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 f tn I have kidney stone pain. Are these symptoms related in some strange and mysterious way? How can I cure my reflux for good without meds? I'm starting nursing school this fall and what to take care of myself!
Avatar f tn Stories like this make me so mad!! As for what can help you, I dont know..ive never had kidney stones but my mom and brother have and nothing helped them when they were in the worst of it either. The only thing i can suggest to you is this... can you get them removed /crushed via ultrasonic waves? I think they call it lithotripsy (sp?). THats what my mom had done..she sat in a hottub and ultrasonic waves thru the water shattered her stones.
Avatar f tn it has a measure of 0,5 cm and has a CT number of +263 HU.. according to the doctor the only way to cure him for suffering severe abdominal pain is to remove the stone because it is like the size of the quail egg.. now i am just confused.. was it really true that 0.5cm would be like the size of the quail egg?
Avatar f tn Im not sure if is thr same bacteria that is not fully killed or have different bacterias im just very overwhelming and starting to get depressed. So far I had two ultrasound my kidneys look fine no stones. And had a urine sample and is nothing abnormal. 3days ago I went back to the doctors because my antibiotics im taking now I don't feel is working correctly. So I ask for a urine culture to see if is resistance to the antibiotics. . Now im waiting. Im just depressed.
Avatar f tn Should some of these enter the blood stream, the ONLY other organ that comes to the rescue is the kidney, that constantly filters the blood and this explains the dehydration, as the kidney now is working overtime filtering out the toxins using extra water. Water is the best detoxifying agent! Also another function of the kidneys is water regulation. When chronic conditions cause the kidney to overwork, kidney dysfunction is inevitable.
Avatar f tn I expect I will return to a 'regular' diet one of these days, but not yet. You also mentioned kidney problems. I have a damaged kidney from years ago, and when I get dehydrated, I get little tiny kidney stones that it takes a while to clear. Again, mine is an usual situation, but I did get some small kidney stones while on Diflucan (a rather high dose for several months, which is unusual) and it has taken a while for them to clear.
Avatar n tn RBC appearance and character may suggest the origin of the bleed and if there is underlying kidney disease. How old are you? Have you been diagnosed with diabetes? Any associated symptoms like pain in urination or increase in urinary frequency? Inflammation and infections may cause hematuria. With this, your fasting blood sugar and blood pressure levels as well urine protein levels should also be determined. Asymptomatic hematuria may be influenced by stress and strenuous exercises.
1522652 tn?1291241954 I know that there is a link beginning with my chronic uti's as a child, to my severe pms as an adolecent into adulthood, and then on to my chronic kidney stones and infections as an adult, and then the loss of my kidney, as well as the problems I'm experiencing now. My question is what specific tests do I need to request to accurately check my thyroid, parathyroid, and my calcium levels? Also, are there any specific questions that I need to ask.
554628 tn?1362781519 32PM Hi, nausea, headache and kidney pain can be related with nephropathy (kidney disorder), urine test and blood urea and creatinine are usually done for diagnosis. Kidney stones do cause similar kind of symptoms; ultrasound is quite diagnostic for stones.
Avatar n tn I have had a KUB that has detected approximately 8 stones in my left kidney and 14 stones in my right. I even had lithotripsy on a 7 mm stone on the left. I continue to have the pain on the right. My doctor says that I should not be having this pain because none of the stones are big enough (all 3-5 mm) to block anything. However, still the pain. He has prescribed Vicodin, which helps a little, but I am beginning to feel a little like a druggie.
910419 tn?1289487327 If someone could offer me a cure for my genetic disorder, I would jump at the opportunity. No kidney-stones, no chronic pain. No chronic pain, no pain medication needed. No pain medication, no abuse & subsequent addiction to said prescription pain-killers. Offer me a cure, and I'm jumping at it. Anyone that doesn't want a cure is a glutton for punishment or has come to like the attention of doctors, PM's, ER's, hospitals, etc, a little too much, and has other issues all together...
Avatar n tn Other causes include bladder stones, ureteral stones, and interstitial cystitis Bladder stones are uncommon in women particularly young women with sterile urine. They can cause slowing of the urine stream and forcing to urinate. Though rare, a urachal cyst might be a consideration. Ureteral stones can cause urgency and frequency with small volumes and yet the urinalysis is clear. You might also consider a problem outside of the urinary tract, such as spastic bowel or diverticulitis.
