Avatar n tn Hi Doctor!! I have three kidney stones of 6mm, 5 mm, and 4 mm respectively, in lower part of kidney: they sonologist told that they are found quite near to each other. I, at times, feel pain on the back side of right part of abdomen: Kindly guide me the appropriate treatment.
Avatar m tn It is obviously still attached since i did not experience the extreme pain yet. Sometimes i get vivid pain higher in my back but only for few seconds. Sometimes my back gets better for a day or 2 but the pain comes back. Went to see an ART (Active release Technique) specialist because i thought it could be muscular since the pain in my right side tends to be affected by bowel movement and deep breading (sometimes). It actually helped me right away but only for 48 hours.

Avatar n tn Even I have had stone problem since many years. I get back pain or leg ache even when the stones are inside the kidney. Doctors have told me that if it is in the kidney it won’t pain but I disagree with them. I get very frustrated at times with this recurring problem. I have made dietary changes and also increased water consumption but new stones keep forming.
Avatar m tn In addition the therapy for renal stones depends on the size, the location and the kidney functions. Certain foods are likely to aggravate the stone formation. Dietary changes may help prevent kidney stone formation if you are prone for it. 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.
Avatar f tn I stopped drinking the tap water out of my faucet and only drinking bottled water and the number and frequency of my stones dropped back to a manageable, normal level. Even water for my morning coffee is bottled water. By manageable I mean about 1 a year, which is pretty normal for me. At least my multiple stone episodes stopped for the most part.
Avatar m tn The pain of kidney stones are excruciating for some and others feel nothing, depending on the size of the stone. The pain comes from the stone moving down from the kidney to the bladder via the ureter. Once it is in the bladder, usually you shouldn't experience any pain . Drink lots of water!!! This is the only way to flush them out. You will never know if you have passed it out in your urine unless you strain it.
Avatar m tn These radiolucent stones can be seen in an ultrasound or CT of the kidneys. Pain usually returns if the stone moves but re-obstructs in another location. Patients are encouraged to strain their urine so they can collect the stone when it eventually passes This is then sent for chemical composition analysis which will be used along with a 24 hour urine chemical analysis test to establish preventative options. Over-the-counter pain medications may help.
Avatar f tn I had ultrasounds and no cyst but my insides wewere too swollen to find my appendix. The pain has spread to my back...same location just front and back now. Doc says iys prob an infection and ill see him again tomorrow. ...ive been put on antibiotics for uti ubtil i gwt my results but im worried its a kidney infection...I knew kidney infections can be deadly in pregnancy...is this true? Im freaking out...
Avatar n tn On the otherhand, if your primary care doctor does not feel that you need these tests and your pain has subsided then I would hate to subject to to invasive tests with little chance of being useful. Kidney stones are usually extremely painful, patients are very sick. The pain is in the flank, back or irritative in the bladder, but generalized abdominal pain can occur. Patients often are nauseated, vomit, and do not want to eat.

