Is My Headache Caused by Polycystic Kidney Disease

Headache is a maddening pain. Recently, some patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease complain they are always suffering from headache and asked “is my headache caused by Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)”?

The Doctor Answered:

Is My Headache Caused by Polycystic Kidney Disease  Headache may be caused by many underlying diseases. For many PKD patients, they won’t have headache commonly, because PKD is a mild disease and patients usually can live it without any symptoms for several decades. However, with age, patients may have some symptoms such as high blood pressure, back pain, high creatinine level, renal failure, etc.

Among the above symptoms, headache is a little uncommon, because most of patients with PKD never have headache. Only if some of renal cysts grows too big or one of them ruptures to cause brain aneurysm, headache may occur easily. Therefore, the onset of headache is a dangerous alarm of severe complications of Polycystic Kidney Disease.

If you are suffering from headache, you had better consult a doctor or us to take prompt treatments. Don’t take any pain killer before consulting doctor.
