Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones symptoms urination


Avatar f tn Hello, These symptoms of feeling to urinate associated with kidney stones can be due to strangury. It is painful, frequent urination of small volumes that are expelled slowly only by straining and despite a severe sense of urgency. Get the size of kidney stones evaluated. Drink plenty of water and talk to your nephrologist regarding the treatment of kidney stones which include pain killers, trying avoiding taking calcium rich foods. If the symptoms persist then surgical intervention is needed.

Avatar f tn Went to Urologist for daughter's history with Kidney stones. Original xray in February showed 2 stones. We did confirm she passed 1 of those stones in February. Not sure if other ever passed. Advised by doctors that it must of passed by now..... Urologist said that probably with this last episode, just over a week ago, must of passed other stone. Although we've been straining it, and haven't seen it. Said to wait and watch her for now.
Avatar f tn Hi, Kidney stones often do not cause any symptoms. Usually, there is extreme pain, which begins suddenly when a stone moves in the urinary tract and blocks the flow of urine.If the stone is too large to pass easily, pain continues as the muscles in the wall of the narrow ureter try to squeeze the stone into the bladder. As the stone moves and the body tries to push it out, blood may appear in the urine, making the urine reddish.

Avatar f tn She was very sick just over a week before she was diagnosed, and they don't know if she was sick from the kidney stones,or if she had the stomach flu,and getting dehydrated caused the kidney stones. However she never really got too "dehydrated" when she was so sick. She did vomit alot, but was still having plenty of urine. So who knows. Any experience on how long these things take to pass? Thanks again.

