If you've ever passed a kidney stone, you're not likely to forget the experience - it can be excruciatingly painful
all kidney stones cause symptoms, infact it is not unusual for stones to be
discovered in the kidneys during X-rays for an unrelated problem. They may also
be discovered when you seek medical care for blood in your urine, recurring
urinary tract infections, or a vague pain or ache in your side - all common
symptoms of kidney stones. It's only when a stone breaks loose and begins to
work its way down the ureter that the pain becomes agonizing.
are the symptoms of kidney stones?
The most common symptom is an intense, colicky pain that may fluctuate in intensity over a period of 5 to 15 minutes. The pain usually starts in your back or your side just below the edge of your ribs. As the stone moves down the ureter toward your bladder, the pain may radiate to your groin. If the stone stops moving, the pain may stop too .If a stone stays inside one of your kidneys, it usually doesn't cause a problem unless it becomes so large it blocks the flow of urine. This can cause pressure and pain. Over the years the stone could enlarge considerably affecting the kidney function & causing a portion of the kidney to be swollen or enlarged besides leading to an increase in blood pressure. They could even cause repeated episodes of severe pain & blood in the urine. Hence it is best to treat them when they are small & can be excreted through the urine.
do kidney stones form in some people and not others?
