Yes indeed stones can grow very quickly. However they are strange symptoms. Please go to
there is a great doc there who will have your answers his name is David Goldfarb he is in NY. Please check it out you will be happy you did I promise. OHHH and DRINK DRINK DRINK force all the water you can in a day. TC Cara
Thank you for the advice on where to go and who to talk to. All I drink is water and tea also as it is because I'm diabetic. Once in a great while I will drink a diet soda. I don't understand the going numb part either. It is weird and have never had it happen before. Once again thanks for your response. Anna
Tea can be very bad for some stone compositions like oxalate (which is in most cases always a component). I think you will get much help from Doctor. G at the other forum. Please do post to him and if you have trouble finding it let me know. Keep me posted and let me know how your doing. Fell better soon :) Cara
I signed up for the forum but can't post yet. Waiting for them to authorize my account so I can. I did the email comformation so I don't know what else to do on my part. Just have to wait I guess. I will keep you posted on what I find out. I know they have like a buddy list thing on there.. My name on there is the same as here Anna1979, add me if you can. Talk to you soon. :) Anna
OK I will e-mail the guy that runs it and see if he can put a rush on it. I think you can still read the posts there without being a member... Correct? How are you feeling now? Please post and let me know. Cara
PS you will be very happy that you joined that forum. Doc.G is GREAT.
Yes I can still read the posts.. Looked through quite a few of them and haven't found anything similar to mine (with the numbness). Just have to wait it out and see. And he does seem to be a great guy. He is nice and respectful in all the answers I had read. And thanks for getting ahold of the person that runs it for me. Very much appreciated. Talk to you soon. Anna
Did they reply yet? I sent 2 e-mails. OK you state you are diabetic, did you know the two most common causes of Kidney Disease are 1) Diabetes 1) HBP???? It is called "Diabetic Kidney Disease".
Most Kidney Diseases attack the nephrons causing them to loose their filtering capacity. Damage to the nephrons can happen very fastly often due to posioning (even OTC meds) or trauma. But thegood news for you is... most Kidney Diseases destroy the nephrons SLOWLY and silently. I am sure you are keeping your Diabetes under control with meds. sooo we have to wait and see what the doc. says.
Now don't get alarmed because we really don't know yet why you have the numbness. Have you had any disk or back injuries?? Do you have a Kidney doc??? Cara
No reply yet from the forum. I haven't had any disk or back injuries and the doctor I see is a D.O. at a family practice. He is really good though and really checks into things when I have problems. As far as my diabetes goes... I take insulin and do have it under control. I'm hoping I can post on that forum before I have to go the docs. I would really like to know what I should have him check for or what tests to have him do and possibly an idea of what it might be. I will keep you posted. Have to go for now have a bday party to go to. Anna
You better re-sign. I signed under a different e-mail today and the link is already in my mail??? Go back and do it over something is wong......................cara
I got the activation email and I did it. I also opened another account and tried that and it did the same thing. It says:
1.Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
2.If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
I have to wait for them to activate it. And they haven't done it yet. I'm just trying to post a new thread in the ask the medical panel so I can tell him what is going on and see what he says. I don't know what else to do. I've even emailed them myself about activating it and they haven't. I haven't even got an email back. I don't know what else to do. I'm going to try emailing them again and see if I get a response. Talk to you later.
