Avatar f tn What are the symptoms for an Crohn's disease? Can it lead to any kinda complication like Arthritis? Anyone can explain it precisely?
501944 tn?1224059621 I have had Crohn's disease for about 3 years and I am having problems with vomiting and I don't know what to do!! If you have any advice please help, I feel lost! I have some problems swallowing and I frequently feel like there is something in my throat ready to come up. I was vomiting almost every night for about two weeks I then felt a little better and it only occurred every couple of days. Well right now I can't hold anything down. I'm afraid to eat, but I am hungry.
Avatar m tn 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. It can also be due to a STD, may not have started with it, but may have caught in between if you are now sexually active. Non specific bacterial infection or fungal infection can also cause recurrent UTI.
Avatar n tn My question is this, during flares I expell huge amounts of Uric Acid Crystals in my Urine which always end in the formation of Uric Acid Stones. So far no answer has been given as to why this happens other than the reuptake of Red Blood cells from internal bleeding. I have tried all the usual kidney stone medications and none help during these periods. The crystals are quite large and visable to the naked eye. It feels like I am passing glass.
Avatar n tn The use of magnesium oxide or magnesium citrate is known to help in the treatment of patients with calcium oxalate stones. Second is the issue of your right non-functional kidney. In Crohn's patients the predominant area of involvement of inflammation is in the terminal ileum. This is at the end of the small intestine and just before the beginning of the large intestine.
Avatar n tn I am 42 years old and have Crohn's disease, diagnosed in 1998, and am wondering if the kidney stones I am having, could be a result of of something more serious going on. I have had a 9mm kidney stone removed with a basket extraction, in April 2008, from my left ureteral and a 10-12mm stone crushed, in May 2008. My x-rays, a year ago, showed that I have multiple renal calculi. I have been under a urologist care for a year.
Avatar n tn Because of the location of the pain, it was originally thought that I was suffering from kidney stones. The kidney, gallbladder, pancreas, and liver have been ruled out as the cause. About 2 1/2 years ago I was evaluated by an obgyn. A scope was performed and adhesions were discovered attached to my bowel. Please note that I had a hysterecomy about 11 years ago. I still have 1 ovary (left side). The ovary was fine and left intact. In the beginning, the episodes would last a few weeks.
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 n tn I'm 26 years old, female. Family history of gallbladder disease without stones includes father, both grandmothers. GI prescribes reglan, prilosec - no relief. GI then sends me to a surgeon for laparoscopic cholocystectomy with a liver biopsy. Surgeon agrees and schedules. Insurance stops surgery, says they won't pay if no stones or significant physical disfunction are found at time of surgery. Have gotten third opinion that says to do cholocystectomy. Should I risk the surgery?
Avatar m tn Intestines are now clear of disease, but stomache and esphogus are not and show swelling and scarring. Kidney Stones - 100% Uric Acid Stones along with sediment in urine. It's like urinating and passing red sand. It is incredibly painfull. And last but not least memory loss.
Avatar f tn 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. For oxalate stones you need to restrict (not totally stop) foods which are high in oxalate like beans, legumes, dark green leaves, egg plant, spinach, beets, chocolates, wheat barn, rhubarb and nuts and fruit cake. Avoid Vitamin C as its metabolism produces oxalates in the body.
Avatar m tn have your doctor do some blood work to make sure that it's not a kidney problem. They usually show up in blood work. Also dehydration can cause kidney problems. and if your kidneys hurt is' the lower back where it's going to show. Figure out how much water you drink in a day (vs. when you have a beer etc.) and any other medical conditions you might have. (And dude, you are 26 years old, what is up with you typing like a 12 year old??
Avatar n tn In 2005, I was diagnosed with Medullary Sponge Kidney (both of them) after two separate episodes of gross Haematuria. About a year later I began experiencing headaches, fluid retention in my ankles, feeling very tired, not being able to remember things, constipation/diarrhea and a lot of abdominal pain that usually results in extreme bloating in my stomach. My stomach can bloat so much I look like I'm in early stages of pregnancy. When my PC doctor presses on my belly it's extremely painful.
Avatar n tn old boy (my baby) was just diagnosed with Crohns Disease a month ago and I am experiencing pain worse than childbirth and kidney stones combined. I am an RN and a little knowledge can kill someone. MY son is actually fairly well and has been with his grandmother the past several weeks. I noticed that he was barely growing and one abnormal test result let to another, led to another and Crohn's is the dx. I kept crying everytime I looked at him, so it's actually good he's away now.

