Take care, I know how painful that can be. Take care. I've heard that cranberry juice may help, hope you are feeling better.

Put your dirty stove burner parts in a plastic trash bag with a cupful of ammonia. Tie it closed and leave it outside overnight. Wash the parts off in the morning and they will be clean.

Thanks SB, I am drinking cranberry juice, as well as marshmallow root tea and a magnesium drink that the lady at the health food store recommended to TB for me. Plus water of course! I am feeling a little waterlogged, but it helps to flush it out.

I have actually been taking both of those regularly but I didn't know they were good for kidneys! They are good for my candida diet so I try to have them in my water, tea, whatever I can. Thanks, Princess for letting me know I am on the right track!

Now here's hoping I can get some sleep.

Thank you Andy

Is it okay to use cloudy ammonia as that is the only one our supermarkets seem to sell?

Laurie, I too am having a kidney ultrasound next week, it is called a Renal ultrasound here

I have been having a pain in my left side now for years and I have recently decided to go to the doctors to get it investigated.

They have ruled out certain infections and have said they think it is muscular, but I am not convinced

I had an x-ray done on my stomach but that did not show much

So now I am off to have an ultrasound to see if it may be a kidney stone!

What are your symptoms like and whereabouts is your pain?

Magnesium and viatmin B6 help break down and prevent kidney stones. Magnesium will also help with your migraines.
I used to get kidney stones often but since starting my daily supplement of magnesium and B6 I haven't had them again.
The cider vinegar PF mentioned works wonders! I also drink it when I have kidney problems.
