    Can bladder stone cause occasional mild AD?

    My back in the shoulder blade area sometimes feels chilled/sweaty. Nowhere else. Not my chest, neck, or head. Blood pressure is elevated a little to 120/80 or a little above, or it can be at my normal levels or lower. Foley is clear, no UTI, rectum is empty, hemorrhoid cream applied, skin is fine, no ingrown toenail, no overly tight clothes.

    I do have a small bladder stone. My urologist doesn't think it needs to be removed yet. We are watching it.

    The chilled feeling of my back can last for many hours, or just a short time. The blood pressure is too low to treat with Nitro-Bid or anything..

    Yes, stones can definitely cause AD as well as UTIs.

    Well, still having a problem with blood pressure getting to the 130s and 140s, when not in its normal range of 90 to 110-120, so I'm spending a lot of time wearing Nitro-Bid patches to keep the pressure down. Occasionally, there is sweating above my level (high C-5), but the vast majority of the time there is only chilled feeling my shoulder blade area. My neurologist, an SCI and brain injury specialist, agreed with me that the emergency room would only treat the elevated blood pressure, even if I take information about AD, and wouldn't do the tests I need done to find the cause, like CT scan. So, I finally have scheduled CT scan of my chest, abdomen and pelvis for 10-30. Maybe something will be found. Meanwhile, I am to continue with the Nitro-Bid.

    I'm also talking with my urologist regarding zapping the bladder stone.
