Avatar n tn ordered a IVP, no stones were found, only delayed clearance on the right kidney. He ordered a hecial scan, again no stones but he did state their was severe scarring in the right kidney pelvis. He ordered a diuretic renogram, that showed no obstruction but reduced function in the right kidney (25R-75L). My pain continued, espically after drinking fluids. I had gallbladder test and liver test, those were ruled out. I Dec. I had a stent placed in my right kidney. The pain was gone.
Avatar n tn 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). Renal colic can be associated with nausea and vomiting due to the embryological association of the kidneys with the intestinal tract. Hematuria (bloody urine) is commonly present due to damage to the lining of the urinary tract.
Avatar m tn I'm figuring that kidney stones take a while to form and that, if I have kidney stones and possibly an infection, it's likely that I had the kidney stones first and they contributed to the infection, rather that having an infection first that contributed to the kidney stones (sorry if this sounds confusing).
Avatar f tn Just went to hospital for that pain thinking it was my back and trun out to be renal colic pain . My concern is ive had it for some time now getting severe headaches and sweating at night. also pain to inside of my thigh like a cramp that just started as the pain in groin got worse I am concern that this may be more then dx.
Avatar f tn I had 5 years of tests that every doctor accounted to kidney stones until a lasix renal scan showed decreased function on my right side. My second surgery was due to nephroptosis (falling kidney), which the surgeon said had been a problem all along but having the pyeloplasty bought me a little time with lessened pain. Going to a larger/teaching hospital the physicians and professors all had a different background and were able to pool their ideas in an effort to help me.
Avatar f tn this in fact is called renal colic. It means that the stone or stones are moving. I do not agree with your doctor that kidney stones are not life threatening. If they get lodged in the ureter or block the flow of urine this is an emergency. In fact at the age of 39 a piece of stone got lodged in my ureter and I was extremely ill. The surgeon said that I was operated in time because there was a build up of pressure that had built up in the kidney due to the blockage.
Avatar m tn - calcium oxalate struvite uric cystine The rarest form of kidney stones is Cystine stones. Cystinuria is an inherited condition that affects the amount of acid that is passed in the urine. Struvite stones are caused by recurrent kidney infections. Uric stones are caused when there is too much uric acid in the urine with rheumatic conditions like gout. Calcium oxalate stones can from with too much protein in the diet, too much calcium and Vitamin D and through dehydration.
Avatar n tn but i sit here , on the toilet typing this , as for the last two days i have had horrific cramps and diahorra (sp) . Its heart warming to know that all my symptoms are of those relating to kidney stones .
Avatar n tn I'm 22 years old, and have suffered with kidney stones for 2 years, ranging from 1 mm to one thats in me right now which is over 10mm! On two separate occasions, when being seen in the ER while in ridiculous amounts of pain, I have been told by doctors that I shouldn't be in pain because there is no obstructing stone. Bull, I say. Renal Colic is a very distinct type of pain, and believe me, there is no mistaking it. I had one doctor go so far as to tell me it must be muscular back pain..
Avatar n tn Hi, It seems to be what is called renal colic, typically associated with stones in renal tract. Kidney stones, also called renal calculi, are solid concretions (crystal aggregations) of dissolved minerals in urine. 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.

Avatar f tn I don't know if it is kidney stones or a back spasm. I saw blood when I wiped on Tuesday, on Friday I fell on my hardwood floor. 2 days later on Sunday night I had a slight pain in my left and right sides. It wasn't severe. I thought the pain was similar to the pain I experience when I don't drink water for a while. I drank water all night Sunday and Monday at work. Monday evening at home I took a hot bath and the pain got worse on my right side and my back. The pain was excruciating.
Avatar n tn With 4 larger ones, 2 in each kidney. I also have nephrocalcinosis. The left kidney has the larger stones and a cyst but only hurts occasionally, if I am passing a stone and sometimes if feels like the larger one gets stuck somewhere. The right kidney however I live with chronic pain, which we have connected to a chronic infection and a narrowing that makes them more painful when the little ones pass! So I would rule out infection first. Stones can stay in your kidney for ever.
192055 tn?1263559137 I have every symptom of kidney stones and its runs in every female in my family. -For 2 weeks had extreme sharp pack pains -Then turned into a dull, constant pain in my lower right back (kidney) -Went to the doc, found blood, no bacteria, in my urine -Slowly both kidneys started to hurt... -All of a sudden, one night, i was sitting down, I got really hot, started to sweat, and felt nauseated. I felt something moving in my left abdomin... not a pro but felt like it could be a stone moving down.
