Kidney stones treatment pain medicine

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones treatment pain medicine


895634 tn?1283992810 Kidney stone often is hereditary so you should ask if any relatives also had kidney stones. Taking pain killers for the pain is not the proper treatment for kidney stones. Taking a pain killer to avoid the pain is not good medicine. It is masking the underlying condition which can be a serious one. A hepatologist is not an expert in kidney disease. They should refer you to a Urologist. A Urologist specializes in diseases and conditions of the kidneys and urinary track.
Avatar n tn They may stay in your kidneys or travel out of your body through the urinary tract. Kidney stones often cause no pain while they are in the kidneys, but they can cause sudden, severe pain as they travel from the kidneys to the bladder. Most small stones which are less than 5mm move out of the body without the need for any treatment other than drinking extra fluids and taking pain medicine.The average time a stone takes to pass ranges between 1 and 3 weeks.
Avatar m tn But my problem is heavy pain in the kidneyes and my pain specialist has problem to find the right medicine to take care of that? We are not sure if the pain is nerve pain or caused by the MSK. Has anybody experience in this area?
Avatar n tn I have had recurrent kidney stones since 2000 in 2001 I finally was told that I have Medullary Sponge Kidneys the problem is that in the last 2 months I have passed at least one stone a week and I am sick of being in continuous pain. The ER won't do anything but give me pain medicine and sometimes treats me as if I am just a seeker of drugs.
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 m tn I've searched the internet and found that kidney stones and salt deposits are the same thing. He said the pain in my abdomen was probably due to one of the deposits passing. He said that the pain that I 'think' is in my right kidney is more than likely my back. Can somebody please help me? I've tried so many doctors here, and not a single one of them can give me a straight answer that checks with Western medicine. The joys of living abroad...
Avatar n tn // I hope this helps. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Usually with hydration and proper medical therapy, many stones can be avoided. It is not unreasonable to postpone treatment of existing stones, because often the calcifications are still in the collecting ducts ( not the renal pelvis) where the stones may never cause a problem. It is usually the sequella of medullary sponge kidney that require management (stones and infection). Many patients have hypercalciuria and are treated with thiazide diurectics to limit stone formation.
Avatar f tn Lower abdominal pain can be due to several causes like appendicitis, urinary tract infection, irritable bowel syndrome, gastroenteritis, kidney stones etc.Are you also having symptoms like increased urinary frequency, painful urination? If yes then it can be suggestive of a urinary tract infection or kidney stones. Get in contact with a healthcare professional. A clinical examination and work up like urine examination, urine culture and ultrasound abdomen may be helpful.
Avatar n tn Two thirds of all stones involve calcium oxalate stones. Nutritional treatment could be as effective in considerably reducing, or even eliminating, calcium oxalate stone formation. 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.
Avatar f tn If you also suffer with reoccurring kidney pain whether you are passing stones or not...please respond as I am relieved to know I am not the only one. Beginning to think that I would never find someone that can identify with me. I would like to exchange information with another woman that has been experincing similiar symptoms. Thanks for your time in advance.
Avatar m tn you should do the renal ultrasound, sometimes kidney stones do give pain and other symptoms like nause. you can break stones with lithotripsy, or treat renal lithiasis with traditional Chinese medicine. You think it is wired pain on your right side, that could be the referred pain, or you have ever falled down recently or spend too much time sit on your chair for a long time? Did you ever find blood in your urine?
Avatar n tn (2)” Thus, the analysis of stone characteristics of renal stones by “UHCT(Unenhanced Helical Computed CT) is helpful in selecting appropriate patients undergoing ESWL for favorable outcomes and reduces the overall costs of the treatment of renal stones.(3)” 1.

