What Is Ston
Yes: Cocaine vasoconstricts arteries significantly causing a lack of blood flow. As a consequence the kidney gets less blood flow than usual and it will 'act as though the patient is dehydrated". The urine will be concentrated. This makes it more likely for calcium, phosphate, oxalate, uric acid to 'bump into' the stone that is present. Thus the stone can grow. Why take cocaine? It kills ! ...Read more

When : When someone mentions that "they have lost interest in the things they once enjoyed", it's a big red flag that the person is suffering from depression.

Research shows that people who engage in therapy and medication get better faster and stay better for a longer period of time than either therapy or medication alone. You should call your doctor and discuss your symptoms with them. They may be able to help you, or at least refer you to someone in your area who can help. I added a link to a website with helpful information about depression. There are a few other illnesses that can cause similar symptoms such as hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone) and your doctor may choose to check for this before starting medication. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
