Kidney stones and muscle spasms

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones and muscle spasms


Avatar f tn I'm having a hard time controlling the muscle spasms that are in my back. I'm taking Tylenol and onycodone since yesterday. I'm only comfortable taking the full prescription. I'd like to get off the medicine adap because of the baby. Has anyone found comfort besides heating pad-warm bathes and medicine?
Avatar f tn In the last few months, I've been getting random muscle spasms(mostly at night) and a lot more pain in my feet and lower legs. Almost feels like muscle cramping in my calf. But also, for the last 6 weeks, I have had vertigo steady. Worse at night when rolling in bed but have had to leave work(unable to drive) and have almost fell down at home. Feel at a loss..... But back to the doctor I will go.. Anyone else ever been told it was Lupus, It's not Lupus?
Avatar f tn I'm so sorry that he is having this much discomfort form his Post-op Kidney Stones. I've never had Kidney Stones. However, if they made an incision of any kind, chances are that he isn't supposed to be in a bath tub. Usually they aren't allowed to get that area wet. PLEASE don't laugh TOO loudly at me IF there is no incision as I must emphasize that I DON'T havae a clue as to how they are removed.
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 n tn I am doing a Pilates workout, about an hour and 15 minutes, and I have been having these muscle spasms, and they sometimes start in my upper abs, under my right breast, but radiate out to my arms and legs and I have to sit down, I feel faint. I have fibromyalgia, and it started with a back injury with 2 herniated discs and 3 bulging discs and I have degenerative discs in my neck, with arthritis. I believe there is arthritis in the spinal injury (base of my spine).
Avatar f tn Finally my dad rushed me to the ER where I spent 8 hours, they gave me an IV with tramadol and gravol. I had an ultrasound where ultimately they saw my left kidney was enlarged and my left ureter seemed to be blocked as no urine was visualize escaping from it. However they weren't able to see any stones. Ultimately they sent me home with morphine pills and a strainer to pee in and told me if the pain doesn't improve or worsens in a week, come back.
Avatar n tn Kidney stones? Frequent urination? Constipation? (Okay, that was a yes) Muscle and joint aches/pain? Depression? Fatigue? Menses problems (heavy flow, excessive cramps, irregular, hot flashes)? Frequent headaches? heartburn? Faster than normal heartbeat at rest? If so, check out thyroid and parathyroid disease. How about any spinal nerve issues (low back) or symptoms of multiple sclerosis? (Sciatic nerve irritation, cauda equina, recent trauma to tailbone or cervix).
Avatar f tn Kidney stone pain is often associated with low back pain and abdominal pain. Kidney stones, especially those in the left kidney, can also cause significant amounts of nausea and even vomiting. As the stone moves further down the ureter toward the bladder, the pain often radiates in the groin and genital areas. In men, the pain may radiate to the scrotum. In women, the pain may radiate to the labia or even the vagina.
Avatar f tn Yet, say I spent an entire weekend sleeping little and giving the house a more than usually vigorous cleaning, I would afterward experience extremely painful muscle spasms, and I would have many deep, dark bruises in many areas of my body. I would assume they were from bumping into things, from carrying large loads of household items, etc.
Avatar n tn But I had a similar attack on the right side about nine days ago, and I let it go for a few days. I could feel the muscle spasms going under my right arm, under and into the breast. Went to a different massage therapist who really presssed too hard and the pain got worse. I had breast cancer seven years ago, so immediately called my oncologist, had a cat scan of the chest. Nothing.
4525198 tn?1425523277 I have had issues and went to the ER with what I thought was stones of some sort as well....many muscle spasms too.... Did you not have EDS ruled out b4 surgery?
Avatar n tn A subsequent CT scan revealed I had 2 additionall ( 2mm non-obstructing) stones in my right kidney and a cluster of at least (four 2-3 mm stones in my left kidney). They were also non-obstructive. I've been told by a couple of doctors and urologists that they cannot be the cause of my pain, even though the pain feels just like when I had obsturctive ones. I can also feel the damn things moving around and it causes me to have kidney spasms.
Avatar n tn Nurse talked to me about the symptoms and said it might just be muscle/ligament pain or kidney stones. She told me to take Tylenol and they would check me out at my next appointment, next TUESDAY morning. (they did offer an emergency spot for me today/thursday but it was during class that I couldn't miss even though it meant that I was sitting there in tears during the test). She told me if it got too bad to go back to the ER. Anyways. tylenol isn't touching the pain.
Avatar f tn Stories like this make me so mad!! As for what can help you, I dont know..ive never had kidney stones but my mom and brother have and nothing helped them when they were in the worst of it either. The only thing i can suggest to you is this... can you get them removed /crushed via ultrasonic waves? I think they call it lithotripsy (sp?). THats what my mom had done..she sat in a hottub and ultrasonic waves thru the water shattered her stones.
188306 tn?1274136222 i think the pain is too high up to be gall stones and also it can happen on both sides
Avatar m tn Is it common for a patient to have back spasms when they have a kidney stone? The doctor said he felt and saw the back spasms. Could it have been kidney spasms if there is such a thing?
Avatar n tn I was recently diagnosed with Hashi's and am having a lot of anxiety. I too have a lot of muscle spasms in my calfs, hands, arms and back, very annoying and of course, worrisome. Did anyone with Hashi's experience rash activity? I recently developed a rash on my back and torso-not a bad one-it is called pyritis rosea (that's what the doc said). I've only been on Synthroid for 1 month.
4943237 tn?1428994695 When i went to doc and thought I had a UTI but the test came back negative so she sent me for xrays and that showed the stones. She sent me home and said drink lots of water and use a heating pad and pain reliever and wait for it to pass. She said if the pain got too unbearable to go to the emergency room. I ended up passing it but haven't had the symptoms again. I'm hoping I pass the others with no issues. Big HUGS your way.
1501377 tn?1291512278 usually we would not suggest any supplements or vitamins to someone at your stage since we are not doctors so ask the doctor first - these seem harmless enough but I dont know your medical history and who knows you could have had kidney stones or something in your past that I'm not aware please ask him first.
Avatar f tn I would experience frequent muscle cramps and spasms in my side, abdomen, and lower back. The pain and spasms are generally triggered by movement. After a year and a half of dealing with this pain on my left side, the same symptoms began happening on the right side of my body while completely disappearing from my left. Since then, my pain has alternated between left and right. The pain is absolutely unbearable.
Avatar f tn I'm seeing doctors constantly but still nothing. I also have heart spasms along with the other muscle spasms/twitches, chest pain and a burning knot on the side of my head that brings on major disorientation. It's a lot of fun. Good luck to your husband. Let me know if you come up with anything.
Avatar n tn google diagnosis -- this saved my life! I looked up symptoms of kidney infections, kidney stones, kidney disease -- none of these seemed to match. It was THIS "blog" web-post from 2009 that alerted me to the possibility of pulmonary embolism. -- ME? No, I'm too young for that diagnosis... I'm 31 and in primarily good health!
Avatar f tn I'm a 17 yr old female and I'm tired of doc after doc telling me I'm having muscle spasms (the obvious) then giving me muscle relaxers. I'd much rather find the cause. Has anyone else experienced anything else like this? Or have any idea what could be causing all this? I've never had any injuries that could do anything like this. It seems like it'll never stop and my mom even told me I might just have to live with it. But I don't want to live with random pain.
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.

