    Stoned!!!

    Yeah not that way! I wish.

    I experienced my first debilitating kidney stone while driving to work on Friday. I almost crashed my car, but did managed to get to a Patient First clinic where I begged for pain meds. After almost 45 minutes of bouncing off the walls and saying fuck fuck fuck fuck they came with meds. Urinalysis showed traces of blood in my urine. They gave me some opiates and sent me home. Iíve had the ct scan but wonít know the results till tomorrow at the doctor. They stone hasnít come out but the pain has subsided enough I donít need the pain meds.

    I have never experienced that before. I have broken bones, had stitches and surgeries, but never experienced pain like that. It was throw you to the floor, canít remain still or quiet agonizing pain. I though something in me must have ruptured. Crazy pain.

    Anyone else know this situation? Iím now in fear of reoccurrence. Iím guessing I will be lectured on diet change. Iíve been guzzling water.

    Tell me about kidney stones!

    Never had any issues, knock knock.

    I have had a couple of patients who exhibited your symptoms. Looked fucking excruciating.

    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.

    Stoned!!!

    Yeah, Iíve passed three. Worse than rupturing my patella tendons and worse than rupturing my spleen. Pain is so fucking intense. First time, I pulled over to the side of the road and laid in the grass. Thought I was dying. Last time, I went to the ER and told them I was passing a stone. They got me morphine, stat. Itís no joke. Lay off the chocolate and never get dehydrated.

    Had a few nurses, who had been through both, tell me that kidney stones were way more painful than giving birth.

    Iíve had friends with them. Sounds similarly painful to my gall stones. The look of fear in their eyes describing them is similar to mine. One friend would do handstands to let gravity give him relief. I suppose results may vary. Hopefully they pass. The removal process doesnít sound that appealing unless thatís your thing

    My friend turned me into some protein mix powder. I was drinking a large bottle of it for like six months. That, coupled with an afternoon pot of coffee at the ski shop gave me a stone. I drank a bunch of cranberry juice concentrate and I was clear in about five days. It really sucked.

    Saying that I knew instantly when it passsed is an extreme understatement.

    My experience as well. Actually, the traveling along kidney walls I believe was the real pain. Traveling along it's journey was just general discomfort, but I was on a steady diet of perc's.

    Kidney stones are kind of famous as the worst pain ever. When I had a ruptured appendix, I was writhing around so much the ER folks thought it might be stones until the MRI results.

    Not everyone agrees with me, but I think opiates are tits. Especially when the pain’s going to 11.

    Yeah we were on the 2nd last day of biking the Camino de Santiago and the gf passed a kidney stone

    she said it was more painful than childbirth

    I remember a spanish MD telling us the Camino was over for gf

    but in spite of the pain and then a big fucking storm we finished it

    I guess a pilgrimage shouldn't be too easy ?

    Spent a hot sweaty day at the skatepark BITD with the crew, grabbed a couple of cases of beer on way home, me and crew proceed to pound beers. My buddy Jeff has to piss excuses himself and doesnt return. Another dude goes to piss and says jeff is on the floor puking. Run in guy looks death rithing in pain. Pack him in the truck haul ass to ER yep its a stone. It got hung up and he had to be admitted. They hit him with soundswaves and broke it into sand. Jeff was ex green beret fought in panama and the first desert storm, purple heart and is a hard mofo. Said he wanted to die.

    Had 1, worst experience of my life. Doctor told me to pound water to pass it. Drank 3-4 gallons a day for a week. Then it got stuck. Blacked out from the pain, they had to shoot it with lasers or something to break it up. Then it was like passing many smaller ones. More pain. Lots.

    I lived on an island and they told me it was from salt in the drinking water, along with too much salt in my diet. I was 22, drank like a fish, and lived off pizza and breakfast sandwiches. I donít think I even drank water back then.

    Changed my diet and drink lots of water everyday. I balance the water intake out with beer. Been 18 years, but something Iíll Never ever forget

    But, hows skiing after the tendon rupture?

    Laying here about 10 days post surgery pondering my future. Paranoid about tearing the other side, how long until i pop the same side again, etc. etc.

    I feel your pain. I have pasted big and small.
    The biggest was 1.2 cms that broke off a larger stone. The kidney is like a hand. When the stones are in the finger region you're fine but when they move all hell breaks loose. The key is to try to dissolve them before they move.

    Find out if you are get enough citrate in your diet. The lack of such caused me to form uric acid stones. Change in my diet has helped to the point I only pass small stones nows. Fingers crossed

    Chanca Piedra supplement and increasing citrates will help break them down.

    Btw make sure there isn't more on the way because if driving or somewhere on a trail it can be dangerous.

    Good luck.

    I've never worried about them a day in my life until now, thanks fellas!

    Back in '09 I almost died from internal bleeding and it hurt so much it was crazy, all the blood going into the muscles or something. The ambulance that came and took me to the hospital went about 5 mph the whole way there because I was in so much pain they were convinced it was a kidney stone and they were trying not to bounce me around. Slowest ambulance ride in history. Meanwhile I was literally dying in the back of the ambulance. It's comedy, now.

    Had one about a year ago. I woke up in extreme pain and tried to sleep it off. The pain kept getting worse so I woke my wife up and she took me to the emergency room. The opiates did not work, so they gave me something that did. With some meds and lots of water the pain subsided. A week later I saw the urologist and he said the stone had passed, I got lucky. Some of the worst pain I have ever experienced. Supposedly passing one is hell, I just got lucky and it passed without pain.

    It hurts, skiing. It hurts riding. It hurts squatting. It sucks, actually. Did both sides in consecutive seasons. I still get after it, but itís not the same.
    Best of luck.

    I was thinking the same thing, a new injustice I have not yet experienced, but can probably look forward to.
