Kidney stones symptoms overactive bladder

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones symptoms overactive bladder


Avatar m tn As far as I know, these are the only treatments - "Watchful waiting About 85 percent of the time, kidney stones are small enough to pass during urination. This occurs usually within 72 hours of the start of symptoms. The best treatment for these small stones is to drink plenty of water (as much as 2 to 3 quarts per day), stay physically active and wait to pass the stone.
Avatar f tn ) My urologist suggested that perhaps my severe UTI/Kidney Infection triggered overactive bladder symptoms and prescribed me three weeks of Detrol LA to determine if that would alleviate my symptoms. I have only been on the Detrol for 2 days so far and am waiting to see if it will offer some relief. The other only medication I have ever taken is 500 mg of Metformin once a day in the evening to control my body’s overproduction of insulin.
Avatar f tn My gut told me that I should NOT take any drugs prescribed for my bladder but that the problem was located to a different position, even though the symptoms would fall into the category of overactive bladder or IC. I actually tried to visit different doctors (after having visited more than 9, I decided to see a gastrenterologist). And yeap...Irritable bowel syndrome cure has helped me sooo very much.
Avatar f tn It's not overactive bladder, it's clearly kidney stones. I have brought the ones I've caught in to him and yet still nothing to help relieve the pain. I was also told during one of the ER visits that my colon is inflamed. I've read this can happen from antibiotics.
Avatar n tn i would also like to tell you about a condition that my mother suffers from called OVERACTIVE BLADDER alot of your symptoms are also similar to this condition and it can never be cured but there is medication for it that my mum takes a pill a day and it has eased her urgency and frequency to urinate, she says its a godsend so maybe some of you might like to look into that condition also.
Avatar n tn The infection could be at any level from bladder to ureter to kidney. It could also be due to a stone in the urinary tract. What you need is a urine culture and sensitivity test done. You can also give it for culture and sensitivity in a sterile bottle provided by the lab. This will tell you what organism is causing the infection and what antibiotic will kill it permanently.
Avatar n tn Sounds like you may have overactive bladder symptoms (the feeling of having to urinate a lot, in the absence of a bladder infection). This can sometimes occur in women with pelvic pain, of muscular origin. The thing that needs to be ruled out is bladder infection (this can be accomplished with a urine culture- the kind that takes 3 days to perform, not the in office dipstick test).
Avatar m tn This also showed no obvious problems and so urologist said I had an overactive bladder as a result of a UTI he suspected I had 2 months previously????. I took the Vesicare which did help the symptoms but more in a kind of just numbed the whole area kind of way. I 've used up all of the tablets and am reluctant to go get some more as I feel it's just masking the real problem. I've now had this for 3 months and it's very depressing.
211043 tn?1337054301 Boy, does this sound familiar! Yes! I've had major bladder issues. Back in 1990, I had a lap where a small amount of endo was removed off the bladdar, as well as my female organs. 18 years later, I'm back to square one. The bladder has been my main source of urgency and PRESSURE. It always feels as if I have to go pee.
409451 tn?1206900232 I was wondering if anyone could summarize the symptoms of ovarian cancer/bladder tumors, etc...?
Avatar n tn they put me on oxybutynin even though i explained my doctor that i have none of the symptoms of overactive bladder. she said to give it a try. i am almost 2 weeks using it but it does absolutely nothing. so far thats all i have tried so cant really help here, but it sure is frustrating.
Avatar n tn I had mine inserted this past Feb. I just started having the exact same symptoms. I am going to take a hpt. Let me know if you find out whats causing your problems.
Avatar f tn I had same symptoms, I have now been diagnosed with an overactive bladder which I'm told by my Dr can have the same symptoms as a UTI, hope this helps.
Avatar f tn It is very likely that you have chronic cystitis which is a chronic low level UTI that does now always show on standard UA, since it basically is a low level bacteria that live in your bladder wall etc. You may also have Interstitial Cystitis. The symptoms of these are the same and only a good urologist with time can help determine which maybe causing your symptoms both have increased symptoms after intercourse.
Avatar f tn Lower back pain and frequent urination can be due to spinal causes causing pinched nerve, diabetes, interstitial cystitis, overactive bladder syndrome, neurological diseases, urinary incontinence and bladder dysfunction. In females, urethritis has to be ruled out. It is a primarily female syndrome in which women suffer from irritative bladder symptoms (urinary frequency, urgency, burning and a hesitant or slowed urinary stream) in the absence of any objective urologic findings.
