Muscle Pain where my kidneys are

Posted by suegstarfir @suegstarfir, Jan 13 5:47pm

I had COVIDin November. In the 3rd week of November I started getting severe pain in my back on the right where my kidney is. We thought I had a kidney stone. Went to ER’s nothing. Had 2 CAT-scans- nothing! Doctor wanted to give me Valium!! The PA at the other ER told me to do Yoga!! I can’t get any help. My Primary doctor wanted me to take anti depressants & anxiety pills!
I now have the same pain on the left side. So now I have it on both sides. It comes & goes. Very sharp pains to where I want to pass out. I need help. Is anyone else suffering severe muscle pain???

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Post-COVID Recovery & COVID-19 Support Group.

Mine isn’t as severe, but it’s constant and not caused by kidney. Mine is left side and radiates into the hip and down leg — feels like sciatica. I hope you can find some relief. I tried gardening yesterday and worked through the pain, but I’m paying for it this morning.

Some years ago I had troubling right flank pain. I eventually went to a A+ rated Physical Therapist (P.T.) and they located a trigger point at this location. This P.T. asked if I had ever fallen. Come to think of it I had taken a fall at a much earlier time, and none of the doctors (not Mayo's) I had seen prior had asked me that question (This took place prior to "Have you fallen recently?", becoming a standard office visit screening question). The Physical Therapist's elaborate initial evaluation dislodged a stone (I am 100% certain of!) the very next day that had not been visualized on prior imaging.

Irrespective of what your imaging shows I recommend (based on my personal experience) if you haven't already, taking a good look at lists of high oxalate foods. If you consume them, try reducing your intake of oxalates for a couple of weeks to see if you happen to notice any improvement. Increasing water intake and going easy on salt over this time will be of help too. I'll put my money on this will be helpful if you have been consuming things like peanuts.

Mine is on the right and has turned into a tremor and spasm for over 2 years now. I'm hoping some of the anti virals I am just starting on now will help. It's been rough going.

It will be two years in May when I went to the hospital for abdominal pain . I was admitted but basically medicated. Pain was so bad couldn't sit, stand lay down etc. After released went ti the er twice l. Two nights in a row after released. Then went to another hospital er and they dud scans. After testing this group of Dr's kept coming in eventually saying I was going to be admitted. One quarter of my kidney died and by the next day another quarter. So half of my right kidney is dead. At the time the first hospital never tested me for covid but by the time I got to next hospital I was negative. Total of 3 and a half weeks. Bow I have stage 1 or 2 kudney failure. I asked my primary dr to do a prep blood test and sure enough it showed civid. Hospitals weren't thinking covid with stomach pain back then. They thought all respiratory. I have asthma but it never hit my lungs. I found out I have blood disorders through blood tests. High factor v. High factor v111, my D dimer was high and protein c. Without any covid test the results from blood tests with these markers can indicate past covid. I listen and watch Greg Vanichkachorn, M.D., M.P.H from the Mayo. Je goes to Washington and speaks about long haul covid and the results of people having to go on disability. Like me. I wonder if I had Bern accepted to the Mayo back then where I would be now. I have anout 20 duagnosises. Has turned my life upside down. My daily skills I can't do well. I've got tremors severe tinnitus, lost part of my hearing , get winded easily, severe brain fog.sleeplesness. kudney infarcts. Stage 2 esophagitis etc. Ptsd Anxietyvand severe depression
Psoriasis taking over
I almost feel I can't leave my house. Get blood tests. They reveal so much

Maybe EBOO would help. I have not tried it yet but I am consider it. It is a process of cleaning the blood.
