Avatar m tn // Sometimes it can be caused by ingrowing hairs. So, we'll see what they say this time. glad you saw an opthamologist. I don't know what is causing the other problems. I am sorry about all this. I hope they can figure this out.
Avatar f tn I do have some patients that swear they feel their nonobstructing stones. After we rule out other causes I am ok with treating the stones with either ureteroscopy or ESWL, so long as the patient agrees with me up front that the stone removal may, or may not treat their pain. Good luck to you! Dr.
Avatar n tn I have a history of kidney stones and basicly try to eat right and all to advoid having them and only have been able to go see a doc about that when they do flare up about every 4 years at an ER. I have been searching online and this is the 1st place that anyone has even hinted at the 3 periods a month is "normal" for being in a menopausal stage.
Avatar n tn I also have kidney stones chronically. I just got a CT scan yesterday, have a 4mm stone in my right kidney. My Dr said this should pass on its own. I once passed 18 stones in a 24 hour period, after lithography. That was awful. Nothing seems to work for me I am 47 and had them since I was a teenager. Seems the older I get the faster they come. My kidneys were clear in June, this is Aug and already have a 4mm stone, and passed a 2 or 3mm stone a couple weeks ago.
Avatar m tn People I know what I am talking about I have had kidney stones/kidney disease since 1965. Your doctor is wrong most kidney stones can be treated: the goal is to stop or slow down the formation of them. This is accomplished through metabolic testing... which many be done by a nephrologist in some parts of the US. Once it is determined what is causing the stones to form and the composition of them..
Avatar m tn The below are the most common causes of the pain according to the Mayo clinic.. It is said that just thinking of having testicle pain can cause the pain.
Avatar m tn At the same web address, there is a menu that will take you to the symptoms and treatments, too. The Mayo Clinic is a respected hospital that has many branches throughout the United States, but if you contact them via their website or by telephoning, they may be able to refer you to a hospital in the Ukraine or Europe that you could perhaps visit and get quality treatment.
Avatar n tn Since that time she has been treated for endometriosis, kidney stones and now this false tumor. While hospitialized, a lumbar puncture was done and medication given to her. However the lumbar puncture caused her vein to collapse so they took it out. Next, they did a procedure where they snaked a a type of flexible wire through her artery in up her arm to send medication directly through the artery, past the heart. That was taken out two days ago because they couldn't figure out what to do.
Avatar n tn There is nothing worse than a pain you can't seem to treat or get an answer about. I can totally sympathize. There are so many causes of pain on the upper left side of a persons abdomen.
Avatar n tn Right when I got home from the hospital and 6 months of rehabilitation I started developing bladder stones and had a foly catheter in that would plug up all the time, so my Uroligist put in a S/P tube that kept plugging up even if I use irrigation up to 5 times daily and I had continual infections so in 1987 he performed a loop and that seemed to work for awhile, but now I have kidney stones that just keep forming.

After years and years of countless thousands of kidney-stones, 100's of procedures (both invasive & non), many thousands of CT's, X-Rays, KUB's, Nuclear-Medicine Tests, etc, etc... my urologist has finally stepped up and offered me a left-side Nephrectomy (kidney removal).
Avatar f tn Factors that can cause urinary blood, known medically as hematuria, range from strenuous exercise, urinary tract infections and an enlarged prostate to kidney or bladder stones, kidney disease, and, occasionally, kidney cancer or bladder cancer. * Foods. Beets, blackberries and mom's rhubarb pie can turn urine red or pink. * Medications. Certain laxatives — Ex-lax is an example — can cause red urine.
Avatar f tn I've seen articles online that suggested that taking supplemental magnesium can help prevent kidney stones. Low mag causes our bodies lots of problems.
Avatar m tn Thais is why it is called a silent illness most people have no idea something is going on. For example dark urine causes per the mayo clinic. Red or pink urine Despite its alarming appearance, red urine isn't necessarily serious. Red or pink urine may be caused by: Blood. Factors that can cause urinary blood (hematuria) include urinary tract infections, enlarged prostate, cancerous and noncancerous tumors, kidney cysts, long-distance running, and kidney or bladder stones. Foods.
Avatar n tn If I could afford to leave my HMO and go to Mayo, it sure sounds tempting, and I don't even live in a state that has a Mayo clinic. Last week I went to the dentist for sudden teeth sensitivity to cool and hot liquids, even air when I breathed in, and am currently toughing it out to see if I need root canals to my teeth or if it is as he suspects the post-palsy painful effects of the facial nerve being affected possibly by Bells Palsy (except my eye lids and forehead work fine).
Avatar m tn Metallic taste in mouth: A cause for concern? A metallic taste in the mouth is a fairly common problem — and usually not serious. Although you don't have actual taste buds that detect metals, the perception of the taste is described as "metallic." A metallic taste can be due to many factors.