2085202 tn?1373203340 He is wanting to write this off as anxiety and muscle spasms. Here's the thing ;I am losing tons of weight. The pain happens at night and am waking up to the pain making this a hard pill to swallow as just anxiety. I have been near tears with how persistent this has become. He has run bloodwork on the liver and other things including the white blood cell count and everything has turned out to be ok.
1549643 tn?1495762953 Does anyone know how long renal pain lingers on for if you had an infection in them. I'm thinking maybe the spasms just made the muscle area sore. Doing much better yet they still hurt under my ribs.
Avatar n tn I have been having blurred vision, dizziness, pressure and fullness in ears and head and behind eyes, muscle weakness, joint pain, crick in neck, and severe fatigue for over a year now. Oh! also heart pounding and times where I can hear it in my head and feel it. Also deep itching sensations in my muscles that of course you can't scratch like pins and needles. Been to ENT nothing wrong with ears, been to primary doctor MRI normal. Switched Doctors because primary basically laughed at me.
Avatar n tn I have also in the last week felt hot flashes on my back and neck. Had muscle spasms in my lower right front side. It seems to getting more frequent and usually stops when I get up and start walking.
Avatar n tn all make me have spasms. I had IC for Years and never knew that's what was wrong with me. I just thought I had a bad back. I never had the urgency, frequency,etc until I had a hyster back last Sept. I got a uti from the cathter, but after the infection was gone, I still had the symptoms....just no infection. My ob/gyn sent me to a Uro and he found my problem. He's such a good doctor, I just love him to death! Now don't forget about the Primeal Defense for the C-dif.
