Kidney stones and night sweats

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones and night sweats


Avatar n tn Called an ambulance, said it sounded like kidney stones. Took an ambulance, plane and another ambulance to a hospital in the city-I live in the jungle in Costa Rica. The x-rays and ultrasound show a kidney stone. On the other side it also shows some white spots that may be calcium or other small stones. The doctor said the diarreah was unrelated. I stayed in the hospital overnight-no diarreah. Came home yeaterday and last night severe diarreah all night again.
Avatar f tn Almost a week later my symptoms became more severe. The pain was more in my back than my side, I developed nausea and hot sweats (no fever). There was still blood in my urine but no signs of an infection. My PCP felt it was kidney stones and prescribed me flomax to help pass it. Days later no change. They did a CT scan, but it showed no stones. I still have blood in my urine so they suggested I see a Urologist. Feeling frustrated I have not made an appointment yet.
Avatar m tn Hello, i am a 20 year old student and recently found that i have two kidney stones. I believe they have both moved from my kidney to my bladder and was wondering how long it takes to pass them through my urine once they are already in my bladder. These stones are 1mm and 2mm and also i was wondering to what extent the pain is going to be when i pass them?

Avatar n tn In addition, I have EXTREME fatigue, I feel overly full all the time, have been experiencing night sweats, have a bit of brain fog and have swollen lymph nodes in neck and very itchy,dry legs (my bun was 6 by the way). White blood count was around 11 or so. Family history includes my grandmother who ultimately died of ovarian cancer at age 82 and my younger brother who developed Hodgkin's at 23 and is in remission. Concerned. Seem to having some cancer symptoms.
Avatar n tn I am not sure why I sweat so much there are no oter issues. I mean I have some kidney issues ( stones and blockage ) I am not sure if they are related. My sweat problem is out of controle, I am not sure what to do because I can not get back t sleep until I change the sheets and then it will happen again after I go back to sleep for a little while. I am also having some crazy dreams, that mostly do not make sense. Help me please or my girl will make me sleep in the other room.
Avatar n tn php Other causes of blood in the urine include kidney infections, kidney stones, and bladder cancer. Has he had any blood tests done? If yes, was there any other sign, such as anemia or elevated ESR? If his renal function is failing you need to take him to a center where he can receive the attention of a nephrologist and an oncologist, if it turns out to be cancer ( and I'm sorry to say it seems that way). Do write in with any doubts you have.

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 n tn Recurrent pain in the flank region after getting treated for urinary tract infections could be due a strong organism causing the infection, decreased immunity inthe patient, any abnormality in the anatomy of the urinary tract, stones in the kidney or ureter, incomplete recovery from previous infection. Did you ever experience these symptoms before? What was the organism which caused the infection? Do you have fever, night sweats, blood in urine, burning sensation?