Avatar f tn Incredibly, mutant, toxic nuclear painful and just plain HURT, A LOT, multiple kidney stones. Kidney stones can pass and poof - all gone. Then another - or a few others - can make their ugly journey into your ureter days or weeks later. This experience is not fun. I speak from experience. One little 5 mm just about made me grind the enamel off my teeth - but the lovely wretched staghorn model at a whopping 9+mm? And hooked and now on display in a window box?
481119 tn?1208276891 i have been told i have degenerative cortical kidney cysts,could someone please help and tell me what this means its driving me crazy?!!!
Avatar f tn (My father suffers from kidney stones). I have been drinking lots of water and herbal teas. One doctor I spoke with over the phone suggested Bactrim antibiotic for 8 days. When I drink lots of water, it feels somewhat better. So I've been on bactrim for 2 days now, but I see no difference. According to you can this irritation be due to those crystals in urine, provoking this problem? Can antibiotics make it all worse if not bacteria was the cause of the irritation?
192055 tn?1263559137 Hi there, I have had about 12 kidney stones and even when my stones are in my kidney I am having flank pain. My doctors tell me that i should not be having pain when the stones are still in the kidney. I also have blood in my urine and have had two clear CTs ... I saw a nephrologist today and he is wanting to do a 24 hour urine sample to figure out why i have blood in my urine. I will keep you posted on what happens with me..
Avatar m tn I think the main thing we all strive for is a clear diagnosis, we need to know what we are fighting against before we can move forward, i have now been 5 years undiagnosed, but yet my problems and abdominal pains have got worse and worse and the doctors gave me more and more medication to combat symptoms. I am sick of nobody being able to tell me what is going on,so i have been devoting my life to researching stomach problems, the cause of abdominal pains and treatment.
1806721 tn?1554337007 Also, he/she can check for dehydration on the basis of physical signs and signs and symptoms such as little or no urination [not in your case], sunken eyes, and skin that lacks its normal elasticity and resilience when pinched. If you're dehydrated, you're also likely to have low blood pressure. For prediabetes pay careful attention to foods that will jack up your blood sugar; foods made with white flour [breads, crackers], white rice, potatoes, and of course sugary foods and drinks.
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.
383138 tn?1314171373 I was diagnosed 2 yrs ago with endometriosis after the gyno biopsied a nodule on my uterus, along with many endo symptoms. With all the increasing intestinal and abdominal issues they think it has spread on my intestines also.
Avatar n tn My goal is to have less than 500CC at a time. Have chronic UTI's and also kidney infections. Had an IVP done about a month ago and it showed a small stone right where the ureter curves. Dr. did a cystoscopy and something else to remove stone with a cage. Once he got in there, he found no stone at that loction, but found a pocket instead.
1916673 tn?1420236870 I would have to be completely honest and say, given her age and her kidney failure, and given that she has had (presumably) good dental care up to two years ago - I would forget about the dental work. It is true that according to some sources, bad dental hygiene is a major contributor to kidney failure. However, once a dog is in kidney failure, stress can be even more damaging. And that's without the high risk that anaesthetic will introduce.
Avatar n tn I HAVE BEEN COMPLAINING TO MY DOCTORS FOR YEARS ABOUT MY SYMPTOMS. I WAS ALWAYS ASKING MY DOCTOR IF BODY ACHES, SORENES AND FATIGUE AND SINUSES PROBLEMS HAVE ANY RELATIONS AND I WAS ALWAYS TOLD NO. SHE ONCE SUGGESTED THAT I SART TAKING A ANTI DEPRESENT PILL. AFTHER I HAVE READ YOURS AND OTHERS RESPONE TO THIS PROBLEM, YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW YOU AND OTHERS MADE ME FEEL LIKE I WAS NOT LOSING MY MIND. THANK YOU SOOOOOOO MUCH!
Avatar m tn Oh try looking into kidney stones and diet.. In case you are prone to them it's worth drinking plenty of water and reduce salt almost to nothing.
Avatar f tn Because Celiac causes malabsorption of nutrients, symptoms are widespread and varied, well beyond just the digestive tract and skin. Celiac tends to lead to other autoimmune disorders, further complicating things. And finally it can lead to various cancers if a strict diet is not adhered to. So get checked for Celiac disease if you have not.
Avatar f tn There are treatments which will help you to manage your kidney stones but there is no cure for kidney stones. I myself have had kidney stones for the last 12 years and have had about 15 large stones and 2 operations to remove stones that were to large to pass. Kidney stones are painful but is not something that is life threatening such as advanced HCV and liver failure or many other diseases. In the big picture it is something that can be managed and you can live a normal life.
