Common Questions and Answers about What causes kidney stones yahoo


Avatar n tn Last year EWSL was attempted 3X to remove small, stubborn stones in my right kidney. Stones were not blocking the ureter but were causing pain for months. After 3rd attempt at EWSL it was decided to try laser treatment cystoscopically. This was "partially" successful. Some of the stones were removed, some he was not able to reach. I was left with a stint which came out before I made it home from the hospital.
Avatar n tn I have a history of kidney stones and basicly try to eat right and all to advoid having them and only have been able to go see a doc about that when they do flare up about every 4 years at an ER. I have been searching online and this is the 1st place that anyone has even hinted at the 3 periods a month is "normal" for being in a menopausal stage.
Avatar f tn This problem is typically associated with lower back pain, constipation, and followed by extreme lethargy. Yesterday I had a CT scan which checked for kidney and/or gall stones, and both areas turned out clear. The doctor said that there was blood in my urine but that my hemoglobin was fine. I was diagnosed this year with fibromyalgia, so I understand fatigue, but lately I have been almost unable to drag myself out of bed for more than a few hours at a time.
592774 tn?1325397342 I am tempted to try one by the author of this article: .http://****.*** Any was intrigued by his hypothosis that cola does not cause stones, dehydration from drinking soda instead of water causes the stones.
Avatar f tn I have read that kidney stones are sometimes a source of excruciating pain. Did the hospital check for them? Do seek further medical advice for the rectal bleeding which is never normal. Unless the doctors can positively state that the cause is minor (such as haemorrhoids or anal fissure) I suggest that you request a colonoscopy.
Avatar n tn I had my gallbladder removed in October and also had a liver biopsy done at that time due to elevated liver enzymes. When I had my levels tested again two weeks after my surgery, the levels dropped dramatically (one is now normal and the other is only elevated by 2 or 3 points). I had heard that gallbladder problems can definitely affect the liver enzymes. I also have fatty liver which showed first on ultrasounds and CT scans and is part of the reason for my elevated enzymes.
Avatar n tn Some of the side effects are cognitive (decreased attention, confusion, impaired memory) difficulties, kidney stones, and weight loss are the most common side effects. Some patients also complain about dizziness, drowsiness, paresthesia, and a nervous feeling. You can find more information in the PDR (should be found at your local library). I hope that topiramide helps control your seizures.
Avatar f tn question # 1 ? How much fluid is normal fluid? Is the same amount okay for each and every person? Or what about a 6' 3" man compared to a 5' 2" woman, would the fluid be the same for each person? What is considered NORMAL? question # 2 ? Would an abcess show up on a CT Scan? question # 3 ? What about acities? Would that show up on a CT? Well sadly to report now I don't have a doctor. He told me today that he is releasing me back to my family physcian.
284078 tn?1282620298 In my business it is extraoridinarily rare for an acute, severe problem to happen to both eyes unless there is some sort of terrible industrial accident, explosion or facial trauma. Topamax, when it causes this extreme side effects, will almost universally affect both eyes. What is the indicence? I don't think anyone knows but I'll just throw it out there.
Avatar dr m tn technique seems to yield lower rates of congestive epididymitis (though any vasectomy technique carries a risk of chronic testicular pain). What I wish my surgeon had said before the procedure: "Besides the acute post-operative pain, swelling, and bruising that we have spoken about, which most men find are very time-limited, fairly trivial, and manageable with ice and Tylenol, I need to tell you about the risk of chronic testicular or epididymal pain after vasectomy.
1316053 tn?1279513097 Mid back pain can also mean kidney stones and when you have IBS, sometimes other pain goes unrecognized. Diet is huge. Be very careful of what you eat! Keep a food diary with notes on how certain foods make you feel so that you have a better idea of what can trigger symptoms. Also, about the coffee. My advice is to cut way back on it. Coffee beans have a chemical in them called tenacin, the same chemical tanners use to tan leather.
1358341 tn?1282213443 0,524 - 0,774 - 0,308 I really think the Kidney food wasn't good for her health. But I don't know what is good. Now she is with Royal Canin Renal Special (because she wants it more than K/D with no taste) mixed with some Science Hills Senior big croccroc. And Science Hills 7+ wet turkey. " the quality of the protein, no By-products, no synthetic additives or fillers, this takes extra stress off of the cat's kidneys " I agree. Tell me names ?
Avatar n tn This would explain the suddeness of the onset of severe pain,and I recently noticed a large drop-off in my urine output as well as more pain in the small of my back.I did a Yahoo health search on kidney stones/ kidney failure and found that my symptoms matched ALL those that were listed! It's very possible that a stone could have been missed when my CT scan and abdominal film was done as I was very constipated on that day and this could have obscured the stone.
224988 tn?1208108297 I use it for my blood pressure management, plus my kidney doc told me that I was accomplishing something else as well because it helps stop the production of kidney stones! And when I would always be so acidic from drinking cokes a lot, I would produce tons of stones. I have gone through my first year without one single stone Woooo Hooo!!
1358341 tn?1282213443 Vets still live by the old standard of a prescription kidney diet which is low in protein and in phosphorus but more recent research indicates that too low of protein actually causes muscle wasting and supposedly shortens the life span of a CRF cat.(this is what I read so you be the judge). I believe that a good quality canned cat food such as Wellness no grain in Turkey, Merrick canned cat foods are acceptable for cats with kidney impairments. Azydol (sp?

