What feels like kidney pain?

Postby Wackers34 » Thu Dec 12, 2013 9:28 pm

Does anyone else get a dull (sort of tooth ache feeling) in their mid back, like your kidneys are aching? This is the first pain I got last year (dec) and what started all my problems off - I now have it again - it must be a December thing! It really aches - I thought last year it was a kidney infection - but was not the case
It seems to last weeks and is on both sides

I had this ache a few years ago, kept putting it down to the cold , the wind or urine infection, i did on a couple of occasions have an infections, but it dismissed by my GP, then it got worse all of a sudden one morning, and I ended up in a & e , they tested my urine and said to drink plenty and go home and rest, the pain got worse, i called the doctor , tested my wee again, said all was ok ...by the 4 th day I was lying on the floor crying in pain , as the day went by and nearly passing out, i tried to wee and passed a kidney stone, as soon as the stone was out the pain went...i then had this dull ache for months afterwards..at the time my GP did not believe i had passed the stone, so i went to the GUM clinic and the doctor said I had been treated terribly and insisted to my GP that I have a scan, the scan confirmed I had a scar track from my kidney confirming I did indeed pass a stone! i now get this dull ache in the winter, cold, dehydrated or over tired , I was dx with FM in May this year, I was told i have gone un dx for 5 years ...this would include the time i had the stone. Drink plenty , keep warm and rest , if the dull ache continues dont dismiss it, get checked out x :shock:

Yea, a few months ago, I thought it was a kidney/urine infection, it was actually IBS, I could not believe that the doctor told me that's what it was, but took buscopan and it disappeared, now when get it I take peppermint oil capsules and it goes away as quick as it came.

Any new pain, especially severe pain needs to be checked. We can have an issue somewhere but the pain presents itself in a totally different spot..

Expect the worst in life you won't be disapointed and you'll be prepared!
