Swollen Foot & Back Pain

Postby Jax » Wed Jul 27, 2016 12:34 pm

Age 39 female(Neph.History: I have passed sharp-hook type stones in past which one time caused a blockage & enlarged kidney w/infection.)  Over the past couple weeks my left foot has been significantly swollen & is getting worse(my right foot is only slightly swollen).  I have also been experiencing back kidney type pain that is worse when I wake up in the morning(I know it's not my bed because I have experimented w/sleeping in different places.)  Could my symptoms indicate kidney problem?  If so what type of things could be going on & what tests would be helpful?  Thank-U so very much for your opinion-your input is greatly appreciated.

Hi Jayne,

Thanks for asking my opinion on "Allexperts".

Yes, your symptoms could be due to kidney dysfunction. A detailed history, physical examination, imaging of the kidneys and lab tests like urinalysis, BUN, S. Creatinine, S. electrolytes, etc. will be helpful in diagnosing your condition.

Sincerely,

Dr. Shah
