Avatar m tn The only places you should feel any pain at all from the kidney stones, is in the ureters, if you're female. (the ureters are the tubes that carry your urine from the kidneys to the bladder). In Females, once the stone(s) reach the bladder, it should be no pain at all, and it doesn't take long at all for the stones to pass when you urinate, the stones will be carried out of the bladder, through the urethra.
Avatar n tn Up to 20% of adults with kidney stones may have medullary sponge kidney; the corresponding figure in children is unknown. Among patients with kidney stones, hypercalciuria may occur in 40-50%, and recurrent gross hematuria may occur in 10-20%. Although no evidence indicates that risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs) is higher in patients with medullary sponge kidney, up to 5% of males and 35% of females have a UTI.
Avatar m tn I was booked into hospital and CT scans were conducted and any signs of kidney stones were ruled out as I have suffered on two occasions with kidney stones over 2 years ago. Also blood work was done and results came back fine. My appetite is normal and sometimes I have the slight runs.
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 n tn It is either a vibration or a sensation of filling up with liquid. No other symptoms are there. No pain in urination, no pain in sex, have been married for many years with one partner, and no urge to go to the bathroom. It happens randomly, and lasts for 3-6 seconds then goes away. It is irritating but not painful. Any thoughts on this issue would be helpful.
Avatar n tn I just had that happen to me about a week ago. I went in for possibly kidney stones (runs in all the females in the family) found blood in my urine, and the ct scan came back normal. The doc just said that maybe the stone was too small to be picked up in the scan. I even felt a very small stone pass through my abdomin...
Avatar n tn Sometimes it seems that it comes on later in the afternoon almost routine and then it sometimes happens out of the blue in the morning. I try to change my underwear twice a day and don't wear any underwear at nigh for bed. I'm not sure what triggers this...I know about 2.5 years ago I got a really nasty vaginal infection..Then it was treated and I've been tested for STD's all negative. I sometimes wonder if it came from the boyfriend at that time.
Avatar n tn I have muscle spasm in or around the ribs on both sides (in the front under the breast and sometimes in the back at the same horizontal position), it feels like a ball rolling, in that it switches sides. It occurs even at night during sleep, painful enough to wake me. I only know that when I relax and stretch (the side where the knot is) using several positions I have to wait till it goes away, in many cases to have it return in other places described above.
Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
1939607 tn?1324292900 Pain and discomfort on the lower left side of abdomen just below and to the left of navel can be due to several causes such as Crohn’s disease, colitis, diverticulitis, infection in kidney, kidney stones, adhesions, polycystic ovary in females, IBS, constipation, and an abscess in rectus abdominis muscle or psoas muscle. Since you do not have a lump or a tender hot spot, in all probability it is not a muscle.
Avatar f tn Most common cause is stones in kidney which is blocking urine pathway and it has been ruled out in your case. Other causes are changing sexual partners frequently, pregnancy, diabetes and of course childhood infections. The urine can also be due to retention of urine anywhere in its flow due t obstruction. The obstruction can be due to abnormality of structures since birth, stones or diseases like tumors. Females are more prone to urine infections. In females, short urethra may also cause UTI.
Avatar n tn I don't have any symptoms yet, except for my period being early once in a while. I am 44 years old, and have gone, in 2 weeks, from having 44 year old skin to skin of a 60 year old. Could someone please help? I'm very distressed.
Avatar m tn Other issues and symptoms Kidney stones (4 mm calcium oxalate stone passed on 9/1; after that I had renal ultrasound showing 4 more in left kidney measuring 8 mm, 2x9mm, and 10mm--still there now). In my 24 hr urine collection test, I had low fluid intake--was concerned about not having enough room in container (4 cans of diet ginger ale--about 1.5L and still had high output of 2.3). That was after I had to repeat 24 hr collection for not refrigerating--and the first time I had 3.
213044 tn?1236531060 What comes to thought if all other things are ruled out is that you may be producing kidney stones that are URIC ACID in nature vs. what most of us stone people make (calcium oxalate) AND this type of stone is TRANSPARENT and will NOT show up on an ultrasound ... Spiral CT w/o contrast is best for kidney stones and will pick up the smallest stones. An IVP X Ray with contrast shows all sorts of things all thru the kidney down to the exit area!
Avatar n tn Hi, Hematuria occurs in cases of kidney stones, infections, cancer of the bladder and prostate, and sometimes without any cause. Do you also experience any burning sensation while passing urine? If your physician has asked you to take the ciprofloxacin, you can go ahead and start the course of antibiotic, keeping in mind that you need to complete the whole course (5-7 days) once you start treatment.