Avatar m tn The most common cause for this type of pain which starts at the back just below the rib cage and radiates to the front and goes into the pelvis is 1. Renal colic. It occurs as episodes of pain recurring in nature. The pain is spasmodic in nature as the ureter is trying to push through the obstruction, which is usually a renal stone. The ureter is the tubular structure that connects the kidney to the bladder. So each time the urine tries to pass through the obstruction it causes severe pain.
974371 tn?1424656729 Hello and hope you are doing well. This could also be renal colic. Sometimes the stones may not be picked up by imaging studies. But this is usually accompanied by blood in the urine. The other causes for the pain could be infections of the bowel, prolapsed intervertebral disc or inflammatory diseases of the colon. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I am a 26 year old female and I have been dealing with kidney stones for the past 9 years. I pass atleast 2 stones every month. Recently, I had SEVERE pain in my left flank and went to the ER. Had a CT scan done and it showed I had several stones in both kidneys. I was given morphine at the hospital and vicodin to take home.
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 These substances can create small crystals that become stones. The biggest risk factor for kidney stones is dehydration. Kidney stones may not produce symptoms until they begin to move down the tubes (ureters) through which urine empties into the bladder. When this happens, the stones can block the flow of urine out of the kidneys. This causes swelling of the kidney or kidneys, causing pain. The pain is usually severe. Kidney stones are common.
Avatar f tn Are you seeing a doctor for this? Have you ever had kidney stones? Another possibility is renal colic, this can happen with or without kidney stones. It is extremely painful, almost like a contraction when giving birth but worse.
Avatar n tn Hi, "Nonobstructing stones produce no symptoms or signs apart from hematuria. Stone passage produces renal colic that usually begins as a mild discomfort and progresses to a plateau of extreme severity over 30–60 minutes. If the stone obstructs the uretero-pelvic junction, pain localizes to the flank; as the stone moves down the ureter, pain moves downward and anterior. Stones at the uretero-vesicular junction often cause dysuria and urinary frequency mistaken for infection.
Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? Renal colic is a very severe pain that can present suddenly and without warning. It is usually caused by stones in the kidney, renal pelvis or ureter. The pain is caused by dilatation, stretching and spasm of the ureter. It can present with pain, hematuria, dysuria, frequency, urgency etc. Treatment involves conservative or surgical mangement. Treatment depends on the size of the stone and duration of presence of stone in the urinary tract and complications present.
Avatar f tn The doctor can arrange for a blood test to check her kidney function and also send your daughter for a ultrasound scan and referral to a urologist if there is a problem still with the kidney or confirmation of a kidney stone. Stones can be extremely small like a grain of sand or much bigger. But they do cause pain and discomfort when they start to move and can cause recurrent kidney infections as they damage the inside of the urinary tubes as they move.
Avatar f tn Yes, gallbladder I think is typically on the right side under the rib (for me at least) but it does shoot intense pain up through the shoulder blades in the back and/or around the flank area in the back, too. What made me bring up Gallbladder was the amount of time she had for each episode and then it subsided. The short duration falls into similar Gallbladder "attacks" that I've had, but Kidney stones can come and go with renal colic, too .. Does it hurt the next day anywhere?
Avatar m tn So i was told I have two small kidney stones and have most likely recently passed a third. What kind of pain can I expect and is the pain I'm having normal? I've been having some pain in the lower stomach and right testicle when I wake up which usually goes away after I go to the bathroom. Then after being on my feet for 3-5 hours it starts again and gradually gets worse until I'm almost doubled over by the end of the day.
Avatar f tn Hello and hope you are doing well. This could be renal colic. Small stones can obstruct the passage of urine and when the body tries to 'push' against the blockade this results in colic, which is severe attacks of pain. This is more so as there is blood in the urine. The other causes for the pain could be infections of the bowel and bladder, prolapsed intervertebral disc or inflammatory diseases of the colon.
Avatar f tn If you have kidney stones moving - they can take months to come down if they are moving; you would experience pain in the kidney area, or have renal colic (like wind pains in the belly). As they come down they can scratch and aggravate the tubes and hence cause infections. With the bladder problem you are experiencing again this could be that a stone is in the bladder. The other reason is that you may have an infection in the bladder (Cystitis).
Avatar n tn Renal colic, relative ureteropelvic junctioin obstruction -------===================================
Avatar f tn Sadly constantly passing stones is one of the most difficult and frustrating parts of MSK, on top of that we can have chronic renal colic pain that is caused not by stones but by many other MSK related issues as well! This makes the pain even harder to deal with, not to mention that many times are stones do not show up BUT THE PAIN IS VERY REAL!!
