Pain and Muscle Cramps in Kidney DiseaseKidney is one of the most organs of our body. It have many functions, including filtering wastes and toxins, maintaining fluid and electrolyte balance, regulating blood pressure, etc. When the kidneys are damaged, they will cause some symptoms. Can pain and muscle cramps be associated with kidney disease?

In some cases, the answer is yes. But how does that happen?

● Causes of pain

People with kidney disease often experience pain on the back, flank, or abdomen. The pain is dull and appears occasionally.

This condition may be caused by Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs), kidney stones, pyelonephritis, and kidney cyst. In addition, toxins accumulation due to loss of kidney function, will cause nerve damage, resulting in muscle pain, joint pain, headache, etc.

● Causes of muscle cramps

Muscle cramps is associated such problems;

- High phosphorous level in the blood. It can inhibit the absorption of calcium. Moderate reduction of calcium will cause moderate numbness and pinning sensations on limbs and face; in severer cases, the patients experience muscle cramps.

-Insufficient intake of vitamin D

- Imbalance of acid-base

● Treatment

Since the causes of pain and muscle cramps are not clear, I cannot give you specific suggestions. But here I can provide a general guidance for you to relieve the symptoms.

- Keep a kidney-friendly diet. A healthy diet is the basis during the treatment. In general, kidney disease patients are required to eat less sodium and protein. Potassium and phosphorous intake should also be restricted. Meanwhile, supply of vitamins and calories can not be forgotten.

- Try some home remedies

Taking a cold&warm towel on your painful area for 15 to 20 minutes. This can improve the micro-blood circulation so as to speed up the discharge of some harmful substances.

- Take some natural medicines or therapies

As for medicines, I think Traditional Chinese Medicine are better for you since they are natural and effective.

Well, as for therapies, you can take Acupuncture, Hot Compress Therapy, Foot Bath, Medicated Bath, etc. Practical treatment should be decided by the doctor according to you own condition.
