Specializes in Diagnostic Radiology

UTI: You have symptoms of uti AND headaches and dizziness or you are considering those symptoms of UTI? An obstructing stone does put you at increased risk of UTI and complications of UTI so if you are running fever you do need to be seen quickly.

Kidney infection: The stone that is blocking the ureter causes kidney swelling. This could now also be a kidney infected with bacteria. The tests needed now are : blood count , urine test and renal CT scan.
