Nephropathy Syndrome: Causes Of Back Pain And Cramp

Nephropathy Syndrome: Causes Of Back Pain And CrampSome Nephrotic Syndrome patients complain that they are suffering from serious symptoms of back pain and cramp, but others are not. Why? What is the causes of back pain and cramp in nephrotic syndrome? This article mainly aims at to explain both the above symptoms, hope can help you greatly.

Causes of back pain in nephrotic syndrome

1. Steroid drugs are commonly used for nephrotic syndrome in the clinical treatment, while some side effects of steroids are unavoidable, osteoporosis is one of them. Some back pains are related to the fractures due to osteoporosis.

2. This is a false concept. Because the position of kidney is close to one of lower back, some patients consider the kidney pain as the back pain mistakenly. For nephrotic syndrome patients, kidney pain can occur commonly due to the inflammation in kidneys.

3. Kidney stone is also a common cause of back pain in nephrotic syndrome. People may feel a severe cramping pain that spreads from the lower back into the groin if there is a kidney stone in the ureter.

Causes of cramp in nephrotic syndrome

1. Dialysis

In some cases of nephrotic syndrome, muscle cramp may occur as a complication of dialysis.

2. Diuretics

Edema or swelling is an important symptom of nephrotic syndrome due to retention of fluids while diuretic is commonly used to promote the excretion of fluids from body. However, if diuretics are used for a long time, lots of potassium will be discharged out of the body, thus leading to hypokalemia which can cause muscle cramp directly.

In addition, hormone, low blood volume, serious nervous system condition, etc also can lead to cramp in nephrotic syndrome.

Honestly speaking, in addition to cramp and back pain in nephrotic syndrome, there will have other serious symptoms if you left the condition uncontrolled. So to find a natural treatment for nephrotic syndrome is so necessary.
