?hematuria: Sounds more like the Kidney stone issue or some Urogenital tract issue that is most likely causing blood in the urine that you are seeing. Doubt it has anything to do with the Penicillin. See the Dr. to get the hematuria assessed. Best wishes. ...Read more

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. This happens most often when the urine is concentrated- ie when you are dehydrated. And trying to pass these stones from the kidney to the bladder is incredibly painful. ...Read more

Have pain every time i urinate, test negative for infections. I have UTI symptoms, flank pain, history of kidney stones but no blood in urine, help?!

May still be a UTI: Usually, pain on urination (dysuria) is a symptom of a UTI from which the offending bacteria can be grown from the urine. Less commonly dysuria can occur from the irritation of passing a kidney stone alone (i.e. Not a uti). In other situations, the laboratory can't isolate the microbe because it's too difficult to grow in culture (e.g. Chlamydia)- in that case, you may still actually have a uti. ...Read more

Some burning after urination & occasional flank pain 6+wks ago. Ultrasound revealed 5mm kidney stone. No urinary symptoms since. Considering radiation exposure is a CT scan necessary in your opinion?

No: If you are no longer having symptoms and your urinalysis is normal, then I think you already have the information you need. Sometimes a stone is not identified on an ultrasound, and persistent pain or blood in the urine needs to be investigated. Then a CT would be helpful. I am assuming that your ultrasound otherwise revealed normal kidneys, etc. ...Read more

Can kidney stones cause flank pain?

Can kidney stones cause flank pain?

Yes: Flank pain is a common symptom of ureteral stones, which are kidney stones which have "dropped out" of the kidney and entered the ureter, the tube which carries urine to the bladder. Blockage of urine flow causes stretching of the kidney and ureter which is sensed as flank pain, often severe, sometimes radiating to the lower abdomen or groin and causing nausea/vomiting/sweating. ...Read more

Have a bad UTI and woke up with terrible flank pain that stopped suddenly after 2 hours. Kidney stone or should I be worried?

Have a bad UTI and woke up with terrible flank pain that stopped suddenly after 2 hours. Kidney stone or should I be worried?

FLANK-LY SPEAKING: Certainly a stone would be a consideration. Symptoms may also represent the progression of your urinary tract infection; a condition called pyelonephritis or in layman's terms a "kidney infection". If the symptoms have resolved, continue your UTI medication as prescribed. If the symptoms return or worsen, follow up with the Doctor who initiated your treatment. ...Read more
