Kidney stones symptoms flank pain

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones symptoms flank pain


583644 tn?1221449146 My body tells me it is my kidneys. I have kidney stones, but my GP insists that the pain is not from my kidney stones because they are not obstructing the duct. I asked him if it was possible that my stones were moving around and he told me that kidney stones do not move around and they do not cause pain.
540521 tn?1221703306 Hi, I posted a few days ago here and no one has responded, see my post below, starts out GROSS HEMATURA AND RIGHT FLANK AND BACK PAIN. I have right flank and back pain and blood in urine, every few weeks I will have a burning in my urine and bloos be there. Like you I tend to hurt when I am active. Had ultrasound and no mass or tumors were found but they say i have to have other testing for stones; i hurt so badly; just wondered h\where your stones are located and how they found them? how many?
Avatar n tn Hi, Renal calculi can vary in size from as small as grains of sand to as large as a golf ball. Kidney stones typically leave the body by passage in the urine stream, and many stones are formed and passed without causing symptoms. If stones grow to sufficient size before passage—on the order of at least 2-3 millimeters—they can cause obstruction of the ureter.
997798 tn?1250093033 Hi. I have had stones for over 30 years and only over the past 5 years had the symptoms you describe. Is the stone exiting the right kidney? <<<<"along with the pain I now have on my right side" = FLANK PAIN. Please google it and see if it matches up to the pain on the side. Is this your first stone? You need to do 24 hour urines and have the stone analyized, VERY important. DRINK DRINK DRINK ALL THE WATER YOU POSSIBLY CAN FORCE IT.
Avatar m tn One question - he indicated that I'd know it if I had pain from the stones. A quick google search found that kidney stone pain can be excrutiating. Is it always excrutiating and, if so, for how long? Do you get warning beforehand?
Avatar f tn I have a 15 yr. history with kidney stones. I had my most recent attack 3 weeks ago and it was one of the longest enduring of any I've had, with the most severe flank and ureter pain lasting almost 12 hrs. The last couple hours of the horrible pain, I experienced what I would almost call spasms very low down, and I've never had that before in any of the other attacks. I had waves of pain and the urge to urinate every few minutes.
Avatar f tn Hi and WELCOME to our Kidney Stone Community. I'm not a doctor, but do have too much experience with kidney stones. For me, I'd get pings and pangs in my kidney as well as microhematuria (blood you cannot see by eye) in my urine when I have stones. 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.
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 Weturner, there IS a connection between "bipolar" and kidney stones. His 'bipolar' symptoms and kidney stones are very possibly caused by the same thing. It is called Hyperparathyroidism. Most people have never heard of PARAthyroid glands. But we all have four of them. Please have your husband's parathyroid checked out by the best expert you can find. I was put on medications for years for mental things such as bipolar, I was also getting kidney stones a lot.
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 Hi i know this post is old but did either of you find out what was the promblem i'm experiencing flank burning pain sensations and lower back pain ct scan and xray normal liver and kidney function
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 n tn I am traveling overseas in SE Asia, hoping someone can provide some insight into my right flank symptoms. I've been experiencing mild, ongoing pain in my right flank for about two or three months now. An initial urine test showed traces of blood in the urine -- however I subsequently had an X-ray, a CT-scan, and another urine test, and all came back negative. (Recent blood tests were clear too.) So my doc told me to go ahead and leave on the trip to Asia, where I will now be for a year.
Avatar n tn DR is talking about removing my left kidney, but doesn't want to until he is sure why I have the pain and why kidney is deteriorating. I would like your opinion on what could be going on. What could be causing the function of my kidney to be decreasing? Why am I getting pain like there is a stone when everything is negative? I would like to start a family, what would having the kidney removed do to those plans?
