Avatar f tn How many here have dealt with kidney stones during pregnancy? I am 18 wks 5 days and have a stone that needs to pass. Hurts excessively. I had a stone with my last pregnancy at 34 wks. That time required surgery to remove. If this is not gone by Monday I may be headed that way again.
Avatar f tn With my last pregnancy i had such bad kidney stones that they were blocking my ureter (the tube going from your kidney to your bladder) which caused all the urine on my left side to be stuck in my kidney i got really bad hydronephrosis (excessive swelling of the kidney) and had to have a stent placed 4 times while pregnant to let the urine flow correctly again!
Avatar n tn has anyone else experienced a kidney infection/ stones during pregnancy ... what did u do for the pain .... all my doc told me was heat but my god is this miserable .. last time I passed a stone they dopped me up on pain meds which is obviously not an option this time ... please help me !! ...
Avatar n tn Since having kidney stones currently and knowing what they feel like not being pregnant, I can safely say that I have had stones at least 3 other times between the ages of 17 and 27 (pain at that time was diagnosed as most likely a cyst -- when pain was severe - shortly thereafter went away - they said cyst burst - i am confident that the pain was kidney stones). With that being said, I'm tired of getting the kidney stones (as well as the tiredness, soreness and moodiness).
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.

90502 tn?1196367605 I ended up taking (among others) silymarin (Milk Thistle), N Acetyl Cysteine, and vitmain C for years. That is until chronic kidney stones put an end to any further supplementation via vitamin C.
Avatar m tn Hi there, Kidney problems and kidney stones can lead to erectile dysfunction. Only a complete medical evaluation can confirm whether this erectile dysfunction is due to kidney stones or not. Drink plenty of water and take adequate treatment for your kidney stones. This is merely an advice and not a substitute for clinical examination. Hope it helps. Best luck and regards!
Avatar f tn definitely could be stones. i had 1 and mu hubby had them 2x.
Avatar n tn Hi, Causes other than a UTI than can cause blood in urine include, kidney stones, underlying kidney disease, STDs that are not detected on routine urinalysis (chlamydia and mycoplasma infections), increased blood pressure, exercise-induced bleeding, general bleeding disorders, etc. Kidney stones up to 5 mm in size can pass through the urinary tract, though with significant discomfort.
Avatar m tn My question is is that i had passed about 7 or 8 kidney stones in the past 10 years and i'm wondering if taking these vitamins will somehow hurt my kidneys or possibly cause me to get more kidney stones? In the past the stones were analyzed and were calcium deposits. Heres what i'm taking: B-Complex Magnesium(500mg twice a day) zinc (50mg) 2 multi mineral vitamins Thanks everyone, I love this site.
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.
452063 tn?1324078516 I have seen at least a dozen posts with kidney stones. There has to be some correlation between opiate use and kidney stones. My surgeon showed me mine on the CT scan and it's a white circle as big as a golfball. He feels it might be from chemicals but said that it's probably from my chemo. I keep thinking that he is gonna pull out a big white opiate that either says Endo or Watson on it lol. Just wondering if anyone else was told theirs was from chemicals?
2046875 tn?1340234719 I agree with sehale 100%! I van testify first hand of taking to many vitamins and developed kidney stones this was before I was pregnant....and the problem never goes away! I have yo take a special prenatal vitamin that doesn't have calcium in it! I personally would ask your doctor if you need an addition iron pill...if you do...just take the additional iron pill with the regular prenatal vitamin....that way you wouldnt over load your body! Best of luck dear!
Avatar n tn This question doesn't fit well in any of the listed forums, but I think this is my best shot. I am a 34-year-old female with a 15 year history of calcium oxalate kidney stones. I have passed at least 15, and according to a recent CT scan, I have at least 7 more (several in each kidney). For several years I have been fatigued and have had sleep issues, which I attributed to having children who didn't sleep through the night.
Avatar f tn My son has been having issues since March. He has had multiple punctate kidney stones, at least a dozen sonograms, 2 CTs, and a list of tests. He was hospitalized twice (both times wiht blood in his urine) and when he was pain free this Summer a sonogram showed only one small stone. His pain returned and he again had blood in his urine (this time he also had crystals in urine) and a sono showed multiple kidney stones, measuring a bit bigger than his last ones.
