Strep throat and kidney problems

Common Questions and Answers about Strep throat and kidney problems


Avatar f tn In 2006 I got strep throat. I usually got it about twice a year always accompanied by blood in the urine. They always treated with antibiotics and never followed up on the blood in the urine. In 2006 when I got it, this time I ended up with an infection in my blood stream that the Drs said came from an infection in my kidneys caused by the strep throat. They wanted to admit me into the hospital at at the time I had no one to care for my daughter so I had to refuse.
533880 tn?1237612452 Since Thanksgiving I have had the flu three times and I have had step throat 2 times. I have never had the flu or strep before, in the last month and a half I have had strep twice. At first I thought I had the flu, constant high fevers, my body was swore, could not eat, no vomiting, but after one week with that I would get a sore throat and that is when I would notice the white patches in the back of my throat. Is this the usually pattern of strep throat.
Avatar m tn The problem with an untreated strep throat is that it can lead to kidney problems called strep nephritis which can permanently damage the kidneys. Also, it can lead to rheumatic fever which can affect the heart valves. And it can also cause severe joint pain to the point where walking becomes difficult, fingers become swollen. My son had strep nephritis and I had the rheumatic fever and joint pain.
Avatar f tn Hello, I went swimming a early june and few days after that my ears started to hurt real bad and it gave me terrible headaches coming and going. Then I developed strep throat week later, got rid of it. I been putting Similasan earache releif it helped a little. And now its september 2, my ears don't hurt as bad but I think I lost some of my hearing, I can't hear like I use to. Now I'm having a problem with my left eye and left nostril watering.

