Avatar f tn Hi there, Medullary sponge kidney disease may be asymptomatic in most people .Few people may have a UTI or kidney stone. UTIs and kidney stones share many of the same symptoms.MSK is suspected in patients with repeated UTIs or kidney stones. An x ray called an intravenous pyelogram can help confirm the diagnosis. No treatment can get rid of cysts in the affected kidneys.
Avatar m tn Unless someone lives in an HIV endemic area such as an inner city, is an immigrant from a country with high HIV prevalence, is bisexual or a partner of a bisexual, or is an injection drug user or commercial sex worker, the prevalence of HIV in people without these risk factors is extremely low- less than 1 in 1000 people.
Avatar n tn This is a normal bacteria for the anogenital area. It becomes an issue in pregnancy, mainly for the infants sake. I don't know if it's ever something that needs to be treated in a non pregnant woman. Maybe if it sort of took over? Just like yeast is also a normal inhabitant of the female genital tract, if there is an imbalance and it overtakes the normal flora, you get symptomatic. Maybe group B strep is the same.
Avatar n tn I really didn't cramp right after the iui but I did start cramping that evening I have been cramping on and off since sometimes it more like ovulation pains in my right ovaryIi go back this Thursday 14th for pregnancy test.But at other times it's like menstral cramp.Then at other times there is no cramping at all.I do pray that this one is it.I believe that maybe I'm where I'm at because God needed me to be there.
Avatar n tn Most common cause is stones in kidney which is blocking urine pathway. Other causes are changing sexual partners frequently, pregnancy, diabetes and of course childhood infections. The urine can also be due to retention of urine anywhere in its flow due to obstruction. Your husband needs a complete physical examination and investigations like complete urine examination, urine culture, swab specimen from the genitalia and ultrasound lower abdomen to find out the cause.

Avatar n tn The pain was also on the right side of my neck and I had pain on my right side near my kidneys. I have had kidney stones in the past and this was nowehre near that severe- more of a dull pain- but definitely the kidney area. Yesterday, BP was finally coming down (after 2 days of being extremely elevated) but it is still not back to baseline. Now, I am having pain in my mid-upper back (between shoulder blades) which is searing, but comes and goes.

Avatar n tn What Causes Premature Aging of the Placenta In Pregnancy? By Julie Ackendorf, eHow Contributor Print this article Premature aging of the placenta is a serious condition that can occur in pregnancy, and can lead to the baby not getting the nutrients it needs to survive, requiring it to be delivered prior to term. Often the placenta is calcified, causing parts of the placenta to die and no longer be useful.
1916673 tn?1420236870 Processed manufactured dog foods usually have the appropriate ratio of these minerals, but when an owner decides to produce home cooked food (for all the right reasons and with the best of intentions), the ratio is harder to achieve. In younger dogs, kidney stones and the resulting blocked urinary tract, inherited genetic defects affecting the kidneys, kidney infections and ingested poisons (notably anti-freeze and rodent-control poisons) can all cause phosphorus levels to rise.
Avatar n tn To all, In response to Haney's question, I have been diagnosed with severe hydronephrosis in my right kidney and moderate to severe in my left. I passed a kidney stone 3 weeks ago and have had bad pain on and off since. I definitely suggest to keep on your DR like I did to get to the bottom of your problem. I was blown off by my OB a couple of times and I think that is why it got so bad without me knowing.
Avatar m tn This could have resulted in prostatits and maybe even cystitis and infection of kidney. However chances of kidney involvement are less as you do not have fever. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn Try a google search involving kidney pain and pregnancy, you will find a lot of information about various kidney issues that can arise during pregnancy, especially the ureter issue I mentioned in the topic below. There is far to much info to copy and paste here, but that simple search may bring an answer or something to discuss with your OB. If you still feel like you are getting nowhere and the problem still persists, maybe you should consider another opinion.
202436 tn?1326477933 My daughter was conceived the first month trying after the miscarriage, and I had multiple kidney stones during the pregnancy and a kidney surgery at 34wks pregnant. Kahlan was born on her due date; it was a short labor, only a few hours, and I only pushed for 20 minutes; but when she came out, she tore me in every direction. I nearly bled to death on the table because I bled out so quickly, and they wheeled me into the OR with the OB kneeling between my legs and sewing as we went.

