can kidney stones move in the body? Found an kidney stone on the right side now months later left side is tender and swollen an hot! right kidney stone never REMOVED!! now left side feels like it had the stone from the right side??????????? Is that possible???????
I agree with pixiepie they cannot move from one side to another. you probably passed the one on the right without knowing and new one formed on the left. Also a kidney infection will have the same symptoms as a stone, the only reason you have pain is because of blocked urine flow and swelling of the kidney which happens in infection and stones. If you haven't already you should really be seen by a doctor and have a CT scan done to tell which it is. Also they can measure the size of your affected kidney to see if the stone needs to be removed or if you need antibiotics.
