Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones symptoms headache


Avatar n tn Hello, Nephrolithiasis or stones in kidneys does not cause dizziness but if you are taking any drug for kidney stones, it can be responsible for the kidney stones. You need to consult a physician and get the other causes of dizziness like postural hypotension (blood pressure falling with change of position), internal ear problems and cervical spondylitis or compression of cervical spinal nerves ruled out.
554628 tn?1362781519 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 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.
1929539 tn?1327254032 I haven't tried Topomax because I've had kidney stones. I will say I think I'm having some high pressure HA's also but these are minor. I just sit up and they go away. I have seen my NS for follow up and he said everything looks good. I had a MRI a few weeks ago and they didn't see a leak. These HA's are different. I've asked about other conditions like EDS but drs say I'm fine. (Even though I think it's odd that my dd has chiari also. I even asked her NS about EDS and he said no.
Avatar f tn I've had a severe, persistent, incessant headache for four months. The symptoms are bizarre, and came on very rapidly. It started as a cap of pain at the top of my head, sometimes squeezing, sometimes pressure, then burning and tingling. It then spread to the rest of my head, sometimes on one side, sometimes the other. Sometimes back at the top, sometimes at the back, or behind the ears. In other words, the pain travels.
Avatar m tn o Kidney stones induced by trauma: 1999 : severe bleeding, very small stones passed.
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 It was found that my stone was calcium based and I was told to avoid all dairy products as well as some fruit and veg. There are 4 different types of kidney stones. Unfortunately, once you have had kidney stones the chances of getting another one are much higher.
Avatar m tn The only other weird symptoms I have, although I can't imagine if or how they could be related, is that my lymph nodes in the back of my neck seem slightly tender, and after I exercise/shower, I get extremely itchy hands for about 10-15 minutes... I am worried that I may have kidney disease, or stones, or an infection. There has not been any blood in my urine that I have noticed. If anyone could help shed light on this, I would appreciate it very much.
Avatar n tn They said they didnt see any infection and couldn't explain how it could have cleared up so quickly. She also didn't have elevated white blood cells. No kidney stones were found. She finally got better after 6 weeks. Here it is barely March and we were back the ER again with the same symptoms. They are still stumped. Can anyone give us an idea what we are dealing with? or point us to the correct specialist?

1368667 tn?1278200895 I had always got bad headaches here & there & would have to take like ibuprofen to get ride of them! Well abot 2 months ago i got this really bad headache & it was so bad that i couldnt sleep, or close my eyes or anything! Everything i did made it hurt worse! I went to DR was gaven medicine for sinus infection & it just releaved it a little bit but ended up back at DR office because the my head was realy bad again & the first medicine gave me thrush in my throat!
Avatar f tn The doc said they were going to further test my samples but that it was looking like a kidney infection or kidney stones. Im supposed to hear more info in two days. But i am a little concerned.... ok no im not going to lie im a little scared. Everyone I speak to finds my symptoms odd and the fact that my illness came back is odd too. I just want to know if anyone can relate to me or if anyone has any other ideas of what it might be or any advice, anything! Thanks for reading.
Avatar f tn Dehydration can give you headaches, as well as concentrate your urine and can result in kidney stones. This is why I suggested you get your urine checked to make sure your waterworks are OK.
Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Sulfamethoxazole and blood pressure are not related. Fluctuations in blood pressure can occur. If persistently elevated it needs therapy. Did you mean you have pain in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen? If the pain is due to a problem from the liver like hepatitis, you should have associated symptoms like nausea and vomiting. Are you an alcoholic? The pain could be from the gall bladder too.
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 m tn The term headache can not describe the event that took place. I have had kidney stones, and would much rather experience that pain than the pain I had with my headache. I was moving things around the house and lifted a weight bench barely off the floor when I felt something in my head start to tingle, and within a second my entire head burst into pain. I literally fell to the floor but got up quickly. I was very cognitive but also realized something serious was happening.
