Avatar n tn I suffer from what is called Polycystic Kidney Disease (google it) which causes chronic kidney stones. Many people have this disease with no signs until they are much olde. When their kidneys begin to fail them. Diarrhea is related because when the stone is stuck in the ureter ( the tube leading down to your bladder from your kidney) this sends a message to your entire digestive tract to stop.
15905440 tn?1443866928 we have a long history of thyroid problems (hypo and hyper) that comes from my mother's maternal and paternal side (and includes my mother). My maternal grandfather also has also had kidney stones once that he managed passed his without it causing an infection. Also my mother has a high uric acid level, but has never had any symptoms caused by it.
545538 tn?1295995617 Re: ""Once again, I ask why can't someone who is overweight, not insulin resistant and in good health other than Hep C treat?" I don't see anyone saying this Kathy... People are suggesting that one address the problem of overweight, before starting treatment." Being overweight is NOT a problem for some people who are treating. Let me repeat that, because it is not being heard: Being overweight is not a problem for some people who are treating.
Avatar n tn I say this to you because you are only 17 and you have a chance to avoid all the problems that being overweight causes- heart problems, lung problems, liver, kidney, you name it. Death rates due to obesity are drastically on the rise. Change this while you are young and can still do so! As for being OCD and taking a lot of medicine- this too is never a good idea. If you get a very bad headache, by all means take a Tylenol or an Advil.
Avatar f tn Have you had an IVP test? This is an x-ray with contrast, and is the best test for kidney stones.
Avatar m tn I'm a 48 year old male, moderately active, overweight (not obese), with hypertension. I do have a history of kidney stones on the right side, but this does not feel like kidney stone pain and my last KUB x-rays in April were clear of stones.
Avatar n tn Recently I've been wondering if there is some occassional liver swelling that causes problems in that area. I've had a few enzyme tests and they have been normal. I wonder if gallbladder can "hide" from tests at times. Is this too low for gallbladder? If it was gallbladder would meds cause pain? Any possibilities outside of gallbladder or liver? Why would a med cause pain? After 2 yrs could pain ever = emergency?
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 f tn My daughter is a cosmetologist and she told me the topo causes the hair follicles to close. What has fallen out, wont grow back, but the hair loss should stop when you discontinue the drug. The Topo really messed up my cycle too. I think my adrenals took a hard hit from just two weeks on the drug. For me it was not worth it. I was stupid, depressed and started having panic attacks on it. I would loose blocks of time. Huge blocks.
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.
1916673 tn?1420236870 Higher than normal potassium is not very unusual in kidney disease, but it is important to discount other potential causes - including kidney or urinary tract stones. An ultra-sound and white blood cell (WBC) count will help identify if stones are a problem. Phosphorus is also too high. Dogs acquire phosphorus directly from food, and normally (in healthy dogs) any excess is excreted through the kidneys.
Avatar m tn Hello, Since you have a history of kidney stones, so this flank pain can be due to kidney stones only. Patients with urinary calculi may report pain, infection, or hematuria. I suggest you to get an ultrasound or CT kidney urinary bladder done. Moreover it can cause further complications. My sincere advice would be to consult a urologist. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn He also started me on HTZC this week so I haven't had an official reading on that yet. I do have chronic kidney stones but other then that I am pretty healthy. All my ekgs and ultrasounds came back normal and so do all my blood work... any ideas??
1373742 tn?1278632896 I have been pretty healthy since then except for the back and the kidney. I am overweight but have no other causes, diabetes, high blood pressure etc. The pain is right above the liver and appendix. I have had mri, mrcp, ct scan, blood work, ultrasounds, xrays, bone scans with everything coming up normal except for elevated white blood cells and an enlarged liver. I have low grade fevers, nausea once in a while, and chills.
Avatar n tn Since then, no problems, no stones, actually this past year I have had a ache in my right back area, pretty much near the kidney area(where my incision is from the surgery).. I have a appointment with my Urologist this month, but I am wondering if its scar tissue? Or is this just a very weak spot for me.. but it aches something awful sometimes.
