Avatar f tn But yesterday morning I learned that kids can get kidney stones!!! I'm still surprised on that. My 13-yeaar old daughter, who is a trooper ... never complains and has a pretty high pain threshold ... She came in my room yesterday morning in real distress. She was wincing and saying she had terrible pain in her back on the left side. I knew she was in agony when she started vomiting with the pain. I gave her an advil and an ice pack and called the pediatrician, who wasn't in yet.
Avatar f tn There are other types as well ( cystine, struvite , uric) Kidney stones may hold a genetic predisposition. In your case, the presence of kidney formers in the family may explain the onset of kidney stones at an earlier age. It is best to open lines of communication with your physicians. At this point, you may discuss on whether a referral to a pain management specialist may help.Continue following physician's advice regarding diet, fluid intake and exercise.
Avatar f tn Finally after she was in excruciating pain a x-ray was done and they found 2 kidney stones in right kidney. They had me give her pain meds for 2 days and the dr's figured they passed. Since then had a couple days that she was in a little pain. Then today started having really bad pain again, and more bleeding in urine. We're hoping they pass this time, and we'll be done with this. We don't have a family history of these, and follow up with the dr. next week.
Avatar f tn My urologist has referred me to a pain management dr and my appt is still 2 weeks away. My question is has anyone here seen a pain management dr for pain related to kidney stones? If so can you shed any light on what to expect? Ive never been to this type of dr before so i don't really know what he can or will do for me and can't find much info online about this particular kind of situation.
409451 tn?1206900232 I've also been bloated for about 2 months. (Also, my dad has aweful kidney stones) I was referred to urologist, he thinks it's endo, ordered ct scan, but I haven't had it yet...does anyone have any suggestions or similar issues, I'm feeling really lost and confused!!??
Avatar n tn I too suffer with kidney stones. They usually start with the pain we all know but sometimes the pain feels like you need to poop and when you do its diarrhoea. My doctor said that the pain from the stone causes cramping in the gut and that causes your bowels to react in sympathy to the pain thinking they are the problem. Your mind thinks the problem is somewhere in your gut and it's easier to go to the toilet and poop than pass a stone hence the stomach pains and diarrhoea.
Avatar f tn I have a kidney disease which causes me to pass several kidney stones a month. Not only do I have the pain when passing a stone but due to the disease have constant chronic pain even when not passing a stone. My pain specialist, nephrologist and primary physician have me taking 2-15mg MS Contin and 4-7.5/325mg Percocet daily along with up to 4-50mg Demerol when needed for more severe pain. I've been taking these medications for approximately 6 plus years.
592774 tn?1325397342 As for saving the stones, I guess if you are having problems being believed by your doctors or family members about the degree of pain you are in, a sample cup of stones brought to each visit may help. I am going to my nephrologist today and am bringing them for the shock value. My uro thinks she is not doing enough to help me prevent the stones. I know the cup of stones I have collected has made an impression on my kids attitude toward me when I am in pain. They seem more compassionate.
1301089 tn?1290670171 I know this probably isn't the best forum for this but I know all of you and trust you. Also, others have posted about kidney stones here in the past. I have a terrible pain on my right flank. I wake up with it and it only gets worse as the day wears on. It is going on a week now. I've been more nauseated than usual. I also have more severe pain in the bladder and groin area. My Lortab aren't even touching this. I am still on my feet but just barely.. I drink lots of water.
Avatar f tn My problem is the pain im having in the kidney, which at times can reduce me to a mumbling wreck, i have been back to urology where i had the operation and gone through all the usual... wonderful... tests, to be told the kidney looks fine, and is working. When ever i ask about the pain i still experience im met with utter avoidance of my question. I have noticed certain foods and drink make the pain worse so try to avoid these.
