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 f tn Here they tested blood and urine and said no infection could be found but could be kidney stones and would send me for ultra sound to check. They put me on fluids and a drip of paracetamol over night. the next morning i woke up to very swollen hands and face but was told it wasn't bad enough to consider a concern and was forgotten about.
Avatar n tn Musculoskeletal pain typically gets worse with movement, and is relieved by heat or massage. Common causes of kidney pain include kidney stones, kidney infection or pyelonephritis, and any bleeding within the kidney from injury or otherwise, where the blood supply is suddenly cut off because of blockage of the artery to the kidney. It would be best to have it evaluated by your doctor. Ultrasound or xray may be done to better visualize the structures. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I know how you feel, although I haven't had spasms everyday, I have experienced them on occasion. It is worse than kidney stones. Undescribible pain!! It could be a number of things. Your kidney could be floating, you could have hydronephrosis, your renal artery could be obstructed and the blood supply is cut off intermittantly, and of coarse the old kidney stone is a possiblity. You really need some test done to see what is going on. I know how hard it is to find a good urologist.
Avatar n tn i have a thyroid level of zero, am taking 75 mg of synthroid, and 80000 vitamin d. my skin is turning brown on my neck and arms. what could this be? i have also had kidney trouble (stones, frequent infections for 15 years). what could this be?
Avatar m tn It was during this time that I was told I had kidney stones but there was nothing that could be done about it. A few days prior to this incident of back pain, I started getting an itchy sensation at the tip of my urethra. I have had this before and was tested for everything (beginning of April) and it came back negative. I thought perhaps it was this new nylon underwear I had purchased. i avoid wearing those at all costs but laundry was low.
1120324 tn?1259238678 Now that he has a new pcp, we found out that his gfr was I think about 70 and we had absolutely no idea about this and he has had it for over a year so the new doc told us.
Avatar f tn Hi, Kidney stones are usually asymptomatic until they pass into the ureter and squeeze through the ureteral walls.This is where the crampy pain begins.But if they may involve other structures as well and irritate these structures then pain may occur. I suggest you discuss all your concerns with your physicians. Drink plenty of water. A dark urine during urination tells you that you are not drinking enough water.
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 n tn php Other causes of blood in the urine include kidney infections, kidney stones, and bladder cancer. Has he had any blood tests done? If yes, was there any other sign, such as anemia or elevated ESR? If his renal function is failing you need to take him to a center where he can receive the attention of a nephrologist and an oncologist, if it turns out to be cancer ( and I'm sorry to say it seems that way). Do write in with any doubts you have.
Avatar n tn Did check for kidney stones. After episode took several stool softener, lax and an enema. Finally broke it loose. Been fatigued, dry eyes and flushed. The dry eyes have been happening for a while, along with painful hands, knees, even to rub skin on hands hurt. Weird pimple type rash on back, kind of painful, itchy. Didnt tell ER about anything but the pain in side and stomach because it was acute and so bad.
Avatar f tn I cant explain the pain, seems like stones or kidney spasms. I am on transdermal skin patchs of morphine which I find give a steadier pain relief. I havent heard of an artificail sphincter. have you ever had an spc as can also self cath that way?
Avatar n tn Instead, I guess the dr is referring me to a nephrologist, probably connecting the kidney stones with my other problem (she still hasn't called me back, so I have to guess). I feel awfully weird, though, going to a specialist when the dr never eally listened to my symptoms (she heard part of them at third hand from the nurse and still hasn't called me back, though she apparently sent in the referral someplace). Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do / what it could be?
Avatar f tn also i was diagnosed with a yeast infection but i took the medicine 3 days ago the irritation did not got away the bumps moved down towards my ureter and when i touch down there it has a burning type feel, also it burns when i pee sometimes is it kidney stones not a yeast infection? or im just impatient for the medicine to work. i thought it might also be a UTI.
Avatar n tn THIS PAST WEEK I HAD SEVERE ABDOMINAL PAIN AND WAS DIAGNOSED WITH 4 STONES IN MY LEFT KIDNEY. DURING THE IVP THEY (DOCTORS) FOUND THE RIGHT KIDNEY TO BE NOT FUNCTIONING. I AM VERY CONCERNED! I HAD TO HAVE A STENT INSTALLED TO REMOVE THE BLOCKAGE IN MY LEFT URETER. I HAVE BEEN SCHEDULED FOR LITHO TREATMENT IN 2 WEEKS. WILL I REGAIN THE USE OF MY RIGHT KIDNEY? WHAT COULD HAVE BROUGHT THIS ON? I WILL BE GOING IN FOR A CHEM-7 BLOOD WORK UP THIS WEEK.
