"Kidney"pain about 15 minutes after going to sleep

Posted By Ray Grogan on July 27, 1999 at 09:59:59
I am a 50 year old male, generally healthy. For years I have had a minor problem that I always forget about because of when it happens. My father had several kidney stones.
Just after I go to sleep there is an area where I imagine my kidney is (I don't really know what is there) that hurts enough to make me wake up. The location is in the narrow part of my waist, on the side. The side that hurts is my "down" side when I go to sleep on my side. Last night it was my left side, but I think it happens on either side. (I always go right back to sleep so it's hard to remember.) The pain gets worse fairly quickly until I do something about it. The pain stops instantly if I just roll over to the other side. The pain does not return, and never occurs at any time other than about 15 minutes after I go to sleep.
Thank you.
Ray
