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 m tn So i went to a eregular doc last tuesday and they did see the 'seeds'. They said it was either kidney or bladder stones(second most common kind). Meanwhile i starred to have pain in the lymph nodes in the groin region, some testicular pain, and minor nausea and light headiness off and on. I have an appy with a P.A at a urology clinic tuesday. I have not past any stones since wed. and they pain while urinating has gotten better, but I am still have all the other symptoms.
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.
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.
18533109 tn?1465644152 Get It but ,Usually, an imaging test and an analysis of urine are done to diagnose stones. Tiny stones may cause no symptoms, but larger stones can cause pain in the area between the ribs and hips in the back. Sometimes stone formation can be prevented by changing the diet or increasing fluid intake.
Avatar f tn I've been having a lot of pain on my right side, front, back and side and the pain takes my breath away. I had CT scans and ultra sound to determine if I had kidney stones. Then they sent me for x-rays with contrast and I was told I had a floating Kidney. The nurse for his office said there was nothing that I could do for the pain. "Just deal with it". Wow how can I when the pain takes my breath away and the pain is so bad that I have to lay down in bed until it goes away.
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 n tn I am a 25 yr old male who has suffered with kidney stones periodically throughout my life. I passed my first kidney stone when I was 11 years old, and didn't really have a big problem until i hit my late teens. The worst of it has been the last two years-soon after i was diagnosed with Ulcerative colitis. My first question is could these be related? My other concearn is Doctors don't seem to be taking me seriously about the pain, I recently was admitted to the hospital for pain control...
472139 tn?1211336163 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. The resulting obstruction with dilation or stretching of the upper ureter and renal pelvis as well as spasm of muscle, trying to move the stone, can cause severe episodic pain, most commonly felt in the flank, lower abdomen and groin (a condition called renal colic).

4943237 tn?1428994695 I had the same symptoms but no pain down below. Extreme kidney pain. I had stones show up on a regular xray. When i went to doc and thought I had a UTI but the test came back negative so she sent me for xrays and that showed the stones. She sent me home and said drink lots of water and use a heating pad and pain reliever and wait for it to pass. She said if the pain got too unbearable to go to the emergency room. I ended up passing it but haven't had the symptoms again.
Avatar n tn It can be due to urinary tract infection,STD’s(sexually transmitted disease),prostates and kidney stones. Although yeast infections are common in females but males can also have it .
Avatar n tn Hi. I am a 14 year old male. I found out I had a kidney stone via CT scan approximately 2 months ago. My doctor said it was relatively small. But my problem here is that it still has not passed, despite the fact I have been drinking lots of water. Should I go back to my doctor? Or is this normal?
Avatar m tn The common causes of painful urination are urinary tract infection; cystitis, urethritis, kidney stones, sexually transmitted diseases and prostatitis.These are few possibilities. I will advise you to undergo all tests as advised by your doctor. An ultrasound of the urinary system may be helpful. Do write to me again with more details and test results. Best luck and take care!
Avatar m tn Is it normal for stones stuck in the kidney to cause so much pain?? Could the fact that I have pkd be making the pain from these stones worse...I guess I'll be headed back to er if pain doesn't let up before I run out of the few pills I have until I see my urologist. Any advice or knowledge would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn I went to the doctor the next day and was given dioxycillin for epididimytis, No improvement at all. Then I was diagnosed with Kidney stones, they were removed via cystoscopy, However they were barely visible on the IVP. Since then all IVP's have came back clean. There still has been no improvement in my condition, I notice it is hard to start a urination and it doesn't flow very fast, and a frequency of urination and it seems like I have to urinate when I don't.

Avatar m tn I don't know a lot about kidney stones, but my ex bf used to get them, and his doc told him that once a male gets kidney stones, he is more likely to get them again. You'll know in a couple of days if you pass them. And throw out the nylon underwear lol. You don't like them, they aren't good for your skin, etc. That way you won't be tempted to wear them on low-laundry days.
Avatar n tn I recently had my first bout with a kidney stone (30yr old male). It started with sudden extreme pain in my right flank. I was taken to the hospital via ambulance where they verified a 5mm stone. As there is a limited number of lithotripsy machines in the area, I was in the hospital for about 56 hours before I finally had surgery to install a stent and have the stone broken up.
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 m tn The common causes of your symptoms could be urinary tract infection, kidney stones,prostatitis,etc.Sexually transmitted infections like chlamydia,gonnorhea also cause difficulty in urination but they are usually associated with pain in the testicles ,discharge from the penis.In your case the closest possibility is severe urinary tract infection or kidney stones .Drink plenty of water and avoid aerated drinks. See an urologist.
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.
618766 tn?1221321332 which they did after they removed the stent some of my symptoms started all over again i also had kidney infection which was treated with medication, these symptoms are a burning sensation in the back noticable in the mornings when i wake up and also like someone droping hot wax around in my stomach region,(not into to hot wax thing) i have had A CT scan done a few weeks back, and guess what! i have a 3mm in my kidney. i dont want to go through all that again is there any thing else i can do?
Avatar f tn I just posted a comment for my symptoms and noticed your posting. It could very well be kidney stones or maybe an infection in your kidneys. I hope your appointment goes well and good luck.
