Kidney stones in young women

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones in young women


Avatar n tn Thickened endometrium us usually not a problem in young, ovulating women, and is probably OK to wait for the repeat ultrasound scan. Thickened endometrium would be a problem in a postmenopausal woman. The adnexal cyst would likely be an ovarian cyst resulting from the development of an egg on that ovary, also normal, as long as it remains under 5 centimeters in size. (Over 5cm and they are at risk for twisting on themselves and causing pain).
409451 tn?1206900232 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. The next step for you since your pap came back normal and the fact that your dad had kidney stone problems, is ask your doc to do blood work and see if there is any abnormalities in your blood work that will show if your kidneys are functioning right.
Avatar n tn Called an ambulance, said it sounded like kidney stones. Took an ambulance, plane and another ambulance to a hospital in the city-I live in the jungle in Costa Rica. The x-rays and ultrasound show a kidney stone. On the other side it also shows some white spots that may be calcium or other small stones. The doctor said the diarreah was unrelated. I stayed in the hospital overnight-no diarreah. Came home yeaterday and last night severe diarreah all night again.
Avatar n tn The doctor told me the results showed stones in both kidneys...more in the right than in the left. Also showed a 4cm by 4cm cyst on the right ovary. She put her on birth control pills for a couple of cycles to see if the cyst goes away. So we are starting month 1 with the birth control pills, and waiting for an ultrasound in a month or two. As for the kidney stones...she was told to drink lot's of water, as much as 2 -2 liter bottles a day.
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 n tn some of the material i read said that it is common in young women that are thin and have long waists. well if you dont mind let me know what you think!!
Avatar n tn I was told that they are extreamly uncommon for young women but very prevalent in women 40 and older. I have them checked every three months. They are not serious but they can be if they are not monitored regularly.
470425 tn?1246926200 Hi Lauren, Like you I suffer chronic bladder/kidney infections my problem was the I had kidney reflux, this is where the valves in the bladder do not function properly and allow urnine to flow back up the urethras into the kidney (reflux) causing constant paindful infectins, I am now 39 yrs old and have had this problem since birth, I have had many surgeries to correct this.
Avatar n tn Other causes include bladder stones, ureteral stones, and interstitial cystitis Bladder stones are uncommon in women particularly young women with sterile urine. They can cause slowing of the urine stream and forcing to urinate. Though rare, a urachal cyst might be a consideration. Ureteral stones can cause urgency and frequency with small volumes and yet the urinalysis is clear. You might also consider a problem outside of the urinary tract, such as spastic bowel or diverticulitis.
1832268 tn?1326819610 My Yorkie was diagnosed with kidney failure in September 2014. She was in the hospital for 10 days (over $6,000) where they ran tests and found out that she developed kidney failure from eating chicken jerky treats. It is called Fanconi syndrome and the FDA has been investigating the deaths and illness of several dogs due to eating chicken jerky treats. I purchased Dingo Market Cuts from Walmart and both my dogs got sick throwing up and with diarrhea.

