The Most PAINFUL Thing a Human Can Experience?? | Kidney Stones

Jun 05, 2021
around and try to push it down. This is one of the biggest reasons why you feel so much pain. The tube just contracts: that layer of muscle is spasmodic and pushes around it in an attempt to push all the stone out here. I'm going to do the best I can... Let's look at this and see if we can get a side by side comparison... I'll draw it here so you can see how big it is. Even though it runs parallel, it's still a pretty big stone. If it even goes that way, that's another problem! I even have other

stones

- check this out.

I measured this stone and this stone... these

stones

here - again, I don't know the exact composition of them... I didn't do any kind of analysis. I'd imagine it's probably calcium oxalate or calcium phosphate, but it gets bigger. I think the biggest stone we have here is this, which is about nine millimeters. You can see the problem here! Just compare the tube and then compare your size. You can see we have a pretty big problem here, that it's just not going to fit. This is where you will definitely need to start doing what are known as interventions.

The interventions will be

thing

s like medications like pain relievers or muscle relaxants, which will target that ureter, which makes a lot of sense! If you manage to relax and open up, it will be easier for that stone to pass. There will also be

thing

s like surgical procedures like shock wave lithotripsy. This is where you will lie down and they will send focused sound waves through the water and up your back towards the

kidney

to pulverize the stone. It depends on the hardness of the stone, which depends on what it's made of... it depends on the place.

You can only take one session. This can take several sessions. Or it's not even the best way to do it. They may have to go in and cut through your skin, down to the

kidney

itself, and take the stone out that way. Another option is what is known as ureteroscopy. In a ureteroscopy, they go up the urethra, into the bladder, into the entire ureter, and then into the kidney itself if they have to go that far, and they have a little basket so they can grab the stone and pull it out. . Or they can even attach a laser to it that will shoot the stone, and then use the basket to capture the stone shards or as many as they can and take them out.

These are going to be things that make things easier, but they have their own problems and everyone has complications, they have their own pain. It's one of those things that, let's say you could delete it and make it smaller… well, you still have a lot of chunks to stream. If we just did shock wave lithotripsy, you'd still have to get through the fragments and it could be much smaller, it should be smaller than four millimeters, which would make it much easier, but it's not like it's going to be. frankly comfortable doing it. In the end, of course, it's going to be much better than if you hadn't lasered it off or shockwaved it away in the first place.
So you're probably wondering, now that I've scared the hell out of you, or if you've had it before you know it, "what can I do to stop this from happening? What causes it in the first place?" ?" It really comes down to two chapters, and will it be a genetic predisposition (do you have a family history) or will it be based on your diet. But even if it's either of those two things, the end result will be the supersaturation we mentioned: you'll have too much calcium, oxalate and phosphate in the urinary tract. Diet is going to be something you can control very easily, and you'll want to partake in foods that are lower in oxalate.
That's why you should avoid things like beans, potatoes, or spinach. You may find lists foods that are lower or higher in oxalate. You'll want foods that have a better source of calcium. But the main thing, well, I shouldn't… maybe I shouldn't say the

most

important, but one of the

most

important factors it will be really... being well hydrated. You want to make sure you urinate because if you are well hydrated through proper hydration sources, not just drinks like soda or cola. Because colas have also been shown to have They have a strong connection with the formation of kidney stones.
If I drink enough water, maybe I should say this first... if you're dehydrated, then you're supersaturated because there's less water content in your urine. If you are well hydrated, you may have a more normal saturation level and are much less likely to have stones. So it probably comes as no surprise that the answer, or at least the best remedy or method of prevention, is a better overall diet and drinking water. So why are kidney stones so

painful

? Well, it's a combination of things! It just so happens that it's the fact that a stone is forming inside your urinary tract that can obstruct the flow and cause pressure inside the kidney...
It's the fact that it's often sharp and jagged or just oddly shaped and pushes through a tube that the tube is smaller than the stone itself... Then it scrapes and scrapes it down, all the way to the bottom, by the way, and sometimes you get a moment of relief or relief when it comes to the bladder , but sometimes you can't. You also have the residual sensation of residue, either in the bladder or outside the urethra, because your body has just gone through a traumatic event. Try to heal like this. Then it goes through the urethra, and by the way, it's one of the few times in

human

biology that it's worse to be a man because you're going to have an obviously longer urethra that you're going to have to come out...
It's such a combination of all those kinds of things. that come together to create this crazy, crazy, excruciatingly

painful

experience
