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 Either an IVP with pictures taken while lying and then standing will show the exact degree that your kidney is falling or a lasix renal scan in supine and upright positions will show your issue. A lot of doctors think this is a mythical condition, while others do take it seriously, however, surgery is only performed if you are symptomatic. Good news though, they are able to perform a laproscopic nephropexy!
Avatar f tn I would suggest you seek a nephrologist or urologist at the nearest university medical center that specializes in kidney stones for further evaluation.
Avatar f tn I have been lucky most have not been kidney infections. But from what I understand -- the stones are so porous that the bacteria easily is trapped in them. I wonder if the calcification works the same way ? Anybody know? Also I believe that we always have some type of stone activity going on but not all shows up on tests, leaving us wide open for infection. Just my two cents.
1963554 tn?1325451090 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. Then we finally took an x-ray and couldn't really see much, except there were little calculi and that his left kidney was enlarged...
Avatar n tn Before mono I had kidney stones twice at age 18 and 20..none since. I have chronic constipation and go to the bathroom about 1 time a week. The more constipated I am the worse my bladder symptoms are as well. I have been to a neurologist who ruled out ms. I have been to physical therapy twice, which helped a little.....but got worse again when done. I have seen a internist who checked me for diabeties insipidus which I did not have.
Avatar n tn Hi, You can ask for an Xray, which would be quicker to schedule and to report, to check for the presence of kidney stones which my cause an obstruction of urine flow, even if only partial, and can predispose to UTIs. WBCs in the urine can be a sign of renal damage and inflammation, especially if accompanied by epithelial cells.
Avatar n tn Simple question here, has anyone ever had a negative blood test and negative urine test and went on with their daily routine and a month or so later found out you were in fact pregnant while having ultrasound done. If this has happened to anyone or perhaps someone you know, please respond, I'd appreciate the information. Thanks.
Avatar m tn I don't know of any health issues except for a couple of kidney stones in the past. I do have pictures I would provide if I knew how. Any help would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn I've passed a couple on my own, and had one get stuck long enough to give me kidney infection. Currenlty I'm fever free and stones don't hurt, but the right kidney always has a dull ache. Any ideas? THanks so much for everyone's kind input!
Avatar m tn So four days later i went back again. Well this hospital preforms a ct scan looking for kidney stones. They found the kidney stones they were looking for. However they left me with this overwhelming fear after telling me that they seen a shadow on my lower left lung. I had 3 pictures taken so for the radiologist to say he didnt like what he seen, does that mean it was on all 3 pictures and does that mean there is something there. I'm a 25 year old mother of 2.
Avatar f tn Has any doctor checked your urine? If you have a kidney stone there may be traces of blood in the urine. I know you have had tests done but did any of them look at your left kidney? What are the symptoms of kidney stones? Kidney stones often do not cause any symptoms. Usually, the first symptom of a kidney stone is extreme pain, which begins suddenly when a stone moves in the urinary tract and blocks the flow of urine.
Avatar f tn Dripping would mean that you bladder is not being emptied properly, either due to a problem in the bladder, kidney stones, or an enlarged prostate gland. Although you can not see any blood in the urine, does not mean that there is no blood in there. A urine sample sent to the laboratory for analysis would show whether there was any blood in the urine. The doctor can also do a urine dip stick at the surgery appointment and this would show if you had any blood and any infections in the urine.
Avatar m tn Next day awoke with back pain, which was much more pronounced on the right side. Thought kidney stones initially, urine test, no protein. *Doctor prescribed Ibuprofen.* I took it on occasion, but did not take it unless pain was bad. Blood test ordered, all liver, panc, kidney function normal. *High White Blood Cell Count* Pain presented now in right side under ribs, with branching pain to center underneath sternum. Seemed to be associated with meals. Often food alleviated pain.

Avatar f tn I had no idea what they would tell me this was, then the doctor saw some redness on my back and is thinking its Shingles or kidney stones. He’s trying the shingle meds first, muscle spasm meds and nerve meds: Gabapentin 300mg Baclofen 10mg The morning the redness was not there, it could have been anything, like from my bath or heating pad, not sure. I am just keeping an eye on my left mid back to see if any rash appears and then I will fill the script I was given for shingles.
Avatar n tn Problem is i have lots of stones remaining in the kidney from lithotripsy which will want to pass through this "kink" my concern is; will dilation allow the passage of this gravel once the stent is removed.