Avatar m tn 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 Last year I was rushed into hospital with severe lower back pain, vomiting, constant urination, and blood in urine. They discovered a 3mm kidney stone in my left kidney. It was too small and too soft for them to do anything so I had to carry on with the embarrassment of this unpleasant odour. It affected personal relationships and my confidence especially when working indoors. Deodorants seemed to make it worse and I was washing clothes much more regularly.
1966687 tn?1325734823 I'm not saying this is what caused the blood in the urine, just using it as an example because kidney stones are pretty common. As it is, do your best to not be afraid, and make sure you keep up with your doctor.
579390 tn?1217995167 I had been having pain in my lower pelvic region. I have had too many kidney stones to count, some I have had to have surgery for. The blood continued it became rusty looking, it eventually looked like I had tinkled a glass of tea. I was not running a fever. Off and on for a couple of weeks with the blood, still now, on occasion I will have the bloody urine. I am 41 and have not had my period for 6 months the Dr.
Avatar n tn Any other symptoms? Abdominal isssues, joint pains, kidney stones, memory problems? Have you had your thyroid levels checked? If you don't mind my asking, what was your pain from before the neuro diagnosed you? Drs are often too quick to say"oh, this is it" without further investigation...
Avatar m tn 0) - sent me for urinalysis and blood test (kidney function and diabetes) - results not yet available - prescribed 1000mg CIPRO daily (10 days) + Uristat for three days Having tried to read up as much as possible on UTIs, I note that this far more common in women than men. Many sources of information state that if a man presents with UTI, then it is almost always "complicated" and other tests should be performed.
Avatar n tn im 36 yr women pain is almost center and it fells like an ache from the bottom of the rib cage up to my left arm but a sharp pain right under rib cage my medical history has really nothing ever hurt there before i have had the measles and almost died when i was eighteen high fever 106.
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 Many drs miss this diagnosis, especially in women and in the early stages. It is the most common genetic disorder found among people of European descent and the most often misdiagnosed or not diagnosed until late stages of the organ damage.
Avatar f tn She also NEVER called and consulted my parents, who would have said NO in a heartbeat, that I was too young, and to try everything else before we resort to narcotics. Obviously, parents don't need to be contacted every time you take an advil, but to give a 16 year old a narcotic painkiller without even letting the parents know? Irresponsible, in my opinion, but don't get the wrong idea...I am responsible for my addiction and don't blame anyone but myself...
Avatar f tn I have had kidney stones since about that age and they do occur in my family. No one in my family has any severe kidney conditions. As to any potential of inheritance or risk of any severe kidney conditions if they occur in your family it would be worthwhile to ask your doctor that question. There are a wide variety of kidney conditions and their inheritance potential varies. This has some standard information about kidney stones: http://www.mayoclinic.
Avatar m tn I'm a 26 yr old Male, who currently suffers from back pains in the mornings. Other than the back pains, I would say that I am a healthy and fit person. The pain only occurs in the mornings. As soon as I get up and start moving around, and stretching out the back, the pain starts to dissappear, with only a slight tingle left during the day, but not really noticeable.
Avatar n tn it may be as a result of damage done during removal of kidney-stone although doctors seem to disagree on this. Found blood when masturbating (but none in urine) earlier this year. Saw doctor and had pta test done. It was normal. I went though hell while waiting on result. I was almost sure I has cancer. The condition cleared up. It has now recurred and there seems to be more blood than the first time.Seemingly it can be caused by burst blood vessels when "there is no semen".
Avatar n tn PTC usually occurs in overweight women...but I'm just throwing a guess in here, not a dx. I agree with the other poster that you should get your blood checked for inflammation markers - C-reactive protein, ANA, rule out lupus, etc. Do you get dizzy? vertigo? There are some other extremely rare disorders but they are hard to brain vasculitis. I would try to avoid a brain biopsy though.
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 n tn Urinary tract (which consists of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and the urethra) infections are very common in young women. Symptoms of UTI are frequent urination, burning sensation during urination, passing of blood in urine and even fever. I suggest you to get your urine examination and urine culture done from a urologist. You may also get an ultrasound done to rule out any kidney causes.
Avatar f tn I worry that you may have something similar and that you should have your gulbladder checked out especially since stones are more prevalent in women than in men. An ultrasound or CT scan is most likely in order. My pain is located mostly in the upper right quadrant of my abdomen and recently my palms have turned almost entirely red which was noticeable because I have always been so pale.
Avatar n tn If you recently underwent a CCK- assessment of gall bladder contraction, then you had a test which is very sensitive for the diagnosis of gall bladder disease, even in the absence of gall stones. If the CCK test is normal but you still beleive that the problem is the gall bladder, then removal of the gall bladder would be needed. If the pain persisted , then a problem in the gall bladder was not the cause.
Avatar n tn I am ok, but if I wake up in the morning hours; I am in severe pain - in the lower back (kidney area, right and left hip (on the sides) and upper back in the middle. After about 30 min to 1 hr; it goes away. I have a sedentary job and if I sit too long, my hips will ache again and makes it slightly painful to get out of chair, but nothing like the morning.
