Nutcracker syndrome is a condition that affects your left renal vein. This is the vein that carries blood away from your left kidney and back to your heart. Nutcracker syndrome is a type of extrinsic vein compression syndrome. In these syndromes, the structure of your blood vessels puts pressure on one of your veins


Symptoms of nutcracker syndrome that you may notice include:

  • Blood in your pee (hematuria). This is the most common symptom.
  • Feeling dizzy when you stand up (caused by orthostatic hypotension).
  • Flank pain on your left side.

Symptoms can also vary based on your sex. Men and people assigned male at birth (AMAB) may experience swollen veins in their scrotum (varicocele).

Women and people assigned female at birth (AFAB) may experience symptoms of pelvic congestion syndrome. These include:

  • Pain during sex (dyspareunia).
  • Pain when you pee (dysuria).
  • Pelvic pain.

There are also signs your healthcare provider can see through testing. You can’t see these signs on your own. Clinical signs of nutcracker syndrome include:

  • Low levels of red blood cells (anemia).
  • Microscopic amounts of blood in your pee (microhematuria).
  • Too much protein in your pee (proteinuria).


Changes in your blood vessel anatomy cause nutcracker syndrome. Sometimes these changes happen in the womb as your blood vessels are forming. Other times, they happen due to growth spurts during adolescence or weight loss during adulthood. In some cases, there’s no known cause.
