Avatar n tn 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. My question is, if the stones are still in my kidneys how can they be causing all the lower abdominal pain and pressure. This pain is worse after I walk much, and when my bladder is getting full before I urinate. Urination does NOT hurt though. I have had no fever at all.
Avatar m tn The recovery time is usually short and after treatment, you may have blood in the urine and even abdominal pain or aching for several days. Oral pain medication and drinking lots of water will help relieve symptoms. It is important that you check with your doctor first for evaluation before removing the stent. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn Abdominal causes like irritable bowel syndrome can also cause such symptoms. Common symptoms include abdominal cramping or pain, bloating and gassiness, and altered bowel habits(alternate constipation and loose stools). It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.
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 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 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.
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.
Avatar n tn , he concluded that I passed a kidney stone, NOW have a UTI because of it and since I don't have a fever, nausea, vomiting or any significant abdominal pain or flank pain (tho I did experience a slight bit of achiness in those places that day), he gave me a 50ml piggyback of Rocephin and then sent me home with rx's for Ceftin 250mg BID x7 days and some Darvocet-N 100mg. Absolutely no Urologist in this city can see me sooner than 2 weeks from now.
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 am 24 and for the past five months have been suffering from abdominal pain, dizzyness, nausea, and fatigue. It started with extreme pain in my left kidney which I thought was kidney stones but turned out to be "nothing"when I had CT scan done. A month later I started to get extremely painful attacks in my gallbladder which happened 1-2 times a week usually around 10pm or later.
Avatar n tn Bladder infection may result in symptoms of urination, frequency urgency etc with fever and lower abdominal pain. Kidney infection may result in symptoms of pain in the loins, fever, and urinary symptoms. If you think that you may have one, please consult your doctor immediately. this is important to ensure that it does not spread and decrease the damage. You would need a urine examination and an xray of your lower abdomen before any other investigations are carried out.
Avatar m tn I'll try to keep this short: Last spring I began having left flank pain, an achiness over and around my left hip and into my groin area. I went to the doctor and was told I probably had an issue with my piriformis muscle. I was in PT (twice a week all summer). The ache would come and go. I was good for a few days, then the aches came back. I returned to the doctor in August and was sent to the an orthopedist. Had a pelvic/hip x-ray done and was told my IT band was extremely tight.
Avatar n tn I have had soft stool, sometimes watery for about a month now. I am also having pain on my right side. It started under my rib in the front and is now on the actual side and sometimes radiating up the back. My doctor sent me in to have an ultrasound of my abdomen. 4 years ago I had one and they found polyps in my gallbladder. In this ultrasound, they were still there. However, he also ordered an abdominal x-ray and found calcifications.
Avatar n tn The common causes of pain in right upper quadrant are duodenal ulcer, gallstones, appendicitis, kidney stones, panacreatitis; Crohn’s disease etc.Each of these conditions has other associated symptoms which may help in determining the cause of your illness. Consult a primary care physician. He may further refer you to a specialist based on clinical findings. Do write to me again. Best of luck!
Avatar m tn Emerg visit this month showed (big surprise) on CT, two left kidney stones 2-3 mm, one in kidney and one between bladder and kidney. This is the first time CT has been done laying on stomach. If part of this has been kidney stones all along, why might I be getting severe abdominal bloat with these episodes? I have not passed stone yet (week 3) but put on Flomax 3 days ago and bloat seems to be reducing. Thanks for your suggestions.
Avatar n tn And about once a week, I have to pass a kidney stone, and its' extremely painful. The weird thing is that I don't get any of the symptoms of kidney stones, like nausea or extreme pain in my flank. The pain only occurs at the tip of my pee-tube when it's finally coming out. Okay, and that's just the kidney stone part - let me start on the constipation/metabolism parts: I'm always constipated, I go weeks without a bowel movement.
Avatar n tn My 15 year old daughter had a CT scan to check for kidney stones. The doctor told me the results showed stones in both kidneys...more in the right than in the left. Also showed a 4cm by 4cm cyst on the right ovary. She put her on birth control pills for a couple of cycles to see if the cyst goes away. So we are starting month 1 with the birth control pills, and waiting for an ultrasound in a month or two. As for the kidney stones...
Avatar f tn I have had abdominal pain in the right and left side below the rib cage area since shortly after i turned 18 , and now i am 3 months away from being 22 and still the pain comes and goes whenever it feels like it ive had ultra sounds and blood tests for diffferent infections such as liver and kidney infection and gallstones and kidney stones.
Avatar m tn Kidney stones - small hard deposits that look like stones may be passed from the kidney down to the urinary tract. The pain may start as a severe pain in the side, back, and below the ribs, which may spread to the lower abdomen and groin. The pain comes in waves and fluctuates in intensity, and may be associated with nausea, vomiting, fever, and chills if an infection is present. Other common symptoms include pain during urination, persistent urge to urinate, and frequent urination.

Avatar f tn So many things can cause abdominal pain-- bowel obstruction, kidney stones... even disc herniation can cause abdominal pain if it is a certain location. I wish I could be of more help; I can't even say with certainty that he should see a doctor or should wait. In general, I would recommend seeing a doctor if such a condition interferes with function, if it continues for a long period of time, or if 'constitutional symptoms' appear-- like fever, nausea and vomiting, or diarrhea.
Avatar n tn The raised area is about as big as baseball. 3-4 on pain scale.36 year old man, 7-8 years ago i passed kidney stones, but none of the pain is the same. I am not sure what triggered this before, but it seemed to happen when i would bend to the left and smash the area like a crunch or eat a heavy meal .
Avatar m tn Hi, How are you? Are there other signs or symptoms present? Are you still experiencing the pain? Kidney pain usually is felt in the flank area, and not on the upper abdomen. Can you elaborate on your blood pressure readings? If it persists, i would recommend that you have this evaluated further by your doctor. With your history of elevated blood pressure and tachycardia, other tests such as ECG and blood tests may be done to rule out cardiac and gastrointestinal causes.
Avatar n tn Up to 20% of adults with kidney stones may have medullary sponge kidney; the corresponding figure in children is unknown. Among patients with kidney stones, hypercalciuria may occur in 40-50%, and recurrent gross hematuria may occur in 10-20%. Although no evidence indicates that risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs) is higher in patients with medullary sponge kidney, up to 5% of males and 35% of females have a UTI.
Avatar f tn 5 years my now 17 year old has suffered chronic pain in her back (renal) area with lower abdominal pain both right side. She has reduced kidney function to that side by 10%, recurrent uti, but a partial duplex kidney system to the left. Various tests show inflamed ureter, constipation, slow transient bowel, inflammation around the ileac valve, urine ph usually around 6, protein +, leucocytes, but no actual diagnosis. No stones detected.
383138 tn?1314171373 I am wondering if endo could be causing all the kidney, bladder pressure, pain, left side pain, increasing sickness, weight loss, etc. I also read that a pelvic MRI should be done before endo surgery to see if it is deep into organs so they can prepare and do the correct prep for surgery, but no one has ever ordered a pelvic or abdominal MRI for me, even after these 2 years of increasing problems.
