Sorry unsure how to edit my question above but should have said CT not cat scan.
I agree with you. Even I have had stone problem since many years. I get back pain or leg ache even when the stones are inside the kidney. Doctors have told me that if it is in the kidney it won’t pain but I disagree with them. I get very frustrated at times with this recurring problem. I have made dietary changes and also increased water consumption but new stones keep forming.
Some drs swear hey don’t, others say they do. I say from personal experience many times over they can. It could be your kidney trying to rid itself and it’s about to start moving. Start pushing a **** ton of water, drink you some aloe Vera juice this coats your tubes to make them slippery and less painful and then cranberry.. not the ocean spray sweet stuff, the tart lure stuff in a glass jar in your organic food market section and you should be fine. If it continues, go see a urologist. Your family er can refer you there. I found a suppository medication w the belladonna flower works best for my kidney pain and stones and spasms your urologist can prescribe this ornother meds, but i would be weary of narcotics other than that, as most contain Tylenol and Tylenol damages kidneys ultimately m. Change your diet around no black tea black coffee soda or too much bread.. these contain oxylates which is what forms stones in your body I switched to green tea m( more caffeine than coffee and hydrated you and is safe!) up your water too. If pain gets too bad rotate ice and heat 20 min at a Rome each and keep rotating I’m also a massage therapist and this is he best way to relax your muscles around that area or soak in a epsom salt bath too.. hope this helps anyone still reading the thread!
