What to do if you have kidney stones and an allergy to NSAIDs?
Apparently, I have uric acid kidney stones - can't see them on xray, but have sterile pyuria and flank/back pain. Also, I've had these for several months. Due to a Roux-en-Y gastric bypass I'm now not allowed to take NSAIDs (it's just easier to say "allergic") due to ulcer risks in blind pouch. SO, what are your remedies? I'm tired of the discomfort!
Maybe you could ask a Health Care Provider about what you could take for the pain. A professional Health Care provider should know. Your doctor should know what to do or maybe another doctor would know.
I work for a company of Drs - his solution was..."errr...NSAIDs are the only thing that works, if it is kidney stones..let me think". HE's a really nice guy, and a good dr - I'm just a difficult case! Can't have a CT cause we are trying to get preg
Apple Cider Vinegar can help, in small doses add to water not too much though its highly acidic and doesn't taste nice.
First things first. Eliminate whatever you're eating with a high euric acid conten if you can. Processed meats and ham being my bugaboo's. Second, try a smokin hot bath at the onset of the pain if you can manage it. Tylenol could help too since I guess you cannot have Advil. Finally the kicker. Water. Drink plenty of it and don't get dehydrated. Water Water Water. Constantly keep moving and diluting those euric acid devils. Good luck
Go back and get proper pain relief recommendations/prescription from your doctor! That's part of proper medical care--making sure patients aren't in pain. I've had kidney stones--that's seriously painful for most people, no matter how small the stone. You deserve a pain-free or at least pain-less life.
Also, you might enquire about the possibility of breaking down those stones with a sonic bath, so that they pass. (sorry, I barely remember the details of this so take the following with a grain of salt.) I was told (by a former boss) that this process has you in a special bathtub that they then send sonic shock waves through and somehow this breaks down the stones. He did say it hurt, but not nearly as much as having the stones did. I think he required 2-3 treatments before all the stones were gone.
Don't take chances with medical issues as serious as this one by relying on advice from just anyone. Get advice from a doctor. If you can't afford it, help is readily available. It sounds like you are in the care of a doctor. What advice have you been given?
If you have a compound pharmacy in your neighborhood, they would be able to make you up a non-NSAID compound that is a combination of natural ingredients, that specifically deal with the kidney and high Uric acid levels. Also a pain specialist physician, can also direct the same compounding pharmacist to make a topical formulation, that is site specific to where you are feeling the pain.
These types of topical or trans dermal's if you will, totally bypass the liver and the G.I. Tract, without causing a great deal of side-effects, as an NSAID often can. However you will still need the pain doc. To order this script for your current issue. Also try some natural straight cranberry juice, that you will find in a health food store. Good luck to you and hope you feel better real soon!
I just wrote a hub on kidney stone natural remedies actually. I have them too, although mine are calcium oxylate stones. I started taking the herb Chanca Piedra which works very well for me. It has dissolved my larger stone I had and there was no pain in passing it.
I know with uric acid stones if you drink a little beer it can help. (a little being the key word here lol) Also, there are dietary things you should consider and if you are able to do it, try doing a kidney cleanse.
For pain, you can try acetominophen (Tylenol) but it doesn't really work that well. I'd go for the Chanca Piedra and cut meat and dairy out of your diet for awhile.
Some of it may be genetic I believe. I'm not a doctor but I play one on the internet and I swear it's genetic. My Dad had them and so did his Dad.
Thanks Christin - Tylenol is paracetamol in NZ, and have been using that on and off. Damn, don't drink beer (it's NASTY). Iwill have to have a look at this hub!
possibly some genetics, more I think the lifestyle habits that cause them are learned and passed on. Natural remedies that have been used for centuries often trump today's medicines Read and experiment.