Avatar m tn Hello there, The common causes of pain after urination and abnormal sensations are urinary tract infection, kidney stones, cystitis, bladder infection and overactive bladder etc.Urine leakage occurs when the bladder doesn't empty completely. A urinalysis test to rule out any infection or other causes of incontinence may be done. Ultrasound for observing the kidneys, bladder, and urethra may be helpful. A clinical examination and work up is important for correct diagnosis and management.
Avatar n tn I had an ultrasound done of kidneys and bladder to rule out kidney stones and it shows nothing wrong. I have had 3 urine tests done and those came back negative for any infection. I have lower back pain but dont know if thats related or not, no other symptoms, no pain, no blood in the urine. My labs are normal. The Dr handed me Detrol LA and said maybe overactive bladder but arent more tests supposed to be done to rule out other things first? I am a 47 yr old female.
Avatar n tn If these are also negative, then you may have the condition known as 'overactive bladder'. Although the most common therapy is medication (e.g., Detrol, Ditropan, Enablex), other therapies exist. Examples of these are timed voiding, kegel exercises (with emphasis on the relaxation part), pelvic flor physical therapy (performed weekly by a trained pelvic floor physical therapist), and vaginal electrical stimulation (which can be self-administered at home twice daily for 8 weeks).
Avatar m tn For the record, I had a sonogram done which revealed normal post-void residual. I went through the standard medications for overactive bladder with no result, and am currently trying bladder retraining and physical therapy. I wonder if anyone could shed any light on this.
Avatar m tn These symptoms can indicate pathological conditions of Urinary Bladder like Overactive bladder,Urinary incontinence due to Detrusor muscle incompetence or bladder sphincter incompetence, more commonly due to Recuurent Kidney stones or uncomplicated Urinary Tract infections or totally idiopathic/ Functional incompetence due to anxiety or stress. Masturbation may trigger urge for urination when peaks of orgasm is achieved.
Avatar n tn I have taken some antibiotic even without bateria present, it doesn't help. I also took some medication for overactive bladder, doesn't help too. What should I do? thanks. Please advise.
Avatar f tn It feels like a mixture of Overactive Bladder and Urge Incontinence. I do not have health insurance so have only been to the ER once, and they didn't know what it was. It goes away and comes back several times during a month, never in a set schedule. There is no burning, itchiness or any symptoms of a UTI with this.
Avatar m tn Kidney stones, bladder conditions/infections, prostate issues, drinking too much coffee or other diuretic, and drinking too much alcohol. There are actually tons of other issues which can go on for quite a while that we normally wouldn't catch on to until they get bothersome.
Avatar m tn About a month ago, I also got sick and thought this might be the early stages of kidney stones. I went to a instant care clinic and had a urinalysis done. The clinic's analysis was limited, but they found no bacteria and (I think) no blood. In doing research on my symptoms, IC is what seemed to be the closest match, and I have tried to avoid the main problem foods (citrus, carbonation, chocolate, alcohol and coffee).
Avatar m tn Eating a high-protein, low-fiber diet, high vitamin D levels, overactive parathyroid glands, family history of kidney stones, kidney or urinary infections, Crohn’s disease all can cause kidney stones repeatedly. It is suggested to be screened for above mentioned disorders. Consult a nephrologist and take treatment as advised. The size and location of stone will help in deciding the exact course of management. Do keep me posted. Best luck and regards!
Avatar n tn He put me on toviaz which is a drug for an overactive bladder? My bladder is more painful than overactive? Anway. When he did a pelvic exam it really hurt when he touched my bladder. He is sending me for a bladder/kidney ultrasound next friday to check on everything and make sure there are no stones. So still waiting for answers here.

Avatar f tn I'd had elevated calcium levels documented for 2 years (and had unknowingly had symptoms for 4). I formed kidney stones (7 of them!), gall stones, had headaches every day, urinated about every 30 min all day and night, and had chronic back pain and heartburn...also had symptoms of perimenopause...The morning after the surgery, I felt different...No headaches, heartburn, back aching...
Avatar n tn there was also a surgery to remove stones. (That was done before the last bladder/cystisis thing.) Concerned Mother....
Avatar m tn About three months ago I started having stomach discomfort. Soon after these pains developed, they started to make me feel like I was bloated and still had to use the restroom, despite my ability to do so regularly. Since this time the sensation has changed several times most notably to constant stomach cramping just above my navel and sharp pains near my xiphoid process. I am also having sever symptoms of a UTI, incontinence, gag reflex, as well as pain in my right side illiac.
