I am suffering from back Discomfort. Is it because of kidney problem ?

Hi! I am 23 years old male, from Pakistan. 1 month back i had a sever right iliac fossa pain radiating towards my groin, I landed up in ER and was diagnosed as having nephrolithiasis. After a series of tests including U/S KUB and pyelogram . I was given no medication and was advised to drink whole lot of water. Now i m feeling a dull discomfort on my right side of the back, no urinary symptoms what so ever, I was wondering if this is due to kidney problem or is it muscular pain as I need to power my generator on which has the same mechanism as old cars which required you to pull a rope to get the engine started. Thanks

Hi,
Welcome to healthcaremagic.
Nephroliathiasis-stones in kidney have typical presentation as severe iliac pain radiating towards groin.
Small stones usually flush on their own only drinking enough of water is required.
Pain in the back occurs usually when stone produce an obstruction in the kidney.
It doesnot seem muscular pain.
You need to see your physician again.
Do you have fever?chills?nausea?vomiting?abnormal urine colour?blood in urine?
you need tests:
Urine analysis of the stone to show what type of stone it is
Uric acid level
Urinalysis to see crystals and red blood cells in urine
You may need to change your diet to prevent some types of stones from coming back.
Wish you good health.

Drink lots of water, if possible have some coconut water twice a week. Avoid Tomato and Palak. If available please try Tab Cystone 2 tablets twice daily for a month. Best luck.

I had three back surgeries within one months time last surgery March 3, 2013. Sciatica. The surgeon nicked my dura sac, he did not realize just how bad I was until he went in for the surgery. I ended up with a hematoma and had my second surgery. Then I got sepsis and had my third surgery. It has been a little over a year now and I am in a lot of pain. Back, buttock and down the leg on the right side. I did have pain in both legs before the surgery. The pain is unbearable most of the time. I saw him today and he said there is nothing I can do for you. He said the hematoma caused nerve damage. My life is pretty much nonexsistence. I also have arthritis in my back and have fibromyalgia. Just how much of this is it the doctors fault for what happened to me? I also developed ulnar neuropathy and my rotator cuffs are bad. I have tingling, numbess, pins and needles in my left hand pretty much all the time. What they cannot figure out is why I have pain from my shoulder down to my hand. They say it is not caused from my neck.
