What causes right-sided pain originated in kidney and cramps in limbs?
Kidney pain unlikely.
Hello XXXXXXX and welcome to HCM.
As an Urologist, i'd suggest, you need to relax, as your full body scan is normal.
Pain originating in kidney, will not be sensitive to skin touch, is what you must know. Once you realise this fact, your worry about kidney pain will be over.
Also, the changes in kidney could be reflected in your scan, which's normal.
As your MRI scan showed, you do have changes of hip joint arthritis.
This should be the origin of pain. That's why epidural pain killers were given.
Ibuprofen should be further taken, only if liver function's normal.
Understand the pharmacists aren't qualified doctors.
If you want to rule out urinary infection, get urine routine and culture tested.
For muscle cramps, do a blood routine,sugar,creatinine,platelets,and LFT tested.
If you check blood calcium,uric acid,parathyroid hormone,blood smear,and BMD done,we have an idea about possible cause for your symptoms.
Show the reports to doctor. You may send them here, for an expert opinion.
Wish you a speedy recovery.
Gleevec could very well be contributory.
As you hadn't mentioned the low potassium,i'd not advised you to check it.
But that's a common cause for it.
Gleevec could also be contributory, for this side-effect.
Your next check-up should clear this doubt.
According to reports, an effective pain killer medicine should help.
Wish you good health.
Follow your oncologists' schedule for Gleevec.
You should think positive and just follow your doctors' treatment advice.
It wouldn't be in your own interest, to try and experiment with pain killers.
They're known to be harmful to the kidneys.
Let your Oncologist decide about Gleevec schedule.
Physiotherapy is probably one of the best options you have.
After a few sessions, you'll find the difference.
Meditation is also very helpful.
Wishing you a speedy recovery.
