Kidney Stones :: Intense Back Pain Radiating To The Front

Aug 28, 2015

I woke up Monday morning with intense back pain that radiated to the front and cause sweating and nausea.  It lasted about 20 minutes and was gone.  I have had this about 5 or 6 times with months and even years in between.  This is the first time I went to the emergency room.  They worked me up for cardiac issue but found nothing thank goodness.  They did do a cat scan but said nothing about a kidney stone.  I am wondering if I could have passed a stone without knowing it or if the stone might be undetectable on a cat scan.  We have not been able to figure out what causes these episodes.

Back Pain :: Appendicitis, Kidney Stones, Ectopic Pregnancy?

I am having very severe lower back pain that came out of nowhere. Worst pain I've ever is constant. Tylenol is not helping nor ice packs, heating pad, or hot bath. I have been vomiting and can't even keep fluids down. I was constipated this morning but did have a bm followed by diarrhea. I have a slight fever. Could this be appendicitis, kidney stones, or possibly an ectopic pregnancy? I don't know if I am pregnant or not. Please help!

Kidney Stones? Nausea / Vomiting - Upper Back Pain Waves

I have had an achy upper back pain for a few days now. I was attributing it to having slept funny, but now I am thinking it was a warning sign I missed. I woke up at 2am with horrible nausea and sharp pain in my upper left back. It comes in waves and was so severe it brought tears to my eyes. I have had kidney pain from infection in the past and while different I think this pain may be kidney related too. I am trying to find some way to get comfortable enough to sleep since it is the middle of the night and I don't want to wake two sleeping babies and drag them to the ER. I tried calling the nurse helpline provided by my insurance company, but he just told me to try a heating pad and some Tylenol.
I have a lot of prescription pain meds in my medicine cabinet because I have had 2 c sections and another surgery within the last couple years and I hate taking pain meds... I took an oxycodone.  That along with a vibrating massage mat under my back seems to be helping with the pain for the moment, but the nausea is even worse now. Any suggestions for that? I just need to make it to morning so I can go to an urgent care clinic. There is no one to watch the babies right now and of course o would get sick on Sunday when my primary care doc is closed.

Lichen Sclerosus :: Scarring And Pain In Front / Back On Loo

I'm 46 and have been diagnosed with LS for approx 8 months. Can't seem to get it under control and despite using hydro mol, and both steroid creams I find I am now in a worse state than I have been for sometime. In tears every time I go to the loo from pain both front and back. Can't use the steroids as I now have raw skin and it stings. Been recently on antibiotics and wondering whether this has had a worse effect although reading about this does not seem to cause a problem. I have scarring and the piece of skin between both areas in now extremely sensitive. Been to see doc and dermatologist but never seems to co inside with a bad outbreak. Haven't had sex for months now which is also depressing as worried about husbands need a even though he is very supportive. Just can't seem to speak to anyone who understands. I've also got vitiligo apparently this can be linked or is seen to be linked to LS as an immuno problem but nothing else. Can anyone help with any suggestions for relief?

Temporomandibular Joint :: Bottom Front Teeth Hitting Back Of Top Front Teeth?

I am hoping to get as much information about an issue I start experiencing this week. I woke up Monday and noticed my bottom front teeth are now hitting the back side of my top front teeth, when I close my mouth fully (teeth clenched or chewing). Prior to this I could clench my teeth without issue and this unusual touching did not occur. That said, this is freaking me out.

I have an appointment with a Dentist next week but want to educate myself as much as humanly possible. I have spent considerable time researching this but am getting tired of the same links appearing in my searches. While not getting all the answer I seek.

I have read here that this is the first sign of TMJ. I have gone through listing of the symptoms and I quite literally have next to none. I have no headaches, no migraines, no tight or painful jaw, no loss in range of motion, no jaw popping when eating or opening and closing mouth (I can make it pop if I move my jaw from side to side. I have been able to do this since I was a kid though). I also don't grind my teeth, though I have always had a habit of clenching a few times throughout the day.

I have had tinnitus for a couple years now due to loud music, so I guess this is the only listed symptom I have. But like I said, the tinnitus has been caused by hearing damage and been around for some time.

Has anyone here experienced what I am currently?

If so, what was the treatment?

How did you fix this?

Is this TMJ?

Are there any self administered treatments I could start trying?

Pain While Stones Still In Kidney?

Is it possible to have kidney stone pain while the stones are still in the kidney? I have about seven stones in my right kidney and five in my left... I've had lower back pain for almost a month straight and nothing makes the pain go away. I'm trying to get my urologist to call me back, but that is next to impossible if I'm not in the emergency room doubled over in pain. Any suggestions/comments are welcome here

Pain After Kidney Stones And Stent

I had my first kidney stone in February of this year. I had lithotripsy twice on my right side and also a stent. The stent was removed after three days. I have had a constant stabbing pain where the stent once was. I have seen many different doctors and been to the ER several times. Each CT scan has come back negative for more stones and doctors cannot find a reason I am still in pain. Anyone have the same problem?