15905440 tn?1443866928 we have a long history of thyroid problems (hypo and hyper) that comes from my mother's maternal and paternal side (and includes my mother). My maternal grandfather also has also had kidney stones once that he managed passed his without it causing an infection. Also my mother has a high uric acid level, but has never had any symptoms caused by it.
Avatar f tn Please help me my mom has had mutiplaying kidney stones now for about a year on both sides of her kidneys, which also are causing blockage. She has had a history of kidney stones but not so many at the same time.
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.
1126418 tn?1326169592 I take 400 IU of D3 daily now. He rechecks my blood, occasionally. He did warn me overdose of it can cause kidney stones. I also take SAMe, for depression. 10 years ago I was on prescribed antidepressants and was able to get off them with SAM-e. I was taking NerveFix for numbness but I'm on a very fixed income and it's been a couple months since I ran out.
Avatar f tn Should some of these enter the blood stream, the ONLY other organ that comes to the rescue is the kidney, that constantly filters the blood and this explains the dehydration, as the kidney now is working overtime filtering out the toxins using extra water. Water is the best detoxifying agent! Also another function of the kidneys is water regulation. When chronic conditions cause the kidney to overwork, kidney dysfunction is inevitable.
Avatar f tn I did have to go every 6 months for blood work. I was also told to drink plenty of water as it can cause the formation of kidney stones..... So if ur Dr is not closely monitoring u, and ur Vit levels have a talk with him/her and mention ur concerns. My Vit D, B12 and magnesium were all watched and I was on supplements.
Avatar f tn I have pretty much always had hundreds of stones in both kidneys, (not an exaggeration) I would always pass 1 or 2 stones a year with no problem. I believe my ureter is actually larger cause I can urinate a fairly large stone and I don't really feel it, I will feel it a day or so prior in my flank but usually not too bad a pain. Only once about 5 yrs ago did I have one too large and was in the hospital for lithotripsy and a stint. My question is.
Avatar f tn I am a 27 year old pregnant female with a history of kidney stones since the age of 16. I normally get a kidney stone every 3 - 4 months but now that I am pregnant it has gotten to the point where I am getting them every week. This past weekend I rushed to the ER because I thought I was in labor. Instead of being in labor I found out that I had passed yet another stone this time it was an 8mm stone with no pain medication except 2 tylenol that my husband gave me before we went to the hospital.
Avatar m tn Important difference since C is highly acidic and were excess not removes it would cause great damage, including kidney stones. B is a complex of importance to the extent that B is manufactured in a healthy (I stress healthy gut) we need the B complex to make our food absorb-able but we have a colony of friendly bacterium living in our intestines that actually produce some for us, this in turn makes our complex amino acid proteins into absorbabe compounds.
Avatar f tn Its a good thing that you made an appt with the urologist, the only thing I can think of would be kidney stones. We do have a kidney stone forum an if I were you I would pose this question to them and see if they can give you more insight! Feel better soon!
1341923 tn?1276130446 Abdominal X-Rays can assess the size and shape of the kidney's and urinary bladder and to see if either contains stones. Stones can act as a nidus for infection and interfere with function.
Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Sulfamethoxazole and blood pressure are not related. Fluctuations in blood pressure can occur. If persistently elevated it needs therapy. Did you mean you have pain in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen? If the pain is due to a problem from the liver like hepatitis, you should have associated symptoms like nausea and vomiting. Are you an alcoholic? The pain could be from the gall bladder too.
168348 tn?1379360675 I'm not too well versed but if ok with my kidney stones (cannot take some supplements bcz I create calcium oxalate stones) I am willing to take something to help with the muscle cramps I am getting. It proceeded into a full blown charlie-horse in the calf this morning ..... any thoughts? I'm game to try something o-t-c! All my minerals, vitamins, etc., were good when tested in November with the Endo .. this also included 24hr urine study done by Urologist and all was normal then.
Avatar f tn Incredibly, mutant, toxic nuclear painful and just plain HURT, A LOT, multiple kidney stones. Kidney stones can pass and poof - all gone. Then another - or a few others - can make their ugly journey into your ureter days or weeks later. This experience is not fun. I speak from experience. One little 5 mm just about made me grind the enamel off my teeth - but the lovely wretched staghorn model at a whopping 9+mm? And hooked and now on display in a window box?
