Many Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) patients complain that they have severe back pain that makes them unable to sleep and sit in a hard bed. However, when doctors ask where their pain is located, some patients can’t figure out clearly. Thereby, today, we are here to introduce the location of back pain with PKD.
Polycystic Kidney Disease is one inherited kidney disorder that is characterized by a lot of fluid-filled cysts. In the early stage, kidney cysts usually don’t cause any problem, but as time goes on, enlarged kidney cysts will compress the surrounding kidney tissues and organs. Then, pain around kidneys occur easily.
Additionally, ruptured kidney cysts, urinary tract infections or kidney stone may also cause back pain. Since PKD patients’ back pain is due to kidney problems, their back pain must be located in kidney area.
Kidneys are a pair of bean-shaped organs that are located in the upper abdominal cavity. The two kidneys sit opposite each other on both sides of the pine. Therefore, if kidney cysts are too large, the pain must appear in the location of kidney.
If one person has pain in the upper abdominal cavity and a family history of Polycystic Kidney Disease, he or she may be supposed to have Polycystic Kidney Disease. If they are indeed diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney Disease, they should take treatment immediately. Otherwise, they may have kidney failure finally. Therefore, patients should take effective treatments timely.
The key to treat Polycystic Kidney Disease is to shrink kidney cysts and protect remaining kidney function. As for the detailed treatment plan, it should depend on patients’ illness condition. If you have PKD, you are recommended to tell the online doctor more about your illness condition or send your test report to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are glad to help you.
