Get it checked out sooner rather than later.
Don't know why my previous posted isn't here but . . .
Jeeeeeezzzzzz. . . just what you needed (NOT).
another friggin sx.
i don't know anything about painful kidneys but I would say get it checked out ASAP.
The only thing I might add is that just before I reduced the Riga, I had two occasions where my kidney on the left side started cramping bad and the urination was very heavy and sank to the bottom, no blood that I could tell but it had cleared up later in the day on both occasions. Might be something to watch out for if you’re having pain.
Back in 2003/2004 when I was treated with SOC Pegasys I was also under the care of a Nephrologist (kidney doc) and a very good one. I have had a bit of kidney trouble earlier so I went to him to make sure the TX didn't wreck my kidneys, Didn't hurt them a bit.
Months after the TX he told me that my kidney troubles were "in remission:" and that I didn't need to see a kidney doc any more.
Drink lots of water, that should help.
Then again, could be making some stones, not good. Hope everything works out.
I had some kidney pain when my water intake dropped, I drank water back up to the normal level fot tx'rs and the pain went away.
To All, don't forget your water, like I did.
was reading a thread here about ativan, and some other drugs, ativan in particular, (I take .5 mil once in a great while if I can't sleep for days) is metabolized though the kidneys (not all of them are) so it said to drink lots of water w/ it, and avoid it altogether if you have kidney problems...don't know if youre taking that particular drug along w/ treatment (some people are), and you prob aren't, just a thought...hope you get it resolved...course a doc would know a whole lot more then I....
Hello all, I am 23, was diagnosed with HCV about 4 years ago in jail, i believe either from IV or tattoo equip. :( Im just recently beginning to accept that i cant live the way i used to, and stay healthy, so im basically wondering what the hell to do. I have no insurance, dont drink that much (a few beers a day) and am currently within the last few days experiencing HORRIBLE kidney pains. Can anyone offer me some advice as to what this could be? Because i am not on any medication as of yet, so im not sure what could be causing this.
