Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones journals


Avatar n tn It is good at helping the liver and kidneys eliminate toxins, helps with muscle and joint problems, and it can help precipitate crystals in joints (from arthritis), as well as help disolve gall stones and kidney stones. I have a few books on it, including one with a lot of recipes, and it is widely talked about on the web (using a web search). The best kind is the unpasteurized, raw ACV with the "mother" (enzymes). It is safe to drink as it kills bacteria and many viruses.
Avatar f tn Peaches As I mentioned I am not a doctor but a patient and can only share with you things we have found that helped me and others MSK is not the benign disease that medical journals say..... the small cysts in our kidneys do not allow the urine to drain properly, so infection and stones are a pattern of life. Then over time a low level biofilm infection can set up in there causing pain that is often unexplainable by standard tests. The good news is you are not alone..
383138 tn?1314171373 CT without contrast did not show any kidney stones, it only showed pelvic phleboliths (calcium like stones in my pelvic veins which dr. didn't seem concerned about those). I am supposed to see urologist for cytoscope, but cant get in for 3 weeks. I am wondering if endo could be causing all the kidney, bladder pressure, pain, left side pain, increasing sickness, weight loss, etc.
1662415 tn?1303971156 This day, group 3 presented their webinar speaker from Japan and discussed kidney stones. It is an interesting topic for me because i think it is a common health problem (especially kapampangans who love dippings in their viand. Aside from Webinar presentation, we were tasked to compile our activities for the whole term. Some are just starting to do their journals, openEmr activies while others was just chillin, surfin, and chit-chattin with their seatmates.
Avatar f tn Also, the doctors have said they are not entirely sure that my pain is kidney stones. The pain is a burning, stabbing pain that goes down my right backside and to my lower stomach on the right side. The stones are calcium-oxalate and are usually small. In the past six months, I have been passing a steady amount of "gravel" in my urine, which is basically small stones. Therefore, I am in pain all of the time.
168348 tn?1379360675 This is so typical of a small kidney stone. So much fun. Not really. It may have passed already. Had sharp pangs yesterday and groin pain yesterday and today so it is low. Last night and this AM progressive lower one sided flank pain in the back. And on Mobic for chronic ankle issues so will add some Tylenol now to the mix. This too shall Pass. Hopefully sooner vs. later. It all started with a virus on Halloween ..
Avatar f tn he thought he was making funny jokes, I guess), I went to a urologist. The uro did a CT...turned out I had THREE stones in my kidney and a severe infection, which took over a month to kill. Turned out I also have MSK. Right now, I suffer in flare ups....I may suffer for months with chronic pain, but then be mostly pain free for a couple of months. I should also note that kidney stones can be scary....especially when they won't pass. When I had my CT, I had 3 stones....
1474625 tn?1371100679 I have taken up to 12 pills a day which, depending on various medical journals exceeds the max daily dose by 4 pills due to risk of seizures, which I have had due to Tramadol use. What scares me the most is that if I ever come across "h", I am most likely to try it. But my story continues with my struggles of today, which is by far, my biggest battle to date and a sticky situation I, along with enabling doctors, have helped put myself in.
Avatar n tn I went to rehab was doing great for a few years until my chronic kidney stones began acting up. I was sent to a pain management doctor who put me on 40mg oxycontin and 5mg oxycodone. I knew this was a bad idea, but I went with it. Up until 2 days ago I was taking 120mg of oxycontin a day on top of the others. My insurance quit paying for them this year and a script costs almost $600.00. I ran out and stopped. I upped my Norco intake to help w/ the detox, but it is still VERY rough.

168348 tn?1379360675 I was told I have calcification's and stones embedded as well as having mass amounts of stones in the kidney. I was told my kidney is leaking and that there is protein in my urine. I just don't know what to do. I am tired of hurting and feeling sick, and tired of the uti's constantly. I did have a procedure done that stretched the ureter to help the stones pass easier, but that only worked for about 2 yrs.
Avatar n tn I just recently found this articlebelow! I am to have the surgery done on Aug. 4th for chronic kidney pain with no stones in the ureter! Afterward I will post more info. on the procedure and how it works to solve this! Shelly Urology. 2006 Apr;67(4):683-7. Epub 2006 Mar 29.