Avatar n tn Getting back the last tests results this week, urine sent to mayo clinic and brain eeg and talking to heart doctor about what he read on 30 day event monitor. if all this looks ok, i will have to think it is/was all stress related. The pain in chest is bothersome. stays so sore and gets worse when i cough or do much. spot about the size of a fist right between breast a little to the left . thanks for responding.
Avatar f tn Hi I am curious if someone could help me. I have had Kidney stones for several years after my last baby pinched off my kidney. I have bilateral kidney infections that put me in the hospital several times a year. I had a hysterectomy 2 years ago and now they are telling my my bladder is abnoramallly thick and is double in size. I have trouble uninating and really have swelling and discomfort. I was scheduled for a cystoscope tomm and the doctor called to cancel.
Avatar f tn Pyelonephritis – infection of the kidney Glomerulonephritis (kidney inflammation), kidney cyst or tumor Urinary stones LEFT ADRENAL GLAND The adrenal gland, also known as the suprarenal gland, is located on the top of the kidney. It has two distinct layers, the medulla and cortex, which secrete various hormones that play important roles in the body. Adrenal adenoma (benign tumor) Adrenal carcinoma also known as adrenocortical carcinoma.
Avatar f tn No standard doctor, even a ID doc, will be able to figure this out. Type in Lymes/mycoplasma/Mayo clinic, Cleveland clinic, etc and read the responses who said they went to the Mayo as well and were told they were fine. Lymes/mycoplasmas causes chronic inflamation throughout your body, BUT your tests will vary a little from the baseline. A little above, a little below but nothing out of the ordinary. That's why these bacteria are known as Stealth Pathogens.
Avatar f tn So after 17 total days in the hospital, I was placed on oxycontin and percocet, in the hope that the pain I was feeling was residual pain from the complications I had experienced. Eight months later, countless doctors, a trip to the Mayo Clinic, and I still did not have a diagnosis. What I did have, was spreading of this pain.
Avatar n tn I have had kidney stones removed surgically on three occasions over the past ten years. Each time the Dr. has left a stent in my urinary tract. The first two times the stent had a string attached to it. When the stent was removed it caused minimal discomfort. The third time which was perfomed recently, the Dr. said he preferred not to attach a string to the stent. I agreed, not knowing that I was agreeing to a procedure that was infinitely different from my previous experiences.
Avatar n tn but it's very rare to have IBS give pain in one specific location and not be more diffuse. I then went to Mayo Clinic, and they said it's not IBS because of this same reason. I'm now back to my local dr.s continuing on the path to hopefully finding a reason for my pain. On my next visit I'm going to ask for a lower abdominal MRI and then a referral to a surgeon to see if they will do an exploratory laparotomy with elective appendectomy. I had my gallbladder removed in May and my GYN dr.
Avatar n tn Also, I read somewhere once that sometimes when the blood needs to reduce it's volume, that excessive urination will follow. I like the Mayo Clinic website, and sometimes WebMD, but failing that, I just google things and see what turns up more than a few times.
Avatar n tn I do pretty well and after a week or so at this temp. pains gets better. I have been to hospitals including mayo clinic. I with I could tell you what it is but I cant. I well tell you it is real.If I find the answere Ill post on this site.

Avatar m tn With the symptoms you describe and the pelvic floor area pain, you may have kidney stones. That is why it is important to get the urine checked and ask the doctor to do a kidney function test and also record your blood pressure and possibly send you for an ultra sound of the urinary tract. If your blood pressure is elevated over a course of 3 weeks with other causes being ruled out, the doctor may put you on medication for this.
Avatar f tn Primary hyperparathyroidism removes the calcium from your teeth and bones and deposits the calcium in your kidneys (kidney stones), bladder, blood vessels, muscles, and body organs. The doctors at Mayo Clinic tested my hydroxyapatite crystals, which are clinically elevated, but did not do anything with the results. My mother and grandmother had these same problems, which their doctors only prescribed pain medicine.
Avatar m tn The Flip-Turn Sinus Flush (by friggy) removes infected mucus from every part of your sinuses, which Mayo Clinic research shows is the cure for sinusitis, rather than treating sinus tissue with antibiotics. Regular saline irrigation does not work in the upper sinuses, because of gravity, but the Sinus Flush defeats gravity. It is effective with bacterial and viral infections, and some but not all fungal infections. The Flip-Turn is the original, and still the best Sinus Flush. WARNING!
