Signs And Symptoms Of Kidney Stones?
Afternoon .. My name is Steffhy, I am 22 years old. Complaints since 2 weeks ago I often have abdominal pain in the lower left, if it’s too long the pain can spread to the back, to be precise, the lower left side of the waist, calves, groin, thighs are also sick, often suddenly have a fever, every morning and evening nausea, vomiting, fatigue, decreased appetite, frequent headaches, difficulty sleeping because my left stomach hurts. Last week, I went to a doctor but a general practitioner, he said that if the lower left abdominal pain was related to the urinary tract, and if it spreads backward he said it could affect the kidneys. Previously, I had left abdominal pain, 2 times, last year. It’s just a pain in the lower left abdomen, but now it’s recurring again to the back of the waist pain. The doctor already gave me a prescription for pain relief, but there was not the slightest loss of pain. If you often walk the same thing for too long standing, the pain will get worse. I just happened to be in SC 6 months ago.
Kidney stones or nephrolithiasis is a urinary tract disorder in the form of stone formation in the kidneys. The kidneys function to filter the blood and then remove the waste products of the body's metabolism in the form of urine / urine. Symptoms of kidney stone disease are as follows:
Renal colic. Severe pain that is usually felt in the waist, pain can appear suddenly and greatly interfere with activities. Pain can radiate to the thigh or groin. Pain is not affected by activity. Urinating blood, urine that comes out is red or normal but the urine lab examination shows the presence of blood (microscopic). Pain when urinating, feeling anyang-anyangan / already urinating but not feeling complete. Nausea and vomiting Treatment of kidney stones can be done by administering pain relievers for both the NSAID and the morphine group (prescribed by a doctor only). Pain in renal colic usually requires a higher class pain reliever, which is sometimes combined with spasmolytic drugs. If the small stone size <5 mm is still expected to come out on its own. However, large stone sizes can only be treated with surgery or stone crushing (ESWL, percutaneous lithotripsy, etc.).
Cesarean section (SC) surgery can cause prolonged abdominal pain in some people. This can occur as:
Myofascial pain syndrome. Chronic pain caused by disturbance in the muscles due to scar tissue that is caused after surgery. The muscles are formed like bands / binders that make the muscles too contracted and tense. Nerve pain, due to irritation of several nerves in the abdominal and pelvic area. Usually the pain you feel is around the surgical wound, the more painful it is when pressed. To reduce chronic pain after SC surgery, there are several things that can be done, including:
Do light exercise / stretching or gymnastics to train your pelvic muscles regularly. Maintain ideal body weight Following relaxation therapy Reduce the activity of lifting heavy objects, pushing too hard If the pain is severe and interferes with activities, you should immediately see a doctor. Treatment to reduce pain, for example by acupuncture, nerve blocks, giving electrical stimulation, or surgery. That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it's useful.
