Avatar n tn I had an xray done and they found that I have 2 kidnet stones that are found to be in the kidney still. They say that the stones are on the left side. Now recently it hurts all over in my abdomin and into my back. If the stones have moved is this something that is part of the process? The doctors arent in until Tues. and I am just praying that this holds off until then. I was suppose to have them broke up but she thought I could wait. What does it sound like?
1226479 tn?1267209290 Causes include lesions of the urinary tract, disease of the prostate, trauma, tumors, malaria or stones in the urinary tract. In your case as kidney stones are present, so these definitely need evaluation as nephrolithiasis or kidney stones are known to cause hematuria. Moreover it can cause further complications. My sincere advice would be to consult a urologist. I hope that helps. Please do keep me posted. Kind regards.
Avatar f tn I'm not a doctor, but do have too much experience with kidney stones. For me, I'd get pings and pangs in my kidney as well as microhematuria (blood you cannot see by eye) in my urine when I have stones. I've also had the flank pain you describe .. for me it's been in the lower back. I hope with lots of water your stones move out for you uneveventfully. Please keep in touch. From what I've read stones <5.0mm usually move out on their own with a high % of non-complications, etc.
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 f tn Sorry you didn't get an answer to your question, which is most likely because we don't know, or due to so many repeat and/or similar questions, perhaps it was answered in another post, so you might do a thread/post search. However, if you haven't already, you might go to the Doctor Thyroid Forum and ask Dr. Lupo at http://www.medhelp.org/forums/show/120 OR at left of page almost top, under "Thyroid Disorders" in red click on "thyroid" it will take you to the forum.
Avatar f tn On Monday (Sept. 30) I went to my local emergency room facility complaining of back pain and nausea. I have been suffering a UTI for a few months, but was unable to get it treated as I had been abroad for the last 6 months. They performed a urinalysis on me and asked the general questions, and then left me sat in a room for 2 hours. They came back later to tell me I have a severe UTI and bladder infection and prescribed antibiotics and a low-dose painkiller.
Avatar m tn I had to visit the emergency room about a week ago with a stone blocking the flow of urine from my bladder. I often have stones and pass them with little difficulty, but this one got stuck, and I had to have a catheter inserted. I do not normally have a problem passing urine. The doctor started me on Flomax, but after four days I had to stop. I was dizzy, disoriented, and my vision blurred. Even walking was difficult.
Avatar f tn I was born with a condition that causes my body to create kidney stones. I have been to the emergency room 4 or 5 times in the past 18 years for the large stones, small ones pass ok. My first stone caused bleeding and severe back pain also with pain in the lower abdomen area along with hot/cold flashes and vomiting. It may feel like someone is squeezing your kidney while at the same time stabbing it with an ice pick. I first though it was my appendix. I was wrong. Water, water, water.
1350822 tn?1276884482 I remember when my poor mother lay suffering in pain in the hospital back in 2007 from a kidney infection and stones which had got so bad that she needed IV antibiotics, how we "waited" on the "specialist" to come in and examine her (which was days away). Well, that never happened because the infection was so bad that it killed her on the morning that the "specialist" was supposed to arrive.
Avatar m tn When I have had an emergency (kidney stones recently) I go to our local hospital ER. They treat and diagnose me, in fact they have wanted to admit me on several occasions. So I don't understand why you feel you have to return to this particular ER. Please let us know how you and your husband are doing. And as always good luck and take care.
670748 tn?1291078694 I went to the emergency room on Thursday the 1st with extreme pain in my right side. They took a CAT scan and determined I have kidney stones. They said it was the size of a grain of sand. Also I was told to eat only soup and drink alot of water. I was prescribed flomax, IBProfin, and vicodin. When should I expect to pass the stone? and Can I eat any solids? It is Sunday and I have yet to pass it.
Avatar n tn On Saturday I went to the emergency room for treatment of my 1st Kidney stone, it is now Tuesday and it has not yet passed. This is not an issue, yet.. The issue I have is that while I had an orgasm on Tuesday, I did not ejaculate any sperm. What could be the problem?
Avatar f tn Then my husband and I had sex a few days after my period was finished and a couple days later I got the chills and the terrible pain again and this time it was on a saturday so I waited till monday to go to the dr cause I dont have insurance and didn't want a emergency room visit to pay for if I didn't need to.
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 f tn Yesterday day 12 off Oxy, I went to the emergency room and was treated for kidney stones. I had to have surgery to get them out but in the meantime I was given several IV injections of Dilaudid. Will I now end up starting over with withdrawal? Dilaudid is a different medication than what I am detoxing off of.? Does that make a difference in weather or not I have will have wersoning withdrawal symptoms?
Avatar f tn I am out of work so I had to go to the public hospital emergency room. They took a urine sample and x ray of my body. The nurse suspected kidney stones because I of the pain and because I told her that I did see blood when I went to the restroom a week ago, but the x ray and urine test came back fine. They prescribed neproxin and told me to put heat on it and drink lots of water. It is wednesday and the pain is still happening.

Avatar m tn Pain Med don't seem to be helping. Should we go to the emergency room or contact the doctor.?
Avatar n tn My husband passed a stone today (very painful) and was taken to the emergency room. They found a high white blood cell count (blood test) and I would like to know if this is common or could it be something else. He is seeing a uroligist (sp) and his family doctor later this week but I am very worried about this elevated white blood cell count.

Avatar n tn Hi, It seems to be what is called renal colic, typically associated with stones in renal tract. Kidney stones, also called renal calculi, are solid concretions (crystal aggregations) of dissolved minerals in urine. 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.
Avatar f tn I forgot to mention that I went to the emergency room 2 weeks ago for kidney pain and increased heart rate. They took some blood. the result was that one of my thyroid hormones was too high. Could it be that my kidneys are not processing vitamin D appropriately, as in "Vitamin D deficiency?
Avatar n tn A subsequent CT scan revealed I had 2 additionall ( 2mm non-obstructing) stones in my right kidney and a cluster of at least (four 2-3 mm stones in my left kidney). They were also non-obstructive. I've been told by a couple of doctors and urologists that they cannot be the cause of my pain, even though the pain feels just like when I had obsturctive ones. I can also feel the damn things moving around and it causes me to have kidney spasms.
Avatar m tn 00am. Was given an IV with pain medication (high dosage of Motrin) and had a CT Scan and my urine and blood tested. I actually had blood in my urine. The CT Scan found 2 kidney stones both approximately 2mm in size. One is in my ureter and the other still in my left kidney. Still haven't passed them yet. The ER Doctor saw a mass approximately 1 CM in my right kidney while reading the CT Scan.
Avatar f tn I am a poor water drinker which contributes to the formation of most kidney stones. I suggest that you have your stones analysed if you have not done that. I was told by 2 urologists that there is nothing that I can take or do that will change my situation. Both urologist told me the same as what yours said, my chronic back pain was not related to kidney stones. They were correct and I was diagnosed with other issues that was the cause of most of my chronic low back pain.
Avatar m tn It was found that my stone was calcium based and I was told to avoid all dairy products as well as some fruit and veg. There are 4 different types of kidney stones. Unfortunately, once you have had kidney stones the chances of getting another one are much higher.

I have to drink plenty of water every day.
Avatar n tn To his credit, my doctor told me on the phone tonight to call him any time or go to the emergency room if I felt like it was necessary. I have also in the past 4 hours lost control of my bladder. I feel the sensation to urinate and when I stand up I have to literally run to the bathroom and sometimes am not making it without dripping on the floor. Thank you in advance for your response. It's now 4:00 am and I am still awake.
