Here are some...: Most of kidney stones would not cause pain until moving to cause irritation or obstruction. Seeing calcium oxalate crystals is common and usually not indicative of kidney stones. Analysis of the characters of the pain usually will deduce what might be the cause of pain. To get things done correctly, follow instructions in http://formefirst.com/eNewsletter06.html.
