Avatar f tn I've been having a lot of pain on my right side, front, back and side and the pain takes my breath away. I had CT scans and ultra sound to determine if I had kidney stones. Then they sent me for x-rays with contrast and I was told I had a floating Kidney. The nurse for his office said there was nothing that I could do for the pain. "Just deal with it". Wow how can I when the pain takes my breath away and the pain is so bad that I have to lay down in bed until it goes away.
Avatar n tn that will descend into the abdomen, but are rarely diagnosed because when the person lays down for CT scans and ultrasounds, the kidney settles in its normal place. Has anyone had experiene with this or have any advice on how to convince a doctor I am not crazy?
Avatar f tn I would suggest you seek a nephrologist or urologist at the nearest university medical center that specializes in kidney stones for further evaluation.
Avatar f tn NO I was told that was not likely. It could be the doc your going to may have a misunderstanding. My sisters has often "joked" about taking care of my kidney etc. because she thinks that is in the picture. MY concern is most of us with MSK and stones, problems etc also have metabolic issues that may or may not result continue with a new kidney. Of course the collecting duct issues would be gone. How bad are your calcifications?
1963554 tn?1325451090 The tablets are very tiny and apparently palatable, though I always give them to my dog disguised in a piece of potato. I know there isn't much kidney function but this might help. Also anti-nausea drugs might help, especialy if given as a shot rather than as tablets.
Avatar n tn My symptoms are worse before my period muscles twitching, and swollen knees and feet pain when I get out of the hotub. I also have noticed in pictures throughout the last years my left eye has become droopy. . Any ideas of what could be happening to me?
Avatar n tn Hi, You can ask for an Xray, which would be quicker to schedule and to report, to check for the presence of kidney stones which my cause an obstruction of urine flow, even if only partial, and can predispose to UTIs. WBCs in the urine can be a sign of renal damage and inflammation, especially if accompanied by epithelial cells.
Avatar n tn He looked at me like I was making stuff up and told me that it is impossible for a skull to have an indentation because it is too hard. He laughed and told me to take pictures of it or immediately come in when it appears again. I know that I never had it before. I did get thrown off my horse when I was 18 and landed on the back of my head on asphault but really do not think his has any thing to do with the accident.
Avatar f tn Dripping would mean that you bladder is not being emptied properly, either due to a problem in the bladder, kidney stones, or an enlarged prostate gland. Although you can not see any blood in the urine, does not mean that there is no blood in there. A urine sample sent to the laboratory for analysis would show whether there was any blood in the urine. The doctor can also do a urine dip stick at the surgery appointment and this would show if you had any blood and any infections in the urine.
Avatar m tn So four days later i went back again. Well this hospital preforms a ct scan looking for kidney stones. They found the kidney stones they were looking for. However they left me with this overwhelming fear after telling me that they seen a shadow on my lower left lung. I had 3 pictures taken so for the radiologist to say he didnt like what he seen, does that mean it was on all 3 pictures and does that mean there is something there. I'm a 25 year old mother of 2.
967168 tn?1477588089 Maybe the kidney function problems. Have they done a CT to check for kidney stones? Do you have ketones in your urine regularly? If so do you go w/o eating at times? I have printed out your list of symptoms and will go over them. You have so many things going on. Do you have elvated liver enzymes w/ the swollen liver? Does it feel swollen or has a dr. confirmed this? Have they done a US or HIDA scan on your gallbladder?
Avatar n tn He said that they get negative results in blood and urine until about the 4th month before it starts to show positive. That kinda gave me some hope there. So, I guess as long as we don't see no blood whatsoever, that's a positive sign in itself that pregnancy is a possibility!! Let's keep the faith yall!
Avatar m tn I don't know of any health issues except for a couple of kidney stones in the past. I do have pictures I would provide if I knew how. Any help would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn I have yet to find a definite answer, though I have had my hormones tested and discovered all of my hormones are out of balance. I'm in the process of trying bioidentical hormone replacement to see if that helps. Hope you find some answers.
Avatar m tn Without any tests or pictures of what's going on in there, there's very little chance of recieving a persciption for the better medications ( I feel that the Nexium worked better than Prilosec, and that Aciphex worked better than both). the greasy, acidic, and overall bad for you foods must be cut out. these foods with irritate existing conditions and/or create new ones if it's GERD or gastritis. good luck, and i hope everything gets better for you soon.
Avatar f tn By the way, I believe there are 4 different types of gall stones as there are kidney stones. You will need a natural laboratory if your regular physician wont test for that. BUT they should freely test for parasites and polyps/tumor/ or carcinogens.
Avatar f tn My gallbladder was chock full of stones and sludge. So he scheduled me for surgery 10/2 first thing in the am, and removed my gallbladder. So now I'm hoping that once I'm healed that should take care of the nausea and abdominal pain.
