The government now recommends that hormone replacement pills only be used to relieve menopause symptoms, in low doses for the shortest possible time. The new results on kidney stones are unlikely to change that advice.

The study appears in Monday's Archives of Internal Medicine.
Avatar f tn Urologist performed cystocopy (normal), ultrasound (normal with R kidney hydronephrosis), CT scan showed no hydronephrosis but two 2mm non obstructing LEFT kidney stones. I keep having symptoms of what feels like uti that subsides with drinking a lot of water. Macrobid removes all symptoms while i'm on it but they return 2 days after I stop taking them. I don't have any other symptoms, the pain I usually feel is bladder discomfort and pain in urethra, some burning and urgency.
Avatar n tn 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...she was told to drink lot's of water, as much as 2 -2 liter bottles a day.
Avatar n tn An utra sound found nothing unusual. The urologist thinks it is either kidney stones or the residual effects of a bad infection. He would like me to get a CT. I am concerned as I have had 3 CT scans after a PE in both lungs 2 years ago after delivery. What are your thoughts? He does not think it is IC because it came on so suddenly. He said that the urine cultures were tainted due to the antibiotics. I can go 2-3.5 hours between void but I am holding it. What are your thoughts?
Avatar m tn A person who has had kidney stones often gets them again in the future. Kidney stones often occur in premature infants. Some types of stones tend to run in families. Certain kinds of stones can occur with bowel disease, ileal bypass for obesity, or renal tubule defects. There are different types of kidney stones. The exact cause depends on the type of stone. Calcium stones are most common. They occur more often in men than in women, and usually appear between ages 20 - 30.
Avatar m tn Wow , thanks so much for everyones information. I am a 44 yr. old female, I was caught off guard yesterday while walking to work. I was overcome with severe pain on one side of my back and stomach area. It was very hot here yet I would get chills and was feeling like I needed to vomit. Some dizziness and hard to even speak. I have given birth 9 times and would much rather do it 100 times more then go thru this pain, it is relentless !
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.
Avatar n tn Symptoms occur primarily in adults aged 20-50 years; however, infants as young as 2 years and adolescents have shown clinical symptoms.

1522652 tn?1291241954 My back, hips, neck, I had frequent headaches in the morning, the hot flashes and night sweats were constant, I had intractable heart burn, and had passed 6 kidney stones in 2 years. (I passed them at home-not something I'd recommend...) I was so tired that everything was a chore. The kidney stones gave me UTI's (I learned after the first one to take Uristat (pyridium -urinary tract numbing agent) and Cranberry capsules which kept the infections from starting.
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 I still have no other symptoms and feel fine. I wonder if I might have a kidney stone that has moved in to the ureter and lodged, and is perhaps small enough to not cause further discomfort. I think it's odd for just the leukocytes and no nitrates for this length of time. Please advise.
Avatar n tn When there's widespread numbness and tingling along with other scattered symptoms, it's difficult to localize the lesion to specific spots in the brain that may be damaged by MS. However, there is a small amount of patients who DO have nonspecific, vague neurologic symptoms that don't localize anywhere and the MRI shows classic MS spots throughout the brain and spinal cord. In your case, though, the MRI (should have brain AND spine) was clean which makes the diagnosis of MS much less likely.
1832268 tn?1326819610 My Yorkie was diagnosed with kidney failure in September 2014. She was in the hospital for 10 days (over $6,000) where they ran tests and found out that she developed kidney failure from eating chicken jerky treats. It is called Fanconi syndrome and the FDA has been investigating the deaths and illness of several dogs due to eating chicken jerky treats. I purchased Dingo Market Cuts from Walmart and both my dogs got sick throwing up and with diarrhea.
748543 tn?1463449675 I, as most responsible medical professionals, believe in using the most conservative successful form of treatment. As one who treats patients with most severe TMD symptoms, I can assure you that my patients are unable to manage the pain associated with these conditions by simply receiving counseling on their habits. What's more is that I find that dental malocclusion is frequently one of the principle causes of the TMD.

