A 36-year-old member asked:
can stone in kidney cause night sweat?

Yes: If the kidney stone blocks the ureter, intense pain can cause intense sweating. Moreover, if the stone blocks the kidney from draining urine and the urine becomes infected, the infection can act like an abscess. Not only will fever and seats occur but the kidney can be permanently damaged.
