Viral infection kidney

Common Questions and Answers about Viral infection kidney


Avatar n tn The final conclusion is that I have a viral infection plus a severe muscle spasm in my back. The viral infection is almost cleared up, but the muscle spasm prevents me from getting any sleep. Shingles was ruled out. If I situp for 3 or 4 hours, the pain eventually goes away but returns a couple of hours after I lay down. Tylenol#3 has no effect and it only makes me nauseous. I have also tried GEN-CYCLOBENZAPRINE 10MGGPM and a heating pad. I still wake up with the muscle spasm.
Avatar n tn Unfortunately, viral infections do not respond to antibiotics. For the congestion do steam inhalations. To do a steam inhalation, boil up a kettleful of water and pour this into a bowl (taking care not to get scalded). Put some Vick, or olbas oil, or any other menthol oil that you like into the hot water. Bend your head over the bowl of water and cover your head and the bowl with a towel. Breathe in the steam through your nose and out through your mouth.
377521 tn?1203476772 HIV, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C ABSTRACT Infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), or hepatitis C virus (HCV) can cause rapidly progressive renal disease, so prompt recognition and management are critical. Viral glomerulonephropathy can now often be successfully managed with a specific combination of antiviral therapy, immunosuppressants, plasmapheresis, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, and angiotensin 2 receptor blockers.
Avatar n tn While I've had abdominal pain and slowly increasing fatigue for the last two years, it's never been this bad, and the usual suspects for that kind of thing didn't check out when I saw my GP. The doctor at the ER said it could be a kidney infection, but it didnt look like there was enough blood for it... She also mentioned "Addisons" disease as something to look into.
136986 tn?1232403430 My mom doesn't seem to think anythings wrong until I start sleeping all day and I won't eat or do anything. I was just at the doctor too but it was because I had a viral infection. and if it is a kidney infection what could happen if I dont treat it?
Avatar f tn No other issues, BP 107/74, no cholestorol, no diabetes, great weight, non smoker. They think it was a viral infection that weakened his heart. Described to me as very weak and large. Seems to be responding well to meds from what we can see. Any thoughts? We are scared to death. He is only 42. They called in a infectious disease specialist who is interested in the fact that my kids had strep about 6 weeks ago.
Avatar f tn 20 and my HSV2 is 3.4. My question is since I am already aware that I had a previous viral infection could my numbers be elevated as a result of that? I know the CDC reports that anything below 5 needs further testing, I just did not like a nurse telling me over the phone that I needed to accept that I had this. I am trying to schedule a second opinion with an infectious disease specialist after the holiday season.
Avatar n tn Hi, Sorry to hear about your son's problem. Yes, neonatal viral infection, especially cytomegalovirus infection can lead to thrombosis.
Avatar f tn Elevated white blood cells may be caused by infection and may be associated with the slight reduction of kidney function. Mildly reduced kidney function may require observation, as well as control of blood pressure and risk factors. If the symptoms persist, it is best that you check with your doctor for proper evaluation. Additional diagnostic tests may need to be done. Take care and do keep us posted.

