895634 tn?1283992810 This disorder runs in families and affects both men and women. •Struvite stones are mostly found in women who have a urinary tract infection. These stones can grow very large and can block the kidney, ureter, or bladder. •Uric acid stones are more common in men than in women. They can occur with gout or chemotherapy. •Other substances also can form stones including the medications acyclovir, indinavir, and triamterene. The biggest risk factor for kidney stones is not drinking enough fluids.
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 It took a while but the pain I was having was finally diagnosed as a kidney stone and I have another symptomatic one in the other kidney. But I wonder if kidney stones cause anemia because I suddenly became anemic just over a year ago and we have not been able to find a cause. Although I had occult blood in my urine due to the stone, it was not a lot. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this too or if anyone might know if stones can cause anemia?
Avatar m tn A person who has had kidney stones often gets them again in the future. Kidney stones often occur in premature infants. Some types of stones tend to run in families. Certain kinds of stones can occur with bowel disease, ileal bypass for obesity, or renal tubule defects. There are different types of kidney stones. The exact cause depends on the type of stone. Calcium stones are most common. They occur more often in men than in women, and usually appear between ages 20 - 30.
Avatar m tn The only places you should feel any pain at all from the kidney stones, is in the ureters, if you're female. (the ureters are the tubes that carry your urine from the kidneys to the bladder). In Females, once the stone(s) reach the bladder, it should be no pain at all, and it doesn't take long at all for the stones to pass when you urinate, the stones will be carried out of the bladder, through the urethra.
Avatar n tn I have had a KUB that has detected approximately 8 stones in my left kidney and 14 stones in my right. I even had lithotripsy on a 7 mm stone on the left. I continue to have the pain on the right. My doctor says that I should not be having this pain because none of the stones are big enough (all 3-5 mm) to block anything. However, still the pain. He has prescribed Vicodin, which helps a little, but I am beginning to feel a little like a druggie.
Avatar f tn I was always told how uncommon it was for a girl my age (first stones were at age 19,I am now 27) to have kidney stones and also plus because I am a woman and women don't tend to get them. I was never ever offered any help even after asking for advice from many doctors on what should I do?? I have had kidney stones at least 3-4 Times a year. But this past month I have passed 10 stones so far and counting. Each time at the ER I am prescribed pain meds and anti nausea pills and sent home.
Avatar f tn When I was in middle and high school, I had a few bouts of kidney stones. They put stents in my ureters, and then later reconstructed the right one because it was kinked up. For a few years after the surgery I felt fine. However, this spasming pain I have been having has been going on consistently for almost two years now. Every doctor I see wants to pass it off on kidney stones, yet they cannot see any obstructions on the IVPs, CT Scans, etc. Also I haven't passed a stone since I was about 15!
Avatar m tn Research alternative health for kidney stones....why are you on a low calcium diet...the body will make stones if their is a defiency...also boron and magnesium will help the body utilize might check out ' and find out what foods to eat.
757137 tn?1347200053 Magnesium will get rid of kidney stones, and cranberry juice will prevent them.
Avatar f tn I concur with Spotjeff. My natural doctor says: "Most kidney stones are composed of calcium oxalate. Magnesium makes calcium more soluble in the urine, and inhibits the formation of calcium-oxalate crystals. One study examined 55 people with reoccurring kidney stones, who were given 500 milligrams of magnesium daily for up to 4 years. the study showed that 85% of these people remained stone0free compared with 41% in a group of people who did not receive magnesium supplements.
Avatar n tn In addition, they supplemented their diets daily with Folic Acid and Acidophilus in pill or live cultures found in yogurts. Several women found long term relief with this combination. Another website recommended mixing 2 teaspons of Apple Cider Vinegar and 1 teaspon iodized salt in a half full yogurt container and applying vaginally for 7 days. Repeat as needed. BV is an overgrowth of natural occuring bacteria thought to be brought on by an imbalance of vaginal ph.
Avatar n tn The initial cause was not stones or a bladder infection but a streptococcus virus that had made it's way to his kidney and decided to set up camp in the right kidney. I've never heard of this before in my life. It is possible that the second flare up of red pee was a result of his little four year old sister delivering him a wallop in the tummy while playing in spite of us telling the kids to play carefully to protect Gabe!
1832268 tn?1326819610 The amount of phosphorus content is important too - try to maintain a diet that is low in phosphorus. Here's another article of mine on how diet affects kidney failure dogs: There are lots of other articles by me on canine kidney disease at: Hope some of this helps. If you join our group, please start a new thread with the name of your dog and a brief history (like your first post above).
Avatar f tn Pelvic and/or vaginal pain can be due to UTIs, vulvovaginitis, labial adhesions and foreign body in vagina like a toilet paper etc, STD, PID or pelvic inflammatory disease, uterine or extra uterine endometriosis, kidney stones and vaginal prolapse.
1522652 tn?1291241954 My back, hips, neck, I had frequent headaches in the morning, the hot flashes and night sweats were constant, I had intractable heart burn, and had passed 6 kidney stones in 2 years. (I passed them at home-not something I'd recommend...) I was so tired that everything was a chore. The kidney stones gave me UTI's (I learned after the first one to take Uristat (pyridium -urinary tract numbing agent) and Cranberry capsules which kept the infections from starting.
