i take
Avatar f tn I'm a 20 year old female & I've been dealing with a chronic low grade fever for over a year now. It comes and goes, usually around 99.3-100, though in a great while it gets higher and I'm tired all the time. Last year I was dealing with (what I though to be) sinusitis. I was having burning headaches, low grade fever, fatigue, congestion, weird smells, & pain behind my left eye. Blood tests showed my white blood cell count was elevated.
Avatar f tn My doctor had me come in for another CT scan which showed that the stones were still to big to pass through an area in the ureter. I was also running a low grade fever and signs of an infection. I am on antibiotics and pain meds. The doctor inserted a stent on Friday. I was told to expect light bleeding and a little discomfort and stinging. Which i do. But, I am not able to distinguish the difference in the discomfort of urinating and hard to urinate.
Avatar n tn I was able to pull the stents myself without any trouble 4 days post op. Off narcotics for the first time today. Still running a very low grade fever but pain is greatly reduced. Hope everyone else is feeling well.
Avatar n tn the corresponding figure in children is unknown. Among patients with kidney stones, hypercalciuria may occur in 40-50%, and recurrent gross hematuria may occur in 10-20%. Although no evidence indicates that risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs) is higher in patients with medullary sponge kidney, up to 5% of males and 35% of females have a UTI.
Avatar f tn , the stones in my stones are not in the position to be causing any pain, but I can't deny the fact that I have this pain that comes and goes. I've been told that dull pain is not associated with kidney stones, but I DO have stones and 2 of these "dull sickening" pain episodes resulted in stones, so I'm not making this up. I'm just frustrated with this whole thing and not knowing why I have stones, how to prevent them, or what I can do to keep this pain totally away.
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 m tn Could this be kidney stones? Something else please help oh and 4 month post partum..struggling with the kids..
583644 tn?1221449146 I also run a low grade fever the day after drinking alcohol and I have severe pain in my sides and back. Any ideas on what I may be going through? I am emotionally exhausted trying to figure out what is wrong with me. Sometimes I feel like the doctors think I am crazy because none of them can figure out what is wrong. I feel like I am not being heard or taken seriously and I am becoming depressed with all of this. Any advice would mean a great deal to me. Thank you.
231903 tn?1281486184 When i am on my left side the pain will extent to my left lower and upper back as well and i will get random pain or a burning sensation that lasts quite awhile right under my left lower rib in the front. Along with that ive had an off and on low grade fever (98.9 to 99.2) if anyone has any suggestions that would be great! Some Background Info that may or may not be relevant to my symptoms above: In the past, i have had three kidney stones, this does not feel like one though?
440193 tn?1293814117 End of story, I wish, I had such pain and projectial vomiting , low grade fever that would come and go,flank pain ,and consitipation, just like before,I once again ended up back in the hospital , after a day and a half of anti- nausea I V's and a mophine pump for pain they reinserted a new stent,to my horror I was awake for this procedure, but I was surprized to find that it wasn't as painful as the removal process.
Avatar m tn Because of this, I saw the doc for a possible UTI and he put me on Bactrim just in case while my urine was sent off to the lab and then they did a bladder and renal ultrasound to check for kidney stones or signs of infection. No UTI, and no stones. During the treatment with Bactrim, I started having paresthesias that came in patches all over my body, but mostly in the feet and legs, then arm, hands and shoulders. The fever never went away, nor did the urinary frequency.

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 Hello, There can be many reasons for this back pain. It can e due to kidney infections or kidney stones, ureteric stones, pelvic inflammatory disease or gynecological causes like endometriosis or ovarian cysts. Very rarely nerve compression of the spinal nerves due to spinal problems like stenosis or herniattion may cause such problems.
Avatar n tn However, after a week of constant dull (sometimes sharper) pain in my left side that made me feel constantly nauseous, I went to the clinic where I found out I had another infection (with a low-grade fever) and likely another stone. I passed 2 stones a day later (last Saturday); they were a lot smaller than my other one (only 1.5 and 2mm). However, unlike when I passed my first stone in Feb, the pain I felt in my kidney did not immediately go away.
