Kidney stones symptoms leg pain

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones symptoms leg pain


Avatar m tn Hello, Since the kindey stone is 7 mm, so the symptoms seem unrelated to the kidney stones. Since you are having pedal or leg edema, hence your cardiac, liver and kidney functions need to be assessed for which I suggest you to consult a physician immediately. 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).
Avatar f tn 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 <5.0mm usually move out on their own with a high % of non-complications, etc.
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.
409451 tn?1206900232 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. I always feel like I have a uti right before and during my period, and sometimes feel irritated "down there" after I pee--randomly throughout each month. I've also been bloated for about 2 months.
Avatar n tn Even I have had stone problem since many years. I get back pain or leg ache even when the stones are inside the kidney. Doctors have told me that if it is in the kidney it won’t pain but I disagree with them. I get very frustrated at times with this recurring problem. I have made dietary changes and also increased water consumption but new stones keep forming.
Avatar n tn Of course, I see similar symptoms in the postings, but, I'm confused as to what could cause the leg pain....does just being hypothyrloid bring that about...or is it medication. I have heard both, but that seems too vague. Appreciate your help.
Avatar f tn Hi everyone... Okay,so for the 7th time this year I have kidney stones again - I am a 20yr old female (and I live a healthy life) ... Doc put a stent in my right ureter cause my kidney is PACKED with stones! I had a UTI but that was treated in hospital when the stent was inserted... I am battling with my period,its like it just ran away or something... Can it just disappear? Like for 2months or longer?
Avatar n tn After a urine test revealed no UTI, but trace blood, I was sent for CT and my urine and blood sent to lab. The CT revealed no kidney stones. My urine had calcium oxade crystals (sp?) in it and my WBC count was up. The doctor assumed that I had passed a kidney stone and told me to take it easy. I have since returned home, and have not felt any relief. The pain has gotten worse. Now, when I bend down at the waist, cough, or take a wrong step, my legs go numb.
Avatar f tn Since there are several posts on Kidney stones, Id like to share my research results that could possibly afford relief to kidney stone sufferers. I am a recently retired ICU RN and I did not realize until now how important Magnesium is in our lives. Its important to know whats the right kind to take as well. This knowledge could help so many people out there .. if they only knew so I wanted to help spread the word......
Avatar f tn Hello CurlyQ, Welcome to the Pain Management Forum. I am sorry to hear about your kidney stones and the pain that they cause you. I have chronic kidney stones. I've yet to have a CT that did not reveal several. It is true that they should not hurt unless they are moving. It's called renal colic. However they can move without it being known. Several small stones can pass without being detected unless you are having CT's weekly. The last one I passed was almost 7mm.
Avatar n tn None of them can explain to why I keep getting kidney stones. Some stones have caused major pain and others have sat in my kidneys for years with no problems.The drs have done every and any test possible from blood work to CT's to MRI's and they still can not figure out why I keep getting the stones. The most recent test they did was a CT w/contrast to see if I had that sponge kidney disease. The test came back inconclusive. I know that the stones are made up of calcuim.
Avatar f tn She has no family history of kidney stones other then herself she is around 50-58 in age is very good at holding pain back but this is one pain she can't ignore. She also has a history of diabetes type 2 after I was born due to bad health care from a HMO.
Avatar n tn For low back pain and abdominal pain, conditions like kidney infections, urinary tract stones, appendicitis, spine disorders have to be ruled out. Seek consult with your primary physician for a complete assessment and diagnostic tests.A warm compress over the area and OTC analgesics may be able to help temporarily. Do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn The pain in the lower back can be due to compression of the nerves or 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. Are you a diabetic or do you take alcohol?Numbness and tingling are common in alcoholics and metabolic disorders like diabetes, hypothyroidism, and hypoparathyroidismThey can also be due to peripheral vascular disease, vitamin B12 deficiency or malnutrition.
Avatar m tn Hello, These symptoms can be due to kidney stones or infection, some infection of the genitourinary tract or due to inguinal hernia. In cases of hernia, a prominent bulge along with testicular pain is there and in cases of kidney or ureteric stones, pain during micturition may also be there. Lab investigations like complete blood examination, urine examination, ultrasound lower abdomen and sometimes a urethral swab will help in diagnosis. Treatment will be started thereafter.
1175033 tn?1492204828 Your situation is kind of confusing, if the pain does originate with your kidney, I think there would be other symptoms besides pain. For example, pain on urination, blood in urine, nausea and vomiting, constant urge to urinate. And supposedly, if it is a kidney problem, the pain will get worse when you gently press on the area of your back where your kidneys are. I don't think kidney pain radiates down into the legs.
Avatar m tn Ever since I was 18 I knew I was having kidney stone pain. Tons of X-rays done and the drs told me no stones, yet the next day I passed a 6mm stone and have been passing small stones almost every other day. There are weeks that go by where everything feels good but there are also weeks and months where I have sharp pains in my kidney with msk. I thought I was crazy because drs have been telling me that pain is not a symptom of msk.
Avatar f tn In the past two years he has been treated for stenosis of the spine, a fractured hip, kidney stones, and a serious bladder infection. His symptoms include lower back and leg pain, occasional blood in the urine, and high blood pressure. His cholesterol and lipids are also extremely high. He is currently taking an inflammatory prescription for the hip pain and a otc for bone replacement. The orthopedic surgeon assured him last week that he would need hip replacement at some time.

