Understand your predicament, the pain is very severe and is referred to as renal colic. It occurs as episodes of pain recurring in nature. The pain is spasmodic in nature as the ureter is trying to push through the obstruction, which is usually a renal stone. The ureter is the tubular structure that connects the kidney to the bladder. So each time the urine tries to pass through the obstruction it causes severe pain. It can be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, sweating and sometimes blood in the urine. Vomiting does not indicate that the stone is passing through, usually there is some bleeding when the stone comes out and you can visualize the stone.
I threw up with everyone because if the pain, it was so severe that how much body handled it. I just got done passing about 60 stones within 1 year so I feel your pain. Drinks lots of water and fresh lemonade helps too!
OUCH and yes, it can. It sometimes takes IV anti nausea with a combo of meds to work to stop the vomiting. I ended up with Zofran + Reglan in the hospital. Do be careful of dehydration .. so important. It looks like it's been a long time since you posted (March) .. how are you doing now?
