| | Gallbladder or Kidney Stones?? Please HELP
hi everyone-sorry this is so long....i'm just really frustrated!!
here is my problem:
i am a 29 year old female and i have been feeling really rotten for about 1 month now. ended up in the ER about 3 weeks ago with severe pain in my abdomen and nausea. they did a CT scan which came back positive for kidney stones. there are three of them. i was given a strainer to use and pain medicine. NOW my issue is: i have had a low-grade fever (99.5-100.0) for about 2 weeks with continuing abdomen pain. haven't seen the stones yet. my doctor put me on Cipro for a week...which didn't work and now i'm taking Levaquin...which i can't tell if it is working. my nausea is mainly after eating....about 2 hours afterwards....and severe RUQ pain that comes and goes right after eating. which i guess these are all symptoms of gallbladder problems so he sent me for an ultrasound and HIDA scan yesterday. during the HIDA scan i had severe pain and nausea (a recreation of my normal pain). the results came back with no gallbladder stones and my gallbladder emptied at 39%. they told me that is normal or that 30% and above is normal. she did say that the ultrasound showed a kidney stone....which i already knew.
my question is: can a kidney stone cause the exact symptoms of a gallbladder problem? do you normally have a fever with gallbladder problems or kidney stones?
i apologize for this being so long....i'm just in tears b/c i'm sick and tired of being sick and tired!!
i really value ya'lls opinion and look forward to your replies.
