Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones symptoms side effects


Avatar n tn there is a wide range of symptoms and side effects. A great source of reading on this question - would be Some here can also give first hand experience.
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 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 am not aware of kidney stones leading to such prolonged symptoms your father is experiencing, nor is Levaquin commonly associated with such symptoms. The upper endoscopy normally is a pretty comprehensive test, and if the results are non-revealing, you can consider a 24-hr pH study or motility study to exclude GERD or an esophageal motility disorder respectively. If the symptoms continue, I would recommend the second GI referral, preferably at a major academic medical center.
1740498 tn?1328966185 I had a fever, chills, severe pain (I would rate it 8 or 9, and I have had both gallstones and kidney stones--I know pain). This was with half of the Avonex dose siphoned out to start me off slower and having taken 600 mg of ibuprofen. It did not seem to make a dent. Although I was exhausted (pretty much my natural state, lol), I woke up feverish and sweating every 20 or 30 minutes until it calmed down around 4:00 am.
Avatar n tn However, caution should be made when taking supplements, since both drugs can alter kidney function and cause urinary symptoms (e.g. stones, dysuria) when not taken properly. I suggest that you ask your doctor first if these are safe for you to use. Thanks for asking.
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 n tn Does anyone have any experience with a virus that seems to effect the colon with symptoms that would suggest kidney stones? Symptoms include lower left back pain also noted in the front left lower abdomen. Diarreha noted at onset but no fever or vomiting. Pain reoccurs for minutes to hours but is not debilitating. My family dr. suggested a type of dysentary that manifests itself in the colon trough. I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience with this type of ailment.
Avatar n tn Does any of my symptoms sound like kidney stones? Or is these 2 doctors mistaking the side effects of Cipro for the symptoms of kidney stones?
Avatar n tn I have experienced a variety of side effects from treatment and would like to know what physical/mental side effects I can expect post-treatment? Thank you very much.
Avatar n tn Not to scare anyone, but I have been taking Prevacid (started out with Aciphex -- felt awful on it) for around 5 wks, off and then on, and have several side effects from it. READ the insert and exactly what side effects it can cause like I did. I found that my dry eyes, eye pain, hair loss, stomach pain, etc. are because of IT!!
293157 tn?1285877039 Now the gabapentine twice a day makes me tired? does gabapentin have a side effect that effects you teeth, gums.. etc..get so sore everyday for the past few days, not sure why. I though maybe one tooth, but the other parts of my mouth get sore as well? plus I'm so out of it, that I can't go outside... I'm so tired and can't seem to sit for long. I don't know if its the meds...cause the amount isn't that high... if not the meds...why is this happening?
Avatar n tn Has anyone experienced any bad side effects from the hcg shots? I am administering them myself and just want to know what to look out for.
Avatar n tn Maybe cut down to two beers, for a week, and then 1 beer, and then stop? Is cutting down slowly a good way to avoid side effects? Is my body getting used to not having alcohol? My stomach now feels better, less gas, and my apetite has increased. I'm not going to have any psychological withdrawls, I feel good without drinking, I'm just worried about the physical withdrawls.
Avatar f tn That's a really good way to get yourself flagged as an addict. Just tell your doctor what side effects you've experienced with different meds and let him guide you. That's his job.
Avatar n tn I hope I don't develop more stones. I am afraid of the possible side effects of lithotripsy (diabetes, high blood pressure). I also hate the stent and the pain meds. I have heard of an herbal remedy that might be useful to treat some types of stones. It's called Chanca Piedra and now days you dont have to go buy the leaves and make the tea. You can buy the extract online. I will try to avoid the foods that cause stones and take chanca piedra.
Avatar f tn I have primary hyperoxaluria type one my liver does not produce and enzyme that take the oxalates out of my body, causing many stones and kidney failure, if your having cronic stones get checked for it, a nephrologist is who u need to see, urologist only treat the the stones effects on you. Not what causes them, I will one day soon need a liver and kidney transplant they will not do only a kidney because it will be destroyed by my liver.
324184 tn?1308079803 He put me on Topomax [despite knowing that I have had several kidney stones in the past- which I found out that this medication can cause] anyways, I immediately started having a reaction to this medication... a burning sensation all over my scalp, face and neck. I called my Dr. and he said I may just be my body trying to adjust to the medication.... so I stayed on it 3 weeks and then couldn't take it anymore.