Avatar f tn A CT scan was done as well as sonograms and Xrays as they expected either kidney stones or a tubal pregnancy and even the u/s scan didn't show the cyst - we only saw a huge round bubble on my right side, which the ER doctor told me was "gas due to IBS". I was sick to death a week later and went to the GYno and she also did a u/s scan and couldn't see anything and I was sent to hospital because the pain was unbearable.
Avatar n tn I have been to a GYN, Urologists, primary care physicians, you name it I have seen them. I have had kidney stones removed, laproscopic surgery (nothing abnormal) and a cystopy (spelling). I was actually hoping that the Lap would indicate that they had found something wrong so they could fix it. My GYN seems to think our next step is to remove the uterus, I just don't see how this can help.
Avatar n tn You may also have kidney stones they can go from uncomfortable pain, to pain where you need to be sent strait to the er.
Avatar m tn Some smells can come from liver or kidney diseases, or from acid reflux in the stomach. 8. Some smells can come from having a bad mix of bacteria in the intestines, and somehow the smell comes out through the sinuses or lungs. The best solution that I have seen is The Schwarzbein Principle by Dr. Diana Schwarzbein, MD. 9. There is a disease called atrophic rhinitis, which involves the decay of the mucus membranes in the sinuses.

Avatar n tn My hematologist and Neurologist say it's because of the estrogen in my pregnancy, so far I have no additional clots..Glad found people that can understand what I'm going through...
Avatar n tn Could be kidney stones. I get kidney stones. I've been getting them since I was young. When I was younger, I had no idea what it was. Now I do. They tend to get worse as an adult and in some stages, can be as painful or worse than child birth. I would see a urologist.
Avatar n tn finally found out it was kidney stones! I thought it was something older people got. It happens every once in a while. I guess they can move around and not always pass causing a similar discomfort or they are passing through the urethra but are very small so probably not noticable. An ultrasound showed this. They also said as someone else mentioned I possibly may have medulary sponge kidney....but there is nothing you can do about that. Anyway, I am fit and healthy and 31.
Avatar n tn Make sure to drink plenty of water because Topomax can cause stones - not just kidney stones. And if you find yourself forming one, drink lemonade to acidify your system. Make it with real lemon juice and artificial sweetner to taste - the acid will keep the stones from forming. My doctor told me to drink my water with a lemon wedge or squeeze of lemon all the time, that way I'm sure to keep a little acid in my system.
Avatar m tn I'm one yr post kidney transplant after 5 yrs on hemodialysis. My diabetes II kicked in post-transplant as I was warned it might. Cleve Clinic post-transplant team has me on about 20 meds, some immunosuppressive, some lipid control, some blood pressure control including lisinopril. I do have a bit of a gagging cough during the day. The increasing insulin doses to control my blood sugar was a contributing factor in a significant weight gain month after month post surgery.
Avatar n tn It started after my second pregnancy when I decided to exercise. It will act up during any movement tucking in towards the body. 2 years ago I started having a right rhomboid spasm and I wonder if there is a connection since it's on the same side and spot front and back. I carried my kids quite alot. I feel maybe the pulling on my shoulder could have disrupted my spine and muscles. Nothing has helped my ab spasm just avoiding the activity that provokes it.
Avatar n tn Magnesium's role in preventing heart disease and strokes is generally well-accepted. In addition, there is a substantial body of knowledge demonstrating that magnesium supplementation is effective in treating a wide range of cardiovascular diseases. For example, magnesium was first shown to be of value in the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias in 1935.