Avatar n tn 15 yrs. Been thru several gynecologists and med doctors. I am losing hope and need to put and end to this embaressing plaque. Can anyone in the medical profession help me?
Avatar m tn Hi, this is actually PepperJeff responding to my own thread. I can't remember my password for PepperJeff, so am using an old login Anyway. I had shockwave lithotripsy a month ago. Seems that blocked stone had gone fully blocked and I developed hydronephrosis (enlarged kidney) sometime from January to the end of April when they did a followup. Don't know how long it lasted or if there is permanent damage.
Avatar m tn I was waking up in the middle of the night with night sweats, confusion, and high blood pressure. I went to the doctor and and he thought it might be anxiety. So he put me on clonazepam as needed. I spent the next couple of months having those attacks less frequent with a healthy diet and proper exercise of running. One month ago I had severe pain radiating from my kidneys. I have had kidney stones and cysts in the past so I immediately went to a high water/cranberry juice intake.
Avatar m tn If it is another kidney stone I'm not sure why my symptoms are so different, I've never experienced fever, chills, night sweats, fatigue, loss of appetite with my other two run-ins with kidney stones. If someone out there has any ideas on what it could be or had any similiar experiences it'd be greatly appreciated if you could share. I'll update after I hear back about my blood test tomorrow and after I see my Urologist. Thanks.
Avatar n tn During the ultrasound evidence of the development of kidney stones was found and I was reffered to a urologist. That night at home I was carrying a salad to the fridge for dressing and suddenly could not hold the bowl anymore...the bowl slammed to the was like I had blacked out briefly, like I stopped functioning momentarily. This afternoon I got my endoscopy results...a hurnia and small ulcers were found, and the biopsies revealed no sign of celiac.
Avatar n tn The chemical I suspect does upset a lot of our system AND it causes lymphomas like NHL and leukemias and brain tumors. Often gall stones and kidney stones from the metabolic imbalance. Do you also have fatigue? With direct exposure you get the 'flu-like' symptoms; however, you can get bits and pieces of what this chemical does if a parent was exposed to it (like a birth defect) ...
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..
667261 tn?1225477453 During this time I was also having chronic kidney stones, about 4-5 a year, and with those I found the wonderful drug hydrocodone. It was like magic. It relieved my RLS, didn't make me tired and I felt great. I finally convinced my doctor to prescribe hydrocodone for my RLS, but he only wanted to have me take them at night. 2 each 7.5/325. The only problem was my RLS during the day, which was bad enough for me to take extra every day.
691983 tn?1266808432 My Doctor and I believe because I had all the stones before the surgery that the bacteria went and set up a biofilm within those stones. I did not have the chronic kidney pain at all till after the surgery. I had mild IC symptoms but nothing like I deal with now either. If we do not hear back about the theory... I hope someone will personally pm Platelet Gal I know unless I check the add to watch list box in a thread I often miss out on the new comments!
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.
178345 tn?1242539846 I have not gained weight, but actually lost some weight due to the extra energy (I am very tall and everyone in my family is overweight). I have only had maybe 5 episodes of hot flushes and/or night sweats and laughed whenever I did have one. It was only a matter of taking off a layer of clothes and turning a fan on to cool off. My mother-in-law had to have her gallbladder removed several years after she had a hyster.
Avatar n tn THEY NEVER CHECKED MY PTH until I went in and ask for it! I had kept a waking temprature log every day for a week, while having night sweats and hot flashes often, even then when I felt most hot, my body temp was only 96, sometimes waking temps were 95.7. This was the proof I needed to suggest thyroid problems, and I finally got them to run them. Now I am pissed they didnt think of it ealier, I have lost everything; job, home, credit, all ****.
714049 tn?1232644694 I have been complaining of weakness (legs and arms), headaches, dizziness, fatigue, night sweats, stomach pains, kidney pains (also kidney stones), red blotches on face (periodically) for the past 5 yrs and progressively feeling worse. I move often, and have to see new Dr's. They always start the process of trying to figure out what could be causing my symptoms, but after a few visits and blood test, I get the same diagnosis "depression".
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with Hyperparathyroidism which was originally diagnosed due to my body creating large amounts of kidney stones for 7 years. I since no longer have kidney stones, but have had a time, trying to level out my synthroid levels. I continue to go to the doctors and have lab requisitions for my TSH levels and occasionally PTH. my current requisition is also checking my ft4, but don't see anything listed for ft3?
Avatar f tn My symptoms are severe anxiety and panic attacks,derealization,brain fog,cold sweats,sweaty palms,eye floaters,muscle tightness and cramping,popping joints and sometimes obssessive scary thoughts.
Avatar f tn I have taken pain meds many times in the past ( I have a very messed up knee, occasional back problems, have had lots of dental work, am prone to both kidney stones and ear infections-also had lots of gynocological issues but those are resolved). And all those times I never ended up in this shape. I'm the first to admit I DO NOT handle pain well at all. Bc of some of my issues I can't imagine a future where I don't need something at some point or other.
2217169 tn?1371487322 I too have been hiding my addiction, and although I didn't come 100% clean with it, I did tell my girlfriend (whom I live with). I am in the position of having kidney pains and stones chronically for the past ten years, so I've been on opiates for some time.
Avatar n tn I am a pharmacist and can tell you that Vicodin is safe in pregnancy, but moderation is the key! Only take if absolutely necesary (and I know that kidney stones are painful). I have known many pregnant women who have taken Vicodin with no adverse effects on the fetus.
