Kidney Stones and Urination

I have always had a somewhat overactive bladder. However. recently the problem has become much worse and I have been told I have 2 kidney stones in My left kidney. I had some blood in the urine and pain as well, and may have in fact passed a stone.
My concern right now is the frequent urination. Can the 2 remaining stones in the kidney still be causing the urination problem if they are not moveing down the ureter? If the stones are contributing to this problem , would a medication such as Detrol help? Please advise.

Thanks

Urinary urgency and frequency may be associated with a kidney stone.  Typically, they will pass on their own.  There are some cases however, where the pain is so incapacitating that breaking up the stones (i.e. lithotripsy) can be considered.  

Other causes of urinary frequency would be any type of urinary infection and (if you are male), prostatic inflammation.  I would suggest obtaining a urinalysis to evaluate for infection.  If you are male, a digital rectal exam needs to be done to evaluate the prostate.  

If stones are causing the urinary frequency, it is unlikely that Detrol would be of benefit.  

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