Avatar n tn Have you been checked for kidney stones? They could cause blood in your urine (visible or not).I was misdiagnosed with UTI's before my stones were discovered. Ask for an IVP. They inject dye into you, and x-ray your kidneys as it passes through. Also a 24 hour urine test is a good idea. They can find all kinds of stuff that way. As far as you Dr. goes, be blunt with him about your concerns, and ideas.
Avatar f tn (My father suffers from kidney stones). I have been drinking lots of water and herbal teas. One doctor I spoke with over the phone suggested Bactrim antibiotic for 8 days. When I drink lots of water, it feels somewhat better. So I've been on bactrim for 2 days now, but I see no difference. According to you can this irritation be due to those crystals in urine, provoking this problem? Can antibiotics make it all worse if not bacteria was the cause of the irritation?
1806721 tn?1554337007 And that the pain I was having indicated more toward the left kidney but yet no stones etc. I'll be curious to see what you find out.
Avatar m tn I have decided to stop drinking and know it is going to b hard because I love the tast of bud light. I just wonder if any of my symptoms are anything that points to lover or kidney problems. I guess whr weight thing and the breath are my bigest concerns. I know it is time to quit.
Avatar n tn If you didn't have the spine imaged, you should talk to your doc as MS can show up there too. Hypothyroidism can certainly be a cause of your symptoms. Once treated adequately, your symptoms may improve. Another test that may be helpful is an EMG to see if this a problem of your peripheral nerves. Laboratory workup such as ANA, sed rate, blood count and electrolye profile can also help rule out other potential problems such as lupus and other rheumatological disorders.
Avatar f tn Have you had any fevers, painful urination, or blood in your urine? Perhaps you are suffering from a kidney infection or kidney stones. Is the pain sharp or dull? Does it come and go or is it constant? I would ask your doctor about doing an ultrasound, MRI or CT scan. Blood tests can be helpful in leading doctors down the right road to a diagnosis, but many times they are useless and other tests need to be done.
661200 tn?1225486613 Even worse, there isn't a darn thing to do for kidney failure other than treat the symptoms as best you can. Once kidney cells are destroyed, they cannot regenerate like other organs such as the liver can. When kidney failure reaches the last stages, you will notice a marked increase in nausea and vomiting and probably urinary accidents as well. The nausea is from the toxins remaining in the bloodstream that the kidneys can no longer filter out.
1832268 tn?1326819610 Breed, Age, Symptoms, Creatine, Bun, and Phorsphorus levels at time of first exam that revealed Kidney Disease, as well as End Stage Symptoms and Lab Values ( if known. ) How Quickly did the disease progress. Did the dog die naturally, or was the death assisted. I think this type of information would be very helpful to anyone and their dog, who has to deal with this disease.
Avatar f tn This is one of the most difficult things I've ever had to deal with. My beloved Gypsy is dying of kidney failure. Gypsy is a Jack Russell Terrier and she turned 18...yes 18...on Christmas Day. It's just so hard to know when it is "time." I prayed and prayed that she would give us one final parting gift and die on her own in her sleep...but she is SUCH a fighter and refused to surrender to this thing.
Avatar n tn Before mono I had kidney stones twice at age 18 and 20..none since. I have chronic constipation and go to the bathroom about 1 time a week. The more constipated I am the worse my bladder symptoms are as well. I have been to a neurologist who ruled out ms. I have been to physical therapy twice, which helped a little.....but got worse again when done. I have seen a internist who checked me for diabeties insipidus which I did not have.
Avatar n tn My doctor did an upper GI and CAT Scan and said I had gall stones and two small kidney stones on my left side. He and a urologist discounted the gall stones (no pain in the center or right side) and said that the two kidney stones were too small and not moving and thus probably not the basis of my problem. My doctor prescribed Lyrica and surprisingly (to me) this greatly helped my condition.
Avatar f tn 35+5 and my morning sickness has returned full force. I also have kidney stones at the moment, so the pain from that kinda masks everything else that might be going on. I'm definitely experiencing some pain/sensitivity around my nipples, and I occasionally feel sharp twinges from lightening.
Avatar m tn Factors that can cause urinary blood (hematuria) include urinary tract infections, enlarged prostate, cancerous and noncancerous tumors, kidney cysts, long-distance running, and kidney or bladder stones. Foods. Beets, blackberries and rhubarb can turn urine red or pink. Medications.
Avatar m tn I have a history of kidney stones and already have another calcium deposit that has developed in my left kidney (just 5 months after lithotripsy!). I also suffer from low testosterone and GERD and take Testim and Nexium, daily. Does anyone have any ideas? Is there such a thing as a hernia that can't be seen on ulrasound? Can a back injury cause these symptoms (the middle of my back has hurt during all this time, but only when in certain positions. Dead center, on spine.
