Hi there Betsan my name is Jan and I can understand exactly how you feel, I too have repeating kidney stones and recently been diagnosed with nephrocalcinosis....repeated surgeries, lithotripsy and pain pills have been the routine for me in the last few years, and of course relentless PAIN.........! I have only recently heard about MSK and am wondering if this I have this condition Shelley has been very helpful and I'm just waiting for the links (PDF info) to take to my doctor to request an IVP. Anyway when you get time drop me a line.........I hope you're feeling a little better today, and yes I've noticed my symtpoms worsen in the heat we've recently had in the UK..even if I drink and drink!