Avatar m tn The pain of kidney stones are excruciating for some and others feel nothing, depending on the size of the stone. The pain comes from the stone moving down from the kidney to the bladder via the ureter. Once it is in the bladder, usually you shouldn't experience any pain . Drink lots of water!!! This is the only way to flush them out. You will never know if you have passed it out in your urine unless you strain it.
Avatar n tn None of them can explain to why I keep getting kidney stones. Some stones have caused major pain and others have sat in my kidneys for years with no problems.The drs have done every and any test possible from blood work to CT's to MRI's and they still can not figure out why I keep getting the stones. The most recent test they did was a CT w/contrast to see if I had that sponge kidney disease. The test came back inconclusive. I know that the stones are made up of calcuim.
Avatar m tn I consulted my transplant surgeon who said that there is a small percentage of patients who experience pain after kidney removal, so he sent me to the pain clinic. Most days it still feels like my kidney is still there and hurts exactly like it did when I had kidney infections or kidney stones. When I had my surgery they cut me from back ribcage to the front below my bladder so there is a lot of nerves that were severed during the surgery.
Avatar m tn After I got the diagnosis MSK my kidneys were cleared for stones and calcifications through 4 operations. But the heavy pain in the kidneys went on. To start with this was treated by morphineproducts like OxyContin, but after some time this was at no help. Then I tried other types of medication among these antibiotics. Some of these were at help but only for a short period, 1-4 weeks. Then I changed to Trimopan (Trimethoprim), 10 mg daily.
Avatar m tn This causes swelling of the kidney or kidneys, causing pain. The pain is usually severe. Kidney stones are common. A person who has had kidney stones often gets them again in the future. Kidney stones often occur in premature infants. Some types of stones tend to run in families. Certain kinds of stones can occur with bowel disease, ileal bypass for obesity, or renal tubule defects. There are different types of kidney stones. The exact cause depends on the type of stone.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am being treated with medicine DYNAPRESS for kidney stone. I have taken 3 dozes of the medicine and I notice that during sex there is no semen coming out. Earlier there were no such problems. Please advise if I should continue with the medicine. Many thanks.
Avatar f tn If he has been in rural areas of Zimbabwe, perhaps he was exposed to parasitic disease and perhaps a consultation with a tropical medicine physician would be in order. With regard to kidney stones, the diagnosis is quite easy to make based on a CT scan.
897773 tn?1256735820 Further tests were done and it was discovered that my right kidney was very small, scarred and only working 11%, it also contained numerous small stones. So it was suggested that this may be the cause of my pain, my kidney was removed 6 weeks ago laparascopicaly and surprise surprise the pain is still there. I'm not sure where to go from here...I'm beginning to think my doctors think I'm faking it!!!
Avatar n tn Kidney stones Causes Gout is caused by having higher-than-normal levels of uric acid in your body. Your body may make too much uric acid, or have a hard time getting rid of uric acid. If too much uric acid builds up in the fluid around the joints (synovial fluid), uric acid crystals form. These crystals cause the joint to swell up and become inflamed. Not everyone with high uric acid levels in the blood has gout. The exact cause is unknown. Gout may run in families.
Avatar n tn Although I was told I had no stones I gave it a shot. I could not believe all the stones that came out. Hundreds and I am not exagerating. It is a cleanse that requires you be in fairly good health because you feel a little drained from it. It is called Dr. Hulda Clarkes Liver and Gallbladder cleanse. You will be amazed at how well it works. Just do a search on it and you will be sure to find it.
Avatar f tn Lately, I have been experiencing, back pain, quite severe sometimes. I have had UTI's and kidney stones (in the past) and the pain I felt with those two conditions are similiar with the pain I am feeling now. Does anyone else with cysts feel like their kidney's hurt?
Avatar f tn Even though I have stones in both kidneys I rarely have pain in the left. However my right kidney seems to hurt whether or not I have any stones. The pain just seems to be constant and just never goes away, it just gets worse when I'm acutally passing a stone. I guess that seems to be the biggest issue for me right now, just controlling the pain in my right kidney. The stones are pretty small, usually around 2 to 3mm with the last one being around 4.
Avatar f tn Yes, it's very painful to have a stone stuck in the ureter, and will cause both ureteral pain AND kidney pain (from the fluid buildup). Hydronephrosis is indeed painful, but luckily, fairly easy to take care of with the placement of a 'stent'. Are they going to do a cystoscopy (scope, go and remove), or will they perform ESWL (shockwave lithotripsy)? I wish him the best of luck.
Avatar n tn I am a 22 year old female.I am having reoccurent UTI'S and now I have a Kidney infection. In fact I have had 10 UTI's in the past 12 months. Each time I am treated and with-in a week or two, I have another one. I 've had 8 cases of BV, as well.My body has built immunities to Bactrim. It no longer works. I am now on Cipro. I follow all the guidelines the dr. tells me. I have been tested for all STD's including Clamydia-all were Negative.
661200 tn?1225486613 -) I know I just bombarded you with a whole lot of information, and I hope you'll speak to your vet about how to balance treatment for the CHF and kidney failure as best you can. Comfort measures are the best that can be offered now, and you'll need to know exactly what those are. God bless you. The next weeks and/or months aren't going to be easy, so enjoy the time you have left.
1832268 tn?1326819610 We brought him home and did twice daily under skin fluids plus standard recommended meds and kidney diet. We then took him to a kidney specialist who was trying to determine at what stage of Kidney disease he was at. Got his levels down a little more a week little later, things were looking promising and his energy levels were increasing dramatically. Less than a week later, he completely stopped eating. Took him to specialist after 2 days of not eating.
