Medication: First rule out a urinary tract infection or bladder inflammation. If no infection, treatment with a medication for overactive bladder may relieve your urgency. Pyridium (phenazopyridine) is sometimes given to relieve painful urination. An orthopedic surgeon should investigate your ongoing back and hip pain looking for hairline fracture, etc. And, if indicated, ordering bone scan, ct scan, mri, etc. ...Read more

Just saw chiro and he said that I might have a bladder irritation/infection in the wall based on my x-ray. I have urinary frequency and urgency. I had kidney stone last year. Cystocope was normal?

Urine culture: I don't think that anyone can diagnose a bladder infection or irritation with a plain xray. A urine culture is needed to make a diagnosis of infection. You may have an overactive bladder syndrome. Your urologist is the best one to diagnose and treat your symptoms. ...Read more

Advice for kidney stone?

Kidney stone.: Kidney stones up to 5mm in size will predictably pass on their own. Just drink plenty of water so you produce a lot of urine, dilate those ureters and allow the stone to pass.