233616 tn?1312790796 Thinning hair (predominately in middle aged females on the front part of the scalp). Kidney Stones. High Blood Pressure (sometimes mild, sometimes quite severe; up and down a lot). Recurrent Headaches (usually patients under the age of 40). Heart Palpitations (arrhythmias). Typically atrial arrhythmias. WHY did I persist until I got a REAL diagnosis and NOT A SYMPTOMATIC treatment?? Because Liver patients cannot afford to be on ANY medication they don't NEED to be on.
Avatar m tn Hi Jodie, I too am having kidney pain - more so on the RHS than the LHS. There are a number of kidney stones in both - but not in or near the utery tract. But, the 'pain' has been with me for 7 months, and have been discharged by my urologist as he seems to think that I have a 'skelital/muscular' condition snown by the MRI scan. Both my doctor and surgeon have contradicted their view of 'skelital/muscular' pain - because tha spinal area around the kidneys are the best part of my spine!
Avatar f tn I had a urine test done and it came back normal. Have any of you taken clindamyacin? I read some of the side effects and they match my symptoms. Any thoughts? Always looking for some good info from the experts here.
Avatar n tn I was taking half a day, then one a day, then up to 6 a day. Then I started having awful side effects. My back pain got worse, my tongue was swelling some, and had stomach pain too. Then I had my lumbar injection and the pain got worse. I am scared this is an allergic reaction. I had my lumbar steroid injection, and the pain got worse, so my Dr prescribed Tylenol 4. I haven't taken the Percocet in over a day now, as it has scared me. I took the Tylenol 4 only twice yesterday.
Avatar n tn The treatment was not successful then. Now in addition to the side effects, now I have the symptoms of a much deteriorated liver, so of course life was better before the first treatment, but it is not only the side effects it is the condition of your liver that must be getting worse after so many years (unless you successfully cleared the virus then).
1528126 tn?1291771901 •burning or painful urination •pain in the back, lower abdomen, or groin •cloudy, dark, or bloody urine •foul-smelling urine •fever and chills •vomiting To confirm the diagnosis, the doctor may order an x ray called an intravenous pyelogram (IVP). In an IVP, dye is injected into a vein. The dye travels through the blood to the kidneys. As the dye is filtered into the urinary tract, it makes urine visible on the x ray and shows any blockage in the urinary tract.
Avatar m tn beta blocker aka toprol - same drug ! lots of side effects from this drug - more side effects happen if your on the Generic from ! You named all listed side effects for this drug - the stool issue is diffrent so could be a interaction with another drug your on ? it sounds as though your not tollerating this drug at all . and should be changed to something diffrent. with less side effects - you could be allergic to it ?
583644 tn?1221449146 My body tells me it is my kidneys. I have kidney stones, but my GP insists that the pain is not from my kidney stones because they are not obstructing the duct. I asked him if it was possible that my stones were moving around and he told me that kidney stones do not move around and they do not cause pain.
Avatar f tn to make a long story short lol i was diagnosed in 2006 with endometriosis first laparoscopy 2007 increasing pain ensued even after a 6 month Lupron stint, It supressed my symptoms while i was on it but side effects were not so nice, i still sweat every night from that stuff. 2009 had second laparoscopy, removal of multiple cysts and a ton of endometrial cells. Started Depo-Provera right after. stopped depo in Oct.
798555 tn?1292791151 Could anyone share any side effects they had and the herxing feel with these? The Dr said they can be tough on some people that was it nauseating , headaches, absolutely no alcohol ect. And what did you do to help cope with any side effects? It would help me to know what might possibly be around the corner for me so I can work thru it. I have to work regardless of how I feel (not an option), so your info will help me prepare getting thru the work day.
1244856 tn?1294760029 Honestly, I am very surprised that someone has not beat me to this. Since I am female I do not share the epiditimitis portion of you symptoms, however the kidney pain is a very common problem with MSKer's. We have all had to endure the ER docs and their assumption that we are junkies looking for a fix. I got in the habit of bringing my x-rays with me when I went in. Just to prove that I did in fact have stones in my kidneys.