But changes can be found with Celiac disease in the small intestine so it's very hard to know without having test results to look at and tissue samples to examine. So I'm glad you're gathering all the information and having it reviewed. That's important. I hope she continues to improve uneventfully.
Avatar f tn There are numerous causes of right lower quadrant abdominal pain, of varying levels of severity. These include appendicitis, mesenteric adenitis, ileitis (e.g., Crohn's), colitis, kidney stones, kidney infection, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, ovarian cyst, ovarian torsion, ectopic pregnancy, pelvic inflammatory disease, hernia, and/or cancer. You should see your doctor, as proper diagnosis depends upon clinical history, physical examination, and laboratory and/or imaging tests.
Avatar f tn 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. Diet high in animal fiber, dehydration, and low calcium intake can also cause recurrence of stones. Please discuss these possibilities with your doctor and see if you suffer from any of these disorders. Treating these would help reduce pain.
Avatar n tn Fever, abdominal pain, weight loss, diarrhea, arthritis, and night sweats can be sympoms of Crohn's disease. Crohn's disease can cause fat malabsorption because bile acids, necessary for absorption, are lost due to disease of the terminal ileum. Fat malabsorption predisposes patients to increased oxalate absoprtion from the gut leading to oxalate kidney stones. The B-12 deficiency could also be the result of Crohn's disease of the small intestine.
Avatar n tn My only positive lab results are a fecal fat showing malabsorption , oxolate levels double the normal which has lead to a total of 30 kidney stones in the past 7 months (4 removed surgically as well as uretal stents) , also a low B-12. 8 months ago I lost 60 pounds and have struggled to gain about 15 back but now that I am out of pain pills I am losing again (I have never been overweight and am at least 25 pounds underweight).
Avatar n tn You need to consult a doctor to rule out appendicitis, kidney stones, diverticulitis, crohn's disease, pelvic inflammatory disease etc. The further plan of management would involve - '-Blood tests including full blood count, electrolytes, urea, creatinine, liver function tests, pregnancy test and lipase.

Avatar n tn Biliary colic or Gallstones Cholecystitis or inflammation of the gallbladder Duodenal ulcers Kidney Stones / ureteric stones Appendicitis Ovarian cyst Ectopic pregnancy Constipation Pulled muscle Trapped wind Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis and right lower lobe pneumonia, strangulated or obstructed hernia, polycystic ovaries, food poisoning, are other common causes of pain in the right side of the abdomen.
Avatar f tn 1 year later I was rushed to the ER w/the worst pain ever... kidney stones, then came the kidney infections. In 3 years I've passed almost 30 or more kidney stones & there hasn't been a month since 2010 that I havent had a kidney infection or uti. I have been on so many different antibiotics & many many rounds of them. In 2013 I had my gallbladder out, it was functioning at 13%, the thought was maybe it was partly the cause of my pain, nope it really didnt help.
Avatar n tn I just found out last week when I ended up in the ER that I had kidney stones. One was 4MM and the other 5MM. The surgeon put in a stent and I was told it was to keep the stones in the kidney. A couple of days later and two more times in the ER for severe pain I was told that I passed one of the stones. The sad thing is that I still have one of the stones in my bladder and it is the larger one. Is there anything they can do? I am so tired of pain.

Avatar n tn I, too, have a dent in the top front part of my head that I first noticed a few months ago. I am a 44-year-old female. I have not had headaches, hair loss or any sensitivity. It is just noticeable when I comb my hair. I do wear my sunglasses on my head often - way too often! I have always had issues related to calcium in my body (kidney stones & bad teeth that break easily). I've never really been tested - something that I should do now that I know. Thanks for all the posts.
Avatar f tn Gallstones, kidney stones, a pulled muscle, Crohn's disease, even a possible hernia to name a few. Best that he see his doctor for a thorough examination. Your husband should also take care to not let his glucose level get to 350, as levels in this range can be troublesome. Hope everything works out for the best.