Avatar n tn Also it could be due to referred pain of kidney stones. An ultrasound of the lower abdomen will be able to rule out kidney stones. It could be due to cancer of testis. It could be due to varicocele or spermatocele. An ultrasound of the testicles will diagnose cancer, varicocele and spermatocele. An excruciating pain is often due to testicular torsion and needs surgical intervention ASAP to save the testis.
Avatar n tn Hi and thank you for taking the time to review my question. I am a 41yr old woman 5'6" tall. I am overweight by about 70lbs. I have an accessory pathway in my heart which causes pac's. For this I take 20mg of Inderal and 10mg of HCTZ daily. Recently, (beginning 2 weeks ago)I have developed daily lightheadedness with corresponding nausea. The feeling is generally that of like you've been on a boat for a while and are now off.
1420486 tn?1384796753 I am curious, a family member has the gerds, and the diver (I forgot how to say the rest of that word). She also has kidney stones, hernia, some other stone, gall blader removed, diabeties, and Ill bet she is a tad over weight. Her diabeties is a mess with the highs and lows. her ac1 is greater than 12, she has highblood presure. Her liver enzymes are up, they took her of a statin...can the meds for gerds cause damage to her liver????
2099155 tn?1336597801 Hi! Low back pain can be due to muscle pull/strain. However there are other causes too. Pressure on the lumbar nerves can cause pain due to spondylotic changes in vertebrae, degenerative bone disease, herniated disc, bone disease, cancer or TB of the vertebra or bad posture. Kidney problems, stones in the urinary tract and colitis or IBS are the other possibilities. There is a chance that you have compression of the spinal nerves in the lumbo-sacral spine region.
Avatar n tn You should consult a doctor for your symptoms - this could be due to a muscle pull or sprain, neuralgias, kidney stones etc. Do you remember any history of trauma or injury to the site? Have any investigations been done as yet? Is there any releif with pain relief medications or antireflux medications? Do let us know the above details and also post us about the endoscopy report. Regards.
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 f tn I since have developed autoimmune disease(probably rheumatoid arthritis), a herniated disc on my lower back, and degenerative disc disease in general. The scar tissue from all the invasive kidney procedures causes me so much pain, I cannot sleep, and when I do, the pain will eventually wake me up! I will be going into detox in a week or so. I take 8 Norco a day, but have taken up to 14 on the bad days. I began to go to ER's to get the extra pills.
Avatar n tn Usually a pain in lower back shooting down the leg is due to sciatica. Kidney stones should however be looked into since you have pain in lower abdomen. Another possibility is that along with sciatica, you have compression of the superficial peroneal nerve—this causes pain in groin area and upper thigh.
Avatar n tn I suffer from what is called Polycystic Kidney Disease (google it) which causes chronic kidney stones. Many people have this disease with no signs until they are much older. When their kidneys begin to fail them. The main symptom is high blood pressure beginning as a young adult. why? Because your kidneys are working too hard fighting off the cysts and they are not filtering correctly. I was diagnosed with PKD in July last year after a car accident.
Avatar n tn •Pancreatitis - also known as inflammation of the pancreas, can cause amylase and lipase levels to be increased up to 3 times normal. Both values should be increased, in order to carry the diagnosis of pancreatitis. •Lipase may be increased in tumors of the pancreas, or stomach certain stomach conditions. These conditions are usually painful. •Gall bladder infection - Inflammation of the gall bladder (cholecystitis), may cause increased lipase levels (hyperlipasemia).

Avatar n tn Was there a previous trauma or injury in your back? Kidney infection or kidney stones could present as blood in the urine and back pain with painful urination. However, if there is pain when twisting, bending or even sitting, this could be from muscle spasm or pulled muscle. Apply warm compress or use an anti-inflammatory medicine for the pain and get rest. If the pain persists or if your symptoms get worse, it is best to see your doctor. Take care and keep us posted.
