Why Does My Kidney Hurt When I Run
Running and Kidneys:
it is well known that running can cause jostling or other trauma to your internal organs. This is experienced as some bleeding seen in the urine and pain deep in the mid back.
I would first want to know where you pain is. And, what other symptoms you are experiencing. Have you had this problem previously.

The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more
Someone bumps into me when I was running yesterday, my lower back hurts a lot after that. Could it be my kidney was damaged?
No: Usually requires a fairly significant blunt force to the flank or mid back region to cause an injury to the kidney such as might occur during a severe fall, car accident, or hard contact sports. Significant kidney injury often associated with outward skin bruising overlying the kidneys and blood in the urine. Most likely, you sustained a sprain or strain to your back muscles which can be painful. ...Read more

My lower back always seems to hurt when I run for a long period. Why is that? What should I do? Do I need more flexibility in my lower back?
Low back: This could be due to faulty technique and/or inadequate low back structure or anatomy. If it's the former, a running coach could evaluate, advise, and train you as well as counsel you on proper footwear. If it's the latter, an orthopedic surgeon could diagnose the problem and prescribe proper therapy. ...Read more

Shoes: It could be that your shoes are not providing enough padding and shock absorption. If your shoes are old, try replacing them with a newer pair of running shoes. Try running on a dirt path or in the grass instead of hard pavement if possible and see if this helps with your pain. Also, may be wise to do some stretches before running and see if this helps. Lastly, drink lots of water. ...Read more
2+ possibilities: Multiple possibilities: one, pain from an irritated intervertebral disk (such as one with a small tear) can increase after repetitive impact exercise such as running. A less common cause and sometimes related to disk pain is a postural issue, such as if a runner has a hyperlordotic (increased low back) curve, creating a mechanical cause for pain. Rarely, slippage of vertebrae can be a cause. ...Read more

My lower back hurts only when I run long distances. I am only 23 and I was wondering what I should do?
Lumbago: Running on hard surfaces is like jack knifing on the spine. Specially if you also do weight lifting, will destroy lower back. That is why you never see on the olympic tem a weight lifter after age 24. If you do not do weight lifting, check your uric acid to be bellow 6.0. I am seeing a lot of young people with elevated uric acid, which I did not see before. ...Read more

See a doctor.: You should be examined by your doctor to try to determine the cause and make sure your exam is normal and there is no evidence of any neurological problem.

I have two herniated discs in my lower back which when they hurt I feel the pain run to my stomach is that normal?? Also makes my legs hurt
Herniated discs: Herniated discs cause compression of nerves. Tears in the discs (annular tears) can mimic a herniated disc. When the low back (lumbar spine) is involved, the pain radiates into the legs. Pain to the abdomen is usually a herniated disc in the thoracic spine or there is another reason for the pain. ...Read more
1st I was having pain in shin toe an knee now lower back an both hips an legs hurt like achey pain wat could it be? Osteoporosis run in family an arth
Well, you are pretty: Young to have pain from degenerative arthritis; also young for osteoporosis (though that doesn't typically cause pain). I would pursue a metabolic or rheumatologic cause: deficient vitamin D or magnesium, anemia/iron deficiency. Or perhaps a systemic inflammatory process: post-infectious arthritis/arthralgia, ankylosing spondylitis, rheumatoid arthritis?? Need careful physical/laboratory eval:) ...Read more
Unlikely kidney pain: I highly doubt that your pain is coming from your kidneys. It is more likely that you are having musculoskeletal pain in the lower back or lower abdomen. I would suggest that you start by seeing your PCP (primary care physician) who can check your urine for any evidence of microscopic blood or protein. ...Read more

I take atirejection med for a kidney, but for the first time in 6yrs I have run out. How long before this is a huge issue? I have only missed one dose so far. My insurance has been terminated and I am unemployed. I'm not sure what to do. Any thoughts?
Noncompliance: Noncompliance with taking anti-rejection medications is one of the leading causes of kidney transplantation rejection and kidney failure. It is important that you call your nephrologist and ask him for direction. Perhaps he/she can connect you with an agency to obtain these medications in the interim. It is crucial that you restart these medications asap. Kidney failure could occur sooner or later, but may be inevitable if you do not get access to these medications. In the meantime, live an impeccably healthy lifestyle and protect your body and kidneys from unneccessary toxins, eat nutritious foods, excercise and do not drink alcohol or smoke tobacco. ...Read more

I had kidney \u0026 blatter infection was on meds for 11days and running fevers \u0026 pain the whole time. Now im off and runing fevers again/still?
Kidney infection: Kidney infection (pyelonephritis) generally causes fever, chills and very significant flank pain. One generally feels "sick". Bladder infection (cystitis) rarely causes systemic symptoms. Discomfort in the pelvic area and irritative voiding symptoms are typical. If you feel like running, I seriously doubt that you have a "kidney" infection. Shouldn't cause a problem with a bladder infection. ...Read more
I feel kidney pain when I run or walk for more distance. What does it mean? Any problem or any nutrition diffisiensy
Not likely: Most likely it is a musculoskeletal disorder. Have a physician check it out. It could also be a kidney stone, among other things. In my experience, most common deficiency---by far-- is good ole h2o. Many people walk around in a sub clinical state of dehydration, no feeling of thirst, but get headaches, muscle aches, fatigue etc. Start with at 6-8 glasses of water, fruit juices. If no help, doc. ...Read more
