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

BO under left armpit only. discomfort under both. left kidney pain comes and goes. green urine. sharp pain in lower left  abdomen. night sweats. what?

Green urine & sweats: This constellation of symptoms should be checked out by a doctor. I'm concerned u may have malaria and that green urine is actually broken up blood cells from the malaria parasites. Sweats and body aches can be found in malaria and this disease should be looked for. In Pakistan it is rainy season now- right? It could be other diseases too--but hope u get help as soon as possible. ...Read more

My child has severe pain in the area of kidneys, abnormal bruises, headaches, night sweats, and white blood count is 4.2 and neutrophils is 1.2, help?

See a doctor soon: Without more information, it is impossible to tell what is wrong - but your child needs to see a doctor soon (within the next few days) to exclude a potentially dangerous disease. Your doctor will likely start by examining your child and repeating the blood counts to make sure that other blood cells are normal. More studies may bee needed to determine how to best help your child. ...Read more

Sweating At Night (Definition)

Night sweats may be a sign of an overactive thyroid, vitamin d deficiency, or a more serious problem like hodgkin's disease. The most common cause is probably just a heavy mattress and a warm room. The result is the same: waking up overheated and sweaty. Some people have a problem with sweating not just at night. ...Read more
