Symptoms of kidney stones in pregnancy

Common Questions and Answers about Symptoms of kidney stones in pregnancy


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 n tn Hi, Are there other symptoms present? A kidney stone is a solid mass made up of tiny crystals which may present as abdominal pain, blood in the urine, chills, excess urination at night, fever, flank pain or back pain, painful urination or urinary frequency/urgency. Abdominal CT scan, xrays or ultrasound of the kidneys will confirm the diagnosis of kidney stones. Menstruation problems are hormone and stress related.
7019649 tn?1396796117 I'm on my last day of antibiotics, and they didn't clear up my symptoms. I have a history of kidney stones, and I'm afraid that's what is going on again. Anybody have any experiences with kidney stones during pregnancy? What did you do for them?
Avatar f tn He has theorized that I’m making stones because of infection in the kidney (I have a history of chronic UTI’s, but all of my cultures in the last year have come back negative), a condition like RTA, or my kidneys began hyperfiltrating due to pregnancy. Do these causes sound reasonable? What other tests should I be asking for? How unusual is it for the stones to be in this meaty part of my kidney and since they are still in my kidney aren’t they just going to continue to grow larger?
Avatar f tn I am not allowed to put in the dosage of supplements here , but the books I listed will give the answers. Hello to all, Kidney stones can be or are caused by too much calcium and lack of Magnesium > Since you are researching. I'd like to direct you to Search "Magnesium and kidney stones".
Avatar f tn Upon getting cats can it was revealed that my rt kidney was extremely enlarged and full of fluid with calculus stag horn stones measuring over 2inches. At first the plan was to drain the kidney and break up the huge stones. After having a kidney function test, well it was discovered that my rt kidney had no function at all and needed to be removed. It was described as a huge beachball about to explode. I had kidney removed along with gall bladder.
Avatar n tn Nurse talked to me about the symptoms and said it might just be muscle/ligament pain or kidney stones. She told me to take Tylenol and they would check me out at my next appointment, next TUESDAY morning. (they did offer an emergency spot for me today/thursday but it was during class that I couldn't miss even though it meant that I was sitting there in tears during the test). She told me if it got too bad to go back to the ER. Anyways. tylenol isn't touching the pain.

