Diagnosed with kidney stones and having pain in sacral and gluteal - Online Doctor Chats
I am getting pain in sacral (b/w hips back side) and gluteal (buttocks). It started at 2010 as per orthopedic doctor I was taken pain killer as long as 6 months. Pain decreased but now started again. If I eats potatoes and eggs the pain will increase. I want to know is it arthritis or other else. Recently I have been diagnosed by Kidney stone
Please read the above problem and suggest the treatment
Usually back pains subside in 1 month
But if the pain stays for longer time or is severe
then it is better to go for tests and confirm the reason
as far as the pain in back is concerned, strengthening back exercises along with calcium is recommended
as calcium may precipitate in the kidney to form stones
suggest me, what are the tests need to be done...?
The starting tests will be blood test along with x-rays
It will also rule out stones as cause of back pain
I am working in Jindal Steel Ltd. Bellary, our company doctor suggested to meet with Dr. XXXXXXX XXXXXXX Hospital, Bangalore.
It is better to see an orthopedic surgeon
I met with orthopedic surgeon at Shimoga, they prescribed pain killers for a month after 1 month they changed tabs like that 6 months I have taken pain killers.
Ask the doctor to do tests and figure out the cause
It seems like neurological pain
coming from lumbosacral spine
Now I decided to do the whole body checkup. I have Bajaj healthcare magic card, can I get cashless or discount for this checkup...

Do you have any question?
Are you there?
It is better to get tests according to the prescription by the specialists
finally which doctors I have to contact, orthopedic, nephrologhist, neurologist?
For back pain you can consult an orthopedic surgeon or even a neurologist
For stone in kidney, it seems like a small stone that is not bothering you much
You can try to flush it out by drinking enough water
You can do this under guidance of general surgeon or even nephrologist
Since neurologist and nephrologiosts are superspecialists, they are not easily available
surgeon advised to drink enough water..
Do you think it may have passed out
Maybe a repeat test is needed to find that
ya after 2 months I will go for repeat test...
can u suggest me the hospital at bangalore that most of the specialists available...?
are u there...?
Which area do you stay?
There are many superspecialty hospitals in Bangalore
Like St Johns, Manipal, Apollo, Fortis, etc
K I will go to one of the hospital and get treatment. Thanks for suggestion..