Avatar f tn I have kidney stones and was thinking the same thing before I read Dr. Anitha's post.
Avatar f tn I have had several activations and symptoms come right back full force. I have also had kidney stones and cysts on my kidneys and i swear its from EBV too. Fortunately the activations when caught early can be fairly well dealt with for me.
Avatar m tn I recently had a surgery to clean some of the stones out of my collection ducts, which was supposed to relieve the pain level. Unfortunately, it seems to have all come back. I felt pretty great for a while, but now I am going from dull aches to feeling like a screwdriver is lodged in my back (my favorite metaphore). You can read about the surgery in my journals if you are interested. I'm not saying it was a failure, just that things aren't going too good right now.
Avatar f tn But the sponge kidney mainly causes me to have urinalysis tract infections and kidney stones. They said I was probably born with it. Imagine that.... If was found because I went to the emergency room for chest pains which turned out to be pericarditis for the second time. And for some strange reason they thought I had a kidney stone and ultra sounded my kidneys. Never figured out why chest pains signaled kidney stone alarms but that's the medical field I guess!
Avatar n tn He was diagnosed with Empty Sella at 8, had kidney stones at 15, diagnosed with Mitral Valve Prolaspse and Bicuspid Regurgitation at 17 and now he was hospitalized following a suicide attempt .. His TSH was over 30. My question is .. Are all these ailments related? I know the TSH is a direct correlation to the depression but all the other things the Drs.
546639 tn?1219854431 I have a bunch of clots, I have muscle tissue dying, nerve damage, swollen nodes, kidney stones developed, 24 hour pain and many other things. I need to find a doctor that will actually look into this and see if this just may be the case. From what I have researched it sounds very likely, but every doctor I have seen continues to try to find something else to blame these issues on other than what may have happened during this surgery.
Avatar m tn I don't even know if my pain is really that bad or I am just so used to taking a pill for every little twitch in my flank area (due to passing stones and my kidney being filled up with them). NO MORE! I can do this without the pills. I see the light at the end of the tunnel. When I look at the end of the tunnel I see Jesus holding out his hands and I see the old me from two years ago cheering me on. My kids and husband need their mommy and wife back. Your girlfriend needs you back.
Avatar m tn She does have a history of Kidney stones but she only has gotten them once and guess what.... she was pregnant at that time too. She went into the hospital with the same symptoms I outlined above but, like this time, nothing showed up on any tests.
Avatar n tn Two years ago my wife was diagnosed with a severe gallstone problem. Her ultrasound showed lots of stones the size of hazel nuts. One look at the utlrasound pics her doctor lifted the phone to call the hospital to check my wife in for early surgery. My wife had been reading Dr Clark's book for some time. She told her med doctor to hold that call. She came home and put herself through two liver cleanses. The second one, we both counted the huge stones that came out in the toilet.
1194973 tn?1385507504 (I understand your desire lholt to share this with other sufferers ) This protocol ideally should be monitored by a health professional, as one of the serious side effects is the formation of kidney stones in higher doses ( the efficacy in the recommended starting dose is too low for most people to experience results, so the protocol calls for increased dosage till intoleranceis reached,) If self treating you must become very familiar with all the details of this protocol!

187722 tn?1280496986 I feel awful most of the time... no energy, chronic fatigue, memory problems, kidney stones, (mild) high blood pressure, elevated cholesteral levels, tingling all over my body from head to foot for 15+ years, tinitius, bilateral hearing loss, and essential tremors. I have been to a major medical/research facility in Jacksonville with numerous tests. Where can I find someone qualified to operate the second time or do I need to wait on doctors at clinical trials in Bethesda?
168348 tn?1379360675 They have all been before the Lyme dx (except the last round of Vantin and maybe Bactrim) which were for UTI's directly related to passing multiple kidney stones after a serious kidney infection in April. Hope that helps that those were most likely before the Lyme since the rash only appeared on Oct 15th but I've been on abx since March 4 to be exact with instances of between 3-10 days off before another UTI was dx'd.

Avatar n tn Someone said they thought distilled water can cause kidney stones. They were wrong. Hard water is the cause of kidney stones and cataracts and distilled water is the cure. My cousin had cataracts at 50 yr of age because he only drank tap water because some bimbo told him distilled water was bad for him. He had to have cataracts removed from both eyes at 50 because he was so blind he could not see the the biggest letter on the eye chart.
Avatar f tn In March this year I had developed kidney stones and that was super painful. I ended up passing them on my own I didn't know what it was. I had to go to ER and have it checked out. And that is what the surgeon on duty diagnosis was. Then in April I caught a cold from a patient at work, and that developed into full blown pneumonia. I was very ill. I went to a walk in clinic and was assessed by a doctor who is now my GP.
