Kidney stones symptoms vomiting

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones symptoms vomiting


Avatar n tn Hi, 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. If stones grow to sufficient size before passage—on the order of at least 2-3 millimeters—they can cause obstruction of the ureter.
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 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 I must have been extremely small because i had no 'symptoms' etc of actually having a kidney stone, and he said he was not concerned and i would pass it. Symptoms then went away but recently i have been having urinary problems. Its doesnt happen every day, but i sometimes get a bloated feeling when i have to go, and sometimes i feel like i have to go, but i dont. Also the past two weeks i have been feeling nauseous. Not related to food etc, it just seems to come and go.
Avatar f tn I had an ultrasound, catscan and x-ray done. Also blood test and urine tests. The doctors say it may be kidney stones that they can't see, or it may be a stone that passed which caused swelling of the kidney and the ureter. Someone told me that the swelling may be caused by "parasites" ... Is this true? Please help.
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 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 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 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 R several times in the past month. His symptoms include severe lower back pain,vomiting at the time of pain and skyrocketing blood pressure at the time we believe a stone is passing. The past three visits to the E. R no stone has shown up on the cat scans and ultrasound. The doctors tell us therefore there should be no pain which is very frustrating. The last uroligist wanted MORE tests and gave him an antibiotic and some pain medicine.
Avatar f tn MRI results show at least two 2.0mm stones in each kidney. I passed my second stone (left kidney) a couple of weeks ago, and ever since then, my right kidney has been giving me on-and-off pain. Should I be concerned about this chronic, low grade pain? I always wonder if it's sand passing, but I'm not sure now. The last 2 or 3 urine tests I've had done have all shown a low level of protein in the urine.
Avatar n tn Vitamin A (not betacarotene) promotes healthy functioning of the urinary tract. People who are low in it sometimes form kidney stones more easily than others. You can get vitamin A in most good general multiple vitamin and mineral supplements. Magnesium helps the body dissolve calcium if you’re deficient in this it can cause calcium to accumulate into deposits, which increases your risk of forming kidney stones.
Avatar m tn Hi there. Most kidney stones less than 6mm in size can be treated conservatively. If pain, nausea and vomiting can be controlled, most of these stones will pass spontaneously. one must be well hydrated while trying to pass stone. Pain can be controlled with NSAIDs and narcotics on prescription if the pain is very distressing. the stone can be kept track of for weeks to months if there is no significant obstruction and if nausea and vomiting are tolerable and there is no active infection.
Avatar f tn Symptoms - Pain in the back that usually spreads under the rib cage, around the front, and into the groin. Causes - Kidney stones Suggestions- See a doctor promptly Symptoms - Extremely sharp abdominal pain, perhaps with other acute symptoms. Causes - Pelvic inflammatory disease,Heart attack,Perforated stomach ulcer,Shock from allergy,Diabetic emergency,Poisoning Symptoms - If you experience pain in the lower left abdomen, and often sudden, severe, and located, along with fever.
Avatar f tn One thing to consider it that in your case the large quick forming stones are a symptoms of an active infective stones. I believe and research supports that for many a biofilm infection actually set up with in the calcifications. Stones cause infection and infection cause stones. It is a vicous cycle. The key is getting the bacteria basically controlled. We can never kill it but by controlling it you can prevent new stone formation.
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 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 n tn I have been reading many message boards and feel am self educated about kidney stones by my own body. Each kidney stone is unique in severity of pain. The bigger ones don't always have bigger pain. The largest I have passed was5 ml. I just dont know what to do anymore. Im tired of passing them, tired of being in pain, tired of missing work and could be in danger of loosing my job. The painkillers are great , but takes a day or so to get back into functioning mode after taking them.
Avatar f tn I am a poor water drinker which contributes to the formation of most kidney stones. I suggest that you have your stones analysed if you have not done that. I was told by 2 urologists that there is nothing that I can take or do that will change my situation. Both urologist told me the same as what yours said, my chronic back pain was not related to kidney stones. They were correct and I was diagnosed with other issues that was the cause of most of my chronic low back pain.
Avatar f tn Now, I've been having a lot of cramps just above my pelvis and extreme back pain in my rib area down to the lower part of my back. I've had severe vomiting and nausea my entire pregnancy so that doesn't tell me much if that's a possible symptom. Did any other moms go through this and what were your symptoms or experience?
472139 tn?1211336163 Hi, 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. 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).
Avatar m tn Gastroenteritis, diverticulitis, bowel obstruction, polyps and Irritable bowel syndrome, here there should be accompanying bowel symptoms like diarrhea and vomiting. Discuss these options with your doctor. Besides, blood tests, urine analysis, an x ray and an ultra sonogram of the abdomen, sometimes an Intravenous pyelogram and a CT scan may be needed to diagnose. In the meantime take OTC Naproxen for pain relief and plenty of oral fluids. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I had one almost 2 years ago and had no idea - no symptoms or anything. I just started vomiting severely one night. After 3 days of it I was admitted into the hospital for a week because it had spread to my liver and pancreas as well and I was really sick. Found out I had carried it for 3 months because my surgeon was an idiot. I wouldn't worry too much, wait to see what your results say first. If you'd rather know sooner you can go buy OTC UTI test strips and take one.
Avatar n tn Go to your doctor A/S/A/P!!!!! That sounds very serious. It sounds like you need to seriously go to the ER.
Avatar f tn I know that when I have had a problem (I am prone to getting kidney stones), when I start to drink lots of water with freshly squeezed lemon juice everyday, it comes away like a sandy sediment in the urine. The doctor can prescribe stronger pain relief medication than what you can buy over the counter.
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.
