Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones and neuropathy

kidney-stones

Avatar f tn The answer is yes at least to the bone pain. The three things that hyperparathyroidism is known for can be summed up as "Bones and Stones and Psychic Groans". Bone pain can be severe. Calcium-containing kidney stones can form. There can be changes in personality. Oops, I see this is an old post and you have been diagnosed with MS. MS does not cause hyperparathyroidism, so I hope you are seeing a good endocrinologist.
Avatar f tn (inability to concentrate), chronic fatigue, depression, constipation, hormonal imbalances, low thyroid levels, low blood sugars, undefined gut pain, kidney and gall stones, and frequent urination. Do not confuse it with thyroid disease -they are entirely two different sets of glands. I was diagnosed with hyperparathyroidism prior to the hep C and have always wondered if my body's fighting the Hep C didn't cause the tumor on one of the glands to grow (Not cancerous). Something to think about..
Avatar f tn I further explained the pain was more severe and more intense then the pain I experienced from kidney stones, The testing began. After 4 MRIs, 2 CAT scans, a pet scan a ultrasound test of my gall bladder, an ultrasound test of my kidneys, and ultrasound test of my liver, the doctors were perplexed. No health problems existed, yet I was in sere pain. After 9 days I was released from the hospital, with an unknown cause of my pain. On the next day, a friend who is a physical telephoned me.
Avatar f tn I mentioned I have a history of kidney issues and that was dismissed. I have been having some pain off and on under my ribcage and in my back, but nothing excruciating. My questions are: for those of you with multiple stones in your kidneys, were they normally removed or were they left alone? mine are calcium oxolate stones. Also, do you think I should make an appointment with a nephrologist? I have no idea what is causing my problems, obviously, but am concerned about the kidney issue.
Avatar n tn Before mono I had kidney stones twice at age 18 and 20..none since. I have chronic constipation and go to the bathroom about 1 time a week. The more constipated I am the worse my bladder symptoms are as well. I have been to a neurologist who ruled out ms. I have been to physical therapy twice, which helped a little.....but got worse again when done. I have seen a internist who checked me for diabeties insipidus which I did not have.
Avatar n tn BTW, I am a 58 year old male who has had 2 Cataracts, an aeortic Aneurism w/ Valve replacement, 2 knee replacements, kidney stones which clogged the kidney and caused a MRSA blood infection, and shoulder surgery all in the last 5 years. Fun, huh??? Thanx again!!!
Avatar f tn The urine was stuck and backing up into my kidney (hydronephrosis). I got a kidney infection and went septic and almost died. After two surgeries and a stent on both occasions, I had a Chronic Pain doctor talk me out of taking Elavil, because it lowers my blood pressure a lot. I was put on Noretryptaline instead. About 2 months later my bladder spasms came back. I was so sure that if I started Elavil again, they would go away again.
1522652 tn?1291241954 I know that there is a link beginning with my chronic uti's as a child, to my severe pms as an adolecent into adulthood, and then on to my chronic kidney stones and infections as an adult, and then the loss of my kidney, as well as the problems I'm experiencing now. My question is what specific tests do I need to request to accurately check my thyroid, parathyroid, and my calcium levels? Also, are there any specific questions that I need to ask.
Avatar m tn Most days it still feels like my kidney is still there and hurts exactly like it did when I had kidney infections or kidney stones. When I had my surgery they cut me from back ribcage to the front below my bladder so there is a lot of nerves that were severed during the surgery. Most of the time if feels like my kidney is huge and taking up too much space inside and under my ribcage, so the pain is not just right in the nerve endings.
Avatar n tn It can also predispose to kidney stones by effecting the same enzyme in the kidney as acetazolamide - therefore the two may be additive in the risk of kidney stones. Kidnet stones can be very painful and have the potential to damage the kidney. The side effects and risks need to be weighed with the benefit with your doctor. You may be ok by keeping well hydrated etc but perhaps their may be a better headache preventative than topamax if you continue to take Diamox.
Avatar n tn My ovaries have no cysts. I have a history of kidney stones, but all my stones have been passes and the renal ultrasound was normal. If you haven't guessed, I am desperate for answers. Is there any advice you can give to help me get some answers. I am worried about living on pain drugs all the time. Any help you can offer will be deeply appreciated.
Avatar f tn I hope to get some answers to why this is so painful and strange. I hope I can.

