Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones and vomiting

kidney-stones

Avatar m tn Turns out after the vomiting and discomfort that I had developed a Kidney Stone (a pain I would not wish on some of my worst enemies). I was in the ER for most of the day (and trying to rest when I wasn't) so I didn't really get to monitor most of my diabetes. What's scary is this is the third October in a row where something has affected me healthwise.
Avatar n tn Hi, Renal calculi can vary in size from as small as grains of sand to as large as a golf ball. Kidney stones typically leave the body by passage in the urine stream, and many stones are formed and passed without causing symptoms. If stones grow to sufficient size before passage—on the order of at least 2-3 millimeters—they can cause obstruction of the ureter.
Avatar f tn The pain could be new stones or due to stones passed down from the kidney. If they are radio opaque they can be picked up by X rays. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
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'm figuring that kidney stones take a while to form and that, if I have kidney stones and possibly an infection, it's likely that I had the kidney stones first and they contributed to the infection, rather that having an infection first that contributed to the kidney stones (sorry if this sounds confusing).
Avatar f tn She was very sick just over a week before she was diagnosed, and they don't know if she was sick from the kidney stones,or if she had the stomach flu,and getting dehydrated caused the kidney stones. However she never really got too "dehydrated" when she was so sick. She did vomit alot, but was still having plenty of urine. So who knows. Any experience on how long these things take to pass? Thanks again.
Avatar n tn Finally realized I had kidney stones about 2 months ago. Just want to die when that vomiting and diarrhea start! I have actually fainted twice. At least I know I'm not crazy as others have had the same symptoms!
Avatar n tn I must have been extremely small because i had no 'symptoms' etc of actually having a kidney stone, and he said he was not concerned and i would pass it. Symptoms then went away but recently i have been having urinary problems. Its doesnt happen every day, but i sometimes get a bloated feeling when i have to go, and sometimes i feel like i have to go, but i dont. Also the past two weeks i have been feeling nauseous. Not related to food etc, it just seems to come and go.
Avatar f tn I had an ultrasound, catscan and x-ray done. Also blood test and urine tests. The doctors say it may be kidney stones that they can't see, or it may be a stone that passed which caused swelling of the kidney and the ureter. Someone told me that the swelling may be caused by "parasites" ... Is this true? Please help.
Avatar n tn Gross hematuria or visible blood in the urine requires further evaluation. Kidney stones, bladder stones, a vascular injury, a structural anomaly and inflammation of the kidneys may lead to hematuria. Kidney stones when small enough may pass through without much symptoms.However, in most cases kidney stones as they pass through the ureters do present with intermittent severe pain in the flank region.This may be associated with nausea and vomiting. Do you have any of these?
Avatar f tn I got a ct scan last week, showing 3 in my left kidney and 2 in my right. i'm now passing little blood clots (no obvious blood in the urine), and what looks like tissue. could that be from the stone moving? i can't go to the hospital cause then it's a pre-existing condition and my insurance won't cover it...
Avatar f tn My kids have given me a run this week!!!! Earlier in the week, my youngest son, 11 was up visiting my brother at his summer house, a little over an hour away. He called me after 10 at night and was crying saying he wanted to come home that he wasn't feeling good. I couldn't convince him to stay. He gets anxious being away from me and tends to do this a lot with sleepovers. He really wants to have sleepovers but he's just not able. But when he came home, he wound up pretty sick ...
Avatar f tn I have had.kidney stones and vomiting from the moment I found out i was pregnant. Its excruciating pain constantly! The er Dr put me on loratabs for the pain since they can't do anything for the stone. If it safe to take thesw being pregnant?
Avatar n tn UTIs, however, can cause severe abdominal pain of a cramping sort and can be associated with fever, chills, nausea, and vomiting. As this appears to be an intermittent, recurrent problem, it will need to be investigated further to rule out any serious causes. You can have a blood test and a urinalysis done as these will provide an idea as to the type of reaction the body had and the possible cause. If the cause is infectious, it can be treated with antibiotics.
