PKD Patient Has Pain That Comes and Goes In the Kidney

PKD Patient Has Pain That Comes and Goes In the KidneyIt is quite common that Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) patients complain sharp or dull pain in their kidney area, or back and flank pain. Sometimes, their pain comes and goes in the kidney, but sometimes, it stays there all the time.

Continuous kidney cyst growth and kidney cyst bursting are two leading causes of kidney pain for PKD patients. If patients have pain that comes and goes in their kidney area, it is more likely to indicate kidney cyst rupture. When they are unable to bear the pain, most of them take painkillers as their first choice, but later, they find these medicines don’t work.

How to deal with kidney pain for PKD patients? Since kidney pain is associated with kidney cyst closely, only taking pain-relieving medicines isn’t one wise option. To manage these patients’ kidney pain, the following methods are helpful.

- Avoid foods that can stimulate the growth of kidney cysts. In our daily life, some foods or drinks, such as beer, coffee, chocolate and spice foods, may speed up the growth of kidney cysts and increase the risk of kidney cyst rupture. If you want to learn more about these foods, you can go to Polycystic Kidney Disease Diet.

- Don’t do strenuous exercise: If one kidney cyst is bigger than 3 or 4 cm, any knock at kidney area may cause kidney cyst rupture. From this point, PKD patients should avoid strenuous exercise.

- Shrink kidney cysts actively: Some Chinese medicines are able to drain sac fluid and inhibit the growth of kidney cysts. After a period of treatment, patients can find their abdomen becomes soft, because their kidney cysts become smaller. However, different patients need to take various medicines. Tell us how big your kidney cysts are, so we can help you determine what medicines are helpful for you.

As long as your kidney cysts are kept in small size, your pain in the kidney will go forever.