Avatar f tn I read somewhere about Kidney stones and neuropathy. I would investigate the Kidney Stone side of this further. Hope you feel better soon!
Avatar m tn I have a whithe discharge with a funny smell and i also have kidney stones but i am afraid it may be my appendics..
Avatar n tn I have heard through the grapevine that people with Diabetes develop lots of kidney stones and was told children have these sort of symptons for years until one day, the pain is extreme and it's off to surgery. I don't know how true this is and have never seen this kind of information posted anywhere. Has anyone heard of this?
Avatar m tn I have poured through my medicle records and have found something from 2004 when I had kidney stones. I had an mri done and they noted on the chart that I had a disk protrusion on the l-3 l-4 and that it was causing spinal canal stenosis. This was in my records for years but I was never told about this. I have more symtems I could write forever. my legs also fall asleep when I sit to long and so do my testicles.
Avatar f tn I have constant grinding, popping, and cracking sounds in my joints all over my body, especially in my neck, very badly in my shoulders, my back, jaw, elbows, wrists, knees and hips. It does not usually hurt but my muscles and joints hurt and seem to be tense, weak and stiff. Can anxiety cause all of these CONSTANT symptoms? This problem is effecting my life and my relationships and I just want to feel normal and like my old self again.
Avatar n tn I am addicted to pain killers due to Kidney stones. But it is not really due to kidney stones, I have been depressed for my entire life and Vicodin cured that better than Prozac. Kidney stones made the pain killers easy to get. Now I am on a taper program to get off the pills and it is miserable. I am not only depressed, but I am still in pain.
Avatar n tn Those using Topomax need to be especially mindful about drinking plenty of fluids due to increased chances of kidney stones. Stoney will likely develop if fluid intake is not maintained. Looking forward to weight loss benefit as I gained 30# over the past 4 years on anti-depressents. Has anyone used this for bipolar?
Avatar n tn I just started Topamax last week for migranes...I never knew about the hair loss and was not told about it...will def be watching out for that but my doctor did tell me to take vitamins regularly...b/c of the weightloss...so I bet that is what is doing it ... anyone on here lost hair but not weight?....im going to take my vitamins now...
Avatar f tn i have alot of anxiety and i have severe neuropathy that hurts so bad i cant sleep and spend hours and hours at night unable to sleep.. i use the picking and scraping of my scalp to ease my anxiety and distract myself from the constant burning pain i have in both of my legs..i have a history of severe sexual and physical abuse as a child/teen. ive been through alot of trauma in my life , been a self mutilator in the past and have had alot of therapy too.
Avatar f tn After 2 operations this was corrected and I now have proper kidney function.The dizziness started about two weeks before my kidney problems and is still a problem.Due to not having insurance and a large medical bill I am not able to have a series of test to find the problem .Any suggestions would be very helpful. Thank you very much.
798555 tn?1292791151 I also started at my Uro's direction taking Magnesium and Vit B6 and a diuretic for my kidney stones. So, not sure if that's helping the pain or just being off that darn Cipro and being on Doxy for the newly dx'd Lyme. PS: I've had the kidney stone issues since 2005 and been on/off Cipro & even Levaquin for many years.
Avatar n tn Have had X-rays, CT Scans, Sonogram and MRI. Kidney Stones have been ruled out. Had pnenumonia but referred pain was also ruled out. No other positive diagnosis has been found. I am a type 2 diabetic and am currently on Lyreca to treat neuropathy, but with no relief. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn I am sorry to hear about your medical problems. The pain can be due to appendicitis, kidney stones, colitis, pinched nerves or due to peripheral neuropathy of diabetes or hypothyroidism or lupus. Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please consult your doctor regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar n tn In the past five years, I've experienced many ups and downs with heart problems, leg cramps and now kidney stones. I just posted a question about my left arm burning with swelling from the wrist and thumb. I placed a couple of ice cubes in a bag within a napkin to alleviate the swelling and burning; it just turned red and the tightness seem to be worse. I am also experiencing severe leg pains especially when I walk down the stairs or getting out of a car.
Avatar n tn Will work on staying hydrated, stretching (especially the hip and IT band areas) and abstaining from the summer drinks. I'll also see my doctor about kidney stones, Inguinal Hernias, Neuralgia and Neuropathy of lower extremities, and calcification in the epididymis. Luck all. added to "watch' list.
Avatar n tn For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