Avatar f tn Augmentin is very similar to Clavamox. Augmentin can occasionally cause stomach upsets (vomiting and diarrhea). The dose of Augmentin is all right for your dog. All of the supplements you mention are good except the vinegar. It would really be best to have a urinalysis performed though and treat under veterinary supervision.
Avatar n tn I had a confirmed UTI in mid September. 5 days ago (Sat), I began symptoms again---extreme pain while urinating & difficulty emptying my bladder. Next day (Sun), I go to Urgent Care who takes a urine sample & says I have a UTI, gives me Cipro 500mb BID & sends me home. By Mon morning, the burning is unbearable & I see my gynecologist nurse practitioner. She swabs my vagina & takes another urine sample.
Avatar m tn As far as I know, these are the only treatments - http://www.mayoclinic.org/kidney-stones/treatment.htm "Watchful waiting About 85 percent of the time, kidney stones are small enough to pass during urination. This occurs usually within 72 hours of the start of symptoms. The best treatment for these small stones is to drink plenty of water (as much as 2 to 3 quarts per day), stay physically active and wait to pass the stone.
Avatar f tn it depends i have one kidney stone at 32 weeks but it didn't hurt they give u antibiotics and let it pass out of your urine.
Avatar n tn Hi, Lower back pain on one side that increases on resuming activity after one has been lying down for a while and pain radiating down one lower limb, mainly the inner side of the thigh and the back of the knee has been associated with kidney stones or ureteral stones. Bladder infection is usually characterized by increased frequency of urination, pain or burning sensation during urination, lower abdominal pain of a dull. cramping type, and some amount of back pain, and blood in the urine.
Avatar n tn I'm 22 years old, and have suffered with kidney stones for 2 years, ranging from 1 mm to one thats in me right now which is over 10mm! On two separate occasions, when being seen in the ER while in ridiculous amounts of pain, I have been told by doctors that I shouldn't be in pain because there is no obstructing stone. Bull, I say. Renal Colic is a very distinct type of pain, and believe me, there is no mistaking it. I had one doctor go so far as to tell me it must be muscular back pain..
701581 tn?1279139638 Presently, I am having stomach pain every time I eat-daily bloating sometimes vomiting, diarrhea, or constipation with alot of mucous and traces of blood in the mucous. I also have migraine headaches several times a week with alot of vomiting/diarrhea and muscle pains (just also diagnosed with arthritis in my neck). Recieved MRi-results were negative. Most of the time I have bad stomach cramps but can not go to the bathroom.
Avatar m tn Two nights ago I had horrendous pain, frequency and vomiting, which lasted for about 7 hours. My question is, could the stone(s) have passed without me seeing them, even though I am checking for them after each visit to the loo! Also, I know they are painful when passing through the ureter, is it possible that I wouldn't feel them when they leave the urethra?
Avatar n tn Is this common to experience? He has had to take a fleet enema to reduce the vomiting and inability to keep anything down. What can he do to relieve this pain?
Avatar f tn Have you been properly assessed along this line? Was a scan done to establish the presence of these stones? Kidney stones may be asymptomatic depending on their size and the presence of underlying disease conditions like structural anomalies involving the urinary tract. They may present as a dull vague pain over the flank. They may present as a benign back pain. In some patients, the back may be slightly tender when the physician gently hits the area with closed fists.
Avatar f tn Prevention strategies for kidney stones include - Increasing your daily fluid intake and taking the recommended daily allowance of calcium. Increase your fluid intake to the point where your urine volume reaches 2.5 litres a day. This may mean drinking up to 3 litres a day, if you live in a hot, dry climate or if you are involved in strenuous physical activity. Increasing urine volume decreases the concentration of minerals in the urine. This makes it less likely that a stone will form.
Avatar n tn Other people have commented about this in CT. and even went in for ultrasound to determine if kidney stones were present.
Avatar n tn Seven days ago, I had severe pain in my right kidney and vomiting. It stopped after 2 hours, but I woke up with severe pressure and pain in my pubic bone. That has changed in the last 4 days, so now I have severe pain and pressure in my vaginal like I have the worst yeast infection in history. It hurts more when I stand because it's like gravity worsens the pressure. I'm sitting on a heating pad now.