Avatar n tn If I try to hold back my urine when my bladder is very full, I will sometimes experience pain high on my left side. It feels like reflux so maybe I am pushing the limits a bit. All in all, I am well and happy that I had the corrective surgery when I did. I wish you good luck and a long healthy life.
Avatar m tn Kidney stones less than 5 millimeters in size almost always pass on their own while stones larger than 6 millimeters may not pass on their own. The pain from passing a kidney stone is typically sharp and cramping. It may begin in the back and side where the kidneys are located. As the stone moves down the ureter the location of the pain may sometimes change. It is fairly common for persons to feel pain in the groin and testes. Nausea, vomiting, and sweating chills are also common.
Avatar f tn I wake up with extreme lower back pain middle to the back to lower back after an hour of walking around I feel better I went to the doctor 2 weeks ago the only did a urine analysis that I had moderate amount of blood in my urine said had kidney stone but I don't think I do i can't go back to doctor yet anyone have a clue
Avatar f tn When she was finally diagnosed previously, after days of intense pain, the stones were still in the kidney, so her original stones caused pain for her before they ever moved out of the kidney. She has had no other symptoms, and for now she is feeling great. She was a bit discouraged when we left the dr, wondering what in the world could "mimic" the stones, if it wasn't the stones.
Avatar f tn I have had some mild brief pain and pressure in my lower back but nothing to really take note of. I had an abdominal ultrasound for another issue earlier in the week and saw my results online ...I have an 8mm kidney stone in the lower pole of my left kidney. I read some and know that this is unlikely to pass on its own. Since it is really not causing me any problems will it be recommended to be treated or can it just sit there.
Avatar f tn If it gets real bad it can completely block off the kidney and make the person septic. Although back pain is common in pregnancy it is normally the entire lower back. Your description of the area sounds like kidney location.
Avatar n tn Hi, It does seem to me like you are having stones in the kidney. The symptom of pain you have described is very typical of it trying to be expelled from the body. Symptoms of kidney stones include colicky pain: "loin to groin". Often described as "the worst pain ever experienced." Other symptoms could be blood in the urine, due to minor damage to inside wall of kidney, ureter and/or urethra. Pyuria: pus in the urine. Dysuria: burning on urination when passing stones.
7959097 tn?1395766480 Well, strange though it may sound to your, testicular pain can be a referred pain due to kidney stone. I understand you had kidney stones earlier and none caused this pain—but the referral of pain to testis depends on the location of stone. The other possibility is inguinal hernia on that side. Please have a surgeon look into 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 f tn Is the pain you are experiencing greatly around your lower back? because this is where your kidneys are, and this location of pain suggests kidney infection, but you will also probably feel nausea brought on by the kidney pain. The pain was so bad i could not sleep at night the first time i felt it and went to doctor right away.
Avatar m tn Hello Gotpaininhip, Welcome to MedHelp's Pain Management Forum. I am sorry to hear about your undiagnosed pain. We know how frustrating it is when a concrete reason cannot be found for your pain. My heart goes out to you. I am far from an expert. In my personal opinion I would think an infection would have accompanying symptoms such as fever, nausea or similar somatic symptoms. An x-ray is not a very good diagnostic tool for vertebra, disc or other spinal structure conditions.
Avatar m tn - Fearing the worst, I went to the doctors and told them about the pain, and he ordered an xray for my back and this came back fine. - I've changed my mattress twice now to one that is designed to support the back. - I've paid attention to my pillow, and have changed that too, to one that provides greater support (latex - dunlopillow) - I try to exercise regularly, and pay particular attention to stretching out the back. I believe that the pain must be associated with the way that I sleep.
Avatar f tn Small kidney stones can cause sharp pain right over the kidney. Please see a doctor and have a workup to rule out kidney stones. In the mean time, lower your calcium consumption and drink plenty of fluids. If it is a stone, you may be able to flush it out, but you'll need medical assistance either way. Best of luck.
Avatar f tn Ive visited the doctors for 15 months giving symptoms of what ive got thought i was a complete nut job a month ago i started urinating blood and my urine was so dark and strong went to a different doctor who sent me for a ultrasound and camara up bladder last week found nothing ive had fever colic no energy pains in stomach back and herendous pain in left kidney like geting ripped open with a knife at my wits end im trying not to take painkillers but im drinking concentrated lemon j
Avatar n tn I have battled chronic bv and have had kidney stones. Now when onset of bv I experience pain in area onmy left back side near the same location as pain from the stones. I have never had success of clearing the bv with any prescription or attempt of using live acodiphillus or yogurt, baking soda douches and etc. Please help!

Avatar f tn I have been suffering from chronic kidney stones for 19 years, multiple stones, multiple sizes in both kidneys. I hae not been stone free anytime since the first one passed in 1991. I hve had over 200 + stone related surgeries, everyone of them. I made 50 new stones from Nov. to Jan, this year. I am on my 3rd surgery since september now and awaiting another one due to an 8 mm stone.
Avatar n tn Family history of kidney stones, my father has had at least 5 flair ups, 1 surgery and numerous lithos done. Recently my sister, after about two years of going to her doc with pain, was diagnosed and had the litho done (her right kidney was said to have been shut done for several months to a year). While I was pregnant last year I had pain in my right lower back, it lasted for about 20min the first time and about 45min the second.