Does that help answer your question?
Avatar n tn Saw the doctor at this point, and he felt that I had a viral infection, did some blood work (thyroid, diabetes, Lyme disease-all normal), and, to be on the safe side, made an appointment with a neurologist. The following week, I started having numbness and tingling in my toes and feet and the doc tested my B12 levels, which were 187. He put me on supplements and within a month, they were around 1000, so he felt there was no absorption problem.
Avatar f tn The next day I had two more episodes of watery diarrhea, severe nausea and felt lightheaded and dizzy, I went to my GP and was diagnosed with viral gastroenteritis and given a liter of NS. I started to feel better for 2 days then suddenly had severe nausea and extreme dizziness not vertigo more a lightheaded presyncopal feeling. I rested in bed for a day thinking it would resolve but it only worsened along with loss of appetite, weakness, fatigue, feeling tired.
Avatar n tn Is this a good idea, or is it possible that it could be contributing to the spread of infection to the surrounding tissue, or causing the infection of new nerve ganglia in the presently infected area? Thanks for your time and patience in reading and responding to my detailed account and questions.
729288 tn?1251258033 Just got the call from my nurse. She said my viral load which was 121 in the beginning is now 9.. Ill get a copy of the test on the 15th so I can share all the numbers with you all. So not undectected and that was the day before my 6th shot. Could it be Im not going to clear? This is like a crushing blow to me. I thought I would reach UND by week 4.
Avatar n tn But possibility of urine infection and gut infection should be ruled out. Kidney stone is another possibility. Please consult your PCP for primary examination and treatment. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history.
Avatar f tn I did have a yeast infection that I successfully resolved with diflucan. My surgeon thought the yeast infection was to blame for the kidney and bladder issues. But since it is resolved and my pain is unchanged, I am not convinced. Any ideas?
Avatar m tn I forgat to say that my sister spent a week in the emergency room two weeks after she came from Cyprus. Her heart, livers and everything failed, a total system breakdown. Now others have recovered except the kidneys. Kidney sizes and urine levels are good. I am looking for to know what tests should I get done.
Avatar m tn With fever and anemia, kidney should be reassessed for infection. Kidney infection cause anemia. A urine examination should be done and if RBC are detected in them, then complete kidney function panel should be done. Leukemias, liver infections, parasitic infects of gut like amebiasis and giardiasis and SLE can all cause anemia and fever. Do discuss this with your doctor and get your father examined in this line. Hope this helps.
1752948 tn?1466357761 Is this a potential acute or recent infection? 50 IU/ml is an unusual viral load. In contrast, mine averaged 2million IU/ml. You appear to have some signficant connections that should help you with locating a knowledgeable and experienced Hepatologist. Good luck with that.
Avatar f tn The fact that you have a kidney cyst strongly suggests that you might also have nephritis from a kidney infection. Because of your other signs/symptoms this could be a systemic infection. Sometimes these are difficult to pin down, and most physicians essentially give up trying to find a cause, if an immediate cause can't be found.
Avatar n tn It sounds like some infection. Maybe a kidney infection. Do you remember it hurting or burning when you urinate? Because if you did and just ignored your symtoms it would go into a kidney infection which can be treated easy. And with your glands being swollen you are fighting something.
Avatar f tn I recently had Flu like symptoms with severe burning pain in my lower back and left side of my back, they said it was not my Kidney, but rather told me I had a Muscular Viral Infection and have me on Anti-inflamatories. What is this Infection and how does one get something like this?
Avatar n tn Back in January I had it and went on antibiotics right away. Cleared up in 2-3days...I came down with viral conjuctivitis 2 weeks ago. 2 days later my throat was red and killing me...I figured it was just the virus traveling as my stomach was ill a few days after that. Eye and stomach improved as well as my throat but my throat still remained slightly red and sore. Finally after 11 days I went and had a culture done of my throat and it came back positive for strep !!!
173975 tn?1216261375 So sorry to hear of your suffering, All I know is Cranberry juice seems to prevent the bacteria from sticking to the walls of the urethra, and you are so right, you need the antibiotics to prevent a kidney infection. Probiotics at end and after tx. Broken toe, I dont think theres anything they can do, but maybe set it, I think not sure but you can tape it to the next toe.
Avatar f tn Platelets count and Complete Blood Count/picture 6. Co-infection with HDV, HCV 7. Level of Vit D 8. Kidney Function test Dont worry too much about HBVDNA. It does not indicate liver damage at all. And remember, people live for many years with hbv. Just do not ignore or forget it. Post the results, and then we will see. Following is advised: 1. Stop drinking and smoking totally (if you do) 2. Reduce fats intake (LDL) 3. No red meat; just poultry or fish 4.
10419881 tn?1410010818 It is highly probable that you did have a viral infection. You are doing the right thing in drinking more fluids. Any urinary problems require fluids (especially water) to flush out the offending particle/virus/bacterial. Keep a record of your symptoms and also if any of these symptoms return. If the urine problem does return, it may be worth getting an ultrasound done of your urinary tract - some of the symptoms could indicate kidney stones.
Avatar f tn From your description of symptoms, it certainly sounds that you are suffering from post viral fatigue syndrome that may originate after a long lasting viral infection or if you had viral illness plus underlying disorder such as anemia, diabetes etc. One may experience muscle pain, headache, no refreshing sleep, malaise, pains in joints and sometimes nerve compression symptoms (tingling/weakness).
