    Stomach pain, kidney stones??

    Hi! So, every once and a while it is completely random I will get this pain in my stomach. It is to the right of my belly button right outside of where my abs would end.

I do feel a little bump when I push around which does hurt alot and then after I....

    cystoscopy post op - blood in urine

    I was hoping someone could help. Yesterday I had a cystoscopy at the hospital. When I was released they told me to expect light pink blood in the urine for 3 to 5 days.

    Bun/Creatinine ratio high

    So I understand that this often indicates a kidney problem but my bun/creatinine ratio came back at 40 when the normal range is 6-22 and my creatinine came back .48 when Normal is .50-1. Which I know the creatinine isn’t horribly abnormal but paired with bun/creatinine ratio doesn’t seem good. So my question is how bad is a 40? Should I be worried? I have an appointment in a few days but I’m curious about it now

    Random, Sudden Onset, Extreme Fatigue and General Weakness

    Hello, all. I wasn't quite sure where to put this, so kidney disorders it is! I am an eighteen-year old female.

The episodes do not seem to be triggered by anything specific and happen almost any time....
