My daughter is obviously...

My daughter is obviously passing kidney stones but my question is.. today she has started getting chills. She checked her temp and it was only 97.8. But within the last 2 hours it has increased to 100.8. Should shego to the ER?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

No dr. yet. Hasn't seen a dr in 5 yrs so they dont consider her a patient anymore. She was taking advil and the pain meds specifically for urinary tract bought over the counter. Her pain is getting worse

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Nothing but birth control pills. No allergies that are known

Ok thank you

How old is your daughter?

Has she had kidney stones before? Does she have any kidney issues?

Ok thank you
She is 22 and never had them before. No kidney issues before

Is she still passing urine?

she is still passing urine

I think you should take her to the ER. The fever may be a sign of a kidney infection caused by stones. This may require further work-up and possibly IV antibiotics to help clear up. The pain may also be from something else so it will be important to be fully evaluated by a physician soon. I hope that helps.

she is still passing urine
Is it normal to have some blood in urine and a "tissue" like substance?

That could be a sign of a kidney stone but also could indicate a kidney infection. Because of that, I think you should have her see a physician today.

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!!
