Hi
My best advice is to change your doctor because your condition is serious. at this stage antibiotics have to be given at the earliest to control UTI but carefully because you are pregnant. And hydronephrosis is again bad.
What is your Serum Creatinine and Blood urea levels??

Since early October I have been experiencing pain in the area of my left kidney. I started taking 30 mg of Vyvanse in September. At first I thought it was simply back pain and saw a chiropractor and had massages but after several adjustments the pain continued. I went to my doctor and was told I most likely had kidney stones since they found blood in my urine but I have had a history of blood in my urine since I was 6 (I am now 45). The source of that blood was never discovered although I have had repeated tests over the years. After the pain continued my doctor referred me to a urologist and I have had renal and bladder ultrasounds and ct scans all of which showed no evidence of kidney stones. There is also no evidence of infection. Today my doctor did a cystoscopy and my bladder is fine and my prostrate is slightly enlarged. She stated there was no blood in my urine today but larger than normal amounts of protein. She has referred me to a nephrologist. I am wondering if there has been any evidence of Vyvanse causing kidney pain as it began shortly after beginning to take this drug.

I have a 4 year old daughter who has had problems for the past 2 1/2 years and know can figure out what is wrong with her. Her symptoms started when she was 2 years old and she would cry that her back hurt in her car seat, so we tried 5 different car seats and she still complained. Then it progressed to her back hurting when she would be runnin, playing and sleeping. Now that she is older she can describe her symptoms more detailed. She has a hot sensation in her back and feet, she has parasthesis of bilateral legs and incontinence of urine and stool and belly pain. She is followed by a Neurology, GI, Nephrology, Urology, Nuerosurgery, Orthopedics, Pain service, Pain Psychologist and know can figure out what is wrong. She has had 2 MRI (normal), 2 CT scans (normal), Lasix scan (normal), Nuclear bone scan (normal), VCUG (normal), ultrasounds (hydronephrosis), urodynamic studies ( abnormal- showed multiple bladder spasms), multiple blood test and urine studies ( 2 24 hour urine studies showed high protein and urea 3rd was normal but not 24 hour) and Upper GI showed gastritis. Any ideas??

I have a history of kidney stones. when i went to an urgent care the doctor saw a calcification in my bladder via xray. He also did an ultrasound which showed hydronephrosis. He put me on antibiotics incase I developed an infection. I saw my urologist and had another xray done which showed that the stone was gone. I am still having alot of pain on my right back/side and I am concerned about the hydonephorisis. I don t know if I need to go back to the doctor or if It s just sore because of everything it s been through.
