Can you bruise a kidney by falling on your lower back?
It depends on the severity of the bruising as well as any damage to surrounding tissue, other organs, ribs, etc... It's difficult to bruise a kidney without affecting other th…ings as well so it's not just the kidney that needs to heal. I have a bruised kidney right now - as a result of a pretty hard fall and mine is considered pretty minor. I also bruised a lung and the muscle tissue around the rib cage. I'm looking at a few weeks to recovery. The more severe the injury the longer it will take - up to a few months. I'm on day 3 right now and I have yet to see any reduction in the pain levels without medication. It gets pretty intense. There's not a lot you can do to speed healing either. Just like any bruise it has to resolve on it's own. I find a bit of relief applying heat to the damaged muscle tissue but that does nothing for the kidney. You should avoid doing anything strenuous but I think you'll find that your kidney will complain if you try anyway. Your doctor may recommend a restricted diet. One that would make life easier on your kidney doing it's job in processing what you eat and drink while it's healing. Good luck to you.
Answer It is because your kidneys are trying to remove the waste products from your blood but as the blood is quite thick from the dehydration the kidneys …are having to work extra hard.
Yes, it is possible for a variety of kidney problems to cause lower back pain. Kidney related low back pain is at the top of the list of possible causes when no recent acciden…t or injury has occurred to explain back pain. Kidney disease or injury can cause lower back pain in one of two ways: A reflex pain from an internal organ that is experienced on the surface of the body, due to excitation of what is called a viscerosomatic reflex.Direct swelling and pressure of an enlarged or inflamed kidney that applies direct pressure to the low back muscles and nerves, causing pain in the immediate area of the kidney. Common symptoms of lower back pain caused by kidney involvement: Dull deep pain in the low back over the area of one or both kidneysKidney sore to touch Elevated body temperature Urinary frequencyCloudiness of the urineBlood in the urinePain or burning when urinating
Can taking lortab be causing your kidney pains in the morning or what feels like kidney pain on both sides of your lower back?
Lortab is a brand name for Hydrocodone and is usually combined with a large dose of acetaminophen (Tylenol). The highest recommended dose of Tylenol for an adult in a 24 hour… period is not to exceed 2,000mg's. That is equal to about 2 tablets of Tylenol, 3 times a day. This is the amount of Tylenol that would typically be included in 4-6 tablets of Lortab. If you are taking more than that in a 24 hour period your liver is absorbing more acetaminophen than it can handle and can cause some serious side effects including pain. This pain can be mistaken as KIDNEY PAIN. Over a long period of time, high doses of Lortab can lead to liver problems, including liver disease and failure. Don't be too alarmed until you have blood work done from your family doctor. A simple test can show whether or not your liver is functioning properly and what you can do to stop the damage before it's too late. There are many variables that can speed the process of Lortab's effect on your liver. These include other medications you may be taking as well as taking the medicine with or shortly before or after consuming alcohol. If you are worried about this please do not hesitate talking to your doctor about having the blood/liver tests done. I have a cousin who was scared to ask her doctor about this and ended up never getting the blood tests done for fear her doctor would cut her off from her pain medication all together. She ended up in the hospital for 4 months after liver failure and almost didn't make it. I'd much rather deal with being honest with my doctor than the possibility of my last trip in life to the emergency room. Below is a list you would typically find from most pharmacies warning labels on Hydrocodone products. If you have anymore questions on this subject please post them in the discussion board and I will try to respond as quickly as possible. Good luck to you and may God bless you and see you through your pain. I've been in your shoes and know first hand how difficult it can be.

Why would i have sever pain in lower back from bilateral facet osteoarthrtis after an accident from a fall?
From what you have written you actually have two separate problems going on at the same time, making the pain more severe or intense than if you only had one problem at a time…. Bilateral facet osteoarthritis means that you already have common degenerative arthritis going on in your lower back, located in the small facet joints in the back or rear area of the lumbar spine. By itself, lumbar facet osteoarthritis can hurt a lot when just going about your normal daily routines. But you say you also fell. It would appear that the fall you took aggravated the pre-existing lumbar facet arthritis, making your back pain worse than it already was. A facet is a type of joint found at the back or rear portion of the spine that gives support and strength to the spinal column while still allowing the spine to move. There are a total of 46 facet joints in the spine, made up of pairs of projections from two adjacent spinal bones that unit them together in a functional unit of strength and movement. These facet joints are all covered and further strengthened by layers of ligaments that reinforce each one. Your accident did not start the arthritis in the facet joints, but merely aggravated a condition that you have been developing for some time. How do I know this? Because it takes time, usually several years for any type or degree of arthritis to show up in an x-ray or MRI examination.
