The Back Around The Waist Aches, Does It Need Kidney Ultrasound?
Good night, I (age 30) have complaints that the back around the waist feels pain, changing position also does not reduce the pain. Seeing my habit of consuming less water, what is the possibility of the pain because of a disturbance in my kidney? In my opinion, the characteristics of my urine do not indicate a dangerous condition, for example bloodless or very foamy, ever the color is rather thick, but not often. And BAK can be 3 or 4 times a day. Check what I need to do? Can you check urine only or do you need kidney ultrasound? Thank you very much for the answer.
Hello Amalia Rizky, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Complaints that you experience at this time can indeed be caused by disorders of the kidney such as kidney stones or urinary tract infections, but can also be caused by other conditions such as:
Muscle tension Squeezed nerves Spinal displacement Ovarian cysts (in women) Because other possible causes aside from kidney disorders are still present, it is strongly recommended to consult your doctor first before you decide on your own to do a supporting examination such as renal ultrasound or examination urine, because you may not need the examination or maybe you need additional tests other than one or both of the tests you are asking about. In addition to determining the possibility of your condition and also what tests you should do, consultation with a doctor also aims to determine what therapy should be given to you.
In the meantime, it is strongly recommended not to carry out the examination on its own decision without consulting first with a doctor. You are also advised to:
Increase consumption of water at least 2 liters (equivalent to 8 glasses) a day, even if later you are not declared to have kidney problems Avoiding the habit of holding urinating (especially for women) Maintaining cleanliness of the pubic area properly For women, clean your pubic area every time after urinating or CHAPTER with cleaning direction from front to back Avoid the use of underpants and tight pants, and make sure they are clean and dry before use Avoid the consumption of drugs without clear advice from the doctor If you have diseases such as high blood pressure or diabetes, be sure to do routine examination and treatment to the doctor so that both conditions are controlled properly. Hopefully this helps.