931217 tn?1283484935 Neutering involves removing the source of the hormones that control reproduction and that determine the typical physical and behavioral characteristics that distinguish males and females. In dogs and cats, this is usually done by surgically removing the testicles in males (castration) and the ovaries in females (spaying). In the United States, the uterus is typically removed along with the ovaries in females, and virtually all dogs and cats are spayed or castrated.
Avatar f tn Take note of whether the pain is related to eating, sleeping, bowel movements, flatulence (passing gas), movement or menstrual cycle in females. The list of causes of left side abdominal pain are listed below are arranged in order from the upper abdomen (above the navel) to lower abdomen (below the navel).

12980073 tn?1429819661 The extra fluids given during the anaesthetic is proper protocol in unwell dogs w/kidney issues, but NOT used in young, healthy dogs!! So, why did they do this if the bloodwork was fine???? The specific blood test for the spay surgery is designed for Kidney & Liver function before a surgery, but it was stated that that bloodwork was good at this point.....Yet, fluids were given during the spay!! Why????
1408746 tn?1283678948 [1][2] The name derives from the fact that, in the sagittal view, the SMA and AA (with some imagination) appear to be a nutcracker crushing a nut (the renal vein). I was originally Diagnosed with Pelvic Congestion after complaining for many years of Chronic pelvic pain, left sided flank pain, lower back, and lower limbs. My husband and I were also trying to conceive for 6 years and all the doctors could tell me was that I had a great looking uterus.
670955 tn?1226601500 Also called 'triple phosphate'(magnesium ammonium phosphate) are the most commonly seen with urinary tract infections and most frequently seen in females. These type of crystals are seen in young dogs (under a year) or in middle aged or older dogs. Struvites are almost always accompanied by bacteria that create a high alkaline pH. In cats, struvite stones form in the absence of a bladder infection.
Avatar m tn The reason they give is that the plant contains a high concentration of nucleic acids, substances related to DNA. When these are metabolized, they create uric acid, which could cause gout or kidney stones. This is of special concern to those who have already had uric acid stones or attacks of gout. The safety of spirulina in pregnant and nursing women, young children, and individuals with kidney or liver disease has not been determined.
Avatar n tn Struvite Crystals are very common in neutered male cats. Rare in females, but they can occur. Ph balance is vital in a cats diet, so as to help prevent Struvite crystals from developing. The superior cat food I've found is Prescription and not cheap, however it comes in wet and dry formulas and if you use this the chance of recurrence in your little boy is lessened tremendously.

Avatar n tn symptoms were exacerbated because of the low iron. It is very common in menstruating females, I was told by a doctor, to have iron deficiency. Also, because of the issue with the kidneys making erythropoietin, a hormone involved in the production of red blood cells, did you find if your red blood cells (RBCs) were in normal range? Have they tested your thyroid function? I'm glad you are finding benefit from the medication you are taking and that you seem to have adjusted to it.
Avatar m tn Your symptoms sound a lot like nutritional deficiencies such as iron deficiency. This is common in females more than males, but also in Celiac disease (spelled Coeliac if you are British). I was in a terrible state after I got my gallbladder out. I was deficient in magnesium and iron and vitamin D. I just figured out that I was also suffering from loss of bile due to having had my gallbladder out and only figured out how bad this was because I developed psoriasis.
748543 tn?1463449675 TMJ' as it is wrongly called by many) is easy to treat and self-manage or that it may all be in the patient's mind. The sources in the article stated that, "TMJ problems were originally thought to be caused by dental Malocclusion but that this was an infrequent cause of the problem". The American Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), an organization of some 40,000 of the nation's leading dentist, recognizes the relationship between maloclussion and headaches.
Avatar n tn seriously, many of you sound like you're passing kidney stones. if you have blood in your urine but no signs of infection (negative for bacteria, no fever, etc) but you have abdominal or back pain and even nausea or vomiting, you probably have kidney stones. i'm 28, having my first, and it's no picnic. i was lucky and my dr. ordered a CT scan, which definitely showed a kidney stone. but some tests for some people will not show a stone (especially x-rays and ultrasounds).
181575 tn?1250202386 Combination therapy (CT) using telbivudine plus lamivudine and monotherapy (MT) using telbivudine alone in a 2005 comparison of 104 patients did not show a difference in effectiveness. 5.
