The remedies for kidney pain should be given by a nephrology physician after diagnosis of the cause of pain, associated symptoms and assessment of the person's physical condition because there are several causes and diseases that may be at the root of this problem. See the main causes for kidney pain.
However, to relieve symptoms while there is still no conclusive diagnosis, your doctor may recommend pharmacy remedies such as:
- Painkillers such as paracetamol, tramadol or Toragesic;
- Anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen, aspirin, diclofenac or nimesulide;
- Antispasmodics, like Buscopan.
When kidney pain is caused by infection, it may also be necessary to take an antibiotic, for which the bacteria is sensitive. However, if pain is being caused by kidney stones, one of the medications can be Allopurinol, phosphate solutions and antibiotics, your doctor may also recommend drinking plenty of water.
Back pain, specifically lower back pain, does not always indicate kidney pain and can be mistaken for a muscle or spinal pain, which can also be relieved with anti-inflammatory drugs and muscle relaxants, also prescribed by the doctor. It is also important to avoid masking the symptoms with these medications, to avoid delaying the treatment of a possible disease.