Avatar n tn Has anyone who has suffered from kidney stones/kidney infections had any trouble with their periods? I had a long, painful period for three weeks and then the following month my period only lasted for two days but I still had a lot of pain - I was told that I could possibly have kidney stones as I had a urine infection and the pain could be linked to this.
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 m tn (this is my 3rd doc but now i had it checked in a well known hospital, the last 2 check up was from a clinic and it was more then 5 months ago) i told my doc that my main symptoms were frequent urination and slight burning feeling and i told him that i took all the antibiotics for chlamydia and gono. so to his assumption he said that it doesn't look like an std and said it could be a kidney stone.
Avatar n tn You will need to take care to restrict certain foods in your diet, especially vitamin C, as it has been reported to aggravate signs and symptoms of both kidney stones and interstitial cystitis.
Avatar n tn Weturner, there IS a connection between "bipolar" and kidney stones. His 'bipolar' symptoms and kidney stones are very possibly caused by the same thing. It is called Hyperparathyroidism. Most people have never heard of PARAthyroid glands. But we all have four of them. Please have your husband's parathyroid checked out by the best expert you can find. I was put on medications for years for mental things such as bipolar, I was also getting kidney stones a lot.
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 Hi, This could be an infection in the kidneys or kidney stones too. UTI or urinary tract infection is due to undue growth of microbes in the urinary pathway. This may be caused by spread of infection from a nidus of infection in the tract, from blood or from some other adjacent infectious tissue. Bladder infection may result in symptoms of urination, frequency urgency etc with fever and lower abdominal pain.
Avatar f tn Hello there, Sore tummy, headaches and dizziness can be due to many causes like anxiety, gastritis,food intolerance, stress etc.Kidney stones will cause symptoms like burning urination,haematuria,pain in flanks and there may also be fever at times. It is suggested to take light food .Avoid fried spicy foods. Drink plenty of water and avoid stress. If the symptoms are severe and persistent a clinical examination may be necessary. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. Keep me posted.
Avatar f tn I went to a different dr this time and he gave me a urine test and they found the same thing, just a trace of blood, so he didn't want to put me on antibiotics again because he didn't know for sure what was wrong with me so he made me an appointment with a urologist and he also gave me a couple weeks of flomax for my symptoms just in case I had kidney stones.
Avatar n tn My 15 year old daughter had a CT scan to check for kidney stones. The doctor told me the results showed stones in both kidneys...more in the right than in the left. Also showed a 4cm by 4cm cyst on the right ovary. She put her on birth control pills for a couple of cycles to see if the cyst goes away. So we are starting month 1 with the birth control pills, and waiting for an ultrasound in a month or two. As for the kidney stones...
Avatar f tn Have you been properly assessed along this line? Was a scan done to establish the presence of these stones? Kidney stones may be asymptomatic depending on their size and the presence of underlying disease conditions like structural anomalies involving the urinary tract. They may present as a dull vague pain over the flank. They may present as a benign back pain. In some patients, the back may be slightly tender when the physician gently hits the area with closed fists.
Avatar n tn The most common causes in people younger than 40 years of age are kidney stones or urinary tract infections. While in older people, cancers of the kidney, bladder, and prostate become a more common concern. A urinalysis may help to reach a diagnosis. Are there other signs or symptoms present? Urinary tract infection may present with difficulty or pain in urinating, urinary frequency and urgency. It would be best to see your doctor for proper evaluation and to alleviate your worries.
Avatar n tn Hi, The presence of calcium oxalate in urine may point towards further evaluation to exclude urinary tract stones. Calcium containing stones are one of the more common renal stones. This may require a 24 hour urine specimen to determine calcium, phosphorus and uric acid levels,urine culture and serum calcium, phosphorus and uric acid levels. A kidney, ureter and bladder CT scan may also be requested. A review of your diet may also shed some light on these findings.
Avatar m tn o Kidney stones induced by trauma: 1999 : severe bleeding, very small stones passed.
Avatar n tn Sounds like you might have a problem with kidney stones. It is common to miss stones that are so small they are like sand. These often pass through the urine without pain and are missed in blood tests and most radiology tests. I suggest two things. First you can catch your urine and filter it though special filters to see if you collect any sand. This sand can be tested to see if it is sand from stones.
Avatar f tn Hello, From the symptoms the possibilities of UTI and kidney stones have been ruled out by urine tests and ultrasound. It is important to rule out any bladder infection as well. Also urethral syndrome or 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 n tn Well Then I started having very heavy bleeding on my menstrual cycle and that month of september I had three periods that lasted about nine days. My dad took me to a gyn. and they said that the only thing they saw was a little bit of kidney stones and that other than that I was normal and it was prolly my eating habits taking my body out of wack. Well it's been way over a year and Im healthier than i was then bc. I have gained some weight back and I am now 155lbs.
Avatar f tn Urinary tract (which consists of the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and the urethra) infections are very common in young women. Symptoms of UTI are frequent urination, burning sensation during urination, passing of blood in urine and even fever. The most common causes of repeated UTIs are kidney stones and diabetes mellitus. Women who are sexually active, who use diaphragms for birth control, and/or are past menopause are at an increased risk for urinary tract infections.
Avatar n tn Pass urine as soon as you feel the urge and do not try to hold urine for longer as this can cause infections and kidney stones. Cranberry and other citrus juices and citrus fruits help in washing away the infective organism from the urinary tract. Do keep us posted on your doubts and progress.
Avatar n tn After a short while i started having the urge to go to the bathroom a lot, most of the time only a little urine would come out. I had a check for kidney stones, there werent any. Ive seen a bunch of doctors, before my urine test used to have a little blood. Recently that has not been the case. Most of the time i feel like there's urine in the shaft of my penis and i have to go to the bathroom several times, sometimes a lot of urine comes out, im trying to drink less liquids.
Avatar m tn Hello, This can be due to urinary tract infection. Symptoms of UTI are frequent urination, burning sensation during urination, passing of blood in urine and even fever. The most common causes of repeated UTIs are kidney stones and diabetes mellitus. Making a diagnosis of a urinary tract infection includes performing a urinalysis test, which checks for the presence of pus, white blood cells, and bacteria in the urine, which point to a urinary tract infection.
Avatar m tn does your husband have any familiar history of relatives who have the same symptoms? 4. when he spotted blood, was it associated with passing of shreds as well or was it fresh blood along. 5. has he ever had urine incontinence or can he postpone urination when he feels the urge to go for it? 6. lastly, does he strain when he urinate and is there any other part of the body that is aching like a back or waist?
