kidney stones over a year.

Hay doc. I've been getting stones for the past year . First time was may 7th 2012. I'm not to sure if I still have any but do your kidneys scare after one comes out?. I cant sit still for more then 5 mins. I'm 19. Ever since I had the first stone nearly every morning I feel sick. Sore tummie, head ack, dizzy. Could that be apart of my kidneys. ? Or am I just paranode

Hello there,
Sore tummy, headaches and dizziness can be due to many causes like anxiety, gastritis,food intolerance, stress etc.Kidney stones will cause symptoms like burning urination,haematuria,pain in flanks and there may also be fever at times. It is suggested to take light food .Avoid fried spicy foods. Drink plenty of water and avoid stress. If the symptoms are severe and persistent a clinical examination may be necessary. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. Keep me posted.
Best luck and regards!

Kidney stones can be or are caused by too much calcium and lack of Magnesium> Since you are researching. I'd like to direct you to Search Magnesium and kidney stones. This is one sign of lack of Mg, also included is anxiety and hundreds more., Dr Carolyn Dean's book is amazing. "The Magnesium Miracle.". It will help you understand your symptoms and have instructions what to take and how much,and you will be amazed at what problems lack of Mg can cause. Youtube is another good source for searching on Magnesium, several clinicians have recorded reports and findings. Also make sure to take note of oral magnesium replacement and transdermal Mg at the same time. Oral Mg takes 6 to 12 months before it would build up enough in your system, while transdermal Mg will work instantly but you have to spray it on frequently. I got used to it. I use both but oral replacement is much simpler eventually. I have put my whole household, friends and family on Mg supplementation. You probably will end up doing the same once you do your research. Its best to get the books too. They have further info that won't be on line nor on Youtube.  
The other book is "Transdermal Magnesium" by Dr. Mark Sircus... with instructions on how to use it , He is also on Youtube.
Good health and good luck.

Before you assume your kidney stone production is based on a magnesium deficiency, you need to have your labs and stone analized. An IVP of your kidney will help determine if you don't have a "sponge kidney".Medullary Sponge kidney is an anatomical defect in the kidney which produces multiple kidney stones within pockets of the kidneys. No amount of Magnesium will resolve that. So I wouldn't go messing with your chemistry until you know why. I have MSK and have passed 30+ stones, and as magnesium is a good blocker to help the formation, if it is MSK, you'll need to do more then take a pill. There are MSK support groups as well. Good luck. May I also suggest having a pain management kit( meds, contact person, ect) set up prior. Good luck.