Avatar n tn I simply can't go on for much longer feeling this extreme weakness and cloudy head, feeling rotten, etc. I continue to have a low grade fever, but my labs came back after the antibiotics clean. I do have similar symptoms when I get bad sinus infections, but that's clearly not the case now. Thanks!
535089 tn?1400677119 Having problems with urination can be from urinary tract infections and kidney stones. When there is a kidney stone you will not know that you have one at all. But when it starts to move, it causes a lot of problems, not only severe pain, but water work infections. Fluid retention can be from kidney or heart problems as well as from premenstrual tension. As you had been catheterized, I presume that you did have a urinary problem of some sort because of you not being able to urinate.
Avatar f tn I also have the feeling like I am running a fever, along w/ the aches and headache that accompany a fever. Sometimes I actually am running a low grade. If you temp seems to run low to begin with, then you could actually be running a temp.
Avatar n tn Infection leading to a fever can cause the feeling of chills. If there is a persistant low grade fever, you can consider further testing to look for a source of infection. This can include blood cultures in addition to the tests you have received. If infection has been ruled out, you can look for some metabolic diseases that may lead to the symptoms. Specifically problems with the thyroid can cause the feeling of chills (i.e. cold intolerance).
Avatar f tn I did throw up now and than and have a low grade fever very low and I guess now that you say it I was very tired... extremely. You really don't want to have a kidney removed this is not the answer.
440193 tn?1293814117 T scan,where after years of the Chills,cold hands and feet,night time hiccups,low grade fever, to low base fever, hair loss, itchyness all over,contant bladder infections kidney infections, swelling of my face and feet, headaches, ect..and it turns out that my left kidney was filled with stones.THANK GOD !!! Finally I found out what has been going on BUT!!!
633143 tn?1262137135 I was nervous because my father has a history of kidney stones, I'm 24, and I'm on a medication (Topomax) that makes me likely to get them. However I did not have any blood in my urine, my back was not tender to touch, there was no pain urinating, and the pain was not getting any worse. The day after the pain started, it began spreading into my buttox and down my whole right leg. I was walking through the grocery store and there were times it felt like I had to drag my leg.
1832268 tn?1326819610 We brought him home and did twice daily under skin fluids plus standard recommended meds and kidney diet. We then took him to a kidney specialist who was trying to determine at what stage of Kidney disease he was at. Got his levels down a little more a week little later, things were looking promising and his energy levels were increasing dramatically. Less than a week later, he completely stopped eating. Took him to specialist after 2 days of not eating.
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 n tn Smoking certainly increases the risk of pancretic cancer, but there are more likely possibilities. Yes, gallstones and kidney stones are also possible. Given your description, I would suggest a right upper quadrant ultrasound to start, along with liver function tests. This is a pretty good workup for most gallbladder and liver diseases. If negative, a spiral CT scan without contrast can be considered to evaluate for kidney disease.
Avatar n tn My daughter seems to get her fevers on a friday when no one is in the office then by monday shes always better except for the swollen glands in her neck and white spots on her throat, and low grade fever. Then I dont take her in because i know they will check her for strep throat, which she never has.She also has been on alot of antibiotics which never help. Except when she had the Staph in her sinuses a few months back.
Avatar m tn This sounds quite familiar, on and off my joints are very painful and about the same time I retain water, have to urinate frequently, it becomes cloudy, I have flank pain (along my sides where the kidneys are located--a clenching feeling), my low low back hurts and I have that rotten metallic oily taste in my mouth. I feel generally ill with a low grade fever and chills and my muscles ache.
Avatar f tn Then 3 weeks later high fever comes back and then the Kidney infection will show. Right now we are on day 8 of antibotics and still running a low grade fever. I carried her back to the Dr urine test was negative white blood count was 15,000 . Is there some other test that cam be done to find out what is wrong. We oallow the same pattern every time. The highest her fever has gotten was 106. No other symptons just fever and lower pain. But a kidney scan showed no stones or blockages.
