Common Questions and Answers about Symptoms of kidney stones in bladder


Avatar n tn Until your kidney stones and the UPJ obstruction are treated, you may require the stent in for a long time to prevent obstruction of that kidney. There are different forms of treatment for stones including shock wave therapy (Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy, or ESWL), percutaneous removal of stones under endoscopic guidance, alkalinzation of the urine, and stone basketing. The UPJ obstruction can likewise be surgically corrected.
Avatar f tn Hi, Kidney stones often do not cause any symptoms. Usually, there is extreme pain, which begins suddenly when a stone moves in the urinary tract and blocks the flow of urine.If the stone is too large to pass easily, pain continues as the muscles in the wall of the narrow ureter try to squeeze the stone into the bladder. As the stone moves and the body tries to push it out, blood may appear in the urine, making the urine reddish.
Avatar f tn This is always a possibility when ureteroscopy is done to eliminate stones. The tip of the stent rubs against the bladder, and can cause bladder pain or a feeling of always needing to urinate. The stent does widen the ureter to make a return look much easier to get the stones out.
Avatar m tn The other thought is that they have passed thru into your bladder so the pain is gone but they have not passed out yet, so thus the frequent urination. Of course a UTI is another avenue .. I'd call your Dr and let him/her know of your ongoing symptoms. At the very least, they will want to do a urinalysis I think.
Avatar f tn I'm not a doctor, but do have too much experience with kidney stones. For me, I'd get pings and pangs in my kidney as well as microhematuria (blood you cannot see by eye) in my urine when I have stones. I've also had the flank pain you describe .. for me it's been in the lower back. I hope with lots of water your stones move out for you uneveventfully. Please keep in touch. From what I've read stones <5.0mm usually move out on their own with a high % of non-complications, etc.
Avatar f tn Formation of kidney stones is increased when the body is dehydrated. Some stones form from lots of kidney infections and cysteine stones are hereditary. So do make sure that you never get dehydrated and drink plenty of water.
Avatar f tn pain in the left side of my back at my waist line. Pain in my bladder, and pain going down the front of my left thigh. How long should this pain last? It has already been over 1 week.
Avatar f tn Hi, Recently I went to my local ER with bad pains in my lower back and around my ribs. I told them my family has extensive histories of bladder/kidney issues (my aunt died as a child due to kidney failure, for example). After they did a simple urinalysis, I was given some antibiotics and sent on my way. Now, 3 days later, I find my symptoms are not even beginning to improve. I'm having to strain when I urinate, and throughout the entire time, but I feel like I'm not emptying my bladder.
503291 tn?1229423121 I'm in a similar stage of things, myself (ultrasound results came back today -- "several" stones, but I've no clue of exact numbers nor size, and the gallbladder itself apparently is a wee bit tattered from the passage of earlier stones, but nothing terribly horrid; my GP is hooking me up with a specialist in the next few days/weeks for the next step) and as far as I can tell, there's four primary methods.
Avatar f tn Urologist performed cystocopy (normal), ultrasound (normal with R kidney hydronephrosis), CT scan showed no hydronephrosis but two 2mm non obstructing LEFT kidney stones. I keep having symptoms of what feels like uti that subsides with drinking a lot of water. Macrobid removes all symptoms while i'm on it but they return 2 days after I stop taking them. I don't have any other symptoms, the pain I usually feel is bladder discomfort and pain in urethra, some burning and urgency.

Avatar n tn You will need to take care to restrict certain foods in your diet, especially vitamin C, as it has been reported to aggravate signs and symptoms of both kidney stones and interstitial cystitis.
Avatar n tn Hello, These symptoms can be due to an infection because of the inflammation in the urinary tract. Urinary stones can cause abrasion and irritation resulting in hematuria. Other possible cause is a kidney condition called glomerulonephritis. I would suggest that you consult your Doctor so further investigation can be done. You Doctor may request for some blood tests, urinalysis, urine culture, and an ultrasound or CT scan. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar f tn Tonight when I used the bathroom, I swore that I saw what looked like blood in the toilet (although one of the medications turns my urine orange, there was a streak that looked darker orange than the rest and seemed to have twinges of red it it). I'm becoming quite concerned and would love some advice on what I need to do. Thank you very much for any assistance...
Avatar f tn Sound like kidney stones - perhaps trying to pass. Drink lots and lots of water and avoid coffee, tea... Even an excess of Ca++ can cause stones. If you are taking vitamins with too much calcium, it can build up and cause problems. They usually pass within a few days but you need to keep the urine dilute. If it is a stone, you should try to collect it and take it in to you family physican and find out what type of stone it is so you know what to avoid.