Avatar m tn After several treatments, your sinuses will resume their normal function, and you will be able to breathe freely through your nose. If you want to know what causes sinusitis, and why the saline solution works, go to Part II of this journal. PART I 1. MAKING YOUR OWN SALINE SOLUTION WARNING: Do not use tap water, unless it has been boiled first. There is a rare microbe that can get in your brain from some water systems. Saline solution is salt water.

Avatar f tn I don't know your baby's numbers so I don't know what level she is in with her kidney failure. Sandy Grace never had a sticky substance urine. There was a few days at the onset of Sandy"s illness, that she did not vomit often, but after a couple of weeks, it was constant, (we did have some wonderful days in between where she seemed like she felt great, no vomiting, playing ball with us, but this does not last with kidney failure.
Avatar f tn So spicy foods and acidic foods can really cause a lot of pain. Before I was diagnosed, I'd had a lot of kidney stones (unrelated), and it seemed like I had a constant UTI. Dr had me on antibiotics (even though urine showed no infection), and of course the antibiotics caused yeast problems. I was also drinking cranberry juice like crazy. And my bladder pain and pelvic floor pain were terrible. Turns out cranberry juice is great to try to prevent a UTI...
Avatar n tn I wake every morning with horrible pain in lower back (kidney area) that radiates to the front of stomach (rib area). I have had battery of tests and found nothing. I am only able to sleep 5-6 hours before pain wakes me, also unable to take a deep breath until I get out of bed (very painful just to roll over), once I stand and get out of bed the pain almost immediately starts to ease. After about 20 minutes of walking around and after first morning void, pain disappears for remainder of day.
Avatar m tn During this time, I was checked for STD's and given ultrasounds of my scrotum and kidneys. I didn't have any STD's nor kidney stones. But the scrotum ultrasound only diagnosed me for Vericocele. The Urologist I saw at this time told me it wasn't a big deal and prescribed Naproxen. I didn't find that any NSAID's helped me. However, the discomfort ended up suppressing itself for the next two years to a point where I could do my daily activities and not worry about it.
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 n tn I thought I'd be laughed at by the net for searching 'hot spots on leg' but obviously not! Isn't it strange - I wonder what causes it. For about a month now I've had a hot spot on the same place, upper thigh on left leg, nowhere else. I can't decide if it's hot to touch or not and haven't managed to get my partner to feel it yet as it can go away again so quickly. I thought I'd spilled my tea on my leg the first time it happened it was suddenly so warm. It doesn't hurt, is just very warm.
Avatar n tn Thankfully does not seem to be addictive. Several others I know used the Phentermine and had severe kidney stones with extreme pain. I fortunetly did not. But stopped the use anyway. I was also advised by my Physician it can cause high blood pressure issues. Not worth the risks.
Avatar n tn Im 15-20 pounds over weight had hernia surgery at 2 and 12 and have had a few run ins with kidney stones so I had no idea where to begin with what might bew the cause. I feel it standing or sitting when it starts and the last few days it has been pretty constant. Wish there was a clear cut reason or two to ease my mind.
195469 tn?1388326488 On top of my MS, DH who has been the strong one, is now even sicker than he was with kidney stones. His diagnosis doesn't look good for me and I rittled with anxiety about what to do for the future. Here are his synptoms, a swollen spleen, had ultra sound that showed it, has elevated liver enzymes, low RBC and low platelets, has chronic pain on right side near ribcage that radiates into the back and this pain is now also near his left ribcage.
Avatar n tn I worked for a very savy poolguy who said the Ph level in the water is what causes itchy conitions and that water from the tap is never Ph correct for the body without conditioning.Some water is worse than others.Get a test kit from pool supply store to check your water.Chlorine also affects Ph, and too much chlorine can also cause itch.
