For the past 5ish weeks ive been getting some strange pains in my side/back area where i presume my right kidney would be and its starting to worry me now cus im getting it most days, i did a bit of googling (not too much tho as i dont want to worry myself sick) and have read that kidney stones and other kidney problems are quite comman in pregnancy.......?
Has anyone had this?
and if i do have a kidney problem do i go to the midwife about it or my regular gp?
any help or advice would be appreciated, thanks
Hi I'm not pg just nosing lol but think I can help
When I was about 22 I had a severe kidney
Infection hospitalised for a week was so bad
But first thing dr asked me was if I was pg
After telling him there was no physical way lol
They still did a test anyway as can be very common in pregnancy
ok hun,thanks. what were your symtoms? all im really having is this pain in my side/back area, i really doubt the pain is related to the pregnancy at all as its round by my back and the people ive mentioned it to have said thats where your kidney would be.
think ill make a doctors apt tomorro.
Are you drinking enough? Are you going to the loo frequently enough? Try getting some cranberry juice into your diet. I get kidney pains when i dont drink enough or go to the loo as often as i should (when i am at work on a Saturday). Whenever this happens i try to drink lots for the next few days including alot of cranberry juice, could you try that? I think you should see a doctor anyway though to rule things out x
Thanks,i think im drinking enough and going to the loo a decent amount of times,had this pain on and off for weeks now and last night it was more of a constant pain. ive booked an appointment with my gp for tomorro so hoping its nothing bad and it'll sort its self out. thanks for the advice x