Avatar n tn To AmIDoneYet? I suffer from Depression and have had to up my doses of AD two-fold during treatment. In addition, because I was feeling so irritable, impatient, and short-tempered, I was able to get what I call "nice pills" from my psyschiatrit. These are anti-anxiety drugs that work like Zanax but without the addictive quality. These have really helped me increase my patience with folks who love and support me. And I am so greatful for this. The name of the drug is Neurontiin.
Avatar m tn The safety of spirulina in pregnant and nursing women, young children, and individuals with kidney or liver disease has not been determined.
Avatar n tn I had no other symptoms - but was eventually diagnosed with Stage 1C ovarian cancer - I'm 28 (in the uk too) at the moment. The symptoms you describe are symptoms of ovarian cancer, but they are symptoms of many other problems too. Having a large cyst can cause those problems and the vast majority of cysts are benign - especially in women our age group. Unluckily I was not in the vast majority - but it has been caught at a very early stage so for that I'm very thankful.
1216899 tn?1288573925 I'm going to list my symptoms, so that others may have some insight, in layman's terms. I hope anyone else with the deficiency would also post theirs.
Avatar n tn 3) distal ureteral stones in women of childbearing age; 4) multiple stones; 5) impacted stones; 6) ESWL failures. The good thing is that both ESWL and ureteroscopy are performed in an outpatient setting. I hope this is enough information to help you make an informed decision. More individualized care is available at the Henry Ford Hospital and its urban campuses by calling (1 800 653 6568). We can also arrange local accommodations through this number if this is your need.
Avatar n tn On a soft surface your hip bone sinks in and you are putting pressure on your tailbone (coccyx). Women have more problems than men (I'm female) because we are built differently. My doctor may do an MRI because he says with my kind of injury there may also be a compression of discs. -- Once I started sitting on special cushions, the pain has lessoned significantly. One of the worst things I did was take a long car trip -- before I knew about special cushions -- the pain worsened after that.
6850426 tn?1385502685 Kidney stones do not cause pain or problems until they start to move or press on tissue. Kidney stones come in different sizes and can sometimes be very small like a grain of sand, but can still do damage if they scratch the linings. Some stones (like grains of sand or sediment) can pass through the urinary tract without you knowing that you have had a stone. Do you get any physical symptoms at the time that microscopic blood is detected?
Avatar f tn Many autoimmune liver problems are much more common in women than in men. In your case, I don't think your liver cyst is something to be overlooked, as is the case with many small, benign liver cysts. I think it's saying "X marks the spot". Hope this helps, and good luck! You deserve to be treated and feel better soon, so you can get on with enjoying life.
Avatar n tn I realized I was over medicated and found an excellent treatment center in Michigan. I spend 10 days there and I'm doing much better. I learned that if I had stopped cold turkey I could have died. It's be 21 days now and I am still in withdrawal. I take 2 meds to help, but I have a long way to go. My adictionologist says that it can take up to 2 years to feel better, but I should feel better after 1 month and much better after 3 months.
Avatar n tn My symptoms are as below; mass amounts of White half moon shaped flakes in urine, test for uti-neg. They x-rayed lower; showing nothing, I could not have them do a CT, I can't afford it. I have severe rt.FLANK pains, low grade fever daily, and many attacks which appear to gall bladder, but no pain as you press into that area.
Avatar n tn I have been to a GYN, Urologists, primary care physicians, you name it I have seen them. I have had kidney stones removed, laproscopic surgery (nothing abnormal) and a cystopy (spelling). I was actually hoping that the Lap would indicate that they had found something wrong so they could fix it. My GYN seems to think our next step is to remove the uterus, I just don't see how this can help.
Avatar n tn GYN examined me, said she couldn't find any cause of worry and put me on meds for a UTI. Went to ER in Dec and CT showed kidney stones. Got rid of kidney stones and pain continued. Went back to GYN in March and she finally decided to do an transvaginal ultrasound. It showed a 5cm cyst on right ovary w/ a "bloodclot" in it. She didn't seem worried and told me to follow up w/ another transvaginal US in 6-7 weeks.
Avatar f tn Apparently this is a common occurrence for women who have ever been pregnant and moreso in women who have had c-sections. There is significant trauma to the entire pelvic floor area which supports the bladder and uterus during the birthing process. No one should have to live with this frequent urination problem when there is treatment available. Again look online for a physical therapist who treats pelvic floor disorders.

I have had "something" wrong with me since September 1997. I went to my primary care physician for back pain, abdominial pain, vomiting, and occasional UTI. Since that time I have had over 10 UTI.
211940 tn?1267884866 I have had kidney stones, in the past, but that was several years ago. Normally, when I get the UTI "symptoms", I take some cranberry pills, and drink lots of water. This usually clears it up, if not that same day, in a day or two. I normally take, cranberry pills, every day, as part of my regiment of keeping UTI's away. However, I have had the UTI "symptoms", this time, for almost 3 weeks now.