Avatar m tn All of this can be related to your kidney problem. As far as your headache goes, it sounds as if you have a tension headache which can be from all of symptoms you have been having. Especially because you are pregnant you are more likely to become worried and more stressed. Tension headaches can also be caused during pregnancy due to back pain. Being exhausted, and feeling weak, as well as your stomach problem can all be related to your pregnancy.
969276 tn?1257886004 A few days after the first severe headache and vomiting episode, I was in the ER with kidney stones. I saw a urologist, he said I had 5 stones and kidneys full of sand. In the last 6 months, at least once a month, sometimes more I get a severe headache and I throw up with each one. I went to get an MRI, that revealed I have an arachnoid cyst in the posteria fossa. Do you think my kidney problem could be related to the location of the cyst.
Avatar n tn If you didn't have the spine imaged, you should talk to your doc as MS can show up there too. Hypothyroidism can certainly be a cause of your symptoms. Once treated adequately, your symptoms may improve. Another test that may be helpful is an EMG to see if this a problem of your peripheral nerves. Laboratory workup such as ANA, sed rate, blood count and electrolye profile can also help rule out other potential problems such as lupus and other rheumatological disorders.
Avatar f tn I lost the feeling in my left index finger about 3weeks ago. I have also had a lot of kidney stones and issues with kidney pain. Don't know if any or all of the symptoms are related but I'm desperate for relief.
Avatar m tn After that, I took Mg supplements for a long time and it worked great, then went off of them recently because they were giving me small kidney stones (I was taking more than my previously damaged kidney could handle, I guess) and after a few weeks now without the supps, I can feel the muscle cramps in my calves starting to come back slowly. Time to find a dosage my poor little kidney can handle. Mg also helps you sleep.
Avatar f tn Hello, Hurting on the back in the lumbar region and urinary symptoms can be due to kidney infections or stones in kidney(nephrolithiasis).I think that getting an ultrasound abdomen or CT abdomen will help in confirming the diagnosis.Along with that renal function tests are also needed to exclude kidney pathology completely.
Avatar n tn The pain was also on the right side of my neck and I had pain on my right side near my kidneys. I have had kidney stones in the past and this was nowehre near that severe- more of a dull pain- but definitely the kidney area. Yesterday, BP was finally coming down (after 2 days of being extremely elevated) but it is still not back to baseline. Now, I am having pain in my mid-upper back (between shoulder blades) which is searing, but comes and goes.
969276 tn?1257886004 Its great LOL Dizziness, physical exercision like walking up 5 steps gives me a headrush. Vertigo, though only when I am laying down, dont know if thats truly vertigo. *Kidney stones (5 at once, and kidneys full of 'sand') no prior problems with kidneys, no family history, healthy diet and exercise. Constant headache, dull, throbbing pain that worsens when I cough, bend down, put my head down, etc.
737986 tn?1232302235 There is a strong possibility of migraine because nose bleeds have been known to occur in patients with migraine. Also his other symptoms like one sided headache, dizziness, visual and hearing problems are very suggestive of migraines. It is pertinent that he undergoes a complete clinical and neurological exam as these can also be symptoms of stroke. Please schedule an appointment with his GP as soon as possible. Write in to us to let us know how he is doing. Good luck!
633143 tn?1262137135 I was nervous because my father has a history of kidney stones, I'm 24, and I'm on a medication (Topomax) that makes me likely to get them. However I did not have any blood in my urine, my back was not tender to touch, there was no pain urinating, and the pain was not getting any worse. The day after the pain started, it began spreading into my buttox and down my whole right leg. I was walking through the grocery store and there were times it felt like I had to drag my leg.
Avatar f tn I was asymptomatic when my Ovarian Cancer was discovered by accident (I had kidney stones and my PCP sent me for an abdominal CT scan where they discovered it). I felt fine and had none of the "usual" signs that something was wrong (and something WAS very, very wrong!). My question is, are there symptoms for recurrance if it comes back?