Avatar m tn As I understand, Flomax is off-label for use in women to help passage of kidney stones by smoothing the muscles of the ureter, etc. I know exactly how you feel ... A 3.0mm stone has a high chance to pass on it's own, but the waiting is the hardest part. You've gotten terrific advice above.
Avatar f tn HI I am 31 yr old women I recently had kidney stones a month ago and passed them they think went to er and they were sending it to lab as I was leaving! So I don't know but on and off the pain comes in waves it's like I wanted to die from the pain well Ive called my doc 3 times and he said to change my's gettin to the point were i can't eat anything fyi I am on a diet where i only eat 100 grams of protien and i drink a gallon 1/2 of water a day...
Avatar m tn The Urologist tells me they are not kidney stones, but at bladder stones, and common, but I can't find a single word about them on the internet (regarding humans). They seem to be mentioned in cats and perhaps goats, and remedied by changes in diet. The particles are always between 1/10th mm and 1.5 mm in diameter, and spherical or ovoid. The cross section shows layering, with whitish and orange rust-like colors. My urologist says they're not important and nothing to worry about.
Avatar n tn Last year I was rushed into hospital with severe lower back pain, vomiting, constant urination, and blood in urine. They discovered a 3mm kidney stone in my left kidney. It was too small and too soft for them to do anything so I had to carry on with the embarrassment of this unpleasant odour. It affected personal relationships and my confidence especially when working indoors. Deodorants seemed to make it worse and I was washing clothes much more regularly.
Avatar m tn Eat some stalks before going out or during your bar visit. Cure kidney stones with lemonade. Kidney stones have become a common health problem. The number of people suffering from them has doubled in the past 13 years. If you are one of them then start downing lemonade. Lemon juice has the highest levels of citrate of any citrus juice, and that citrate helps dissolve any calcium deposits that will eventually turn into kidney stones.
6850426 tn?1385502685 Kidney stones do not cause pain or problems until they start to move or press on tissue. Kidney stones come in different sizes and can sometimes be very small like a grain of sand, but can still do damage if they scratch the linings. Some stones (like grains of sand or sediment) can pass through the urinary tract without you knowing that you have had a stone. Do you get any physical symptoms at the time that microscopic blood is detected?
Avatar n tn i dont have the greatest diet in the world (high sodium and fat in proportion to other nutrients). have been supplementing with centrum performance off and on for a couple years. i also have a job where i sit for long periods of time (i am a computer programmer). i am not very active away from work either. been experiencing the buzzing for 4 weeks now. today seems to have been a calmer day. it seems the less i think about it, the calmer it gets.
Avatar n tn Many drs miss this diagnosis, especially in women and in the early stages. It is the most common genetic disorder found among people of European descent and the most often misdiagnosed or not diagnosed until late stages of the organ damage.
Avatar m tn Some smells can come from liver or kidney diseases, (I think it's called ketosis), or from acid reflux in the stomach, or from a brain injury 8. Some smells can come from having a bad mix of bacteria in the intestines, and somehow the smell comes out through the sinuses or lungs. The best solution that I have seen is The Schwarzbein Principle by Dr. Diana Schwarzbein, MD. 9. There is a disease called atrophic rhinitis, which involves the decay of the mucus membranes in the sinuses.
Avatar n tn It had never happened before that (unless some pods went unnoticed, which is possible, but certainly it hadn’t gotten as extreme as it got here). I began to realize that my diet became a lot different here in the South. I had never had much Mexican food before but I found that I really liked it. I knew that cheese bothered me but I have always just dealt with that and had it in limited doses.
1361959 tn?1277687317 Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, infection in kidney, kidney stones, constipation, ovary involvement in women, ectopic pregnancy in women, mesentry (a thin tissue that carries the blood, nerves and lymphatics for the intestine) involvement, and an abscess in rectus abdominis muscle or psoas muscle can all cause lower right abdomen pain. Hence these causes should be eliminated by a CT scan of the abdomen. Crohn’s disease is a difficult entity to diagnose.
Avatar m tn I'm a 26 yr old Male, who currently suffers from back pains in the mornings. Other than the back pains, I would say that I am a healthy and fit person. The pain only occurs in the mornings. As soon as I get up and start moving around, and stretching out the back, the pain starts to dissappear, with only a slight tingle left during the day, but not really noticeable.
Avatar f tn I have had kidney stones since about that age and they do occur in my family. No one in my family has any severe kidney conditions. As to any potential of inheritance or risk of any severe kidney conditions if they occur in your family it would be worthwhile to ask your doctor that question. There are a wide variety of kidney conditions and their inheritance potential varies. This has some standard information about kidney stones: http://www.mayoclinic.
Avatar n tn it may be as a result of damage done during removal of kidney-stone although doctors seem to disagree on this. Found blood when masturbating (but none in urine) earlier this year. Saw doctor and had pta test done. It was normal. I went though hell while waiting on result. I was almost sure I has cancer. The condition cleared up. It has now recurred and there seems to be more blood than the first time.Seemingly it can be caused by burst blood vessels when "there is no semen".
