Avatar m tn I'm a 48 year old male, moderately active, overweight (not obese), with hypertension. I do have a history of kidney stones on the right side, but this does not feel like kidney stone pain and my last KUB x-rays in April were clear of stones.

Avatar n tn -kidney stones -IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) -liver problems -kidney infection I would stick to your gut. You know what the pain feels like. When my pain started, they tried having me do physical therapy for back pain even though I told them it wasn't that type of pain. Now I've had 10+ trips to urgent care and my primary care physician and they are just now telling me to see a urologist. It sounds pretty stupid, but you could try putting your symptoms in to the symptom-checker on WebMD...
Avatar n tn Hello, I'm a 19-year-old female who has had some urinary issues since literally the beginning of 2008. I was diagnosed with three UTIs, each within 8-10 weeks of each other. My symptoms were usually severe pain in my left flank and difficulty starting my urine stream. I treated these UTIs with prescriptions of Bactrim. In the past eight months, I have significantly reduced caffeine in my diet, stopped taking vitamins, have been extra careful when wiping, etc. I am not sexually active.
Avatar m tn Vitamin D may increase calcium levels and increase the risk of “hardening of the arteries” in people with serious kidney disease. This must be balanced with the need to prevent renal osteodystrophy, a bone disease that occurs when the kidneys fail to maintain the proper levels of calcium and phosphorus in the blood. Calcium levels should be monitored carefully in people with kidney disease. High levels of calcium in the blood: Taking vitamin D could make this condition worse.
Avatar n tn I have so many symptoms that seem unrelated, yet I can't seem to get answers for any of them. I have severe pain in several joints: knees, hips, shoulders, and wrist/fingers. I have chronic fatigue. No desire to do much of anything most of the time. Frequent urination, I seem to spend more time in the restroom then out of it. I have trouble sleeping at night. I've tried ambien, but it doesn't seem to help, I'm still very tired the next day and wake up with a headache when I take it.
Avatar f tn // Hypothyroid symptoms include allergies, anaemia, anxiety, hypoglycemia, GERD (due to parietal cells pumping out less stomach acid) to name a few. A hiatus hernia can cause GERD as well. From Dr. John C. Lowe's website...
Avatar n tn I guess there is no moderator. Over on Webmd message boards they have moderators and keep things quite professional, sometimes even deleting posts that are rude or bizarre. Chicken soup, why not post there too? Please don't leave here, we need your input.
923105 tn?1341831249 First, I wanna say that I see nothing wrong with running Google searches for information which gives us knowledge. Just remember, the most reputable sites are on the first page, and I highly recommend Mayoclinic, Webmd, and Nothing shocks me anymore when it comes to doctors and what they say. No disrespect to your doctor, but in my opinion, to say it's ALL due to MS is just wrong! Not that this is gonna make you feel any better, or maybe it will, (hoping!
Avatar f tn High blood pressure can lead to kidney disease and kidney failure according to webmd.... in the blood testing, did they check your kidney function and determine your GFR (glomerular filtration rate)?
Avatar f tn She was given anti inflammatory injection(Nonsteriodal) at first. We all thought it was kidney stones we were wrong. So the doc ordered moraphen needless to say after 1cc was given she cried out it was causing her heart to hurt. Her blood pressure went up to 144/99 with a pulse of 125. Normally it is 90/50 to 115/74 with a pulse of 50 to 88. After the heart issue ended she said go ahead with the rest. They gave her 4cc and she was ready to take on the world with pain but able to speak.
1448936 tn?1363209946 Ill called my 24 hour nurse line and was advised to take tylenol, drink water and apply a heating pad and if my symptoms dont start improving to go back to the er. I dont know what to do. If i should wait a few hours or go now. My bf is asleep and id hate to wake him if the advice i was given ends up helping. If anyone is awake and sees this id be grateful for input.
Avatar m tn When I went to my doctor two weeks ago, it was because I woke up with severe back pain. I was unsure if it was my kidney. My lower back ached and I couldn't bend over, get out of chairs, etc. Even when I was in a position that wasn't hurting my stiff spine, it still felt like I had a tickling pain in my left lower back. This is when she tested my vitamin D and it came back low. The only other abnormality in my blood was my high eosinophils. My urine was fine, no blood or bacteria.
Avatar m tn If you are a heterosexual who has had unprotected sex outside of a mutually monogamous relationship and do not have symptoms, all you need is an annual health screen that includes testing for HIV and common STDs (chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis)- you are far more likely to contract these during unprotected sex than HIV. HIV/STD testing is also advised if you are about to start a long-term sexual relationship with someone, so that you both know your status going into the relationship.
