Kidney stones in bladder symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones in bladder symptoms


Avatar f tn Hi, Kidney stones often do not cause any symptoms. Usually, there is extreme pain, which begins suddenly when a stone moves in the urinary tract and blocks the flow of urine.If the stone is too large to pass easily, pain continues as the muscles in the wall of the narrow ureter try to squeeze the stone into the bladder. As the stone moves and the body tries to push it out, blood may appear in the urine, making the urine reddish.
Avatar n tn I have had numerous kidney infections and stones over the past few years. I had a stent recently put in because of a narrowing at the UPJ. I am having alot of pain from the stent. My Uro. said before he put the stent in that I would be able to resume a normal life while the stent is in place. I have frequency, I have to go about 30 times in a 24 hr. period and I am taking ditropan xl 5mg. I am also on pryidium plus 2x's a day.
Avatar f tn The stent will make my ureter larger so the doctor can remove the stones in 10-14 days. In the meantime I'm having horrible pain in what feels like my bladder. Is what's being done with me standard protocol? Is it normally this painful? Does this mean kidney stones I pass hurt more then other people's kidney stones with larger ureters? I was never told that this could be the outcome of my surgery and that I would need subsequent surgery to get rid of these stones.
Avatar m tn i have been to see my gp a month ago with kidney stones, painfull cramps ,the pain has gone but im passing alot of blood when i urinate and it also stings when i urinate which is about 20 times a day im male and 29 years old any help please
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 Be aware of any symptoms of urinary infections (pain or blood in urinating, pain in your kidney area, bladder, cloudy, dark or smelly urine) so that you can get your urine analysed and given the appropriate antibiotic if required. Formation of kidney stones is increased when the body is dehydrated. Some stones form from lots of kidney infections and cysteine stones are hereditary. So do make sure that you never get dehydrated and drink plenty of water.
Avatar f tn pain in the left side of my back at my waist line. Pain in my bladder, and pain going down the front of my left thigh. How long should this pain last? It has already been over 1 week.
Avatar f tn You could have an obstruction or an infection in the kidney. I was quite close to dying from kidney failure when I was given the wrong antibiotics to take. This is nothing to mess around with. Please go to the ER, see a urologist, GP or urgent care.
Avatar f tn Urologist performed cystocopy (normal), ultrasound (normal with R kidney hydronephrosis), CT scan showed no hydronephrosis but two 2mm non obstructing LEFT kidney stones. I keep having symptoms of what feels like uti that subsides with drinking a lot of water. Macrobid removes all symptoms while i'm on it but they return 2 days after I stop taking them. I don't have any other symptoms, the pain I usually feel is bladder discomfort and pain in urethra, some burning and urgency.
503291 tn?1229423121 I'm in a similar stage of things, myself (ultrasound results came back today -- "several" stones, but I've no clue of exact numbers nor size, and the gallbladder itself apparently is a wee bit tattered from the passage of earlier stones, but nothing terribly horrid; my GP is hooking me up with a specialist in the next few days/weeks for the next step) and as far as I can tell, there's four primary methods.

Avatar m tn So i went to a eregular doc last tuesday and they did see the 'seeds'. They said it was either kidney or bladder stones(second most common kind). Meanwhile i starred to have pain in the lymph nodes in the groin region, some testicular pain, and minor nausea and light headiness off and on. I have an appy with a P.A at a urology clinic tuesday. I have not past any stones since wed. and they pain while urinating has gotten better, but I am still have all the other symptoms.
Avatar n tn Renal CT scan showed 1 mm stone in right kidney, 2 even smaller stones in left kidney. Was given hydrocodone for pain and phenagren in case pain meds cause nausea and told to see a urologist asap. My question is, if the stones are still in my kidneys how can they be causing all the lower abdominal pain and pressure. This pain is worse after I walk much, and when my bladder is getting full before I urinate. Urination does NOT hurt though. I have had no fever at all.
Avatar n tn I had a confirmed UTI in mid September. 5 days ago (Sat), I began symptoms again---extreme pain while urinating & difficulty emptying my bladder. Next day (Sun), I go to Urgent Care who takes a urine sample & says I have a UTI, gives me Cipro 500mb BID & sends me home. By Mon morning, the burning is unbearable & I see my gynecologist nurse practitioner. She swabs my vagina & takes another urine sample.
Avatar f tn definitely could be stones. i had 1 and mu hubby had them 2x.
409451 tn?1206900232 I feel like I'm sitting sitting on glass before my period and a little into it so I always know when I am going to get my flow. Endo and kidney stones can cause bladder problems however endo doesn't produce blood in your urine not that I have heard of anyway but don't quote me on that. Most cases when there is blood in your urine is when you have a uti or kidney stones.

Avatar m tn Ureteroscopic stone removal Urologists perform ureteroscopic stone removal to remove stones lodged in the ureter or in the kidney. Patients undergo this outpatient procedure while sedated with general or local anesthesia. A urologic surgeon passes a small ureteroscope into the urethra, through the bladder into the ureter to break up and snare the stone. In some cases, stones are shattered using a laser. Fragments may be passed by the patient or they may be extracted.
Avatar n tn I have never had these before but during the IBS in my twenties, I also had recurring bladder infections, one of which turned into a bad kidney infection...and the stone is in that same kidney. The weird thing is, I didn't really start having much pain in the kidney area until a few days ago, and this has been going on for several months now. My GI doctor put me on Bentyl and it has seemed to help a bit until I had another episode this morning.
Avatar f tn In that recent issue I mentioned in this post where I had three stones, two were still in my right kidney and one had already passed into my bladder. The two in my right kidney were what was causing me all the pain and discomfort and the one in the bladder wasn't causing me any pain or discomfort at all.The one in the bladder that had already passed through my right kidney was 2.5mm in size and had been in my bladder for about a month at that point and still hadn't passed out yet.
Avatar m tn I just had a CT scan to check for kidney stones and I was told that I had none visible but that it did show that I had gallstones. All of my symptoms point to kidney stones, not gallstones. My pain is on the left side and severe nausea that is getting worse even though the pain has lessened in the last 24 hours. My doctor ordered the CT scan since I have a history of kidney stones. Can a CT scan miss the stones?
Avatar n tn Hi, This could be an infection in the kidneys or kidney stones too. UTI or urinary tract infection is due to undue growth of microbes in the urinary pathway. This may be caused by spread of infection from a nidus of infection in the tract, from blood or from some other adjacent infectious tissue. Bladder infection may result in symptoms of urination, frequency urgency etc with fever and lower abdominal pain.
Avatar f tn The doctor can arrange for a blood test to check her kidney function and also send your daughter for a ultrasound scan and referral to a urologist if there is a problem still with the kidney or confirmation of a kidney stone. Stones can be extremely small like a grain of sand or much bigger. But they do cause pain and discomfort when they start to move and can cause recurrent kidney infections as they damage the inside of the urinary tubes as they move.
Avatar f tn In February I underwent two surgeries to get rid of 10 stones. Stones sitting in your kidney can cause kidney infections. Your best bet is to see the urologist and take care of those stones. Good luck to you!
Avatar n tn Hello, If the ultrasound scans have shown some problem with the kidney then you should get kidney function tests done to rule out kidney causes which seem to be responsible for all your symptoms. My sincere advice is to consult a nephrologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar n tn This refers to a kidney infection, usually from bacteria that have spread from the bladder. Your right kidney could be swollen due to pyelonephritis or hydronephrosis secondary to obstruction in the ureter. Hydronephrosis is a condition when the kidney swells up as there is an obstruction in the flow of urine.
