Kidney function was a 3.5 in 2 days of iv has dropped only to a 3.2. ultrasound of abdomen, kidneys, CT, and ultrasound of renal artery all negative no blockage. chest xray noted small non obstructive stone. Urinalysis no blood or protein
History.... Was taking 750mg of motrin each day for back pain (possible cause) and also protein workout supplements otherwise healthy.

Thanks for writing to us.
The back pasin that your husband is having could be related to the renal calculus or may be related to a nerve root compression at the level of spinal cord due to a degenerative disc disease. An MRI scan can help to detect the cause.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