Avatar m tn So i went to a eregular doc last tuesday and they did see the 'seeds'. They said it was either kidney or bladder stones(second most common kind). Meanwhile i starred to have pain in the lymph nodes in the groin region, some testicular pain, and minor nausea and light headiness off and on. I have an appy with a P.A at a urology clinic tuesday. I have not past any stones since wed. and they pain while urinating has gotten better, but I am still have all the other symptoms.
Avatar n tn I had a confirmed UTI in mid September. 5 days ago (Sat), I began symptoms again---extreme pain while urinating & difficulty emptying my bladder. Next day (Sun), I go to Urgent Care who takes a urine sample & says I have a UTI, gives me Cipro 500mb BID & sends me home. By Mon morning, the burning is unbearable & I see my gynecologist nurse practitioner. She swabs my vagina & takes another urine sample.
409451 tn?1206900232 I feel like I'm sitting sitting on glass before my period and a little into it so I always know when I am going to get my flow. Endo and kidney stones can cause bladder problems however endo doesn't produce blood in your urine not that I have heard of anyway but don't quote me on that. Most cases when there is blood in your urine is when you have a uti or kidney stones.
Avatar m tn As far as I know, these are the only treatments - "Watchful waiting About 85 percent of the time, kidney stones are small enough to pass during urination. This occurs usually within 72 hours of the start of symptoms. The best treatment for these small stones is to drink plenty of water (as much as 2 to 3 quarts per day), stay physically active and wait to pass the stone.
Avatar n tn I'm on my fourth episode of kidney stones, and all of us that have had them can surely agree, the symptoms are tell-tale and ones you don't forget. I get extremely painful cramping and horrible diarrhea EVERY time I'm trying to pass a stone. Actually, that's the first symptom I've had each and every time. It is the worst, painful diarrhea ever, and something I've only experienced when a stone starts moving through my urinary tract. Like clockwork, soon after, that hallmark back pain starts.
196896 tn?1189759421 I happened to find information on the about the correlation of kidney stones, high calcium levels, and Hyperparathyrodism. Check it out! Hyperparathyroidism is also known as "moans, groans, stones, and bones." The symptoms: Loss of energy. Don't feel like doing much. Tired all the time. Just don't feel well; don't quite feel normal. Hard to explain but just feel kind of bad. Feel old. Don't have the interest in things that you used to.
Avatar f tn In that recent issue I mentioned in this post where I had three stones, two were still in my right kidney and one had already passed into my bladder. The two in my right kidney were what was causing me all the pain and discomfort and the one in the bladder wasn't causing me any pain or discomfort at all.The one in the bladder that had already passed through my right kidney was 2.5mm in size and had been in my bladder for about a month at that point and still hadn't passed out yet.
Avatar m tn I just had a CT scan to check for kidney stones and I was told that I had none visible but that it did show that I had gallstones. All of my symptoms point to kidney stones, not gallstones. My pain is on the left side and severe nausea that is getting worse even though the pain has lessened in the last 24 hours. My doctor ordered the CT scan since I have a history of kidney stones. Can a CT scan miss the stones?
Avatar n tn Bladder infection may result in symptoms of urination, frequency urgency etc with fever and lower abdominal pain. Kidney infection may result in symptoms of pain in the loins, fever, and urinary symptoms. If you think that you may have one, please consult your doctor immediately. this is important to ensure that it does not spread and decrease the damage. You would need a urine examination and an xray of your lower abdomen before any other investigations are carried out.
Avatar n tn The presence of the crystals may suggest the presence of urinary tract stones which may cause recurrent urinary tract infections.A complete work up including assessment of parathyroid homones may be needed. Continue taking adequate amount of fluids each day.Also regular exrecises improves circulation. Take this one step at a time. Your physician is looking into further causes of your symptoms.
Avatar f tn In February I underwent two surgeries to get rid of 10 stones. Stones sitting in your kidney can cause kidney infections. Your best bet is to see the urologist and take care of those stones. Good luck to you!
Avatar f tn The doctor can arrange for a blood test to check her kidney function and also send your daughter for a ultrasound scan and referral to a urologist if there is a problem still with the kidney or confirmation of a kidney stone. Stones can be extremely small like a grain of sand or much bigger. But they do cause pain and discomfort when they start to move and can cause recurrent kidney infections as they damage the inside of the urinary tubes as they move.
Avatar f tn I am a 40 year old female with a history of kidney stones. Latest ultrasound (1 year ago) noted stones bilaterally. I have had previous symptoms of UTI only to have tests come back negative for infection but positive for blood. The last 4 urine samples have all tested positive for microscopic blood ( all tests done in the past 5 months). I just had my anual physical 1 month ago and urine test noted traces of blood with no infection. My worry is that this could be a sign of bladder cancer.
Avatar n tn Hello, If the ultrasound scans have shown some problem with the kidney then you should get kidney function tests done to rule out kidney causes which seem to be responsible for all your symptoms. My sincere advice is to consult a nephrologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
