OK SO TO ADD TO THE CONFUSION I ALSO AM SO TIERD ALL THE TIME NOW. COULD MY BODY BE GETTING TIERD FROM TRYING TO FIGHT OFF A KIDNEY STONE OR SOMTHING LIKE THAT? COULD THE STONE BE POISENING MY BODY OR KIDNEYS? CAN YOU DIE FROM STONES? IM JUST SO WORRIED THATS ALL
Was a scan done to establish the presence of these stones?
Kidney stones may be asymptomatic depending on their size and the presence of underlying disease conditions like structural anomalies involving the urinary tract. They may present as a dull vague pain over the flank. They may present as a benign back pain. In some patients, the back may be slightly tender when the physician gently hits the area with closed fists.
The severe pain comes when the stone dislodges and travels along the ureters. The ureteral spasms may be causing these. Stones smaller that 5 mm may pass readily through the ureters and may be expelled during urination.
Discuss your concerns with your physician. Drink plenty of water and engage in regular exercises to improve circulation. In the presence of fever, abdominal pain or vomiting , an immediate consult is necessary.
Do you have any associated signs and symptoms at this point?
Any pain in urination or change in urinary frequency?
