Renal stones: Go to ER /urgent care now for pain medication may need antibiotics as well as may have infection . Once the pain has resolved follow up with urologist , they can test stones and see what is it made up of and direct you if needed to dietary changes that may lessen the incidence of renal colic. A nephrologist can work with the urologist to optimize renal function.
