Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones lower back pain


Avatar m tn recently i have been getting pains in my left lower back and it travels to my groin this time on the right side and feels now like a dull ache in my right testicle. no fever or nausea with these conditions but a "warm" sensation when urinating, stream is weak and color is mildy yellow. Could this be a kidney stone stuck in my bladder or is there another cause.
Avatar f tn Had horrible lower back pain and threw up a couple times. This was in the middle of the night. I just buckled over, went to bed and went back to sleep. Then work. My back still hurt a little, but now my left side hurt a lot. I went to the Doctor. Said I had blood in urine and that I had a kidney stone & should drink tons of water. It has been a week. Off & on back pain with same left side pain. Now I'm having burning in abdoman and feels like I keep having to urinate.
Avatar n tn But the pain didn't go away and it's been getting worse. It had become concentrated in my lower back to the right side of my spinal cord, right over my hip. Sometimes it does hurt in the right side of my abdomen and in the middle of my back, too. I'm 99% sure it's my kidney. I thought it might be a kidney infection of stone, but I have no pain or increased frequency urinating. In fact, nothing has changed about my urinating habits at all. Could it still be a stone or infection?
1619332 tn?1299021545 I went to the ER for the first time back in January because I had serious back lower left back pain and was throwing up and had was sweating like I was running a fever. I had no idea what was wrong with me I thought I was dying the pain was so bad. When I was taken to the ER I found out it was a 3 millimeter kidney stone in my left kidney, and to make it even better the the CT scan also showed I had 3 more in my right kidney that had not broken off yet.
Avatar f tn as long as you have a normal kidney on the other side. Certainly the pain your having could be from ureteral stones, and ureteroscopy is preferred in lower ureteral stones in child-bearing age women because lithotripsy may bruise the ovaries if used for lower ureteral stones. Infection is unlikely as infection and an obstructing stone usually leads to a high fever and is an emergency.
500419 tn?1220128343 Hey I was wondering Im 10 wks Pregnant and I have lower back pain REALLY BAD it feels as if i was in labor being i know how it feels i have 3 kids already What happends is all of a sudden i will have sharp stabbing pain and it will last about a min and if i have to pee it is very little or i can't. The doctor said that is what it sounds like to her but i dont have the money to have all these other test done on top of going to my obgyn.
Avatar f tn I've also had the flank pain you describe .. for me it's been in the lower back. I hope with lots of water your stones move out for you uneveventfully. Please keep in touch. From what I've read stones <5.0mm usually move out on their own with a high % of non-complications, etc.

Avatar n tn This past week the ab pain / pressure continued but now I have lower back pain as well, w/ some pain up the sides of my back. I finally went in the ER Friday Aug 29. Still blood in urine. CBC normal, though ER doc said all the antibiotics could possibly mask something. Renal CT scan showed 1 mm stone in right kidney, 2 even smaller stones in left kidney. Was given hydrocodone for pain and phenagren in case pain meds cause nausea and told to see a urologist asap.
1215383 tn?1266418042 I have been hospitalised a number of times with sever pain from my ribs to lower stomach and am on morphine and pethidine daily for the pain.
Avatar m tn Well, today I found out it is not Kidney stones that are causing me the pain. Rather Gallbladder is not functioning properly. I was hospitalized with severe pain two days ago and released yesterday. Had a HIDA scan which confirmed my gallbladder is no longer working properly. So I am going to be having surgery to remove it on Wednesday. Thanks for your help again.
1600904 tn?1340987945 intense episodes of pain beginning in lower back radiating around to lower right front abdomen. Urine was never hindered .... and as far as stones go I know I have felt MUCH worse but I am thinking this might be a small stone??? If I put intense pressure on area it almost seems to help a bit. I did notice, however, that in the middle of the night I developed very odd bruises on upper thighs. Is this related?

Avatar n tn I passed what looked like crystals, many,many of these along with some (7) noticeable brown jagged 'stones'. I am now home but am still having severe lower abdomen and lower back pain. Should this have passed by now or should I go back to the hospital. Is there a chance of irrepairable damage from this episode?
Avatar n tn Hi, Are there other symptoms present? A kidney stone is a solid mass made up of tiny crystals which may present as abdominal pain, blood in the urine, chills, excess urination at night, fever, flank pain or back pain, painful urination or urinary frequency/urgency. Abdominal CT scan, xrays or ultrasound of the kidneys will confirm the diagnosis of kidney stones. Menstruation problems are hormone and stress related.
Avatar f tn Yesterday afternoon, I suddenly developed a pain in my lower left back and side, creeping acound to the front abdomen. Have no problem urinating, however, the pain is a constant now, with a sharp stabbing pain that comes every couple of minutes. The pain is so bad that it will take my breath away. Pain increases tremendously when I get up or down, but then goes back as before when I am in that position for a minute or two.
Avatar n tn Hi Doctor!! I have three kidney stones of 6mm, 5 mm, and 4 mm respectively, in lower part of kidney: they sonologist told that they are found quite near to each other. I, at times, feel pain on the back side of right part of abdomen: Kindly guide me the appropriate treatment.
Avatar f tn Everyone thought I had a kidney stone but nothing shows up. I have a hard time laying down becuase it causes pain deep inside on the lower right back. I too am now looking into a possible parasite I digested when I was in Mexico a week ago. I am wondering if this sounds similar to yours.
Avatar n tn I am beginning to have the same symptoms I had last time (sore lower back and tender testicles). The difference this time is that I have had a problem with erections ever since my kidney stone symptoms started. Since my groin has been sore the last 5 days (also same time period my problem with full erections have started), is it possible that this is the reason for my lack of labido?
Avatar f tn This summer I experienced extreme pain in my right flank along with back pain on the right side and frequent urination. Dr thought it was either kidney stones or a pulled back muscle. After a couple of weeks this pain subsided, however then I developed swelling in my left foot that was thought to be gout. After a couple weeks this too subsided. Since Christmas I have been experiencing back pain on the right side, frequent urination again and occasional lower right abdominal and pelvic pain.

Avatar n tn I am a 22 year old male. The previous evening I was suddenly experiencing fairly severe lower abdominal pain, the pain was considerably stronger when i was standing and walking. While standing and walking I was even experiencing very slight naseau. The abdominal pain I was feeling was most prominent around or slightly above my pelvic bone on either side of my body. Towards the front of the abdomen.
Avatar m tn Now last Thursday I pass blood in my urine again so the doctor sent me for a ct scan and they found I have a 4mm located in the lower ureter about 10cm about the pelvic inlet, I have little attacks of pain nothing to outrageous they start from my back and work do to my groin but when I do I Am passing tiny bit of sand look stuff that's kind of grey looking. Is this the stone breaking up or something else?

Its on off and feels burny but at the moment is just being managed by painkillers. I also have a on off pain in ny penis head but is ok when i pee. Recently tested neg for chlaymdia and gohnarea so rulwd those out.
Avatar n tn I'm a 26 year old female, and I am struggling to figure out whether or not I should wait for an appointment the day after tomorrow at my GP or return to the ER (uninsured for another month) Last friday I went to the ER for extreme pain on my left lower flank-- that pain lasted from 7:30 in the morning until 6 at night. They took a urine sample and said there was blood in it, but not a lot and it was probably just a stone.
409451 tn?1206900232 Then noticed I was extremely tired, have almost constant lower back pain, and had off and on abdominal pain some extremely sharp-took my breathe away (during period) others just random off and on pain. Also noticed a swollen gland in groin that's been there almost 2 months (no pain there). Went to ob/gyn for uti symptoms and gland, no bacteria found, but slight blood in urine.
