Urinary Problems/Leg Numbness Kidney??

Hello,

I am a 34 year old female.  I have been experiencing some unusual symptoms, and I can't seem to get a clear answer as to what is going on.  I started having pain when I urinate.  I thought that perhaps it was a UTI.  I ended up in the ER when the pain in my lower back and abdomen started.  After a urine test revealed no UTI, but trace blood, I was sent for CT and my urine and blood sent to lab.  The CT revealed no kidney stones.  My urine had calcium oxade crystals (sp?) in it and my WBC count was up.  The doctor assumed that I had passed a kidney stone and told me to take it easy.  I have since returned home, and have not felt any relief.  The pain has gotten worse.  Now, when I bend down at the waist, cough, or take a wrong step, my legs go numb.  I can feel a pain in my hips that almost feels like a pinched nerve.  I am still having trouble starting and stopping the flow of urine, as it is very painful.  I am going more frequently, in small amounts, as well.  I can't help but think that the numbness (which is what is concerning me the most right now) is somehow associated with the rest of my symptoms.  I am unsure of which doctor to go to.  I would really love some advice, and your opinion on what it may be that I am dealing with.  I really appreciate the help.  Thanks so much.

This pranayam will exercise your internal organs, send extra oxygen to the blood cells and in turn make your systems healthy. Start doing it up to 30 minutes twice a day and let me know how you feel after 4 weeks.Drink plenty of warm water, and avoid cold drinks.
Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute.
Kapalbhati pranayam -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day. Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day.
Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently.