Avatar f tn I'm 27 weeks and I was seen in labor and delivery on the 25th of March for contractions and pelvic pressure. I reviewed my health history online today and according to my urinalysis results I had large amounts of blood and also had protein. My doctor didn't tell me anything regarding this. Now, I've been having a lot of cramps just above my pelvis and extreme back pain in my rib area down to the lower part of my back.
Avatar n tn I'm a 26 year old female with a family history of kidney stones. In Jan 09, I experienced a dull aching pain in my side that lasted for a couple weeks and then went away. I experienced something similar in late Feb 09 and after a week of this pain, I went to the clinic (I'm in the military). The dr couldn't find anything wrong and said I must ahve pulled an abdominal muscle. However, since I mentioned my dad has had over 40 stones in his life, he sent me for an x-ray.
Avatar f tn Pregnant women often times do not feel the symptoms of a UTI (urinary tract infection) of burning, urgency, and spasms. This leaves the bacteria free to spread, and it does, up the ureters and into the kidneys. This kidney infection is called pyelonephritis, and it WILL get your attention. The back pain is severe. Sometimes making it too painful to stand upright. Fever, chills, diziness, and waves of nausea soon follow. You cannot let an infection like this go unchecked.
4943237 tn?1428994695 Poppy, I was treated for the exact same symptoms by my urologist in June. A month of antibiotics. He said I had all the sx of a kidney infection. He requested urinalysis but the lab messed up the labelling -- basic tests showed nothing. The antibiotics did the trick. If you can wait for a pcp appointment, great, but get some help with this as soon as you can. I've gone a couple of months in the past because my gp won't rx antibiotics without positive results, but urologist is certain.
Avatar f tn Has anyone had a kidney infection during pregnancy? My OB isn't going to be in until Wed because of the holidays. I've had a kidney infection before, I get UTIs really easily and have already had 1 UTI during this pregnancy. The symptoms I have feel exactly like my previous kidney infection, but I don't know if its really kidney infection pain or pregnant pain. /: Should I go into the ER? Its a sharp, stabbing pain on both sides of my middle back. It doesn't feel better when massaged.
Avatar f tn Will they be able to tell if its a kidney infection instead of a uti by a urinalysis and cultures or should I calm them back in the morning? The nurse said it'll take up to 48 he's for the results.
456645 tn?1208679571 That is the more common signs and symptoms are flank pain, blood in the urine, formation of kidney stones and repeated urinary tract infections. In your case, is this a confirmed case of nephroptosis ? What examinations were done to establish the diagnosis? Do you have other associated symptoms?
5900973 tn?1396067991 After weeks of pain and all sorts of symptoms I have learned I have kidney stones... I'm not thrilled about it but glad to know what has been going on.. There isn't much the dr can do for me so I just have to tough it out. Any one else go through this when they were pregnant?
Avatar f tn Or maybe it's something else with the exact symptoms of stones. I get that kind of pain about once a year. On a daily basis though, I have discomfort now. I just turned 21. It's been gradual and I only started to really think about it recently. If I have to pee, the urge comes on suddenly and if I don't get to a bathroom ASAP, I'll be in pain and nearly pee my pants. It's often for a small amount of urine as well.
Avatar n tn my period finally became normal andfor aybe the past four months i've been feeling sick i've taken pregnancy tests all came up negative.
Avatar n tn Any of you know of any possible complications with pregnancy if you have a floating kidney? Or any of you with floating kidneys ever gotten pregnant?
Avatar n tn Hi, What treatment was done previously? Most kidney stones pass out of the body without any intervention. However, when stones are big and cause lasting symptoms or other complications, management is different. This will require medical treatment or possible surgery. Talk to her doctor about her pregnancy and have her evaluated further for proper management. I also recommend that she rest and drink plenty of fluids. Take care and keep us posted.
231903 tn?1281486184 In the past, i have had three kidney stones, this does not feel like one though? I do have mild endometriosis. I have had a large ovarian cyst before, as well as an ovary infection. I also suffer from anxiety and panic disorder as well as sleep paralysis. Back in February i had temperature spike of 104. with alot of rectal bleeding (doctors never determined the cause) and it was a one time thing. Any answers would be appreciated. Thanks.
Avatar f tn I had a ultrasound Tuesday and my gallbladder was full of gallstones. I was in so much pain I was given 2 shots of morphine and a shot of dilota in a 5 hour period and it still wasn't easing the pain. I got admitted to the hospital had emergency surgery the next day. Wednesday, May 1 2013. I feel so much better now that they removed my gallbladder.I was only 10 weeks pregnant. My baby is fine, I'm just so glad my little love big is ok and I'm feeling better.
Avatar n tn Symptoms like nausea and chills are suggestive of UTI. But as of now that you are pregnant nausea could be due to the presence of HCG in the blood. I would also suggest to take a ultrasound and see where the stone is located. Proceedures in pregnant women can be done in the 1st trimester and after delivery, but only if they have a clear indication. In your case, as of now you do not have UTI's or deprived renal function so managing with optimal analgesics would be prefferable.
Avatar f tn Ive had a UTI and kidney stones during pregnancy. I may have a stone now so going in for kidney sonogram next week. Yhe best thing u can do at this point is to drink tons of water. Also, ive found that drinking pure cranberry juice(not cocktail,only 100% cranberry) helps a lot and sometimes eliminates symptoms all together. Good luck.
351317 tn?1204755471 Glad you found out the thyroid antibodies, maybe that will be of some help. I don't remember the name but I think there is an autoimmune disease that attacks the thyroid, maybe hashimoto's. If you still feel celiacs could be I would go for the biopsy it seems the only sure way to diagnose it.
Avatar f tn I am 24, a mother of one, pregnant with number 2, and I currently have 7 stones in my left kidney, and 5 in my right (and it could be more, those were just the ones they could see with an ultrasound, because I obviously cant have a CT or anything better) I also have had chronic pain since 2004 when I had my first stone.
Avatar n tn In 2005, I was diagnosed with Medullary Sponge Kidney (both of them) after two separate episodes of gross Haematuria. About a year later I began experiencing headaches, fluid retention in my ankles, feeling very tired, not being able to remember things, constipation/diarrhea and a lot of abdominal pain that usually results in extreme bloating in my stomach. My stomach can bloat so much I look like I'm in early stages of pregnancy. When my PC doctor presses on my belly it's extremely painful.
Avatar f tn After I had my son the symptoms went away for a few years until I got pregnant with my second son then the symptoms returned and stayed for my whole pregnancy again! After I had my youngest son the symptoms went away for a short while and then returned! I've now had this reacuring problem every month for the last 2 and half years!
Avatar f tn Hello, Recurrent urine infections could be due to various reasons. 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 t obstruction. So you should get a ultrasound, CT scan done and also some urine and blood tests.
Avatar n tn The tube should reduce the pressure on your kidney and relieve your symptoms, There are some specific changes that occur during pregnancy that affect the urinary tract that might increase your chances of having problems with your stone or symptoms. The ureters can be dilated in pregnancy and may not eliminate urine as efficiently if dilation occurs, this is called hydronephrosis. The ureters increase in size approx.
