Dear lybrate-user you exhibit symptoms suggestive of urinary tract infection. You have been evaluated well and thankfully your urinary tract shows no structural abnormality. There is no kidney stone, kidney size and prostate is normal. Urine culture shows signs of infection, hegde you must take antibiotics. Most of the infections occur on acidic urine. So in addition to having more water, you must have a syrup to alkanise the urine. Then burning sensation will resolve. Regards.

Yes with growth it get corrected but will require surgery at a certain age if not improved. Your urologist is the right person to decide the age. Invariably it take place once growth is complete. Till then you have to train you child for pee training. Not to let him accumulate too much urine in bladder so that it back fires. Right now home care and make your child pee every 1 hr irrespective of amount of urine comes out. It will help reduce pressure on bladder and won't let urine go back to kidney. Male child drink more water so that bladder is flushed of any infection. Discuss with urologist home care for such children.

I feel less energetic, very thirsty, and my back has been giving me issues. Also from time to time I have been feeling nauseous. 3 weeks ago I had a strep throat so I was given antibiotics and afterwards I got a yeast infection so I am confused if its side effects from the medicines or its something else. The meds had amoxicillin. And I have no change in my appetite other than I am getting tired so fast and i'd say hungry faster. My bladder habit too has not changed.

Hi, I think before advising you further I need to get a more clearer picture about your symptoms. Including is your sleep cycle disturbed, where did you have yeast infection, your normal appetite. Since your symptoms are a mix of various causes so it is important to know the history in detail, for a proper diagnosis. You can consult me via chat or over a call by scheduling my appointment. Meanwhile I advise you to take iron and folic acid tablets along with vit b complex. These are over the counter medications which will be available without any prescription. But I think it's really important you consult any doctor further so that he may add the necessary medications required for your symptoms.

Hi, I have a pain in my kidney (both sides) and the pain spreads like in front of the kidney and it moves to backside of the body. When the pain stops at in front of the kidney it starts at either the corner part or the back part of the body and it spreads to thigh. This happens gradually after one month. For suppose I have pain now it will be alright after a week and starts again after a month. I have a severe gastric for which I have been taking a treatment. Can this be a kidney stone, uti or any other sickness per my symptoms. Thanks!

Kidney pain and back pain can be difficult to distinguish, but kidney pain is usually deeper and higher in the and back located under the ribs while the muscle pain with common back injury tends to be lower in the back.

A ct scan or mri of the abdomen and pelvis may be ordered. •treatment for the cause of kidney pain depends upon the underlying cause, but in general, ibuprofen (motrin), ketorolac (toradol), and/or acetaminophen (tylenol) are used for pain. Antibiotics are usually required if the underlying cause is bacterial infection. •some people can pass a kidney stone spontaneously that resolves kidney pain; however, other people may need surgery. •kidney pain can be prevented by avoiding those situations that are the underlying causes of kidney infection and/or damage. •the prognosis for someone with kidney pain depends upon the cause, and the majority of patients can have a good outcome when treated quickly and appropriately. Kidney stone symptoms kidney stones form within the kidney or urinary tract. Kidney stones that do not produce symptoms are called "silent" stones. When symptoms do occur, they usually come on suddenly and include excruciating cramping pain in the low back and/or abdomen, side, or groin. Changing body positions does not relive the pain. What are symptoms and signs are associated with kidney pain? Symptoms associated with kidney pain (also termed renal or flank pain) are discomfort (acute or chronic), aches, or sharp pain that occurs in the back between approximately the lowest rib and the buttock. Depending on the cause of the pain, it may radiate down the flank to the groin or toward the abdominal area. Some individuals may develop symptoms and signs such as: •fever •painful urination (dysuria) •blood in the urine •nausea •vomiting •dizziness •constipation or diarrhea •rash •fatigue •chills other signs and symptoms that may occur if the kidney function is increasingly compromised are a •metallic taste in the mouth, •bad breath, •swelling and shortness of breath. Depending on the underlying cause, kidney pain may occur on the left or right side. Sometimes it can occur on both sides of the back; traumatic kidney injury (kidney laceration) may cause the above symptoms, but mild damage may initially have no symptoms. Severe kidney lacerations can cause abnormal blood pressure and pulse, and shock. Kidney pain itself is a symptom that may happen due to problems or diseases of the kidney or its associated structures, including the ureters or bladder. However, other diseases may mimic kidney pain, but are not actually due to the kidneys, for example, •muscle strains in the back, •spinal problems (fracture, abscesses), •rib pain, •pleuritis, •radiculitis, •retroperitoneal fibrosis, •shingles, •aortic abdominal aneurysm, •gynecological problems, and •many other causes. Although kidney pain often occurs on one side of the back, it can occur on both sides at the same time and may radiate toward the abdomen or groin. Pain that occurs suddenly, is sharp, severe, and may increase and decrease in waves is often due kidney stones in the ureters of the kidneys. Pain caused by kidney stones is termed renal colic.

He may have a uti and need to test urine re and culture to decide if antibiotics are needed, you make sure he is mentally calm as the disturbed mind will also make children go to washroom too often.
