Discussions that mention pyridium

Kidney Disorders board


Hi all...this is my first time posting on the kidney board, but I have been reading a lot of your posts, and I find them very helpful. :) Ok, I have had pelvic adhesions/endometriosis for about 11 years, and though my pain is often in the right flank area and right lower back and right pelvic area, I have never been checked for kidney stones or disorders. Lately, I have been experiencing a LOT of pain in my right side/flank, and all in the right pelvic area (sometimes even in my inner right thigh). So, I brought it up to my GYN today, and he mentioned kidney stones and scheduled an IVP for Wednesday, along with ultrasounds of the pelvic area and abdomen.

My questions:
1. Has anyone ever experienced burning in a kidney? I burn TERRIBLY in my right kidney after taking Pyridium, and sometimes after taking other meds, like Imodium. It burns so badly that it hurts to take a deep breath.
2. Can you feel a kidney stone in the sacral area or in the muscle above your kidney?
3. Is it normal for kidney stone pain to come and go in its severity?

Thank you for your time, and may God bless you ALL.