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 n tn I started calendaring his fevers and they now occur every two weeks- like clockwork. His fevers are occassionally accompnaied by leg pain and stomach pain. During the few days before his fever he is extremely fatigued- tired enough that he falls asleep sitting up. A CBC was done and indicated that he was anemic (his H&H was ~10 and ~30). Two weeks later, his H&H was normal.
Avatar n tn Back pain can also be a symptom of kidney stones. The other thing is the leg pain (one doctor told me) might be nerve pain. There is pressure on the nerve from the back. I don't know why they are saying it's not. I believe there is something else that can cause leg pain, something with the veins. You can google it. There's a special doctor, either a cardiologist or vascular doctor, I think, for this. I feel for you. I have so many problems and I often feel like I have to be Dr.
Avatar m tn As I'm sitting here writing this I keep getting intermittent pain in my left leg like on the left side of my calf, the pain will come on SUPER intense like the muscle is about to pop out and then last about 5 seconds and go away only to come back within like 5 mins or so. Also when it comes on its like I can feel kinda like a tingling sensation throughout my body and into like the back of my head. Kinda electric like feeling.
Avatar f tn I have had all kind of blood work and I get kidney stones, so I know that it has nothing to do with my kidney's. The itching can be bothersome because I too get the feeling of ants, bugs crawling all over. My mom has rls and she says that what I describe is what she gets. I have a appointment next week with my doctor I am going to mention it to him. These sensations are worse at night, and i do get it a little during the day. From what I have read it is common.
Avatar n tn In such case, the infections can never be fully treated unless the stones are removed or passed. Kidney stones could also cause symptoms of back and flank pain. The combination of the pain, abdominal symptoms, dehydration, side effects from the medications, and the toll that the infection takes on the system could lead to generalized feeling of weakness and lack of wellbeing. Regardless, you must be followed up closely by a urologist as you are. I hope all goes well.
Avatar n tn It all started with abdomen pain, lower back, and going down the leg. Doctors didn't know what was wrong with me. I also had kidney stones in the middle of all of this. I ended up in the emergency numerous times. The abdomen pain is what sent me to the hospital. That pain was worse than labor (knowing how that feels after having 2 children). My OBGYN thought maybe it was from the oblation that I had 4 years ago.
Avatar f tn I was prescribed an antibiotic, but a week later symptoms were still there. Pain then started around 4 weeks ago in my upper right abdomen and in my right hip. It wasn’t excruciating then but it was enough for me to visit my doctor. Actually the hip pain could be stabbing at times (bad enough to actually wake me at night), and the rest of the time it’s a constant dull ache. The pain is now also radiating down my thigh to my knee and groin, as well as having a constant back ache.
