I am 28 and I got diagnosed last October! I have passed what seems like a million stones since then, and in the last few months I have been dealing with so much pain sometimes it brings me to my knees!! I do not know what to do right now since I am waiting for new insurance! This pain is so over whelming to me sometimes, and I do not want to quit working for any reason! My job is very important to me and I love it! I absolutely hate not goin to work, but I am now at home when I am supposed to be at work right now!! I can not do this!! The pain is unreal!! What do I do?
I am sitting here in my cubicle right now with a heating pad on my left kidney. I dont even know if heat helps but its something I can do at work. I know what you are dealing with it is not fun and very hard to keep up with. I have finally had it and I am going to call the doctor at Michigan that can help.
Welcome to our community and pls. know we are here for you anytime. Hot hot bath soaks help a tad ... so sorry you are going thru this right now. In our health pages there are many links we've put together on MSK and the pain, etc.