Avatar n tn However, before jumping to any conclusion and needless worry, we should wait for your appointment with the specialist or urologist to determine the underlying cause. Flank pain often means kidney trouble such as kidney stones or infection. Other tests may also be done such as cytoscopy, Intravenous pyelography (IVP), kidney or abdominal ultrasound or retrograde ureteropyelography. At this point, continue any medications to control the pain. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar m tn I spent the next couple of months having those attacks less frequent with a healthy diet and proper exercise of running. One month ago I had severe pain radiating from my kidneys. I have had kidney stones and cysts in the past so I immediately went to a high water/cranberry juice intake. I took a urine test at the doctor and it showed that there was hematuria. At work my legs started to hurt and go numb. The numbness went away and now I have muscle twinges. I also have constipation.
Avatar f tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! A flank pain is generally due to kidney stones. Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, infection in kidney, constipation, ovary involvement in women, can all cause lower right abdomen pain that is felt in the flank and back too. Hence if you have any other symptoms apart from the pain, then these conditions should be seriously looked into. Alternatively, it could be a pain in the back (spinal region).
Avatar f tn Oh and I have been admitted to hospital twice with this they told me they suspect kidney stones then my kidney function was low then I was having retention which left me with a catherter on for six weeks then they said it was a migrated clip was causing the pain then then I will be on low dose antibiotics long term to end up with nothing really fed up know!
Avatar f tn Went to my reg MD - he did a Renal sonogram and blood test (thought maybe kidney stones). Everything came back normal. Still having pain. Sometimes its slight and sometimes its strong - either a soreness or poking (weird). Have to go back to MD on monday - he said i may need an abdominal CT scan. Worried worried worried. Any thoughts? Could it be kidney stones that were not detected?
Avatar n tn It doubles me over at time and I feel like I am going to vomit. I was diagnosed with a kidney infection a little over a week ago and the pain came back yesterday at work. I had to go to medical because it was so bad. They found blood in the urine again and suggested I call my doctor. I feel warm like I have a fever but it is ok when I take it. I have to go in today to see her and she wants to blame everything on depression.
Avatar f tn No other symptoms besides pain? Does the pain come after meals? Is it relieved by BMs? Do you get relief from pressing your back against a wall? I'm thinking gallbladder. If an ultasound doesn't reveal stones, they could do a HIDA scan.
543171 tn?1215335182 recently i was working and feel to the floor in terrible agony....grasping my left flank..peeing blood very red in color..pain seemed to lessen so i continued to work for about 4 weeks in constant pain due to holidays last year and job responsibilities..when i got the first chance to see a dr..i went to see a urologist who is local to me..they found nothing wrong with me so they ordered test after test with still no answers...
Avatar f tn Other than the pain, I have really no other symptoms. I had a endo and colonoscopy last year..and it showed gastritis..but after the ct scan in february...the doctor has no idea what could be wrong. I originally thought maybe pancreas issues...but with the ct normal...
Avatar f tn Is there anyone that may have kidney stones, and other flank pain that may not be related to each other? OR a similiar situation that was met with results?! He is a 31 year old, smoker and coffee drinker. Also had his Gall Bladder removed 2 years ago. I really hope that there is someone within this forum that may have some opinions, ideas, thoughts, advice, or personal experience with this type of thing!
Avatar n tn I just can't get over how that excruciating pain felt like kidney pain...almost as if it was having difficulty filtering something I took. I don't wake up to urinate at night, but this other pain I have been experiencing the past couple of weeks does wake me up between 4am to 6 am. That's what it did this morning, but turned into something awful.
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 My urologist does not feel that the kidney stones that I have in the left kidney are the cause of my pain, so I am stumped because the pain seems to be similar to the pain that I had in the past just prior to having the lithotripsy done.
1712422 tn?1443341101 The worst symptom for me was it felt like a knife being twisted back n forth in my back!! Terrible pain!!! I also felt like I had to have a bowel movement, but never could go! I was very nauseous too!! :-( felt cold n clamey, like flu-ish..
Avatar f tn Shortly after I had my gallbladder removed on 3/19/15 I started having severe side (flank) pain. This pain moved from my side up my back. I would be up for hours with the pain and only during the night did I need to go to the bathroom what seemed like every 5 minutes. They did an ultrasound and urine test. There was blood in my urine so they treated it as a UTI and prescribed Bactrim. My ultrasound did not show anything that would cause the pain.
