Hi and WELCOME to our Kidney Stone Community. I'm not a doctor, but do have too much experience with kidney stones. For me, I'd get pings and pangs in my kidney as well as microhematuria (blood you cannot see by eye) in my urine when I have stones. I've also had the flank pain you describe .. for me it's been in the lower back. I hope with lots of water your stones move out for you uneveventfully.
Please keep in touch. From what I've read stones <5.0mm usually move out on their own with a high % of non-complications, etc.
Thanks It is nice to know I am not alone! I ended up going into the er on sunday morning and found out that i have a 1.3 mm and a .7 mm stone in my right urteter. So i suppose the answer is that the pain was there because they did move out, lol. Anyway this is only my second time dealing with them even though it is only a few weeks apart, and would apprechiate any info you have on the subject. I still have about 5 stones in my right kidney so i am sure i will be dealing with this often. I will definately keep in touch, and if i can ever be of help to you just let me know.
Hi everyone.. about a month ago i got a sudden server pain in my lower stomach ! A burning sharp horrible pain so bad I went to the hospital..I mean I'm normally very good with pain I've given birth naturally! But this pain made me cry like a baby .. they tested my urine and there was some slight blood in there as well as some white blood cells ? They did a ultrasound sound and found my right kidney to be bigger than it should be and a obstruction ? I went home with them saying I need a ct scan ...at this point the pain had gone so I was happy to go home .. but the pain came back and then it went into my back as well this continued for about 4 days happening early hours of the morning late evening and early morning .. does this sound like kidney stones as I'm really worried its something more serious..I'm 31 a female and my ct scan is tomorrow. I'm scared . So any advice would be great .x
