Kidney stones fatigue

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones fatigue


Avatar m tn Hello, Since the kindey stone is 7 mm, so the symptoms seem unrelated to the kidney stones. Since you are having pedal or leg edema, hence your cardiac, liver and kidney functions need to be assessed for which I suggest you to consult a physician immediately. Abdominal causes like irritable bowel syndrome can also cause such symptoms. Common symptoms include abdominal cramping or pain, bloating and gassiness, and altered bowel habits(alternate constipation and loose stools).
Avatar n tn I'm a 26 year old female, and I am struggling to figure out whether or not I should wait for an appointment the day after tomorrow at my GP or return to the ER (uninsured for another month) Last friday I went to the ER for extreme pain on my left lower flank-- that pain lasted from 7:30 in the morning until 6 at night. They took a urine sample and said there was blood in it, but not a lot and it was probably just a stone.
554628 tn?1362781519 Hi, nausea, headache and kidney pain can be related with nephropathy (kidney disorder), urine test and blood urea and creatinine are usually done for diagnosis. Kidney stones do cause similar kind of symptoms; ultrasound is quite diagnostic for stones.
Avatar f tn It took a few hours but finally (after a CT scan) they figured out that i've got 2 kidney stones. One was still in my kidney and the other blocked my kidney from releasing into the bladder I was told...which I guess is where all the pain was coming from. They gave me dilaudid for pretty much the entire first day and then the pain went away on my right side so they stopped giving it to me. I left the next afternoon but was horribly cranky that entire night.
Avatar n tn It was when this happened that I began to suspect that maybe it wasn't an infection, but a kidney stone - or recurring kidney stones. When the chronic constipation started a year ago, I also began to have difficulty peeing. I have to strain sometimes to get it to come out. The pee is really clear, like 99% of the time. It has no color. And when I'm done peeing, at the bottom of the toilet there is always what looks like green "dust". It always sinks to the very bottom.
Avatar n tn He sent me for a CT scan to check for kidney stones and this came back normal and no signs of infection were found in the urine. I am supposed to go back in a week for another urinalysis to check for blood. Since I saw the doctor, I have been passing white pieces of tissue in my urine intermittently. These range in size from a speck to about the size of a dime. They are white, except for one was pink and white. I am not on my period, but it is due in the next week or so.
Avatar f tn Found out I have kidney stones. Now suffering from kidney stones, mental confusion, lack of motivation (mild depression), heart palpitations, dizziness/faint feeling. My urine calcium is 416, my blood calcium is 10.2, and my PTH is 23. Wondering if I have hyperparathyroidism? My urologist put me on thiazide and wants me to watch sodium intake-I'm not a salt person anyway so this is easy. My blood pressure seems to be creeping up a bit as well. I would appreciate any help!
Avatar f tn Drink lots of warm water, and do kapalbhati pranayam for more than 20 minutes, twice a day. In a few weeks, the kidney stones will be flushed out. After the stones are out, let me know what other benefits you noticed, and I will suggest some techniques to stimulate the thyroid and parathyroid. Kapalbhati pranayam -(Do it before eating) Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute. Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second.
Avatar n tn Does any of my symptoms sound like kidney stones? Or is these 2 doctors mistaking the side effects of Cipro for the symptoms of kidney stones?
Avatar n tn The pain has virtually subsided, but the fatigue is debilitating. Two friends described their experiences with kidney stones as similar--has anyone experienced the same? Does anything help? I have heard water and beer help a kidney stone pass, but is that only once it's descended? I'm not really in pain, so my doctor thinks it may have shifted around in the kidney (she thinks my symptoms are something else). Anyway.
Avatar n tn I've had kidney stones twice. First time I had severe pain in one of my kidneys. Second time I didn't know I had kidney stones until I was urinating blood. Then the pain set in. Not fun either time.
Avatar f tn I've been having a lot of pain on my right side, front, back and side and the pain takes my breath away. I had CT scans and ultra sound to determine if I had kidney stones. Then they sent me for x-rays with contrast and I was told I had a floating Kidney. The nurse for his office said there was nothing that I could do for the pain. "Just deal with it". Wow how can I when the pain takes my breath away and the pain is so bad that I have to lay down in bed until it goes away.
