Kidney Stones (Definition)

Seriously- renal stones are the result of postive and negatively charged particles in urine binding together and precipitating as solids- most frequently as calcium- oxalate.

Just got diagnosed with kidney stones was just wondering what would be the best posture to sleep and be comfortable while I sleep..

Various: There is no "best" position. It will vary depending upon the location of the stone and your body's response to these positions from a comfort standpoint. I assume you are on an alpha stimulating agent like Hytrin (terazosin) as well as whatever pain relief you need. and plenty of fluid intake. ...Read more

I m suffering nocturnal urination all the time. I urinate for every 15mints before sleep. Is this due to my kidney stone or something else?

I m suffering nocturnal urination all the time. I urinate for every 15mints before sleep. Is this due to my kidney stone or something else?

Check with your doc: This may be from too much fluid. Most importantly, once you sleep you wake up to urinate? If so see your doc asap, this may be serious, such as high sugar. If you sleep through without urination you have probably something not serious. Stones cause pain and usually not urination. Hopefully your doc will find everything normal. Good luck. ...Read more

Every morning i feel dizzy and sometimes having difficulty in sleeping. Is it also the effect of kidney stone?

Probably not: Kidney stones can be very painful if small and attempting to pass from kidney into ureter heading down to urinary bladder. They dont make someone dizzy. They can keep someone from sleeping due to the pain. The pain can cause patient to double over and can be felt in the flank/back all the way down to the groin if the stone attempts to move down the urinary tract system. ...Read more

See your physician.: Unfortunately, renal colic from kidney stones can cause pain, nausea, cold sweats, vomiting and urinary discomfort. It is very important, however, to make sure you don't have a urinary tract infection with obstruction by a stone. Such an infection could progress rapidly and even lead to kidney damage. See your physician for an exam and some urine testing. Good luck to you. ...Read more

See Doctor: If you are "sure" it all stems from your unpassed stone, you could see a urologist, but this sounds non-descript enough to suggest going to a generalist first for exam/history, then labs/urinalysis, and possibly imaging study to see what is going on. ...Read more