Avatar n tn Hulda Clark's liver/gallbladder flush for longer relief. Unfortunately, once you suffer from stones, you will probably always suffer from stones. Magnesium defiency can also cause stones. A liquid magnesium supplement is better than pills.
Avatar m tn Ejection fraction of 62% from HIDA, no visible stones/sludge from US, CT, blood tests, etc. Symptoms are classic gb issues. Seems like gb is working fine, very puzzling, which must be why my PCP really prefers to remove gb. Well, still have colonoscopy next week, and then can insist on mrcp afterwards if still no resolution.
Avatar f tn Ketosis can cause organ failures and result in gout, kidney stones or kidney failure. It's an unhealthy metabolic state and can be dangerous for those with heart or other issues. You are basically telling me that it's my fault that I'm not losing weight because I don't eliminate gluten and dairy from my diet; you sound like my previous doctor who blamed everything on me.
Avatar n tn It's an urban myth...gallstones, unlike kidney stones can not be dissolved - and even if they could, you would NOT want the remnants of them "passing through" as this "flush" suggests would happen....the fragments or small stones would become trapped, possibly in the bile duct. This old wives' tale is at best useless and at worst dangerous...please don't even try it....
Avatar n tn Did you find out what was causing your pains? I've been getting them too. Holy crud, they stop me in my tracks, make me feel sick to my stomach and I just need to absolutely relax to make it go away~ NO fuN!
Avatar n tn I hesitate mentioning other sites, but there are some people on the WebMd IBS board (it's used for more than IBS) who have had problems following GB surgery with many of the same symptoms you're describing and have had to search for answers, too. You might want to take a look through the posts or possibly post yourself and see if someone might be able to at least reassure you that you're not alone.
Avatar n tn I know I am not crazy, but after a while, with no name to put with this, it is making me crazy. I have seen others post on here with same symptoms, but the post was in archives of last year. I looked for answers ( Piper123 had same symptoms 8-6-06 ) didn't see any. Wish I could get in touch with anyone that has gone through this and is feeling better ( need to know there is light at the end of the tunnel) Please respond anyone.
Avatar f tn The ER did a CT scan to rule out kidney stones, appendix, etc. Everything was normal. Without me knowing, they decided to test and treat me for STD's (of course they came back negative). Now, no one will take me serious because they see that treatment in my history and they assume I have an STD and that is what is causing my pain. I went to my GYN last week and he said he felt like the blood was being trapped and causing my pain. In other words, post-ablation syndrome.
Avatar n tn I was heading overseas for 3 weeks and the doctor have me some tablets to take to clear up my lips as she said they looked like they had a staff infection. Whilst I was OS all my symptoms cleared up completely and within 2 days of returing home everything started up again! A week after I had been back,I woke up in the monring and my eyes were completely closed over and extremly swollen. I visited a doctor and they said I might have hives or some type of allergy.
Avatar n tn I have your symptoms exactly, and i have a five month old. Any luck on finding info? I am stumped. Must be hormonal????
Avatar n tn He said it will clear up on its own in a few weeks, and as long as it isn't painful and no other symptoms develop, just try not to worry about it, and if symptoms persist, he will order a full workup on me (I have a followup appointment in a couple weeks). In my previous post, I referenced some other discussion boards where other men with the same symptom mostly report that it does indeed go away in 4 - 6 weeks.
Avatar f tn Do you take any medications shirl000? I have Behcet's and take quite a few meds. I have had the internal shakes on and off for years, sometimes daily for a month at a time. I also get visible shake but only slight and only once where other people could see it going on. I don't know if my shakes are due to meds or just part of the disease. So many effects of the disease and so little knowledge about it.
Avatar n tn Take a deep breath and relax. Try to stay away from the internet sites. If symptoms are real, you don't need WebMD to identify them for you. You'll know it. Feeling like you're facing imminent death will not help you, whether you're sick or not. Wish you all the best.
Avatar n tn Yes, many of us can relate to your symptoms. You did the right thing by first getting to an MD to check out any physical problems. You never said what the outcome from cardiologist was. Most likely normal. If it is anxiety, the more you focus on it, the worse it gets. You need to get a distraction and try not to think about it. Much easier said than done, especially when symptoms are so severe. Have you thought about therapy?
Avatar m tn proper nutrition and exercise. No pill can do what you can to do for yourself. Lisonopril - Do you have kidney issues? I would ask your doctor why "he seems to think this is a good medication to take." For what? Get a full explanation and don't leave his office until you feel satisfied with his answer. If you have doubts on any drug, or need more information about them go see and discuss them with your local pharmacist.
