Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones treatment wiki


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 i am a 31 year old male healthy dont smoke dont drink exercise daily love to do thing i have had near 30 kidney stones from the time i have been 18 close to 20 surgeries for stones on both sides but over the last year chronic pain on left side feels almost as if someone has fingers under rib cage and pulling constantly trmendous pain constantly to the point of tears pain worsens when riding in a car or laying down anyone have any ideas???
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar n tn A lithotriptor is a medical device used in the non-invasive treatment of kidney stones (urinary calculosis) and biliary calculi (stones in the gallbladder or in the liver). The scientific name of this procedure is Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL). The lithotriptor attempts to break up the stone with minimal collateral damage by using an externally-applied, focused, high-intensity acoustic pulse.
Avatar m tn org/wiki/Hypoparathyroidism 'calcium replacement or vitamin D can ameliorate the symptoms but can increase the risk of kidney stones and chronic kidney disease' Is that really desired goal of treatment? Is there any evidence bringing the pth to the minimum can actually "cure" people or reduce their hbvdna/hbsag without damaging their kidneys? Are there any evidence/studies/previous posts of users that imply this actually works?
Avatar n tn With a serious accident or due to osteoporosis or other causes of weakened vertebral bones, vertebral fractures in the lumbar spine may also occur. If it is due to kidney pain it will be associated with urinary disturbances.Kidney stones cause radiating pain(loin to groin) and can be associated with vomiting. IT does require immediate attention.So please do visit a doctor.
Avatar f tn In 2001 I did have kidney stones which no one could find for 2 years. Turned out I had two that I partially passed to my bladder and never went through. They found it only because I had one in my kidney...
Avatar n tn Sometimes kidney stones will sit on the floor of the bladder and give this sensation, Ive passed a few kidney stones, and occasionally they give this same symptom, extremely annoying, all i can say is to drink plenty of fluids, and if this is the problem, the stone will eventually pass.
541196 tn?1293556536 He lately has had pain in his penis and sensations that make him uncomfortable. He has had kidney stones in the past, so I suppose the remaining ones that haven't passed could be causing this??? He also occassionally has problems with his erection going soft, even though he is very aroused. And his ejaculations are rather delayed after his orgasm. Are these related to the varicocele? Is there anything I can suggest for him to do?
509877 tn?1315365294 She had kidney stones...lots of them. Back then, they opened you up surgically to remove kidney stones. She had multiple operations to remove the stones. Eventually, they removed all of her parathyroid glands except one...they regulate the calcium in your body. They put the last parathyroid gland in her forearm, so they could get to it easier surgically in case her calcium rose again. In time it disappeared, but she keep having high calcium levels and kidney stones.
Avatar f tn The stones are generally painless, and you probably won't know you have them unless they cause a blockage or are being passed. Then, there's usually no mistaking the symptoms — kidney stones, especially, can cause excruciating pain. Bladder or kidney stones can also cause both gross and microscopic bleeding. Enlarged prostate. The prostate gland — located just below the bladder and surrounding the top part of the urethra — often begins growing as men approach middle age.
Avatar n tn 2) I would also like to mention that my girlfriend and I did wait until her yeast infection symptoms subsided to resume sexual activity. 3) I also had several kidney stones that I passed in July of 2008. Do you think I could possibly have more kidney stones? 4) I do not know if these problems could be anxiety related or not. I am simply searching for answers. I thank you again for your timely reply.
Avatar n tn com/lower-right-abdominal-pain.html You need to consult a doctor to rule out appendicitis, kidney stones, diverticulitis, crohn's disease, pelvic inflammatory disease etc. The further plan of management would involve - '-Blood tests including full blood count, electrolytes, urea, creatinine, liver function tests, pregnancy test and lipase.
231903 tn?1281486184 i have been taking tramadol to relieve some of the pain ive never had any x-rays on my chest, but i have had them on my abdomenom when they were looking for kidney stones.. but they havent said anything about what could be wrong. i recently had an MRI that came back normal too. i did have another kidney infection a few weeks ago. but these symptoms have been for years, still not stopping.
Avatar n tn // Treatment of FSGS can be through nutritional management or nonimmunosuppressive therapy to help some patients by decreasing proteinuria and improving kidney function. Here are some links about FSGS: I hope this helps. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Just an FYI-I was tested a year ago and there was a lot of microscopic blood at that time also. At the ER they did a CT scan and ruled out Kidney stones. My questions are: 1. Are Hematuria and ovulation related?? If so how? 2. If it is IC, how come I don't have any symptoms in one part of the month? 3 I recently got an ultrasound of my female parts done. ONe of them was on top of my abdomen and for the other I had to stick a camera into my vagina.
