Why PKD Patients Experience Back Pain

2015-03-05 07:07

Why PKD Patients Experience Back PainMany polycystic kidney disease (PKD) patients are more likely to suffer from severe back pain. PKD is a common kidney disease and it is also an inherited kidney disease. Before the age of 25, PKD patients have no symptoms. However, with the development of medical conditions, patients will have high blood pressure and back pain as well as other discomforts. In severe case, the pain is intolerable. This is because cysts have been very large and the cysts will oppress kidneys and do damages on kidneys.

Back pain in PKD patients can be caused by the following factors:

1. enlarged or burst kidneys will lead to bleeding and swelling of kidneys. In this condition, back pain will occur.

2. since kidneys or cysts grow or there is much bleeding in cysts, this will pull renal capsule or pull vascular nerves of renal pedicle.

3. if patients have symptoms of lithangiuria, kidneys and ureter will be impacted by urine. Back pain can also occur.

4. intense physical activity and long term of walking will lead to back pain as well.

Polycystic kidney disease is an occult disease. When the cysts are very small, patients often feel no discomforts. It is very severe when they have some discomforts. Therefore, if you have a family history of PKD or you doubt you may have PKD, you should take regular checkups so as to diagnose as early as possible and take treatment early.
