A little TMI...

So last week about 3am I wake up in pain.  At first I thought it was a stomach ache or food poisioning.  But it was more in my groin area and on my side.  This happened on the weekend, and I wasn't going to go the hospital.  I called the advice line and they recommended me to take some ibprofen and use a heat pad.  I made an appointment with my dr the next day.  By then I had felt much better but still went in to get checked out.  Had a urine test done and nothing came up bad.  We thought maybe kidney stones but he said I would have been more in pain for a longer period of time. For a day or two after I had the urge to urinate quite often.  Annoying more than anything.  That went away after drinking more water and stayed away from soda/caffine drinks.

Been fine until tonight.  The pain is back and now instead of my side, it's in my back.  The urge of urinating is in full force and is keeping me awake.  I've had some family issues going on that is stressing me out.  That can cause these symptoms, however when it first happened last week, I wasn't stressed.

I'm hoping to try to get some sleep but it's been impossible so far.  I'm hoping to get another appointment to see the doc again.  I'm hoping he can prescribe something that well remove the feeling of always having to piss even though I don't need to.  Is there something I can take OTC?

The first time I had kidney stones went exactly the same way you just described your symptoms. Went "away", the came back in full force later. I think that feeling to piss is a urine tract infection. Which I also had due to the stones. I don't know though, I'm not a doc, just been there before smile

In terms of OTC remedies, most will wind up suggesting Ibuprofin, but nothing geared specifically toward your ailments.  Have you considered seeing a specialist or at least someone more specialized than your primary care physician (assuming that's who you originally visited)?  Perhaps a trip to the urologist is in order.  Granted, this is all speculation and mere suggestion, but sometimes primary care physicians can diagnose up to a certain point but then a specialist is necessary, especially in cases when symptoms persist without a definitive diagnosis from your physician. 

It sounds like the problem is associated with your urinary system, hence the urologist suggestion.  Unfortunately you're left waiting to visit your doctor and then may have to wait even longer to see a specialist, but perhaps your doctor could prescribe something more effective for pain mitigation, such as vicodin or something of the like?  Granted, it'll make you a bit loopy and impact your ability to work, drive, etc, but odds are the pain and discomfort is doing that already, negating much productivity to begin with.

Ultimately your doctor(s) will have to make the determination as we're just regular folk who occasionally play doctor on the interweb.   icon_wink  Good luck.  Kidney stones absolutely terrify me, so here's to hoping it's something far less severe requiring no more than antibiotics and perhaps a few minor painkillers.

I had a kidney stone a few months ago and your symtoms sound like exactly what I had.

I didn't think stones when it was happening because everyone I had ever talked to that said they had kidney stones they said the pain was unbearable.  So what I was having was not unbearable but more of a dull pain like i had been hit in the groin.

Then once I took myself to the ER, I had this none stop urge to take a dump.  The strangest feeling I have ever had in my life because it was so uncomfortable and frustrating to keep getting up to go to the bathroom and not be able to.

They took an Xray and the doctor came in and said classic symptoms for kidney stone.  After pain meds and fluids sent me home and I got lucky by passing it a few hours later with no pain.

I am not a doctor by any means but everything you mentioned sounds exactly what happened to me.

In the mean time start drinking plenty of water.

Yea....the difference between what your feeling and kidney stone symptoms, AFAIK, is not having the urge to dump, but cant.
I've had plenty of stones, and not once has the urge to pee been present., but backaches along with the pressure of feeling like a dump is coming on happens every time.

went to see the dr this morning and had another urine test and this time they did an x-ray on my abdomen.  Xray-s didn't show any stones so that's good.  Urine test showed I had blood in it and higher level of protein.  I asked if that could be something related to my prostate.  He said it could be.  I asked if it's an infection and he said more than likely it is.  So he gave me some antibiotics to help fight that, and it helps with the urge to piss to go away, so far so good! 

If I still have any issues I guess we move on to the prostate.

Having some issues at home which is making me very stressed out so I'm that's not helping either

Just a heads up, my doc said that X-rays are sort of pointless for detecting smaller stones. I went to the hospital and they X-rayed; showed no stones. After a CAT scan they saw a few tiny stones.

well I'll guess I'll find out for sure at some point if this keeps going.  The antibiotics is working quite well, no longer have the urge to take a piss.  I took a ibprofen tonight and probably didn't need to, but I need my sleep.  The last two nights have sucked, and I have a huge project this week and I need to be alert.

Well hopefully it's not stones and just a minor infection. I wouldn't wish that on anyone, get better!

My sister in law had kidney stones and I suggested a youtube video from a guy who uses lemon juice to soften and to release the stones from his kidneys. My sister in law said he did get relief trying this. You might try this after your antibiotics have been used up if the pain comes back. Hope you get well soon Ken.

I had stones. The symptoms aren't hard-fast. I'm glad you're feeling better.

Also, this thread title made me think it was a support group for masturbators anonymous.
Oddly enough, it was listed right below "[Wii] Legend of Zelda: The Skyward Sword" just a moment ago. Tongue
