shakehead  Woke up around 4am with shooting sharp pain down the right flank of my back, across the hip and down in the groin.  No sign of infection. No fever, no burning, no itching.  No nausea or vomiting (yet).  rolleyes Not muscular cause heatin' pad didn't help and percocet only took the edge off.  Would have gone for a CT scan at the ER & a shot of demerol, delaudid last night if our ER would run a CT scan with contrast without having a standing order! mad   So I held out and called the PCP instead of my urologist cause the PCP has imaging capabilities.  smhair Don't have a history of kidney stones, however, I do have gall stones.  Same difference, different location?  What's your take on all this?  Please respond ASAP...cause this pain has GOT to go! cry

Sounds somewhat like a stone but if your kidney is blocked you should start feeling a heavy feeling in your back on the side that the kidney is on. You should also feel like you really really need to go , but little or nothing comes out. If the pain continues I would visit my doc or ER. Hope you feel better.....

Thanks Sniper...I meant Matthew (Stone King) however, I guess the title is officially yours now! I know you two have been vying for the prestige!

Actually I gave it some more thought today and I'm wondering if it could also be a partial scar tissue obstruction from a prior stent and placement of nephrostomy bag I had before my resection two years ago. The colic lasted about 2 hours and I'm really sore now but not rolling around in pain. The bag was a result of what was deemed a crohn's cyst on my ovary which was a whopping 4cm and removed during the resect. Could be I've grown another one of those and it's blocking the ureter too. At any rate my PCP scheduled me for a UT scan on Friday afternoon. Hope I don't have another episode before then. Also, I didn't realize that they don't use contrast on CT scans when they are checking for "just stones" because they won't show up. I just know if the pain starts again I'm going for the morphine or other candy the ER has no matter what my pocketbook says! Thanks for the help!

Glad your feeling better now and also that you are going get checked out. Stones are no fun but pain is pain no matter what is causing it. Hope all gets put right soon..

broomhilda,

Please keep your appointment even if you are feeling better. Twelve years prior to my crohn's dx, I suffered from hydronepherosis, and was told I had autoimmune disorder. There is an association between this condition, crohn's and reactive forms of arthritis being studied at the current time. You can search and research this on the web. Good luck to you.


Crohn's for life, symptoms included terrable joint and soft tissue pain, just met first cousin who suffers from Reiters-explains sooo much. Great control on SCD (when I'm good) and I get by with a lotta help from my friends!

Sometimes a stone will move along some, causing the pain to stop, then get lodged again, leading to a second attack. So do keep your appointment to be sure. What you describe does sound a lot like a possible stone. From my own experience with one, and from what I have heard, one key sign is that if the pain is so severe that you cannot sit still and find yourself pacing up and down, it's likely a stone.
