Avatar f tn As you have had/still have calcium oxalate stones, your risk of getting more kidney stones is much increased. Avoid the foods mentioned and browse the web for more information on oxalate rich foods that you should avoid or eat less of. It is also very important to always stay well hydrated. Your urologist may have advised you to drink 2 litres of fluids (4 pints) during the day, more if you are doing exercises that make you sweat or perspiring in hot weather.
Avatar f tn With your symptoms, I would advise you to see a urologist. It does sound like kidney stones, but either way, you need to have this taken care of.
Avatar m tn Recurrent kidney infection can be due to diabetes, some anomaly or defect in the kidney or due to the organisms developing antibiotic resistance. Recurrent kidney stones are found renal tubular acidosis, medullary sponge kidney, Dent's disease (genetic disease of the kidney), hyperparathyroidism, primary hyperoxaluria and Crohn's disease. Since the pain comes before periods too, it can also be due to endometriosis.
18533109 tn?1465644152 Get It but ,Usually, an imaging test and an analysis of urine are done to diagnose stones. Tiny stones may cause no symptoms, but larger stones can cause pain in the area between the ribs and hips in the back. Sometimes stone formation can be prevented by changing the diet or increasing fluid intake.
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 f tn I am a poor water drinker which contributes to the formation of most kidney stones. I suggest that you have your stones analysed if you have not done that. I was told by 2 urologists that there is nothing that I can take or do that will change my situation. Both urologist told me the same as what yours said, my chronic back pain was not related to kidney stones. They were correct and I was diagnosed with other issues that was the cause of most of my chronic low back pain.
Avatar m tn First off, many of the herbs and supplements suggested for kidney stones, at best, may aid in urine flow to some degree, but there is no plant or vitamin that can MELT kidney stones, because all stones are made with varying amounts of CALCIUM, which cannot be dissolved without risking losing other things made of calcium such as bones and teeth! Only Uric acid stones have the least amount of calcium content and therefore CAN be reduced in size through medication.
Avatar f tn MSK has the tubulars which flare and thus creates problems with stones and other symptoms. Some are 100% asymptomatic with MSK and that's why the #'s aren't true indicators of who really has it .. if you don't have symptoms its likely you'll never know you have it. One thing that comes to mind is the nerve endings in the kidneys since the accidental knick. Maybe research RSD - Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy.
Avatar f tn Ileocecal Valve Syndrome, has to be investigated thoroughly, as I think that is the main cause of your girl's issues. All her symptoms are TYPICAL of IVS, including the kidney issues. You see toxicity is normally handled by the liver, but with food rotting in the small intestine because of IVS with the ileocecal valve being closed most of the time, the build up of toxins and bacteria cannot be handled by an overworked liver.
422425 tn?1307996590 After the initial evaluation she was able to tell me many things about the condition of my body, including the fact that I had kidney stones. I was very impressed. But I digress. I saw the acupuncturist for three months. It was expensive ($75.00 a treatment) and it was not covered by my insurance. I did not experience any reduction in my chronic pain. What I did find is that the treatments and setting was very relaxing.
3183592 tn?1344634338 I squirmed around trying to find any relief, but nothing I did made a difference. I had treated hundreds of patients with kidney stones, but now, I realized, I was the one who was about to wind up in the emergency room. My wife drove me to the hospital where I worked, and I greeted the ER director miserably letting him know that I thought I had a kidney stone.
Avatar f tn after being seen by 5 different doctors one told me kidney stone another told me kidney infection, gallbladder/stones omg i was gonna lose it, so today i see a doctor and he tells me, after reviewing all of my tests done by the other doctors, and a physical exam, and a phone call to an on call gynecologist, just so happened to be the one that did my lap in 2007 lol, who said that there were no masses or stones seen in the ct, although there was a tiny 1-2mm non obstructing object in the right
Avatar f tn I was told there was a lil calsification in it as well but probably wasnt a stone well low and behold 3 weeks ago 1 am i am in so much pain i can barely breathe yet again i take a trip to the hospital and end up going for a ct to find out in my right kidney i have a 8 by 10 mm stone a 5 by 6 mm stone and four 1 mm stones and i also have a 2cm stone in my left kidney..
Avatar f tn I have had over 60 kidney stones and unfortunately this is the way it works - if you go to a doctor complaining of the pain, they set you up for an ultrasound or ct scan, etc. A lot of times you have to wait weeks or months for that test depending on the insurance, etc. Meanwhile you are in a ton of pain and if you DO happen to pass a stone before the test you may never know.
Avatar f tn Whether or not it is kidney stones appears to be up in the air at this point but whether or not it is, you definitely need to get this resolved for your own well being. and health. I'm not trying to duck and dodge here, but I'm just being honest for your sake.
