Customer Question
I had uncontrollable shivering last...
I had uncontrollable shivering last night followed by the sweats. I'm in the process of passing a kidney stone, in the 5th day of it now. The pain at times is really pushing me towards my limits. Do I need to go back to the doctor or is this just something I need to suffer through?

Hello,

I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.

You should go to your doctor. Shivering and sweats indicates urinary tract infection (occasionally which extends to kidney and is termed pyelonephritis). This would warrant a course of antibiotics. So it is necessary to go to the doctor for physical exam and may be repeat of the ultrasound and a urine and blood culture test.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

The treatment which help in passing out of stones;

1) Analgesics like Ibuprofen; they relax the ureters and facilitate the passing of stone.

2) Nifedipine or related group medications like Amlodipine which too dilate the ureters.

3) Plenty of liquids.

4) Antibiotics; if associated urinary tract infection.

5) Potassium citrate;; in certain type of stone like calcium oxalate stones.

It is privilege assisting you.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
