Hello, I have an important question about my kidneys. Specifically the right kidney. I have a pain that is in my right kidney, never in my left. The pain comes and goes. Sometimes I can go for almost a year without this pain, but then out of the blue it will start up again. And last for a very long time, for a year or longer. This pain comes in waves and is always there when it is present. It is very colicky. Recently, this pain has come back with a vengeance! I had to miss three days of work because of this. I cannot pin point any time or anything specifically that triggers this pain. It is very painful. When it occurs I often need to grab onto something to hold myself up, I get chills, and I get nauseous. I have had kidney stones in the past and last I checked I did have a couple very very small ones in my kidney. But I cannot imagine that this pain is caused by these small stones, and so frequently! I drink plenty of water like my doctor suggested. I have had ultrasounds and xrays of both my kidney and gallbladder. Both of these were done while I was lying down. Would they see if I had a floating kidney if I was laying down? Do I need to be standing up for them to notice this. I am very confused about what is going on and it is taking over my life. Any insight to this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