Possible Kidney Stones? Pain Below Bottom Bra Strap

I am extremely frustrated. I have been sick since Aug 27 with extreme back pain. The pain is right below the bottom of my bra strap on the right side (slightly above where the I thought the kidneys are located). I am also having pain in the right side and rt groin area. The Dr's say that I have a lot of blood and crystals in my urine, but the CT scans don't show any kidney stones. The CT scan did show that the right kidney was swollen and the ER DR said that either the urethra or ureter (can't remember which) was swollen and enlarged as if I had passed a stone. I had an appointment with a urologist last week, and even before introducing himself, he told me it wasn't a kidney stone and referred me to an Ortho DR. He didn't examine me at all - did not touch me. He did suggest that I have cystscope, but said it would not help my back pain. Therefore, I didn't do it. I am usually a very tough girl. When I gave birth to my son several years ago, I didn't utter a single complaint (natural childbirth). But several times over that past few weeks, I have found myself in tears because the pain is so bad. I have had everything checked - gall bladder, liver, pancreas, spleen .....everything. What is a girl to do? I don't normally take any pain meds or narcotics. I am usually extremely healthy.

Side Effects Of Kidney Stones Other Than Pain?

Hi everyone! I know that kidney stones are terribly painful and that there are various unpleasant treatments to get rid them. In other words, kidney stones are not something you would aim to acquire :-). But, my question is, other pain, what are the consequences of kidney stones? Are there any side effects?

Kidney Stones, Pain, Nausea, Depression

I'm not sure where to put this and I'm fairly certain I do not have enough space for all of this. But I will try anyways.

I am 27 years old and male. And my life right now is not great. I have a long list of medical problems most of which have gone untreated for years and are all more or less working together to ruin my life. Since I do not have the appropriate length here to explain all of this a simple list will have to do for now.

Current Issues:

Chronic Pain left and right flank

Chronic Nausea (will result in vomiting)

ADHD (untreated)

Anxiety (Untreated)

Depression (untreated)

Sleeping problems

Eating/Weight problems

Chronic Kidney stones

UPJ obstruction and Hydronephrosis of the Left Kidney (3 surgeries to repair)

What I NEED help with is Identifying what I need to do to make this better. I have been seeing doctors for the past 23 years of my Life. I honestly need A LOT more space to explain all of this.

Pain After Blasted Kidney Stones Procedure

I'm 22 and got my kidney stone blasted two days ago (10-2-13) and I was wondering if anyone else has had this procedure? I am in a world of pain. and I was just curious how long I can expect this pain to last. My urologist said the stone was at the opening of my kidney and it was about 6mm. They blasted it and put in a stent. I feel like I have been beaten with a baseball bat. I was just curious if anyone else has felt this pain and how long I should be expecting this to last.

Sudden Pain In My Penis - Kidney Stones?

I felt the need to join after something that happened yesterday and it's left me in a state of panic. I am currently 17 years old and while showering felt an intensely sharp pain on the tip of my penis. I couldn't explain what it was and then urinated after my shower but felt like something is blocking it as I couldn't pass urine like I normally could. The next morning (today) I woke up and touched my penis to see if the pain was still there but it wasn't and I could pass urine normally again. It isn't until now when I tried to examine my penis further that I felt like I pushed something to the end of my penis and touched it when extreme pain came back again. My mother and sister both suffer from kidney stones and I'm going to see the doctor tomorrow but came on here to see what you guys thought.

Kidney Stones :: Pain Inside - Ball Valving

I have been passing stones regularly for the past 3-4 years, I've had multiple scans (ultrasound and CT scans), seen a nephrologist and urologist, I've had the surgery to have 11 removed from both my kidneys with stents. The urologist left 4 in due to them being too small to grab. This was 2 months ago and since then the 0.1 cm stones have grown, I have passed one 2 weeks ago and was told that the other three are still in my kidneys and should not bother me, fine, accept I've been in severe pain to the point it's brought me to my knees. My urologist sent me to have 2 ultrasounds in the last 3 weeks and a ct scan. The ultrasounds (two different us techs from two different times) both said I had a 5x4mm in my left and a 6x8mm in my right but the CT scan said that I have a 3mm in my right and a 2mm in my left? Not sure what to believe all I know is that they are non obstructive but my kidneys are hurting so bad, could the ct scan be wrong? I also have what's called phlebotomist in my pelvis which mimics a kidney stone but no other test showed that. What's really going on?! I've heard of a thing called "ball valving" could this be what's causing the pain and if so ALL doctors have told me that if they are in your kidney you can't feel them! So frustrated PLEASE HELP!!!
