Just so you know kidney stone symptoms can change each time you get them. The first time my husband got them it was intense pain in his back and pain shooting down on both sides of his groin. He was doubled over in pain, had to crawl to the bathroom, very terrible. He took apple cider vingegar and drank lots and lots of cranberry juice/orange juice. His second one was lower back pain (where the kidneys are) pain in the groin, just overall sickness and soreness. Then this last one that he had: he woke up and just started peeing blood. Then a couple days later his back started hurting and then he had shooting pains in his groin area and then it would hurt to pee & then he would be peeing and the stream would stop and he felt like he wasn't able to completely empty his bladder. Another sign of a kidney stone is fever/ naseau,chills etc. I think this is a sign of an infection and a call to your Dr. is needed.

The patient usually feels pain on the lower back with no actual traumatic cause. He just feels the pain on the lower back. These kidney stones actually are formed crystals that have accumulated for quite sometime. As these crystals become disodged (travels) they create intense pain as it passes through the urinary tract and this is usually mistaken as just a simple low back pain. It is when the low back pain persist that patient consult their physician later knowing that they have actually kdney stones and not just a simple low back pain. As I always say, it is always best to consult your doctor about your health and not just rely on what you read on the internet. These are just informations that you can ask your health care provider.

Usually, the first symptom of a kidney stone is extreme pain. The pain often begins suddenly when a stone moves in the urinary tract, causing irritation or blockage. Typically, a person feels a sharp, cramping pain in the back and side in the area of the kidney or in the lower abdomen. Sometimes nausea and vomiting occur. Later, pain may spread to the groin. If the stone is too large to pass easily, pain continues as the muscles of the tiny ureter try to squeeze the stone along into the bladder. As a stone grows or moves, blood might appear in the urine. As the stone moves down the ureter closer to the bladder, you may feel the need to urinate more often or feel a burning sensation during urination. If fever and chills accompany any of these symptoms, an infection may be present. In this case, you should contact a doctor immediately.

gianbryant is right on the money. I've passed over 100 cystine kidney stones in the past year and had 4 ureteroscopic surgeries to remove big ones and had a stent placed each time. The only other symptom I can think of is if your ureter gets blocked be the stone, not only will you experience the worst of the pain but you will also experience nausea because your kidneys won't be able to filter out the toxins properly. Mostly expect a lot of pain in your flank. Try to strain your urine too. Sometimes some of the stones are so small you can't feel them pass. But then again I'm a girl and I just didn't feel the small ones - only the ones that were 3mm on up.

the most common symptom of kidney stones is a debilitating, shooting, intense pain anywhere in the abdomen. Other symptoms of kidney stones include clammy, cold, hot, or sweaty skin accompanying a fever or chills. Fever usually means the stone has caused a blockage, and your kidneys and urination cannot function normally.

I am not too sure but i believe your stomach should hurt really bad and maybe your pee will burn. I tell my husband to drink a lot of water to help flush out his kidney. It helps!
