kidney-stones

Avatar f tn It comes in waves and was so severe it brought tears to my eyes. I have had kidney pain from infection in the past and while different I think this pain may be kidney related too. I am trying to find some way to get comfortable enough to sleep since it is the middle of the night and I don't want to wake two sleeping babies and drag them to the ER. I tried calling the nurse helpline provided by my insurance company, but he just told me to try a heating pad and some Tylenol.
Avatar m tn I had a CT scan in October (which detected kidney stones) I have had two u/s - one in April and one in July to check for stones. (Stones were the only thing seen). I have had two flat panel x-rays (June/July) prior to each lithotripsy to locate stones. (Stones were the only thing seen). All other tests from my physical are normal. I have an appointment with my PCP next week. I am going to mention endometriosis.
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!
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 f tn I was told there was a lil calsification in it as well but probably wasnt a stone well low and behold 3 weeks ago 1 am i am in so much pain i can barely breathe yet again i take a trip to the hospital and end up going for a ct to find out in my right kidney i have a 8 by 10 mm stone a 5 by 6 mm stone and four 1 mm stones and i also have a 2cm stone in my left kidney..
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 f tn hi my friend has kidney stones and is 9 weeks pregnant she is in a lot of pain and has been bleeding is this a sign that she will lose her baby.
Avatar m tn I have had similar experiences with burning in my penis in the past related to sex (never with happy endings). Seems like it could be anxiety but don't really think so. I also have had kidney stones and prostatitis in the past (but not recently). My questions are: 1. Could this be HSV (either oral or genital) or any other STD?
Avatar m tn Oh try looking into kidney stones and diet.. In case you are prone to them it's worth drinking plenty of water and reduce salt almost to nothing.
Avatar f tn It so does cause pain, usually from kidney infections, uti and bladder, then of course the dreaded yeast infection. Stones if they are big will ballon the kidney and have 'rough' travel down wards. Have they treated for infections and did they clear up? have you been getting follow ultra sounds at all? heating pads are the best if that helps.
Avatar n tn It is possible to be born with a kidney that is out of position(malrotated) that does not drain properly (hydronephrosis), and that the stasis of urine can cause stone formation and resulting hematuria (blood in the urine). However, kidney stones, hydronephrosis, and microscopic hematuria are not uncommon even in the absence of microhematuria. In regards to the microhematuria we agree with the IVP and cystoscopy, but would also suggest a urine cytology to look for cancer cells.
Avatar f tn It is good that the ultrasound and cytoscopy were normal and you are scheduled to see the gynecologist and urologist. Kidney pain may be caused by kidney issues, musculoskeletal conditions and even from referred pain. You may also benefit from a referral to a renal doctor. Additional diagnostic tests may need to be done to determine the underlying cause. Take care and do keep us posted.
1474625 tn?1371100679 I write here sadly knowing my story is the same overused plot with a different name. My story probably started the same way most everyone's story has: prescription painkillers, surgeries, ignorance to a drug so demonic, etc. My 8 year battle and abusive relationship with painkillers has been a long one. My drug of choice is Tramadol. This is my story. I am 23 years old and I am addicted to opiates of you name it.
Avatar n tn 2.) Do the neg. urinalysises rule out kidney infections/stones and UTI? Pain is not sharp and I do not really have urination problems of any kind. Thanks for the help!!
Avatar n tn I had an ultrasound on October 3ed. They were looking for gallstones, kidney stones and epididymitis as possible causes for the pain I have been having. The lady who was doing the ultrasound went two far to one side by mistake and found that I have a rather large hernia. She went and got the Doctor on duty to have a look and he told me it was quit a large and serious one on the left side of my groin.
Avatar n tn I don't have kidney stones or hypercalciuria, only upepr-limit or slightly elevated ionized Ca and elevated PTH.
Avatar f tn Then Shortly after I had to cysts pop up on right ovary and a few on my kidneys. Then a month later kidney stones. I seen specialist after specialist. Finally a OBGN decided to operate, she found massive amounts of scar tissue from my appendix erupting when I was two. During the surgery my bowel was cut and I was hospiliazed for a week. Four days out of surgery my stomach opened up and I had to have a nurse come into my home daily to check my vitals and pack it.
Avatar f tn Like your OB said (and I mentioned) hydrocodone is fairly safe during pregnancy and now that he knows your concerns he will help you manage the pain AND feel comfortable with your decision. I had kidney stones when I was pregnant with my daughter and had to take strong pain meds several times, and the guilt tore me up. she was born incredibly healthy, very alert, with no medical problems...she's only been sick like once in her life, lol (knock on wood).
Avatar f tn Is it a pain that leaves you tossing side to side sharp pains? And any blood? I ended up being told I was passing kidney stones.

Avatar f tn Back when my pain was consistently on my left over the course of a year and a half I had three CT scans done. It was determined that I had kidney stones in my left kidney and that my pain was being caused when I was passing them, outside of that no abnormalities were found in my scans. I have seen two urologists since the discovery of these stones and was dismissed by both. They claimed my symptoms are not consistent with kidney stone pain.
Avatar f tn He sent me for ultrasound and tests came back good. But then he sent me for a cat scan and found unrelated kidney stones. I passed them and these symptoms continued. It is now to the point that I wake up every morning, same time, have a large bowel movement, sometimes it feels like I might not even make it to the restroom, the stool is usually very loose, sometimes there's mucus, sometimes it's greasy. Along with waking up feeling like I need to go...
Avatar m tn I had a massage last week and you could hear liquid draining during the massage when he pressed under my ribs and it does feel better afterwards (and then a few days feels worse again). I am off to see my GP later today but can you advise anything or potentially what it might be?
Avatar n tn I live in Austin and don't know any docs in Tuscon. Also, I joined Massage Envy or Massage Heights and get a low monthly rate and get massages once to twice a month, prenatal massage. They help out a lot too...

1583226 tn?1297770275 From my knowledge its probably kidney stones because I'm clear of stds. But if some one sufferes from painful urination that has nothing to do with hiv does it? That isn't one of the symptoms is it?
2126606 tn?1346348724 We begin treatment with non narcotics and provide yoga, acupunture, massage and other forms on therapies that can help with prescription abstinance and pain control.
Avatar n tn Some patients with chronic joint and muscle pain related to their thyroid conditions have had success with therapies such as massage, acupuncture, and myofascial therapy. In terms of supplements, researchers have found that glucosamine and chondroitin "may have some efficacy against the symptoms of osteoarthritis. Muscle cramps are very common with low thyroid levels. Of course we can get them with low potassium levels also. Adding more potassium to your diet might help.
Avatar m tn Not sure if you received any medical help but you may want to try to get a KUB or CT scan. You seem to have symptoms of kidney stones. The ct scan my shed some light on tumors, cancer, stones, or any other problems. Hope this helps.
