According to Healthline, kidney disease can cause pain in several parts of the body due to the close relationship between the kidneys and other organs. However, here are some of the body parts you may feel pain if you have kidney disease.
1. One of the most common symptoms of kidney disease is back pain. The kidneys are located in the lower back, so pain in this area can be a sign of kidney damage or inflammation.
2. Kidney disease can cause pain in the abdominal area, especially if there is an infection or inflammation in the kidneys. The pain may be dull or sharp, and may also be accompanied by nausea and vomiting.
3. Kidney disease can also cause pain in the urinary tract, which includes the bladder, ureters, and urethra. This pain may be felt during urination, or as a constant, dull ache in the lower abdomen.
4. In some cases, kidney disease can cause leg pain due to nerve damage or poor blood circulation. This may be accompanied by swelling or numbness in the legs.
5. Kidney disease can sometimes lead to heart problems, which can cause chest pain or discomfort. This may be a sign of a heart attack, so it is important to seek medical attention immediately if you experience chest pain.