Avatar n tn I don't know anything about Vit C by IV, but isn't there kidney concerns with large doses of Vit C? Maybe by IV it's not as big a deal? I was thinking it caused kidney stones or some other kidney issue.
Avatar m tn Hi Thanks for writing to the forum! This looks more like a referred pain of kidney stones that is felt in the testis. There could be a stone anywhere in the urinary system on the left side. An ultrasound of the lower abdomen will be able to rule out kidney stones.Pain in testicle could also be due to infection, like prostatitis, epididymitis or orchitis. Get a culture sensitivity test for both semen and urine done.
717272 tn?1277594380 Turns out that if I'd kept taking the GYN's calcium, I'd be heading for kidney stones, joint pain, hardened veins and stroke, not to mention being a hunchback. The endocrinologist found that my parathyroid glands are malfunctioning and telling my bones to dissolve, to put more calcium in my blood. The endo had my chart of my high TX calcium levels and made an easy diagnosis.

Avatar f tn His previous pain in the lower left side could also be related if there's something wrong with the colon which is causing bad absorption! if the pain was from the kidney, stones for example I can't see how it could be related. Both are in fact listed on Wiki as possible causes of weight loss -Gastrointestinal disorders - Infection. Some infectious diseases can cause weight loss.
Avatar n tn 00 bill and told it was kidney stones.... NOT! I went to a specialist NO Help, same thing Oh you have kidney stones . NOT! so 16,000.
Avatar f tn Since I had him I have been diagnosed with Kidney stones from the pregnancy, Gastritis form may look into that. I suffer from very bad can do crazy things to your body. Sometimes i find that I wonder what is causing me to feel bad when a symptoms strikes and before you know it my legs and arms go numb and my stomach turn and before you know it I cant leave the bathroom. This sometimes last days! Anxiety can hit at any time..
Avatar n tn He said if that comes back all clean that I should have imaging done to determine the possibility of a stone, but honestly I know there is no stone. I have had kidney stones in the past, and there is no pain like that, and no blood in my urine- I honestly think he just wanted me to come in and pay for another pointless visit. This is ruining my life.
Avatar f tn This can happen if you have a urinary tract infection or have any problem with any part of the urinary tract and if you have kidney stones. With kidney problems, the urine can smell very strong just like liver and kidneys. Initially, your GP would be your first port of call to examine your urine and send it to the laboratory for analysis. If you do have any particular symptoms that could be related to the urinary tract the doctor would be able to send you for an ultrasound scan.
Avatar n tn I use my treatment for 20 months now and I am doing GREAT taking into consideration that my cancer is an aggresive one. Vit C does not cause any kidney stones...quack watch is saying this to tarnish the reputation of a reputable doctors who are using VitC. If you need more info please write me a PM. Sunes.
244899 tn?1313628239 Health benefits of drinking water include maintenance of pH balance, body temperature, metabolism, breathing, prevention of constipation, heartburn, migraine, gastritis and ulcers, kidney stones, cardiovascular disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, backache and osteoporosis. It is required in excess amount by pregnant women and nursing mother. It also plays important roles in kidney functions, skin tone etc.
Avatar f tn An ultrasound confirmed that I have both sludge and stones, and after five months of pain and not knowing what's going on, I was thrilled to hear that the problem is something so easy to fix. I know gallbladder pain is traditionally associated with the right side of the body, but up until a week and a half ago, I had no pain whatsoever on that side.
Avatar m tn Dermatologic symptoms include dermatitis, alopecia, and achromotrichia (absence or loss of pigment in the hair. Perosis (a shortening and thickening of bones) is seen in the skeleton. FLKS (fatty liver and kidney syndrome) and hepatic steatosis also can occur.” H-pylori: “It causes a chronic low-level inflammation of the stomach lining and is strongly linked to the development of duodenal and gastric ulcers and stomach cancer.” However this is just the reading of the report.
Avatar n tn Although I joined MedHelp in 2008 I have not been active in this community until recently. As I read these SX some leap out to me as possible kidney stones, others seem to be spine related - or some may be a kidney dysfunction/disease. Another thought that comes to my mind is SIJ (Sacroiliac Joint) or SIJD (Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction).