Avatar n tn Blood in the urine suggests kidney stones. When there is diarrhea, white blood cells in the stool suggest intestinal inflammation. Plain X-rays of the abdomen. Plain X-rays of the abdomen also are referred to as a KUB (because they include the kidney, ureter, and bladder). The KUB may show enlarged loops of intestines filled with copious amounts of fluid and air when there is intestinal obstruction.
Avatar f tn The ureter is the tubular structure that connects the kidney to the bladder. So each time the urine tries to pass through the obstruction it causes severe pain. It can be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, sweating and sometimes blood in the urine. Small stones can pass through undetected. The other causes for the pain are: 2. Pyelonephritis (infection of the kidneys) and Glomerulonephritis (inflammation of the kidneys), here you are likely to have fever, 3.
967168 tn?1477588089 Maybe the kidney function problems. Have they done a CT to check for kidney stones? Do you have ketones in your urine regularly? If so do you go w/o eating at times? I have printed out your list of symptoms and will go over them. You have so many things going on. Do you have elvated liver enzymes w/ the swollen liver? Does it feel swollen or has a dr. confirmed this? Have they done a US or HIDA scan on your gallbladder?
385668 tn?1301797480 Do you have trouble holding your urine? Also do you wake up at night using the bathroom to urinate alot? I am so very scared as you are. I am hoping that our tests come out good, with nothing to worry about. Now let me ask you, you said your culture came back negative....isint that a good thing. They told me not to be nervous also, but as you I think they say that to everyone. I am trying to keep calm myself, but I been crying most of the night.
Avatar m tn Hi Colin, Do you have any family history of kidney stones or cancer? Any past history of kidney stones? It is possible that a small stone passing through the urethra could have injured the lumen and caused the slight bleeding. However, its best to have the investigations done in view of the lump.
967168 tn?1477588089 These patient are some of the hardest to diagnose, but two things are very common in this group 1) high ionized calcium levels and 2) kidney stones. Thus, if you had a recent bout of kidney stones and your calcium is "normal", make sure you check ionized calcium levels and PTH levels. Checking the urine for the amount of calcium in the urine is also a good test for this group...
Avatar m tn Urinary stones can cause abrasion and irritation resulting in hematuria. Other possible cause is a kidney condition called glomerulonephritis. I would suggest that you consult your Doctor so further investigation can be done. You Doctor may request for some blood tests, urinalysis, urine culture, and an ultrasound or CT scan. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar n tn The kidneys pull the body's wastes from the blood stream in the kidney's glomeruli and the basement membrane filters of the glomeruli are typically small. Kidney stones can exit, (albeit with some blood, guess from the tearing of the filter membranes to allow escape). But, the stones originated in the kidney, not the gall bladder, they are not connected. Kidney stones can cause severe flank pain and can radiate, perhaps this is what Andy might have passed, a kidney stone.
Avatar n tn His feeling was that I either had a gallbladder problem or kidney stones. The results were normal. I still have extreme pain and the specialist is now treating me for an ulcer w/anti-spasmodic meds as well as a pain med Darvocet. I was looking at a past blood workup I had done the end of Nov. 01' which stated my bilirubin (direct) levels were abnormal. I am wondering if this is all related?? I am seeing the specialist on Monday as well as my primary care physician.
Avatar f tn I began to have intermittent mild attacks, all in the same spot of my Right upper quadrant with nausea/vomiting, and over the course of the next 2 weeks they increased in severity until I couldn't stand it anymore and went to Urgent Care (I am still waiting to establish care with a new Primary care provider), I was diagnosed with a UTI, possible kidney infection and prescribed antibiotics. Ten days later I finish my antibiotics, and all is seeming somewhat better.
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.
523707 tn?1212472541 In the meantime, while waiting, I noticed a gallary of pictures on this dr.'s wall. They looked like graduation pictures. Something like what a family would have hanging in their house. I looked closely at them and it had their names, dates of birth, and the day they SUCCUMED to LUPUS!!! I made my husband look at them because I couldn't believe this doctor was actually hanging pictures of his patients that had died due to the very disease they were seeing him for!!!
Avatar n tn People who have had their gallbladder removed surgically still get plenty of green, bile coated stones, and anyone who cares to dissect their stones can see that the concentric circles and crystals of cholesterol match textbook pictures of "gallstones" exactly." -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- NEW - Click here To Access Liver Cleanse Forum Archive -- over 500 stories!
