I am 5'3" and 106 lbs i developed an alergy to milk and egg products, have been peeing white hard balls of stuff out and had numerous trips to the hospital. The doctors here just tell me they don't know what's wrong and basically gave up on me.. can this be harmful for the baby?
Avatar f tn Because I have not long ago written about kidney stones in reply to another question in this forum, I am pasting what I wrote below so that you will know what to look out for. The kidney stone will cause you problems with urinary infections as it moves, or travels down. This is because it scratches as it moves and then when bacteria enters the wounds, infection sets in.
Avatar f tn I read that some hyperthyroid people have problems with kidney stones because of the calcium issues we have. Anyone have any info on this?? I ask because I just spent a very early morning in the Emergency Room to find out I have a 9 mm kidney stone that just won't pass.
Avatar n tn hello there dot. i just wanted to say that in my case of kidney stones no i didnt experience any of thosw things.
Avatar f tn I'm so sorry that he is having this much discomfort form his Post-op Kidney Stones. I've never had Kidney Stones. However, if they made an incision of any kind, chances are that he isn't supposed to be in a bath tub. Usually they aren't allowed to get that area wet. PLEASE don't laugh TOO loudly at me IF there is no incision as I must emphasize that I DON'T havae a clue as to how they are removed.
Avatar n tn Just sharing some info that I got from another forum. Lemon juice, olive oil, and chanca piedra are the most common remedies to flush out kidney stones. You can Google them for more information.
1028300 tn?1252093974 I have kidney stones and will have to have a stint put in and changed every month. The Dr. said that I could have Kidney failure or contractions if I don't have the stint put in, but I've heard the stint is very painful, sometimes more painful than just having the kidney stone! He sent me home with phenegran and demerol, and said this would not hurt the baby. Does anyone have any experience/knowledge about kidney stones while pregnant?
Avatar f tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Yes, possibility of kidney stones with urinary infection is high. Strong ammonia smell is due to protein breakdown. So cut down on proteins. Give a urine sample for testing. Consult an urologist with ultrasound scan. Meanwhile also consult a gynecologist regarding the spotting.
Avatar f tn Has she had a CT Scan w/o contrast in regard to the stones? What has it shown? I have an uncommon kidney condition called MSK (Medullary Sponge Kidney) along with having had out 1/2 my thryoid bcz of nodules that were atpical but my parathyroids were fine and all tests were A-OK that both my Uro and Endo have run inc. a 24hr urine test. Has your daughter had a 24hr urine test? That is important too.
Avatar m tn I have 7 kidney stones in my left kidney and one in the right. PSA is 6.3. Can the stones be some of the cause?

Avatar n tn But i do have 1 question. Does anyone know if this can lead to increased chance of Kidney Stones? I dont have any kidney stone issues, but I just wanted to see if anyone knows if Phosphaturia can lead to any kidney issues. Thanks!
Avatar n tn I am 31 year old female and diagnosed with Hypothyroid when i was 20 and Hashimotos about 5 years ago. This past April I began to suffer from kidney stones and had surgery for removal. Just six months later I am experiencing some pain in my kidneys again. I have been doing reserach on the Parathyroid and have read that there may be a correlation with kindey stones and thyroid issues. Any feedback or websites would be very helpful!
Avatar m tn Recurrent kidney infection can be due to diabetes, some anomaly or defect in the kidney or due to the organisms developing antibiotic resistance. Recurrent kidney stones are found renal tubular acidosis, medullary sponge kidney, Dent's disease (genetic disease of the kidney), hyperparathyroidism, primary hyperoxaluria and Crohn's disease. Since the pain comes before periods too, it can also be due to endometriosis.
Avatar m tn I am a 24 yr old who has suffered from kidney problems for almost 5 years, 2 surgerys a UPJ obstruction multiple stents.

1301089 tn?1290670171 I know this probably isn't the best forum for this but I know all of you and trust you. Also, others have posted about kidney stones here in the past. I have a terrible pain on my right flank. I wake up with it and it only gets worse as the day wears on. It is going on a week now. I've been more nauseated than usual. I also have more severe pain in the bladder and groin area. My Lortab aren't even touching this. I am still on my feet but just barely.. I drink lots of water.
Avatar m tn Hi need some help I recently had kidney stones did a ultasound and there were two stones in my kidney and one in my tube leading from the kidneys. I had a white discharge one morning and the following night I saw a slight yellow green discharge from my penis I went to the doctor who gave me antibiotics.
Avatar n tn If indeed you have chronic pain as suggested I encourage you to seek treatment that will at least allow you to be more comfortable. You may want to request a referral to a PMP. If they find a diagnosis at a later date you can always discontinue pain management therapy. At the least you deserve to be comfortable. Please let us know how you are doing. I also encourage you to respond to other posts and be active in our community.
Avatar f tn I have a kidney disease which causes me to pass several kidney stones a month. Not only do I have the pain when passing a stone but due to the disease have constant chronic pain even when not passing a stone. My pain specialist, nephrologist and primary physician have me taking 2-15mg MS Contin and 4-7.5/325mg Percocet daily along with up to 4-50mg Demerol when needed for more severe pain. I've been taking these medications for approximately 6 plus years.
1028300 tn?1252093974 I am almost 18 weeks pregnant and have kidney stones! They are supposed to be putting a stint in next Wed. The Dr. said that I might have complications such as kidney failure or contractions if I DON'T put the stint in, but I have heard that the stint is VERY painful, sometimes more so than just having kidney stones! He will change the stint every month until the stone(s) pass or the end of the pregnancy.The Dr. gave me phenegren and demerol for the pain. I am scared!
Avatar f tn With the low complement, is it safe to assume this is NOT stones? How could it be stones if her urine is only showing pre-cursor to stones? We don't go back for several weeks, as he is buying us time to decide on the biopsy while we wait for the immune tests as well. Also, can she be vaccinated with low complement? Are there any risks to her taking probiotics? Thanks!
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 f tn This is my first time making a posting here, I found this website while doing searches on kidney stones. I guess I am looking for advice or any feedback at all - anyone else my age experiencing such discomfort with stones? Please read. I'm 26 years old and I have been suffering from multiple stones in both kidneys for quite some time. Since December I have had 3 CT Scans, numerous x-rays, ultrasounds, urine tests, bloodwork, and lithotripy during my multiple trips to the ER.
230262 tn?1316649534 Hello Ohio, It's great to hear from you again. You were missed!! I've had kidney stones on and off since I was thirty. My brother had his first kidney stones in his early twenties. So rest assured it's not just age. :o) I know how very painful moving kidney stones can be. Have you been to ER? What did you discover? I'll forward to hearing from you.....and hope that everything went well at ER. Or at the very least your pain is controlled or ended.
Avatar m tn I to have a history of stones & even dealt with one stuck in my urethra for 5 months ( i was still getting my fix of hydro so why bother) until i got a Major infection, as u should know being in the medical field as well, so i had zero choice to have 2 surgeries in 1 week. Congrats to 16 months clean, thats awesome & what i'am striving for ( i'am only at 29 days ) but being in the medical field u know sometimes u might just need them.