Avatar f tn I have an 18-year history with kidney stones with about 2 dozen episodes. The symptoms did not match the typical kidney stones, so I thought it was an infection that anti-biotics would cure. Still I drank lots of water trying to flush the system. My stream was getting gradually getting weaker with each urination. Finally, just after midnight, the stream was at a trickle, I could not sit there all night, so I gave a good push. Like a champagne cork, 2 stones shot out.
Avatar n tn For low back pain and abdominal pain, conditions like kidney infections, urinary tract stones, appendicitis, spine disorders have to be ruled out. Seek consult with your primary physician for a complete assessment and diagnostic tests.A warm compress over the area and OTC analgesics may be able to help temporarily. Do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Have you been checked for kidney stones? They could cause blood in your urine (visible or not).I was misdiagnosed with UTI's before my stones were discovered. Ask for an IVP. They inject dye into you, and x-ray your kidneys as it passes through. Also a 24 hour urine test is a good idea. They can find all kinds of stuff that way. As far as you Dr. goes, be blunt with him about your concerns, and ideas.
Avatar m tn My Mother once had Kidney stones 20-years ago. She had an operation to have the stones removed only to find that they came back a year later in full force. She did not want to have an operation every year.... so she learnt about how apples and apple juice completely dissolves Kidney Stones. Why don't all Doctors know that? A good friend of my Father's had gallstones last year when he came to visit us. He also complained about having painful gallstone attacks everyday.
Avatar f tn Since I have had no urinary frequency, no fever, no other symptoms, I decided to try the natural-path route. I began treatment with oil of oregeno capsules, garlic capsules, cranberry tablets and lots of water. This has been about 4 weeks and the discomfort has gone away, but yesterday's strip test still showed leukocytes but not as deep a purple color as previously, but still purple on the strip.
1832268 tn?1326819610 Breed, Age, Symptoms, Creatine, Bun, and Phorsphorus levels at time of first exam that revealed Kidney Disease, as well as End Stage Symptoms and Lab Values ( if known. ) How Quickly did the disease progress. Did the dog die naturally, or was the death assisted. I think this type of information would be very helpful to anyone and their dog, who has to deal with this disease.
1963554 tn?1325451090 He said that his right kidney is destroyed and that his left kidney has about 25% left. He has a tumor within his bladder and his urine cannot pass thru which goes into his kidney and damages it. When we had Shaggy checked out in May our vet said that it's UTI...because I mentioned to him that he'd pee and then go to other spots and nothing comes out. So he was given anti-biotics. This went on for several months.
Avatar f tn This is one of the most difficult things I've ever had to deal with. My beloved Gypsy is dying of kidney failure. Gypsy is a Jack Russell Terrier and she turned 18...yes 18...on Christmas Day. It's just so hard to know when it is "time." I prayed and prayed that she would give us one final parting gift and die on her own in her sleep...but she is SUCH a fighter and refused to surrender to this thing.
1916673 tn?1420236870 Everything you have said about symptoms are connected with the kidney disease. The lumps could be cancerous, but I have to say they may not be, because old dogs get lumps just like old humans. Sometimes they are cancerous, sometimes not. In a way, these are secondary to the kidney disease, which needs to be the priority for now. I am always surprised when vets put dogs with CKF on dry dog food. This really is not good.
Avatar m tn I had lythotripsy laser surgery 2 years ago due to several kidney stones, one of them being about 13mm.
Avatar f tn • acid reflex, mouth sores; • nerve issues; • muscles weak, spasm, sphincter issues; • joint swelling; • exhausted; • bruise easy; • heart racing; • blood pressure high; • blood clots slowly; • brain is foggy; • memory worsening, forgetful; • no libido (very different from past); • dehydration; • vision blurry; • severe osteopenia (2-yrs ago); • kidney stones; • intestinal bloating; • urine excessive volume; • urine, excessive calcium excreted; • depressed; • tumors, cysts, and polyps all over
Avatar n tn If you are looking to surgery, they will probably want it lowered. What kind of kidney stones did you have? If they were calcium stones did they check your calcium levels? Did a quick google search, there is a hormone from the parathyroid gland that regulates calciuma and if it gets too high, it can effect bone. I hope you have another physican overseeing all your medical needs. This is a scary time, take care of yourself, keep us posted.
Avatar m tn So according to test results, I have no kidney infection and no kidney stones because according to my doctor, kidney stones will show some trace of blood in my detailed urine exam. Also note that during the episode of my back/kidney ache, my chest pain was very little to almost gone. Although they came back a little bit but not to the point that i would go crazy.
1216899 tn?1288573925 With all the sites out there that have info on Vitamin D, their just doesn't seem to be one that has all the symptoms that can accompany vitamin d deficiency. I'm going to list my symptoms, so that others may have some insight, in layman's terms. I hope anyone else with the deficiency would also post theirs.
