We have a water brand in Morocco called sidi hrazem when u warm it and drink it helps with kidney stones
I have had several kidney stones. sjogren's syndrome has caused me to develop renal tubular acidosis which causes kidney stones.
What do you do for it
I had kidneys in both kidneys in the past. They required three surgeries. The pain is awful! I would drink more water. use heat when possible and hopefully they will pass soon!*hugs* I had a stone stuck in my ureter which required surgery. I had lithotripsy to break up the stones and a third surgery to get a stone fragment out of my right kidney.
Omg!!!....I went through this hard process early this year.
I'm sorry you went through it too Gaitan!*hugs*
Etsuko that was a very hard time....I had like 3 surgeries in 3 mos.....I was so down....how could a stone so small hurt so bad.
What I found even worse was the stents they put in after surgery. I would Gaitan blood with the stents and have horrible cramping. I'm sorry you went through 3 surgeries so close together!*hugs*
Etsuko the stents are the worst.
My bladder hurts down low is all.
Sometimes I get azo urinary pain relief from the pharmacy, it is over the counter.
It could be the stones irritating it. I know for UTIs drinking cranberry juice helps me.
Cranberry can promote stones actually.
Sorry I wasn't aware of that. Sorry I couldn't be any help.
Yes. Chronic. Stonebreaker seems to work on some of my stones.
What is stone breaker?
It's Chanca Piedra. All natural. You can buy it in capsule or liquid form and it's call Stonebreaker. I've done both forms. The liquid eliminated a 4 by 7 stone. It was painless. The repeat CT showed it GONE. Urologist was amazed.
lisha i bought some today at the Health food store. I started taking it. How long did it take?
My bottle of Stonebreaker was only $11.00 at Central Market. Most health food stores will have it.
Three doses and it was gone. No pain. It did move my guts a bit though. A good detox I guess.
The liquid tasted like celery and alchohol. I followed it with a can of V8 and that helped the taste.
I took two doses so far.
It's pill form.
Good deal. I hope it works for you. I've had success with it twice. Once I had to do lithrotripsy because there was just no relief and it moved fast and there was too much pain. The two stones that just moved and then stopped for a while gave me time to treat with Stonebreaker.
I have DRTA and that means I am prone to get stones. I've read this goes along with Sjogren's.
Do you think the liquid works better?
It did for me. The taste is horrible though. My stones are 4-7 mm
I may go to Whole Foods tomorrow and see if they have the liquid. So done with this!!
lisha yes sjogrens causes it
Yes been and issue for 15 years now. Last scan I think I still had 6 or 7 floating around. Good luck!!!!!
Have you ever had to have surgery?
I've had lithotripsy
I can't have that since one is low almost in my bladder
That's where my last one was stuck and I just had to wait it out. They finally gave me flomax once i was able to keep pills down and within hours it dropped into my bladder thankfully.
santa i have flowmax. I'll take some tomorrow. I worked all day yesterday in pain. Still have groin and bladder pain.
Id be taking it asap! Worth a shot.
You're brave! That pain.... ugh.
I've had lithrotripsy. It was not bad at all. I had a uteroscopy with stents placed and that was very painful until the doc removed the stents.
Why would they do something to cause more pain? How long did you have to have the stents?
I can't have lithotripsy since it's near my bladder now.
I have a stone that won’t pass
Topamax can cause stones
