Constant Kidney pain

OK, I am a 25 year old female with a history of kidney stones since I was 16. I have had 4 surgeries to have them removed and one to have a stent placed because my kidney was swollen. I have constant pain in my right kidney. RIght now I have 5 stones in each kidney. The doctors don't understand why I am in pain cause the stones are not moving. I hurt when I am up doing laundry, I hurt when I am washing dishes, I hurt after I pee. I am 25 years old and I feel like I am 70. Blood shows up in every urine test, but my kidney function shows ok. I am so tired of being in pain and would like to get some answers!

Ashley,
     I have Medullary Sponge Kidney disease, and though it does not sound like you have MSK, many of us have unexplained kidney pain from the many stones and calcifications in our kidneys.  We have a lot of great resources and info on this subject in our MSK support group here on Medhelp. I have included links below that might help you. I personally, and my physician believe for many of us a biofilm infection sets up within the stones.  This infection does not show up on standard tests since the bacteria do not slough off in sufficient numbers for standard UA testing.  I have a great deal of info, research etc. on this.  You can pm me and I will send you more links and information on this as well.

Here on the great links here on Medhelp;
http://www.medhelp.org/forums/show/256?personal_page_id=30644 hope you will come over and join us.

There are many good articles and info to help you as well.  Infections are common with MSK since  The healthpages are many articles on pain and no stone in ureter or infection.

There are also some specific articles on MSK and pain in the health pages here:

I hope this helps you get some help and relief!
