Be evaluated now...: Sweating may be related with severe stone-related pain, nausea, & vomiting, but should make sure of not developing superimposed infection above obstructing ureteral stone, which is medical emergency; so, seek urgent check-out now and do not try to wait out. How to have evaluation done correctly? Follow instructions described in http://formefirst.com/eNewsletter06.htmll so you work better with dr.