1393112 tn?1294907542 Thank you for your responses, OK, firstly his bloods were normal, nothing elevated, vet didnt think pancreatitis because lack of symptoms, no fleas, regularly has flea treatment, and the pain he is experiencing is agony, not just a jump or yelp, today he had like 3 attacks, noticed he doesnt like lying on his sides, he always used to lie on his sides either left or right or upside down, now only lies on his tummy, have poked and prodded him all over with gently to fairly hard pressure, just to s
Avatar f tn Benadryl is also something of an anti-emetic, and can be given at 1 mg per pound of the dog's weight, but I doubt it will be very effective in the face of this kind of vomiting. Worth a try though. Another thing that helps is calcium - lots of it. I was giving Chica 2 Tums a day during her last couple of months. The calcium binds to phosphorus which is deadly to those in renal failure.
Avatar n tn All of my tests came up normal, except for my urine test. There were signs of blood in my urine. Have you all been tested in this capacity? I did not have a burning sensation symptom,but my doctor says that it is quite common for others not to have this symptom with a kidney infection. Nausea, flank (back) pain, vomiting, abdominal pain, and fever all associated with kidney infections. These two treatments of antibiotics has made some of my pain diminish, but not all the way.
429155 tn?1205676864 30, back to bed, and after a lot of thrashing about, holy of holies I sleep for 3 hrs, wake up and dressing gown is drenched in sweat, back to bed get another 1hrs sleep, then up at 07:30. It's now Monday. Monday 0945.Am feeling a bit better now, go see boss at work to explain ( goes ok ). then have a drive round, I find I am noticing things I took for granted before, things are in much sharper focus. Although I had real bad stomach cramps, the Flu like symtoms have all but gone.
Avatar n tn He did ask me to ask you all if you'd be willing to say what tests your kid(s) have been through in an attempt to get a diagnosis. We took pictures of the rashes that Tas has and sent them to the doc, it was great that he got to see what she goes through. We are talking now about going to Seattle Children's Hospital to see an immunologist and possibly starting a medication for the immune system. We haven't found naproxen, tylen, ibuprofren, prednisone to do her any good.
Avatar f tn I know that floating camera was above me, then would go to the right of me, high in the air, and take pictures, then fly to the left of me and take pictures, it was rather crazy, I had seen nothing like this before. Maybe you could inquire about it, and someone would know? Good luck on your search for answers! I hope the best for you and will keep you in my thoughts.
Avatar n tn Hi iam a 31 yr old mother of 3. I had my tubes tibes are the birth of my son in 2000. which was 7 years ago. I havent been pregnant since. But occasionally , Ive had the flutters in my left upper and lower side as if I were pregnant. I have periods occasionally. But, also since having my tubes tied many years ago, i have more problems than i ever imagined. I ve developed a condition called TUBAL LIGATION SYNDROME.. Most doctors do not tell us women about it. But it is real.
Avatar f tn I also have ,well had very,very thick hair in june I donated to the locks of love for the 4th time in 6 years.Its so thick they got 2, 12" ponytails.now since aug 22 i have filled 3/4 of a gallon baggy with my hair .Its fallig out fast .Does your hair loss seem normal or like its more than normal after about 7 or 8 months on topamax?
Avatar n tn Finally, after about 2 years of right side pain (which I though was due to my history of excessive kidney stones) I decided to stop getting my shot just to "see" what would happen. After only 5 months, I am a whole NEW person. My heart condition...vanished, depression & anxiety...tons better, sweating like a grown man.... dried up, and my non-stop flank pain....GONE! Like the previous post, I had no idea all of these things were related.
193609 tn?1292183893 Cameron said that he had a substance in his urine that causes kidney stones...and told me to get the results of the repeat urine test to her immediatly. Next, she asked me if he ahs ever been diagnosed with a lazy eye. She said his left eye points inward (which is evident in some pictures) and that I need to take a picture of him to the opthamologist and have him look into it. She said to give her a week to get ashtyn's records of his MRI, Blood tests, EEG, and BAER.
Avatar f tn Has any doctor checked your urine? If you have a kidney stone there may be traces of blood in the urine. I know you have had tests done but did any of them look at your left kidney? What are the symptoms of kidney stones? Kidney stones often do not cause any symptoms. Usually, the first symptom of a kidney stone is extreme pain, which begins suddenly when a stone moves in the urinary tract and blocks the flow of urine.
Avatar n tn Blood in the urine suggests kidney stones. When there is diarrhea, white blood cells in the stool suggest intestinal inflammation. Plain X-rays of the abdomen. Plain X-rays of the abdomen also are referred to as a KUB (because they include the kidney, ureter, and bladder). The KUB may show enlarged loops of intestines filled with copious amounts of fluid and air when there is intestinal obstruction.
Avatar f tn Did he order urine testing to check for blood in it, order an IVP(intravenous pyelogram) or a sonogram of your kidneys regarding his kidney stone theory? Gabapentin is a drug for nerve pain- a former neighbor of mine was prescribed that for post shingles pain. Baclofen is a muscle relaxant, so it seems the doctor thinks muscles may be involved in your pain- is it possible you did something in your sleep that you might not be aware of?
