Kidney Stones or Prostatitis? How to Differentiate Them?

Prostatitis and kidney stones are two completely different diseases. Their pathogenesis, etiology, clinical manifestations, and treatment methods are different. The symptoms of reproductive and urinary system diseases are very similar, but the etiology is different, the treatment plan is also very different. The wrong diagnosis will lead to the wrong treatment, and patients will lose good treatment opportunity.
Kidney stone:
The symptoms of kidney stones depend on size, shape, location, and complications such as infection and obstruction. Most patients have no symptoms unless the stone falls from the kidney to the ureter and causes ureteral obstruction. The common symptoms of falling-out include lumbar and abdominal colic, nausea, vomiting, restlessness, abdominal distension, hematuria, and so on. Acute renal colic often causes pain in patients.
Pyuria can occur when there is a urinary tract infection, and an acute attack may cause chills, fever, low back pain, frequency, and urgent urination, urodynia, which are similar to the prostatitis symptoms. Some kidney stones have a smooth surface and small volume and can be excreted with urine without causing obvious symptoms. 
Stones fixed in the pelvis and lower calyces without infection can also be asymptomatic. Even large staghorn stones, if they do not cause calyx, pelvic obstruction or infection, patients may have no obvious symptoms for a long time, or only mild renal discomfort or soreness. Kidney stones have some adverse effects on male sexual function, but the condition is not serious.
Prostatitis is divided into two types: 
1. Bacterial prostatitis caused by a bacterial infection 
2. Chronic prostatic diseases caused by gland stiffness and sclerosis.
Acute prostatitis is caused by a bacterial infection. The bacterial infection character appears soon after infection, which causes increased urgency of urine, the pain of urine, frequency of urine, etc.
Some patients will also appear purulent secretions, and some patients will have fatigue, anorexia, nausea, vomiting, chills and fever, and other systemic symptoms. Some symptoms are similar to those of kidney stones complicated with infection, so patients must go to the hospital for examination and diagnosis in time.
The prostate gland is filled with capillaries, a large number of nerve networks, and nerve endings. When the capillaries and nerve endings in the glands are necrotic, the necrotic sites form a stiff and sclerotic lesion, which causes superficial inflammation symptoms. Chronic prostatic diseases can cause a variety of problems and symptoms.
Systemic symptoms include insomnia, dreaminess, hair loss, cold hands and feet, memory loss, scrotal dampness, etc.
Urinary problems include frequent urination, urgency, pain, nocturnal urination, incomplete urination, waiting for urine, white drops after urination, etc.
Sexual function problems include premature ejaculation, erectile weakness, erectile firmness, long erectile time, weak ejaculation, decreased ejaculatory pleasure, impotence, ejaculation, etc.
Pain problems include urinary pain, abdominal pain, testicular swelling, perineal pain, urinary foreign body sensation, ejaculation pain, thigh root pain, and other radiation pain.
Although chronic prostatitis is harmful, active treatment can effectively improve and avoid various complications. Patients can take Chinese herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill with a good curative effect, and it can promote diuresis and relieve stranguria, promote blood circulation, and remove blood stasis. Therefore, it can help effectively eliminate all kinds of pathogenic bacteria, eliminate the focus, fundamentally cure patients, and it is not easy to relapse.
But the sexual impairment caused by chronic prostatitis is different from that caused by kidney stones. Necrosis of nerves and capillaries at the site of stiff and sclerotic lesions has a great influence on the transmission of sexual stimulation. The growth and rehabilitation of nerves are unpredictable, so it is difficult to recover from sexual dysfunction caused by chronic prostatitis. Therefore, patients must develop good living habits and hygienic habits in peacetime to avoid the occurrence of prostatitis as far as possible.