Avatar f tn Have you been checked for anything besides kidney infections? Like possibly a kidney stone. Do you have any blood in your urine? Do you have any other symptoms. For example - fatigue, body pain, sleep problems or anything out of the ordinary?
Avatar n tn Hematuria or blood in the urine may be due to stones, infection, cancer/tumor, or kidney disease. IVP and cystoscopy are usually done to evaluate both the upper and lower urinary tracts respectively. On the other hand, proteinuria or abnormal amount of protein in the urine occurs when the filter unit of the kidney or glomerulus is damaged. There are also many conditions that may lead to this. It is best that we wait for the results of the tests done for proper diagnosis.
Avatar n tn Musculoskeletal pain typically gets worse with movement, and is relieved by heat or massage. Common causes of kidney pain include kidney stones, kidney infection or pyelonephritis, and any bleeding within the kidney from injury or otherwise, where the blood supply is suddenly cut off because of blockage of the artery to the kidney. It would be best to have it evaluated by your doctor. Ultrasound or xray may be done to better visualize the structures. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Should some of these enter the blood stream, the ONLY other organ that comes to the rescue is the kidney, that constantly filters the blood and this explains the dehydration, as the kidney now is working overtime filtering out the toxins using extra water. Water is the best detoxifying agent! Also another function of the kidneys is water regulation. When chronic conditions cause the kidney to overwork, kidney dysfunction is inevitable.
Avatar f tn I know how you feel, although I haven't had spasms everyday, I have experienced them on occasion. It is worse than kidney stones. Undescribible pain!! It could be a number of things. Your kidney could be floating, you could have hydronephrosis, your renal artery could be obstructed and the blood supply is cut off intermittantly, and of coarse the old kidney stone is a possiblity. You really need some test done to see what is going on. I know how hard it is to find a good urologist.
Avatar f tn Do you know if a link has been established between Medullary Sponge Kidney and fatigue? I have both MSK and chronic fatigue, and I have seen a few people mention exhaustion in the MSK threads. It seems plausible, given that MSK reduces kidney functioning. Any info would be appreciated!
Avatar f tn OH, and I have been taking topamax for migranes, which I just found out I should have never, ever been prescribed, as it causes kidney stones. Anyone with kidney problems should never take the drug. So, now I am weaning off of that as well. Thanks for any thoughts.
Avatar f tn // Here is some information on kidney stones in general Do you receive treatment for the stones?
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with Celiac disease, gall stones (gall bladder removed), kidney stones, mole removed and diagnosed as a spitz tumor (getting second opinion). The past 2 years I have been very fatigued and had this intermittent chest pain. The pain in my chest is deep and most times is a dull pain and lasts between an hour. To try and diagnose myself I have tried taking antacids and they did not help. I have also tried homeopathic medication for anxiety and these do not help either.
Avatar f tn Can there be other simple ways to pass out kidney stones? I am afraid to feel the pain.
Avatar f tn however, you can be at risk for toxicity (weak muscles, weak bones, excessive bleeding, and kidney stones) if you consume supplementation plus large amounts of fortified milk / dairy products and fish. Vitamin D is available through our foods - Fortified milk, breakfast cereals, egg yolks, fatty fish, fish oils, and the sun. Sit at a window with the sun shining in for about 1/2 hour (few times a week) and that will help you get enough Vitamin D.
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 m tn You name it, it goes numb at some point. Besides numbness other symptoms are kidney stones and pain, tremors, fatigue, and the never ending ringing in my ear. I have been seeing a neurologist since my brother and sister both have ms and have gotten MRI done. They have found lesions on my brain but none are active. Original neuro found six and 2 yrs later different neuro found 14.
1936411 tn?1333835449 For me, it's a never ending cycle of coffee and naps. (Add in some water too, or we can add kidney stones to the long list of miseries!

Avatar n tn Since then Ive had steadily increasing EXTREME fatigue and pain (though not as strong of pain as friday), nausea, low fever and very severe "brain fog"... While I've had abdominal pain and slowly increasing fatigue for the last two years, it's never been this bad, and the usual suspects for that kind of thing didn't check out when I saw my GP. The doctor at the ER said it could be a kidney infection, but it didnt look like there was enough blood for it...