Avatar n tn Well i went to the doc sunday, he did a strep test and it did test positive. He gave me Augmentin 875, and I went home and everyone said gargle gargle gargle. So I started gargling Listerine, is it possible that by gargling too much listerine I can make my throat more raw? Or will the Listerine just keep on helping?
Avatar n tn I am tired of this constant sore throat and pain. I want an answer so bad. I have for the last 5 weeks faught a trouble throat I have been on 2 antibiotics and well no change in the pain. I had blood work run on 6 days ago and the blood work showed no strep no mono.
Avatar f tn My whole body has pressure, I have congestion and my throat and ears hurt. My eyes hurt too . Is this possibly a kidney infection? All my labs for strep, flu and cold came back negative . They did find glucose and the uti still in my urine. I'm extremely sick . I was told my heart beat was super fast when I went But my temperature was fine . What is wrong with me ? Kidney infection?
Avatar m tn then Some things that could have occurred because of the strep throat are rheumatic fever, kidney disease, endocarditis, and my daughter went straight from strep to mono and had similar symptoms that he is describing. Also it is possible that he could have had fibromyalgia or lupus whose onset was triggered by the strep throat. You did not mention him running any temperature, so I'm guessing he has not been. Is that correct?
Avatar n tn with Sinus/allergy problems. He tested me for strep, it was positive, and gave me med for the strep throat. The conditions have gotten worse and now my ear has started to hurt. While blowing my nose i got a real sharp pain in my right ear and now a little brownish disharge is comming out of my ear and it is continuing to hurt. it feels like there is water or some sort of liquid in it and all noises are muffled and there is a mild pain in my ear.
Avatar n tn m really hungry and have an empty stomach. However, the strep throat may not be the reason for the PVCs. Doctors typically can provide no explanation for what causes PVCs in a person that otherwise has no heart problems and avoids stimulants like caffeine and certain cold medicines. If you were taking cold meds. during your recent illness that could have increased your PVCs. Just a hunch... Take care and try to relax.
Avatar m tn Hi, about 6 weeks ago I was diagnosed with strep throat which I use to get a lot as a kid, because I have very big tonsils. I took the antibiotics and everything, 2 weeks later I have a very infected lymphnode on the right side of my throat. I couldn't swallow or eat for 2 days and the pain was terrible. I got antibiotics, steroids, and another stronger antibiotic.
Avatar f tn 160 and a homogeneous pattern. Last year he had an ongoing strep throat infection that lasted for about 4 months, we eventually had his tonsills removed. With the strep throat, he would get a sore throat, the md would put him on antibiotics, then a few days after finishing the antibiotics, would get another sore throat. His aso lab test had been reading in the 300s, the last test was 280.
Avatar f tn What you are describing sounds more like strep throat. Do you have a fever? Strep throat can be quite painful when swallowing and cause a general feeling of malaise, with whitish "dots" appearing in the back of your throat. If left untreated, strep throat can lead to other more serious complications. You should seek medical attention.
Avatar m tn I understand that Streptococcus couse Strep throat but I hear that he can cause problem in the body skin and then is call Predator bacteria. I heard too that it can cause problem in the heart and Joints (An autoimmune disease)- what is happend and we speak about the same bactria?
2075737 tn?1379447682 Yesterday I woke up with a terrible sore throat and ear ache (everytime I get a bad sore throat my ears hurt too) and it lasted alll day and I still have it but now I have a white coated tongue. I think it may be strep throat. But its a damn Saturday and my dr isn't open. My next appointment isn't until Wednesday. Should I wait and try to be seen Monday or is this something that I should go to the hospital for?
Avatar m tn on the back of my tongue, these seemed to appear after taking the Nystatine mouth wash. Also the very back of my throat is dark red and sore, and it feels like my throat is rough and dry, and like something is stuck in there. Also my neck seems to be a little sore when I turn my head to the far left or right. When I try to sleep, I am always hot, and only sleep with a bed sheet on me.... and I also have a hard time getting a good night's sleep without sleep aids. Any ideas???
Avatar m tn After a bout of Strep and mono (though I will add that the sore throat was NOT severe in either cases oddly enough, I was swallowing fine and with relatively no pain, just slight irritation), I had noticed my throat seemed very "beat up" per se. Here is a current image of my mouth: Notice the seemingly cluster of bumps on the back wall, and overall "redness?" It's weird to me since I have absolutely NO pain, discomfort, or anything.
Avatar m tn But If you are being treated for dental problems sometimes certain strains of viridans strep. Strep mutans and Strep. Sanguinis can cause dental cavities if you have a problem with bleeding gums for example. It is not an STD. You normally have these bacteria and can get them anywhere. Possibly from a kiss since these particular strains like the oral cavity. But if they just said "strep viridans" it could be from the skin or elsewhere.
Avatar f tn My son was treated for strep throat(his rapid strep test was negative but he had pus on his tonsils, fever, and very bad sore throat). I also had twinges of nausea. About a week later I got up to go to work(I am an RN) and although I was OK the day before I was very dizzy, short of breath and hypotensive. I stayed home the next day as well.
Avatar f tn If you happened to have strep, if left untreated can lead to cardiac problems and kidney issues... I understand not wanting to give/take drugs unnecessarily but there are occasions where they are warranted! Also most antibiotics are completely safe during pregnancy and pose no risk to the baby.
Avatar n tn I know strep and allergies are definitely two different things, but it could be that if he has an allergy issue, his nasal passages and throat get irritated from that and then an infection occurs - the strep throat. This past winter I, myself, got strep throat twice and pneumonia once - the first bout of strep actually landed me in the hospital for 4 days.
Avatar f tn How are you? The usual cause of sore throat are viruses and bacteria. However, allergies, dryness, muscle strain (throat), pollutants and irritants such as tobacco, spicy food AND alcohol also cause sore throat. This is because irritants such as alcohol causes inflammation of your throat. It is always good to seek medical help to for proper evaluation and to identify the cause of sore throat.
Avatar f tn It makes the whole right side of my throat sore for days. It comes and goes and there was not a bump there when I saw him so he didn't actually get to see the bump. The only time I have ever experienced anything similar to this was when I would get strep throat as a child. I used to get it once a year, sometimes twice. I have not had strep since grade school. But the location and type of sores is almost the same.
Avatar n tn The last two times that I gave him oral sex I broke out in the most painful blisters on my tonsils. I went to the Dr. because I thought that I had strep throat and the test came back as just a virus, however, I don't know what virus.

7678907 tn?1400809113 I'm almost 36 wks & last wk had strep throat AND a sinus infection on top of a not so easy pregnancy, worst wk ever! I would suggest that on top of prenatals that you get some good probiotics from a health food store. Acidophilus is what I'm taking.
