I dont know if anyone has had similar experiences, but here goes!  sorry if anyone is grossed out with below!

I got recently diagnosed as having kidney stones, this came about after struggling with the morning toilet visit and the occasional blood in the urine after training! (one being when i pulled out of my 12 hour after doing 21kms!)

The doctor recomended that we look at lifestyle and diet changes first.  These have included cutting down on the caffeine (no coke for 6 weeks now) and working on the hydration department!  End result is that apart from feeling the hernia in the groin all the time now, things are ok there!

But the blood in the urine is still happening, every time I train or compete! There is no pain down below either when training!  When I dont train, all is ok, but every time I train and compete ( racewalking) the same result! Even over short 5km distances!  Getting frustrating and i seem to be getting slower!  

Probably time to see the doctor again and push for a specialist visit!  

But be interested to know if anyone has a similar experience!

Phil,

I have had the occassional blood in the urine, but normally when I am dehydrated.  Once I get adequate fluid in me all is well again.  So I will be interested in what you find out.

Phil,
I got diagnosed with a kidney stone over two years ago. Same thing was happening to me, as after every long run there was blood showing in my urine. being married to a nurse she made me get checked out straight away, and after numerous tests it came back that i have a kidney stone. It hasn't affected my running in any way. I have since completed 2 six foots and the 3 peaks in tassie plus numerous 1/2 marathons and 10k's races.
The specialist i seen told me to adjust my diet and that eventually i would pass the stone and when i do that it would give me some curry!
From memory he said there was 3 different types and ways of developing them. I have to give up eating chocolate which is a bummer as its about the only " bad " food that i eat. Also i have to go back in two years time to have another check up to make sure my body is not developing them.

Thanks Guys. Yes am working on the hydration side of things, but feeling already if i have any more fluid before training, i will slosh and rattle when moving along!

Am thinking I'll see the specialist, but maybe perserve and up the training!  I guess the worst that cna happen is the best result. passing the kidney stones!

Ow!  Interesting fact - William Shatner sold his kidney stone for US$25,000.  Time for an Ebay listing, riffraff?

Interesting.

I must get it insured before sending off to pathology.