494669 tn?1275366075 I get up and do what I can, and what my pain allows me to do. My husband does everything. He does all the shopping, takes the kids to their sports and church activities, he gives them a bath and puts them to bed every night. My husband then does the dishes. It's been like this for the past two years. My husband works all day, plus has two part time jobs for extra money. I have to tell you, my husband has never complained about what I can not do.
Avatar f tn If you also suffer with reoccurring kidney pain whether you are passing stones or not...please respond as I am relieved to know I am not the only one. Beginning to think that I would never find someone that can identify with me. I would like to exchange information with another woman that has been experincing similiar symptoms. Thanks for your time in advance.
Avatar f tn Cold like symptoms? etc? If it is kidney stones any explanation to why the pain is only so bad at night and just dull aches off and on during the day? Would kidney stones have shown up on the MRI?
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 just found this site today, I thought it would be helpful to show the doctors the problems my Kidney Stones are casuing. This has been going on since December. Can't sleep at night, the pain is much worse. I have to work and take care of my kids, it's a shame that I have to on hydrocodones. I am having surgery on Feb. 12th. Feels like such a long time away!
393165 tn?1420764045 I have kidney cyst and kidney stones and have suffered 10 very bad kidney infections since october 2010 and previous. have been in and out of hospital and am on waiting list to have kidney stones removed. I have tried my very best to be strong and keep the faith but have hit rock bottom as pain and weakness has become too much for me :( I am going to get strong again for my kids and hubby sake :) just need a little prayer here and there to get me through this period of my life.
230262 tn?1316649534 i think i might have kidney stones now!! omg it started yesterday, horrific pain in my left lower back. I have been up all night long in pain. could not sleep at all, the pains got sharper and worse when i would sit up or try to walk. I probably will go to the ER today after I get my kids off to school. I just had another horrific pang while typing this. the pain wax and wanes but sometimes like all night last night, it was nearly constant pain! THis suckks!
393165 tn?1420764045 had intense cramping pain in side that wouldnt let up no matter what, outcome was kidney stones on opposite side??? puzzling as I have a kidney cyst on other side. Have been having kidney infections for past two months and no antibiotics work. Anyhow, Had a CT Scan, an Exray, injections in both side of my behind lol and a drip of fluid for dehydration, about 14 bags over 5 days or more!
Avatar n tn None of them can explain to why I keep getting kidney stones. Some stones have caused major pain and others have sat in my kidneys for years with no problems.The drs have done every and any test possible from blood work to CT's to MRI's and they still can not figure out why I keep getting the stones. The most recent test they did was a CT w/contrast to see if I had that sponge kidney disease. The test came back inconclusive. I know that the stones are made up of calcuim.
2081455 tn?1332179587 I have been passing kidney stones since 2006. I recently saw a Urologist in November of 2011. I was told I had 2 large stones in my left kidney and a few small ones in my right kidney. I went to the Urologist because I had been experiencing terrible pain in my left kidney. In December I had my left kidney cleaned out by laser through the urethra. It took over 3 weeks to recover and it was the most terrible pain I have ever felt. They did not put a stent in.
Avatar m tn Could this be kidney stones? Something else please help oh and 4 month post partum..struggling with the kids..
3112653 tn?1351625681 and it wasnt hard to get rid of em I had the boyfriend flush what I had left I only took what I needed for the intense pain. I was so scared more of the medication than the stones, but I was a good girl my kids and my bf were so very proud of me but the main thing I was so very proud of myself, I wanna thank everyone who gave advice and helped me as always you guys rock.

I just had Litho done 4 weeks ago and was in the following week for another one.

Avatar f tn hi my friend has kidney stones and is 9 weeks pregnant she is in a lot of pain and has been bleeding is this a sign that she will lose her baby.
Avatar n tn During my second pregnancy I had a uti that never ended. After going to a specialist I found out that I had kidney stones and had lithotripsy to remove them this past January. I gained about 14 lbs in one month after the litho. All my blood work has come back completely in range of fully functioning kidneys(just tested last week).
