Kidney or maybe back pains

Postby PakMan1618 » Tue Sep 20, 2005 11:08 pm

Sorry, i lost this thread, so i may have to post it here.
Every since i can remember, i get these kidney pains (i think thats what it is) or its like the left and right side of my back. I get them like once a month or sometimes once every 2 months. I don't know what it is, but it feels like my kidneys are being squished
its on both sides
pain starts off small ( i can tell when its coming)
then it regresses and then eventually stops
i have no idea what this is
if you can help me, or direct me if im in the wrong section to post this in

Do you have any other symptoms that accompany this pain, such as vomiting, fever, difficulty while micturiting or an urgency to micturate?
Also, have you performed a urinalysis by any chance, if not, please have one done.
Best regards,

good day t you dr. ismail. i would like to ask a question about my son. he is 2 years and 5 months old, 3 months ago he had a very high fever and was found out to have urinary tract infection, it was cured, but then last month he had fever again the doctor said he has primary complex, he will be taking medication for 6 months..the other night he had fever again and when his urinalisys result came out he has pus cells of 2-4 hpf. the doctor told me that he needs to drink antibiotic question is, is it ok to take all of these medicines simustaneously in a day : comprilex before breakfast, rifampicin later with an empty stomach, rifampicin after dinner, and in between paracetamol every 4 hours in case of fever and cefalexin every 8 hours for his urinary tract it ok for my son to drink all of these medicines because i am not comfortable with it, im afraid it might have side effects in the near future..thank you very much for your time in reading my post and i will be very grateful if you would respond to my letter..

Hello sahara,
Good day to you too.
I assume your child has TB of the genitourinary tract. Now in that case, the primary aims of treatment are to preserve renal tissue and function, to make the patient noninfectious, and to manage comorbid conditions.
Prescriptions will consist of several special medications that must be taken for 6-9 months. Treatment takes that long because the disease organisms grow very slowly and, unfortunately, also die very slowly.
Doctors use multiple drugs to reduce the likelihood of resistant organisms emerging.
Of course, all drugs have side effects which your doctor will be on the look out for through regular follow up and lab studies.
Best regards,

Dr. Heba Ismail, M.D.
